Ride EX, Ride RX, Flow Quattro, or Flow The Five?

Newbie here. Getting a board soon but had a question about bindings. I ride mostly all mountain and don't really plan on going park until next season.

I'm considering the Ride Antic 154 board if that helps.

What is the base plate of flow bindings made of? I know the Ride bindings use aluminum but don't know about Flows.

also any other binding suggestions are welcomed. thanks!

flows website gives all the info you need on materials.the antic is a killer board. many will tell you to get the flow m series binding at the least but i never understand why. i started with the flite 1 and it was fine for a beginner binding,no complaints here. i do like flows though.

well I didnt know what the special thing they said was made up of.. only thing i could find on their website was the name of technology nothing about what is in it haha..

I like flows for their simplicity.. although i hated them when i used it on the rental because i didn't know how to get into them haha found out i had to face the mountain instead of down the slope like reg. bindings... but yea.. loved how i could snap the back down and skate to the lift haha.

Of the four you mentioned, I'd go with the Ride RX's. Aluminum and perfect for all mountain set up.

Only the Flow NXT line have the forged aluminum baseplates. I ride and love my '10 NXT AT-SE's however for the price I would go with the Ride RX's if you are looking to save the money (and can find them in large as most places I have looked are sold out).

Yea the place I'm going to get it from has a lot of them on order. It comes in a bundle with the Ride Antic for $377. I was thinking of getting the board then different bindings but guess ill just wait for them to come in.

How durable are the Flow bindings? I heard they break a lot hence the reason I wanted the aluminum base.

Ive got a '10 Ride Antic 157 with '09 RX's. The setup is made to go together, and the rx's are extremely easy to adjust. The RX's + Antic are going to let you do anything you want to do and isnt going to break on you any time soon.

Plus 377$ is killer I got mine at like 300~ which was cost. In the end the RX's will be less of a hassle off slopes, and honestly its not that hard to strap in.
