are these bindings durable? and how flexy...
are these bindings durable? and how flexy are they
Medium to stiff, More hard-charging but will respond quickly and Flow's are really light weight bindings. Definitely not a soft binding but can still perform in the park, making laps all day.
flow is not known for being the best for durability with some of their bindings... the whole easy to get on thing is overrated with these, you don't save that much time vs traditional bindings and good riders can put bindings on standing up. You will be much happier getting a pair of union bindings... forces for all mountain or contacts for park only. Union bindings are totally bombproof, are built to last and are the lightest out there. Other bindings simply aren't up to the same standards as union.
Would this binding fit to my snowboard...
Would this binding fit to my snowboard which is burton custom X 2010
you will need burton bindings... est bindings will fit no problem supposedly the normal 3 hole burton bindings will work with a plate burton sends you. You don't want flow bindings anyway, they are junk
I know this is an old post, but this guy calling Flows junk is speaking pure ignorance. Flows are great bindings. And Yes, you can ride them on a Burton with the channel. Just pick up a Flow channel disk and you'll be all set.
Good Designe Poor Construction
This is my second set of Flow bindings and I am sold on their design. They work great and provide you with the same feel everytime you step in them. The only downside is that Flow uses crappy materials. The plastic feels brittle and the gold paint used is already chipping after the first use. Bottom line is that the bindings work great but I don't know how long they will last due to the poor quality.
Great Binding, Even Better Company
I got these bindings last year at the beginning of the season. AMAZING. I live in Northern Michigan and work at a hill. I'm in my board patrolling 8 hours a day. Comfortable, easy to use and super reliable. Yeah, you have to watch you're bolts ect ect because they're bindings. The ease of entry and exit, stiffness, weight and all-around toughness is best in class. Adjustable camber is awesome. But here's the thing; I ripped a strap this year, emailed the company and got a email back within an hour. Email said (paraphrasing) send us you're address and size and we'll send you a new strap this week. No questions asked. a week later my brand new toe strap shoes up. Ask another "B" for Big company to do that. I also have the 159 Whiskey X board and it's the best board I've ever ridden, including vapors ect. The last thing I have to say is I rid cliffs, huck trees, am in the park doing big airs ect ect. I ride VERY aggressively and this stuff has never disappointed.
Great concept that actually works
Moving from my Burtons to these due to back surgery and an inability to now sit an reach forward to crank the bindings. I tried the K2 cinch straps and broke them on run three so I was a little apprehensive about these. I got mine and noted they appeared to have higher quality construction than the K2s and many more adjustments. I had read patience is key. I set mine up on my LibTech Skunk Ape, and hit the mountain. They have independant real ratchets to crank down all four strap locales so this is a real improvement form other models I have seen. The actual strap thing is like an I Beam shape and is very comfortable on the foot. I had no pressure points at all. I slid my foot in the blink of an eye and locked the high back and took off, all from a stand. They were not set quite forward enough yet but the ride was very solid, and short of the forward lean I was surprised how nice they worked. I made some more adjustments and got them as responsive as my Burtons had been. They held solid through the jumps and bumps, and speeds, and less bend and reach was a real plus. I experimented with how to solve complaints that if you need to stop along the steeps and get in them you can't. Not true. You can dig in the toe edge hard, and slip in if your balance is good. if it is not you simply drop to your knees and slip your foot in lock the highback push up and go. You totally avoid ever needing to sit on your arse and stretch then do the wild roll over twist and push up. Saves time, torque and stretch of the back. A real plus for me so I can still ride. I must say I am a full convert now these things are brilliant.
Are the mini ratchets on these aluminum...
Are the mini ratchets on these aluminum or just "chromed" plastic like on the cheaper models?
They are chromed plastic. I own a pair of the NXT AT. Not to worry though because I have taken some pretty good spills and put these things through all kinds of abuse with no indication of them breaking. They do get scratched up pretty easily but that will just give them a little more character. Kind of like battle scars!
I will have to say I just took these out for the entire long weekend and they are amazing. I can second everyone that says you have to take the time to set them up correctly. They are not a bolt on and go binding but if you take the time to put them on the board right then you will have no problems. Also the baseplate is very small so you can get a bigger size if you need to and it will still fit on your board. I have a size 11 boot so I can go large or XL going XL just increases the speed with which I can get in and out of them.
Flow bindings is where it is at. Im a adult rider 34 started when I was 15. I have had everything from ratchet to step-ins to these and if you spend the time at home getting them setup to your boots its always the same fit ride after ride. One hand pull click in while standing and then waiting on your buddies to get in so you can ride.
Nice looks, nice feel
Feels tight during the whole ride, take the time to set them up and you won't be disappointed. I wear the flow decade boots and the fit is great.
Flow bindings are super easy to get in and get out of. Love them tons!!!Great flex, great control and XLs are great for large boots, burton bindings suck for large boots, 13 in Cartels will not work, but these puppies fit great!!!
I do not have these exact bindings, but i do have a pair of flow bindings, and i must say, they are the most comfortable bindings i have ever worn. With these bindings there are no pressure points anywhere on your foot allowing for comfort and more control. Also, the snap in feature is amazing, but it gets annoying when you are waiting for friends to get their bindings on. lol. anyways. best bindings i have ever worn. dont think i will ever go back to rachet bindings.
