Default Cr*p sayings.

You don't know how flow bindings ride until you TRY THEM OUT!

and it's for the best that you do NOT listen to all the crap what people tell you on this forum.

I mean:

1. how can you look gay in flow bindings? THEY ARE JUST BINDINGS.
people can not tell your sexuality by it. so looking gay in flows is [BULLSHIT]
2. second of all, the sitting down/strapping in part is just how you experience it. if you get tired by sitting down and getting up all the time (at the park), get flows!
3. If you want your day spending on your snowboard (in the park), instead of on your butt, GET FLOWS!
4. If you think it's a pain to get in your flows at a powderterrain, STRAP IN instead of SLIDE IN. this is possible with flow bindings.
5. The performance thing is just how you experience it.
6. and the tightness of your binding around your shoe is just how you set your foot strap.

I think Flow Bindings are perfect for riding park. because you have to get in and out all of the time.
I think strap bindings are perfect for mountain terrain, because you strap in and half an hour later, you strap out.

And for the flow haters who think they look GAY in flows. Don't buy them! because you will look like you will fall in love with men! (or for the ladies, women!)

Thankyou for your time.

Step in bindings were the first ones I had. Great for convenience when getting of the lifts, but they can be a pain in the vagina when they get snow/ice in them and it becomes virtually impossible to click in. You have to keep getting your screwdriver out to clear the ice. That was a few years ago, not sure if the design has changed now? I also prefer to have a little bit of movement and freedom with my feet

Zed are you talking about the bindings that lock onto your boot via a bar or locking mechanisim on the boot and binding??? If so that is not what the Flows are now or for many many years.

Advancing intermediate here. FWIW, bought some Ride EXs and Flow the Fives at the same time coupla seasons ago. Took me a day or two to dial the Flows in. Once I got used to the Flows, I tried riding the Flows and EXs back to back (same board) a day at a time to see if I could tell the difference. Couldn't. Sold my EXs. All I have now is two pairs of Flows for my quiver.

Haven't been stuck in deep powder (yet) where I can see the Flows becoming a liability. Will get me a pair of two-strappers when I find myself in those conditions on a regular basis. Untill then, no wet butt, ride off with my skier buddies...

Yup, like their customer service but like the reliability of the bindings better . Haven't had a problem except for stripping screw heads and such (user error). Even then, Flow was quick to send me replacement screws.

Nor have I, my 1st pair had the power strap and to undo the ratchets is no more difficult than a pair of traditional bindings. The new design is even easier.

I'm like you, love 'em and not looking back
