Simple and easy to use.
Once you have them dialed in they are easy to use and now more sitting in the snow while your twin stick friends race buy you! They are easy to fine tune also.
Cinch vs M9
So I've been able to ride the Flow M9's and now these rear-entry bindings and I have to say these are the better bindings if you're into all-mtn vs park, otherwise, the Flow's have more flex and quicker adjustments. I've been a fan of rear entry bindings ever since I tried the M9's but I was looking for something with quicker response and more stability. The Cinch delivered with a heel cup versus n/a on the M9 and fixed last year's issue of not having an adjustable toe strap. However, it sill lacks tool-less forward lean, unlike the Flow's, which I kind of miss every now and then. They do have a lighter base, better shock absorbers, and they're much easier to strap in traditionally than the Flow's. Honestly, the best thing to do with bindings is to try them and with BC's awesome return policy, you only lose out on shipping even after using them on the mtn. Keep up the great work, guys!
Easy set up
I gave 4 starts because so far they have been easy to set up, and easy to get into and out of when messing around on the carpet at home. I jumped around with them set up on the board to test them, and they not feel bulky. They feel very stable and comfortable. I like that i'm able to zone them in to where I want them tighter or looser. I got them in mid-March right when all the snow was melting up here (bummer) so I haven't taken them on the hill yet, but once I do I will update.
I love these K2 Cinch CTS bindings. I rode on a pair of Flow for 2 years.The high back started to break on the second season because it does not fold down all the way when getting on the chairlift at my local resort.Also when loading up the roof box the Flows again do not fold down enough and limits the amount of equipment that I can get into the roof box. The K2's version of the step in is much better. They may be a bit heavy if you plan to do the pipes and rails, but for me (an all mountain carver) they are perfect.

where is the best palce for ks cinch parts?
The cable guide on the heel strap has a piece broken off and I assume it just replaces as its has an allen key fixing.
Going to czech republic on friday and need part asap - can anybody help?
Overall these bindings are alright. I used to have the 2006 versions, which were great, but then they broke. At first these started out a little stiff and i have to admit they didnt seem as durable as my 06's, but after a couple of weeks they are working like a charm. Plus i got the replacement part for my 06's so i can use those too. I'm really not sure why this other guy is a cry baby because A) This is a good binding and B) you can easily get replacement parts for very cheap
Good idea bad design
Liked the concept a lot coming off back surgery and tiring of sitting on my a@$ to do bindings. Unfortunately early in their first day of use (3rd run) the cable guide snapped and rendered theme useless. it turns out it may look like metal but it is plastic. It is under some stresses as it takes some strength to pull these shut and locked and in closing them I heard pop and there it lay in two pieces. Cool idea, but flawed materials idea....suppose they went plastic to counter weight complaints. Sent mine back got my refund and put back on my Burtons and called it a day.

Are these rear entry bindings?
Are these rear entry bindings?
Yep. You can run them either way. Rear entry, or get into them as a traditional two strap binding.
