What color Flux bindings?

I just picked up the newly redesigned 2011 Bataleon Evil Twin for a park and mess around board. I'm gonna get the 2011 Flux TT30 to go on it. I also considered the RK30 and DS45 which have urethane backs, but in the end I think this one will be more versatile for all-mountain use for my size and riding style.

Anyways, it comes in 3 colorways, and I like each in their own way. Not asking you to choose for me, but just curious which one you'd choose?










Here's the board for reference:

I love those flat black ones! I wish they'd offered that last year instead of the glossy black. I'll always take matte > glossy.

I too like the flat black. I fondled a pair last week, and they're one of the best looking bindings I've seen.

purple for sure...green will look goofy and black will be unnoticeable. although the ds45's are sick.

Get these and just switch out your highbacks from your Feedbacks just make sure you have them set up to be a bit softer.


Or to confuse you a bit on choices try

The SE30 will have a little softer Highback then the TT30 but stiffer then the RK30 But still have the same base plate as the TT30 and RK. They do lack the tool less though.

The season is almost upon us!!!!

I'm not really digging the white/purple one as much. The green really pops, and although I feel too old to rock it, I think that's what I'm gonna go with. I do love matte black, but I already have a set of all black (albeit gloss) Flux Feedbacks, so I decided to go with something different. Hope I don't regret it haha.

My vote would be for green. I think it will look good on a white topsheet with a small amount of blue tied in there

That's what I was thinking too. Since the board is almost all white on top, they'll really stand out. Probably better that the green won't match the teal accents too. I'll post pics when I get them in.

Got them in yesterday along with my new Flux DMCC also. I'll be taking better pics when I write up some reviews later on.

That's a fucking high roller right there!! I want to know if there is a noticable difference between the stiffness of the DMCC's and the Feedbacks. I'm talking myself out of buying a pair of TT's to replace my Force. My gf would kill me.
