Sounds like a complete need for a redesign (heel cup, straps) from Flow on this binding. Sad to see a product come half baked to market......with so many unanswered questions.

It's more just tweaks. They are just reducing the width of the heelcup. Only the toe strap needs work. The highback lock I'm not sure of. Should be one of those things you need to get used to.

Their new entry system works like a charm. The straps stay locked and are responsive once you are in. The ratchets work buttery smooth and the ratchet lock does not at all impede your quick exit via ratchets when needed. The release tab on the ratchet is also the lock tab. You just give them a small slap down and it locks. When exiting via ratchets, you do the same thing as any other traditional ratchet. They release very smoothly.

By the way, these bindings were super light.

I expected this. Hopefully the tweaks will be enough, I'm glad I still have my 2012 FSE to hold me over. Haha.

Next year you will have 4 options. Conventional Flow entry and strap with the addition of full sized ratchets, Conventional Flow entry and new Hybrid strap with full sized ratchets, New Nasty entry and Coventional strap with the addition of full sized ratchets, New Nasty entry and Hybrid strap with the addition of full sized ratchets. When these are released in the Fall, stop by a shop and kick into each and see which one works best for your foot and your boots.

NX2's will get fully 'fixed' for production. Here's a few info-bits to address some of the concerns;

- Better fit of the toecap, but no huge design-change like adding a 'hard' bridge on the top over the toes. Improved material on the webbing.
- Better position of the toecap (slightly higher/steeper angle), so hand-adjustment while getting in is less likely needed.
- Making the LSR-buckles even more buttery-smooth to slap open, especially when you have em cranked down supertight (which is not really needed, but hey to everyone their own, and lets make that work).
- Better locked position of the medial adjustment-latch on the toecap, so they don't pop up while riding.
- Adding a 2nd adjustment position for the hiback&cable to the baseplate, so there is more boot-centering options for a better fit (along with the offset multi-disk).
- Way easier opening of the Snaplock, so Leo -and anyone else- can get in&out like he was used to. (on the Demo samples the hiback-locks where indeed a bit too difficult to open, so yes this needed a few tweaks)
- Contrary to some information here, the heelcup will not get reduced in width, but there will be some small tweaks on the inside baseplate-washer/spacers, and the hiback SupportPanels, for better fit and ease of entry&exit.

Nothing crazy, just the expected little tweaks that sometimes stay hidden while testing with just a small group of testers but that do come up after a large customer-base testing like during these demo's.
So don't worry about the product, just lets all hope for more snow next season!!
