Flow NX2, NX2 GT, Fuse & Fuse GT 2015 - Q&A

STOKED!

Some core changes are coming to the 2015 NX2 and Fuse lines from Flow. The big ones are flex distinctions, toecap design, and model structure.







We will be happy to answer any Q's about these models or the new naming structure.

Nice! I'm actual thinking about Flow after seeing the You Tube. The feature I'm most interested in; the adjustable highback.

Which model and strap do you recommend for a Burton Custom X?

A few Q's. Are you looking at a current season purchase or are you asking about the new 2015's? What type of riding are you doing? Which highback are you referring to?

I've got to give Flow props for their marketing. Developing a new binding yet keeping obvious features out of the first year line to save for following years.

Both actually. I'm looking at 2014 of some other brands but like some of the changes Flow made with the 2015.

Problems I had with 2001/2002 Flow AMP 9: Longitudinal flex was not stiff enough when used with my 2000 Morrow Blaze. But the highback with cable was so stiff, it was not forgiving if I landed off balance.

I'll be using the 2014 Custom X when going out on a date (gf skier), mostly groomers and steeps.

The You Tube showed a flexible highback on the Fuse line and mentioned that the cable could now be height adjusted. I'd like to lower the cable height but be able to keep tension high so the straps can lock my boots down for longitudinal flex.

I would highly suggest not using your experiences with the 2001/2 bindings as a reference point. The current bindings are so different from those older models. 12 years is a long time in binding evolution .

I would also suggest selecting the model with the highback flexibility that you want and use the cable adjustment only to set the desired forward lean (do not relax the cable to adjust flex).

In current bindings you may like the softer flexing base and Nylon heelcups used in the Fuse line. The NX2 for next year will have a Nylon heelcup paired with the NX2 base. This will offer a flex option that is currently not present in the 2014 lineup.

Definitely gonna look into next years NX2 GT's. I've really liked what Flow has been putting out for the last couple seasons. I like the Hybrid cap strap since I will want the traditional toe cap. I didn't really dig this years GT toe cap with the webbing look. Cant wait...better start saving...

Thanks for posting these videos. I'm seriously debating pulling the trigger on a pair of 2014 Flow NX2-RS. However, I'm also tempted to wait for the NX2 GT, which seems to be next year's NX2-RS? Are you guys ending the RS line?

Also, will the new interchangeable strap be compatible with 2014 RS?

Curious, is there any other changes besides the interchangeability of the strap b/w the 2014 and 2015 models?

Hi,

Not quite. There will be no RS models for 2015. The NX2 GT will now be offered two ways (with and without a toe cap). The new GT option will be the NX2 GT with a conventional Flow Strap (no toecap for those who prefer that). This is not a feature of interchangability of straps between model years but rather a cleaner line for the upcoming model year.

NX2 and Fuse lines are much easier to understand next year. There are two models in each line: NX2, NX2 GT, Fuse, and fuse GT. Each of these four can be ordered with either the toe cap strap or the traditional Flow strap. No mention has been made of selling alternate straps.
