If you go flow, go with these.
I have owned/used many pairs of Flows over the years and these are the BEST binding Flow has ever made. Light weight and comfortable. Problems with hardware working its way loose hasn't been a problem with these either. If your going to go Flow pay the extra $ and get these.
If I wear a Burton size 9 with the shrinkage...
If I wear a Burton size 9 with the shrinkage technology (so it's like a 8) can I rock a size medium or should I get a large?
Well the L/XL bindings usually start fitting boots 11 and up properly. Anything smaller will be moving around too much in the cage, especially because you have shrinkage tech on your boots. I would go for the M because thats size of binding your boot is made for anyways. If you have a problem, just send them back and DF with exchange them for you no probiesss. But really, if ur gonna spend $220 I wold tell you to get a pair of Unions. They are BOMBPROOF, lightweight, super responsive, crazy cush, and just an all around killer binding company. Look them up and see what you think. Better product for less money, uuuummm yes please lol. Hope this helps brotha
Hey guys, will these on a Forum Destroyer...
Hey guys, will these on a Forum Destroyer be a good combo? and What boots can I mate them with? I prefer Boa's if possible.
Only ever ridden with flows
Ridden these things since 1996, even still have an old pair of their carbon fibre baes ones, a little heavy comparied to my NXTs I ride now.
Love the fact I can jump off a lift straight into riding and clip up on the move, all my mates ride them now as they got fed up being left behind at the top of the lift.
OK they suck in deep powder if you are facing downhill, or laying downhill, but just makes you better at not falling in the powder.
These bindings are awesome - I was riding plastic Burton bindings until the base broke a few weeks ago, and I figured what the hell and bought these.
The responsiveness of the bindings are amazing, I've had some groomer days and pow days - they perform in all conditions. I never thought I would want anything other than toe cap, but I don't miss them a bit - the aluminum base is well insulated for vibrations and is so snappy, I'll never go back!!
I never knew there were this much of a difference in bindings. I upgraded from Flow Amp 9's and WOW! The NXT's are Great! It's like having your boots screwed to your board. They are very light. And with the stiff aluminum base, the board moves with every move you make! Great choice. I'm very happy I bought them. And after a few weeks of searching, Dogfunk had the best price.
Why would you buy anything else...Flow's rock!
Seriously, these things rock. After reading all the junk online about Flow's and their good and (mostly) bad points, I took the plunge and purchased the NXT's anyway. Turns out...to be the BEST thing I ever did.
If you take the time to dial them in correctly, you will never look back
(but should you happen to look back, all you will see is the poor buggers without Flow's sitting down to clip in). Never again will this be me.
Flow in Flow out
Purchased a pair of these and took them to Japan last week. They are so easy to clip in ... straight off the chair, one click and your shredding the mountain. No more sitting down messing about with ratchets. Best binding ever!
These are a very comfortable binding and are far more responsive than my old Flows. (I was working on bumps this weekend and the padding on the bindings [and board] really smoothed out the ride.)
There are lots of options for the set up, and you may need to spend a bit more time than you might to expect to get them just right. They are very easy to get into. In fact, I could strap-in faster tnan my skiing buds took to click into thier bindings.
Don't spend much time in the park, but the bindings were super for the all mountain riding that I do. They are quite an improvement from the older Flow model that I was using (but also cost a lot more).
Are the mini ratchets on these aluminum...
Are the mini ratchets on these aluminum or just "chromed" plastic like on the cheaper models?
i have these bindings and the ratchets are aluminum
Very easy to set and pleasure to use
Hi, they are worth every cent. Great quality, light and responsive.
Hi would you tell me what size is best for...
Hi would you tell me what size is best for me? I have EU 42.
Go with Large.
L = 40-45 EU
i have used these bindings 2 times and the screw that holds the straps in place has snapped off
first try with flows
DISCLAIMER: RAMBLING REVIEW AHEAD:
So this is my first experience with flows other than 1 run on a pair of old cheap flows that weighed about 75 lbs and had 0 responsiveness.
I'm in my thirties, been riding since high school. I'm new in the park, and am mainly an all mountain freerider. I'll basically ride anything, anytime, anywhere, but prefer as steep as you can get it, as deep as you can get it, and preferably with a lot of trees in the mix as well.
These fse's ride like a dream. It took a solid day to tweak the setup to perform to my likings, but once dialed, were great. I had zero pressure points, zero issues with heel lift or unresponsiveness...zero issues altogether.
To address some typical gripes about flows (including my own concerns going into the purchase):
1) "they shred your boots". I ride salomon f22's and had no problem with the hiback eating the rubber off the back of my boot.
2) "they're a pain to get into and out of in deep pow". I got buried in waist deep pow on one of the early season dump days, and didn't have any trouble getting out of the binders. To get back in, I just faced toeside uphill, planted the edge, and kicked in only minor problems. What's even better with these new binders is that if you do get buried (which I did again later in a tree well) or are having problems getting in, you can keep the hibacks locked up, and unstrap the I-strap like a traditional binding with the ratchets. Just as easy to get in and out of as a traditional setup--clutch design tweak, and if you mark your straps with a sharpie once they're dialed, you can go right back to your preferred setup.
3) "the binders are unresponsive and I get heel lift" These actually feel just as responsive as my 09 ride SPI's. The only complaint I could foresee is if you're totally, totally set on the toe cap style (for response, not comfort), you might not like the unavailability of that option on these.
I can't speak on the durability of these, as I've only ridden them 15 days so far, but in those 15 days, have had no mechanical failure issues.
I bought these to replace my ride contrabands. I ride a 12.5 foot, and after hours of tweaking, couldn't get the contrabands to ever fit quite right. I love the idea, and if you have a foot size 11 or smaller, I'd recommend them, but for us big footers, it wasn't worth the hours of combined effort of all the shop reps and myself to try to dial them. They just don't adjust out enough to ride as intended, plus they lack the microadjustments I craved.
Overall, I love these flows. They are the most cushy, comfy bindings I've ever ridden. They're easy to get in and out of (the skiing gf doesn't have to wait for me). They flex well, but are still super responsive. The only question mark that remains is the durability, but so far so good. I'd suggest demoing a pair, and if they feel good for your foot/boot, don't hesitate. Have fun out there!
the bindings seem pretty good so far for the set up i have. they are on a lit tech board and have had no problems with them i would highly recommend them if you go riding in resorts alot but i WOULDN`T get them if you do alot of back country!!
