This is what I'm really interesting in seeing play out. If the new Flows turn out to be a performer, what will that mean for GNU and K2?

How will you sell those over the Flows? The only thing I can think of is price. The NX2 bindings will most definitely be pricier. Flow bindings command a premium.

Wasn't someone going on about Flows not offering canting because of their rockered baseplate it wasn't needed/couldn't be done. Coulda sworn I read something like that in the last week or so.

Looks cool, but they haven't simplified the design...it has 3 straps instead of 2 now.
Exactly? Far from it. You have more moving parts. Flow has the same number of moving parts as before, they just attached the strap to the highback in an engineered spot instead of the frame. Your whole frame lifts when you drop your highback. As far as the "three" straps. Not really. It's two with a connector and if you really look at it its going to be better and a more exact fit to different boots than before.

well yes, the base of the binding lifts to align better with the boot as it enters. Looks to me the K2 open wider than the Flow. But let's wait for the 2013 model. I am not crazy about how the cable is left guide-less in the Flow. How the highback work when you change the angle?

I said that. That information was also something I got from WiredSports last year when I was talking about the lack of canting.

They might have done away with the rocker baseplate. They didn't mention that.

Edit: Oh, he did mention rocker baseplate.

now as i watch the video several times,he mentioned about deep snow issue and he just unstrap one buckle(top)right? and that was it? that is much better than last years model.also i guess they only comes with 2.5 cant because its pretty common one that everyone uses.with this new tech they come up with i think i'll buy the fusion style 2013 binding. i like the even pressure on my boots.
