Default Another FLOW NXT thread

I know I know lots of these threads going around lately... my bad

Just curious though, which pair of the "NXT" series is based mainly for freestlye / park? Like the most flexy ones?


I gave old pair of 09' NXT AT's and I miss my flows. Love my 390's but I want another pair of flows,

Flites and Quattros are entry and mid level respectively hence their flex. Their soft flex has more to do with being forgiving for beginners than for park.

Flow's park bindings:

NXT-AT
NXT-ATSE
NXT-FS
NXT-FSE
M-9

Scotty Lago was rocking the 2011 Flow NXT-ATSE's at the Olympics, but rode the M-9's up until then. Anti Autti has always been rocking the AT/SE's.

I ride the NXT-FSE's. I love them. Wouldn't dare give it away.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to demo the 390's this year so I can't make that comparison. I did notice that they were considerably lighter than a lot of the bindings that I did demo for 2011.

Heavier than the FSE:

Burton Mission, Cartel, CobraSharks

Ride Delta, SPI

K2 Auto Ever

Flow M9

Lighter Than FSE:

Burton C02 is really all that I can remember being lighter or similar to the FSE. The ATSE is also similar actually. Of course this is all based off of my memory so it's not entirely accurate. I guess you can just walk away with this much... The FSEs are light enough!

I really liked the ATSE actually. Those were going to be my bindings of choice, but my discount made me get the lighter FSEs. Like I said, the FSEs are lighter, but the ATSEs are not very far behind at all. I believe this is mainly due to the FSE's aluminum highback. One thing I did notice though is that the FSE was a bit more comfortable and felt more sturdy than the ATSEs. So bombing down steeps and landings felt a little better with the FSE. Freestyle-wise, these two were neck and neck.

You can't go wrong with either and with the current discount rates, the FSE is only about $10 more. It'll basically boil down to your color preference and if an ounce or two difference in weight really matters to you.

Shameless plug if you can't find good prices (even then, we match it)

Color's don't matter to me

But thanks a lot man, Went with the FSE's. Actually purchased them off the link you provided cause that seem'd to be as cheap as I could get them (i'm cheap and there are no local shops around where I live worthwhile). So nice salesmanship too haha

I'm stoked too get back into flows!
