Flow Binding 2012 Q & A thread
 
Hi Guys,

We are just back from SIA in Denver and I wanted to open up a thread for Q and A on Flow 2012. The lineup looks INSANE!

Higlights on bindings include Urethane multi-adjustable highbacks, Mind blowing weight savings, and refinements of straps, cables, and ratchets.

Any questions on Flow 2012, ask away. We are stoked to be going on our 16th year as a Flow dealer!

Cool I have a question. I bought Flow- The fives bindings a couple weeks ago and love em, only problem is when I undo the back to step in, it has some kind of spring-like retention, and causes the back to spring back up before i can get my boot in. This makes it kind of awkward getting my foot in because i have to bend down and hold the back down while stepping in.

Is there a way to adjust this or stop it from happening?

thanks.

Look under your bindings towards the heel area. There should be guides where your cable is set. You can loosen the tension by setting the cable to the guides closest to the heel.

Thats happening cause the cables are used to being in the position the were in the box. Moving the cables wont do anything. Two things that will help, tighten the nut that holds the highback to the frame. Extra friction between the highback and frame will help resist the highback coming back up. Second is to fold down the highback at home and store the board upside down for a while in a way that completely extends the highback, basically breaking in the cable.

Will they offer canting?

What this man said.

They are not.

Cants on Ride, K2, Raiden, Burton (auto mostly), Forum (also an auto), and Rome.

Flow's Rocker Base Plate Technology would not be a good match for canting. I have not heard any talk of moving in that direction. Each of Flow's baseblates, from glass filled Zytel to T6 heat treated Aluminum all use a unique rocker base plate. All of these are designed for minimal board contact to allow the board to flex as naturally as possible. Bindings Like Burton's EST Cant rely on a wider mounting platform which is contrary to Flow's goals with their Rocker baseplates. All of the bindings that I am aware of that go with the Wedgie style canting are broader in the base and are flat or very near flat on the board contact side.

Yeah, I had exactly the same behaviour with my Fives and my NXT-AT's. The highbacks started off by springing up when they were new, but within a couple of weeks they'd just flop down. Just let them break in.
