Flow's Rocker Base Plate Technology would not be a good match for canting. I have not heard any talk of moving in that direction. Each of Flow's baseblates, from glass filled Zytel to T6 heat treated Aluminum all use a unique rocker base plate. All of these are designed for minimal board contact to allow the board to flex as naturally as possible. Bindings Like Burton's EST Cant rely on a wider mounting platform which is contrary to Flow's goals with their Rocker baseplates. All of the bindings that I am aware of that go with the Wedgie style canting are broader in the base and are flat or very near flat on the board contact side.
