Default Flow bindings and travel

Hey guys. I've always been a traditional binding guy and recently bought some Flow NX2 SE's. Thought I'd give them a try and see how they work for me. My only question is how do those that have or use flow, position the high backs in your board bag when you travel. Traditional bindings can fold forward toward the footbed and be secured. Do you disengage the cable and lean the highback forward? Simple question I guess. I have no experience with these type of bindings but am looking forward to busting these out for some final runs of the season. Thanks.

You don't have to release the cable to get them to go forward. They fold up just like a normal binding nothing special you need to do. Easy Peasy.

Yup, open up one side of the power strap and fold the high-back down. I always mark the ratchet straps (with a Sharpie) once I've got my Flow's dialed in so that I know exactly where they should be.

Awesome. Thanks guys. Didn't know if the cable hindered them from being folded down.

Good call on the sharpie!

Flow's pretty decent in powder? I'm looking forward to just shaving some time off my strap in time with these bad boys after waiting in the powder line. Skiers already have a one up in the pre-drop dept with being able to click and go after stepping off the tram.

I think that most people find flow bindings more difficult to get into when in a powder situation.

Besides the obvious added difficulty of kicking into something sideways on powder, wadded up snow can make fitting your boot back in tricky.

Sitting down or deep snow removes the benefits. But then they still function like strap ins.
