i was watching some freestyle on tv and i see those guys wear their toe strap in in front of their boots if you know what i mean. I usually just wear it over my toes. is the toe strap in front style more suited for park riding? is there a huge difference between the two?
Are you referring to toe caps? If so, I believe the common concensus is that they are more responsive than toe straps. Personally I wouldn't consider buying bindings that don't have them, although I am intrigued by Flow's design. And I don't believe they are more suited for park riding than all mountain, as PanHandler said they are simply "better suited for ALL riding."
the toe cap strap is better suited for ALL riding. It removes the numbness that you can get when you have a traditional toe strap, and it also pushes your boot back into the binding and keeps it there, so you wont get any boot slip when you go heavy on your toe edge. Plus they are stylin.
It depends on the straps design. Some are made to go over the top, some are made to only be cap straps, and some are made to work in both possitions. I would only ever ride two strap bindings that are cap straps. Flows are a whole different beast.
I have one pair of bindings with a traditional toe strap, one pair with the cap strap, and one pair that is made to do either. I prefer the traditional placement over the foot.
