Well they aren't. But they are softer than like a TT30. They make a good jib binding. Unless you have a fairly narrow shaped boot you'll like the Flux's.

Talking rk 30'sssss

I have rk 30's right now and I love them, soooo delicious in the park the high back needs to break in a bit before it bends a lot


Get rk 30's you won't regret it. Btw how do contraband's compare?

Get the Medium...I have the large and a size 10 and they're too big. I have to push the binding so the toe ramp is hanging off the board in order to center the boot.

The urethane hi-back on the RK30's and DS45's are super soft.

Definitely softer than Rome 390 Boss bindings.

Mediums. That's what I was using and I wear a 9. 10's will work just fine in mediums.

finally found a flux binding chart and it says up to 9.5 for medium and some guy asked if 10's would fit a large and flux said that the mediums would be better so i think i've found my size. FOR ONE LAST FINAL TIME THOUGH, does everyone agree that the flux rk30's are the most flexy park binding out there??

Nooo? They aren't the softest. I do think they are the best for what you want.

The softest is gonna probably be Hurrithanes. But I think the RK's are better than Hurrithanes.

hey nivek thanks for all the help bro, pretty sure im ordering them tonight. just one last question
I've got a 149 skate banana, is this binding going to pair up well with the flex and everything. Certainly seems like it seeing as the rk30's pride themselves on having a skate feel to them and with the skate banana it sure sounds good lol. Just wanted to see what everyone else thought
