I am looking into new bindings this year and I can't really decide between the Flux SF45 or the Rome Targas. I ride all mountain, backcountry, the steeps, moguls, some trees, and not really any park. The only difference I know right now between the two bindings is I like the look of the Flux's more.
Both are great bindings, and until I tried Flux, the Rome Targa was my fav all-mountain binding ever. I got last year's Feedbacks and they had even better toe straps, super cushy ankle strap, and just a great design. This year's SF45 is just a tad better now that they've added some cushioning to the footbed. That white w/woodgrain colorway looks so sick too!
Hey Triple8, I'm surprised you said the toe straps on the fluxs are better than Romes. I didn't find flux's toe straps to work as well as Rome's when used over the toe. Although I do agree both binders would be a great choice.
Not sure if one of us is misunderstanding the other. I always use toestraps as a cap, not on top. Neither one has ever slipped on me like Burton & Union, but I just found the Flux straps to be more comfy, as comfy as say...on a Rome 390, but still more responsive.
Ha, I've also narrowed my binding choices to these two. Everyone says the strap on the 390's are much more comfy than the Targas. What would be the effect of putting the 390 heel strap on the Targas? Would it defeat the purpose of the Targa or is it really the highback that is different between the two. The SF45's kinda seem like the best of both worlds with the cushy straps and the high responsiveness of the Targas.
