It has nothing to do with being lazy. Its the most comfortable for my flat wide feet. Ive gone through 15 bindings trying to find the right ones. I have the other bindings sitting cause like I said before. I aquired them in a trade and wanted to try the ones I bought first. I think it has to do with the hard toe sides. Although I dont see any locking tabs in mines. Ill check again.

Again this has nothing to do with being lazy. Its the most comfortable bindings Ive tried.

call flow, I guarantee you they will send you a free locking bar. The bar that you snap up on the highback. I bet you the little locking part of it is worn down....

Hmmm must have never got that part. Yea mines are worn but thats why I went to the 2002s where they dont have the locking part. It just flips up and holds it under pressure(which is how I can see my bindings popping off now)

this what I said....

My NXT's and M9's both have locking tabs. A lock in the lever and a small tab on the high back. Mine are newer but I would think you would need something to lock the lever's no matter how old they are, like yours.

Or your cable is so stretched that it can't hold proper tension under toe-side carving/turns.

2002 Flow bindings do not have the "Snap Lock" highback..They just flip up and are held up by tension only.I have had mine flip down only 2 times in 5 years.I have 2005 Team bindings and 2010 NXT AT's the 2010 have the Snap Lock.

I confirm this. They sent me a spare strap to Moscow for free.

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.



/end rant.
