Flow Nxt-at

i just got my flow nxt-at and trial fitted them on my boots,

but the problem is it doesnt seem to slip on easy enough as it gets stuck at the rear of my boots!!

i'm sure i bought right size, i'm on US10.5 DC boots and bought large size bindings

my question is.. are they suppose to be like that?? this means i have sit on my knees to do up the bindings...

once your top strap (forget flows name for it) wears in a little more it will be easier. Also make sure that you havnt overtightened the power ratchets. Additionally when you put your boot in when its not wet it tends to push the "strap" forward which restricts how far forwards your foot can go. I used to just pull it back towards my shin again and slip my boot in a tad further.

Congrats on your new bindings!

There are multiple ways to use/enter your Flow bindings. It sounds like you are looking to set the ratchets once and then use the kick-in only method, and that works perfectly, but may not be intuitive.

We suggest the following setup advice:

Unlock all of the adjustment points on the strap. Set each to the very last tooth on the ladder strap (largest position). Insert your foot (boot must be tightly laced - do not set up with a loosely laced boot). Position your foot so that the highback can clear the heel (but just clear it-as far back as possible). Ratchet the adjustment points, tightening the strap down firmly on your boot. The binding is now ready to ride. When you go to kick in again, your boot will not get all the way in. It will be resting on the highback. That is correct.
From this position, pull up on the high back, and stand down on your heel. The boot will "shoehorn" into place with little to no resistance. As your boot will always be moist from snow when in real use, this is very easy when riding, a bit harder when dry.

Stoked for you and enjoy your new gear!!!
