I had previously posted a review(below) on this product shortly after buying it, and at the time was not entirely sure if they were right for me. I decided to make some adjustments with the four ratchet straps for a different fit, then forced myself to just ride and use them for a couple of days. I was so used to traditional strap-in bindings and strapping in by putting my heel in first before the toes, it felt quite awkward. Now that I have gotten used to them, they are fast for getting in and out of, responsive(after doing fine adjustments with the ratchets on the sides and "breaking them in" for a couple of days), and my preferred binding of choice now. They make take some getting used to for some, but fit right, they are comfortable, responsive, fast, and have suited me very well, when instructing, ski(board) patrolling, and recreationaly used.
Flow bindings are good for beginners but if you are looking to step it up don't go with these. The problems are numerous so let me list them: It takes 4 or 5 runs to get the bindings adjusted right, the ratchets suck and are hard to work, once you have them tight enough for good response your foot goes numb which is probably due to the fact that strap puts all the pressure on the center of your foot and does not distribute it evenly, its very difficult to get the highback up when the bindings are tightened properly and when pulling up the highback it feels like its going to break.
I have an old pair of flows and although the new ones are an improvement its not worth the money.
If you want something like flows but better check out the K2 Cinch bindings.
These binding are a joke. I thought i could save some time gettin out an in and making it to the top with these. Yeah they were great for like the first 4-5 runs, then two bolts on the front snaps broke. Never the less sending me adjacent of the jump. I nearly busted my leg. I will never recommend this type or brand to anyone.
I have 7 days on these bindings, and have had 3 of 4 "front pods" break, a strap break, and the main "common bolt" come out while riding. Paint is chipping off of the highback, the metal frame of the buckles and rust has begun to form. Quality on these is horrible. My last bindings (Drake) lasted 8 years, these may make it one season.
The ride is great, and convenience is good. If I had to do it all over again, I'd go with something else.
I bought these bindings for my boyfriend before we went on a 4-day trip to Tahoe. Too bad that halfway through our first down on the mountain, both of these Flow bindings broke! After doing some research, looks like there are issues with one small plastic part, but what a drag!
The Flow bindings allow for rear-entry access into the binding which seems like a good idea, but isn't perfect. Since the highback folds toward the ground to allow for access, the snow gets in the way. This makes getting in and out of the bindings much different than other bindings and not all that easy at times. Otherwise a good set of comfortable bindings.
I definitely love riding these bindings. They are sooo lite, but give great flex and support. There are a couple of bugs though that Flow needs to work out. They've broken on me twice. Once on the forward outside toe binding screw and once at the same place except the actual plastic strap. Flow has corrected the first issue:
Hopefully the strap was just a fluke.
The Flow NXT AT bindings are my new favorite. I always thought they wouldn't allow the support I need for the deep mash potatoes we get pounded with in Washington. They broke in after the third day and now they allow me a little more freedom than before. Not to be taken lightly, these bindings are worth the investment. I just wish they were made in the USA.
As an avid snowboarder and ski patrolman, I was looking for a quick in-and-out binding when patrolling and teaching on my board. I don't care for traditional step-in bindings but needed something quicker than straps. This hybrid style seemed to be a nice alternative. The Flows are NOT as responsive a traditional strap-in, but better than step-ins. The bindings themselves I think are great for the right person, but with my love-hate relationship with the Flows, I'm not entirely sure I would buy them all over again.
All in all, I'd say this binding really depends on your style of riding, purpose for getting it, etc. I would say for freestyle and someone looking for a binding quicker than a strap in with responsiveness, these are good way to go.
These new Flow bindings are awesome. I have a pair of one of the first years flow bindings and have been riding them for almost 10years. They served me well. These new ones are a lot easier to adjust with the new ratchets. They are also much lighter and stiffer so you don't need to have very stiff boats. Not that you needed them before. I also like the new base plate cover to help prevent the build up of snow.
I really like these bindings. They are as light and more comfortable than any strap bindings. I love the ratchets that are now built into the strap. As expected these have more flex than my Flow Team bindings and I like these better for riding the park.
