Question New bindings for a NS Pandora?

Initially I was going to put my Burton bindings from my old board on my new one but... I'm thinking maybe new bindings would be better? What would be the pros/cons of using my old bindings versus buying new ones?

I know absolutely nothing about bindings. I've only been snowboarding for two seasons so I'm not going anywhere near parks anytime soon. I'll just be doing the basics for the time being. Since I got everything two years ago I don't remember which bindings I currently have but I do know I'm using Burton's Coco boots if that helps any I'm also 5'0, 110lbs. I'll just throw that out there too.

Advice and suggestions are greatly appreciated

Hi,

That board deserves some great bindings. Very hard to beat the Flow Prima SE's if they are in the budget.



What is your foot size?

My gf rides the Flux GU30 on her Pandora. She loves them and I can personally say that Flux are the most comfortable binding I have ever strapped on.

She also has Rome Madisons on her Infinity but does just prefer the Flux for comfort and goes to them more often.

If it's a real goose, is it propaganda?

Thanks for the input!

What exactly is the different between the two straps as with the Flux GU30 and the one big strap as with the Flow Prima in terms of feel and comfort?

Wiredsport, my boot size is a women's US 7. With the Flow Prima's, all of the online stores only have medium. Would that be too big? I'm pretty sure my current bindings are a small.

Hi Nicole,

Disclaimer, we sell every model, size, and color of Flow and Flux bindings and I am very biased.

So with that out there, you cant buy a better Female specific strap binding than the GM-30 or a better rear entry model that the Prima.

For 16 years Flow has focused on articulating back bindings. They invented (and perfected?) that design. The bindings are not only extremely supportive, but they offer rear and side entry options as well as incredible freedom and reduction of hot spots which can be a feature of poorly designed straps on 2 strap models.

Flux went the other route. They set out to perfect the two strap binding. They did this by re-thinking and reshaping every component. The have patented FTM toe straps which are as comfy as the get and 3d ankle straps which hold and flex in a completely seamless flow with your riding. The GM 30 is an insane female specific model. My wife and daughter were blown away by this binding.
