Default Help with Flows!?

Hey everyone I recently just purchased the 2012 flow m9se's. I am already very stressed out as the directions give no assistance on all the adjustments and I can't find any tutorial videos. However I am not even sure if my boots fit the bindings right. They advertised the large binding to fit up to size 11, but I can't tell if my size 11 boots are too big? If anyone can offer assistance on this it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Are the boots too big?

Please watch this at least 4 times and then readjust your bindings.
Larges should fit an 11 ok (i think). I rock a size 12 boot and buy the XL's tho.

I have seen that video before. Unfortunately the 2012 bindings have a different setup than the previous years models. This is why I am struggling so much to get everything adjusted.

Oh wow, really? How much diff can it be???
As long as your highback is comfortable when you lock in, and your toes/heels are centered you should be fine. I assume they didn't eliminate the mini rachets all together, right?

On one of the sides there are no longer mini ratchets but instead an adjustable screw system. Also I don't quite understand how to adjust the highback? How far forward should it push against my boot? I had to move the screws at the base to move the highback further back to allow my boot to be centered and I pulled out the front adjustment to allow for my massive boots. Other then these adjustments am I good to go? I'm still not sure how it will be easy to get my boots in and out of these flows and I rode flows all last year. Just upgraded for this season.

How hard would it be to change for XL's?

You're fine man, I wear 11's and my Lg Flow NXT-FSE's fit great. Just adjust the side without the mini ratchets so that when your boot is in they are a little off center, then when you tighten your mini ratchets it should center the binding right up. It just takes a little fiddling to get the right setup but you will find it.

It wouldn't be a big deal to change to a larger size but I am also getting new boots in a smaller size. The 11's are too big for me I had too much toe room. Also I am looking for a lightweight boot that will compliment the flow bindings in the terrain park. Any help would be great especially on terrain park boot suggestions.

The screws were featured on the several versions last year. I think they call them the gross adjusting screw or something. It is to reduce weight of having 4 ratchets

On some models the high back lever has a dial to adjust the forward lean on the high back. Not sure if your M9's do my NXT's do

Yours should have this screw too



Hard to tell from the pic but you might be able to loosen one more hole on the screw side and still be able to have the power strap centered

Return them while you can and get bindings from a better company. I had Flow bindings a year ago and they are terrible. They never fit boots correctly and are annoying to adjust. Get Union, Rome, or Burton bindings. They make some of the most durable and comfortable bindings out there. There's more companies, but I can't think off the top of my head right now.
