What Flux binding to get

So I currently have ride contrabands. I'm looking for something a little less stiff not floppy or anything but the contrabands are a little stiff for what i do. I mainly ride everywhere but i don't like the how stiff the contrabands are plus i feel like the heelside response is lacking.

If you feel like heelside response sucks on those and still want something softer really the only thing I can think of that is gonna hand that is 2012 Flow Quattro SE's.

From Flux you want RK30's.

Its not the stiffness but the toe strap of the contrabands that make heelside turns not feel right to me.

Fair enough. You could try regular Quattro's. That's what I rode on my Signal Park J.O.E. most of last season. I quite like them and they will stay on my jibstick(s) for a while. M9se's and probably Raiden Phantoms/Zeros will be on my more all over the mountain freestyle park deck.

You mentioned the rk30's earlier with the urethane highback. wouldn't that be a little to flexible for all mountain?

They aren't too too soft for all mountain, but better would be DS30's. They're a little softer than TT30's but the Highback is stiffer than the RK's.

TT 30's are a great option as well. The back was really comfortably for me. How heavy are you?

RK 30's are another great option. At lighter weights (140 lbs included) the Urethaned highbacks will still provide good support with the twist flex benefits you are already aware of.

Check out the Flux DS30s or the RK30s. The new toe straps are ohhhh sooo epic....They fit perfect and give you a soft flex through the highback.
