Not to just be a hater.
But, i absolutely HATE my Flows.
Bought them because i was never good at getting up when first strapping in, found it easier to use the Flows, plus they were 75$ off..
But, i noticed a BUNCH
of heel lift when i trying to go on my toe edge, making it so much harder to control and really taking a toll on my legs having to try harder to carve toe edge.
And yes, i set them up properly, even with the ankle part of the strapping system as tight as it could possibly go, my heel would still lift up at least an inch and a half, if not more. Either, i didnt set them up properly, which, i cant see how you couldnt, they are simple!
Or, they are not for me..
Ordered a pair of 2012 Rome Arsenal(bright Yellow!)
Stoked to get on some traditional bindings.
The convenience of flows was nice, i thought about getting K2 Cinch, but, couldnt find any decently priced online, and when i went to look at them at my local shop(which is HORRIBLY overpriced) i decided to go for the Arsenal.
