Feeling adventurous and had some money to blow... just ordered some NX2-SE's from wired.

Well see how this toe cap everyone is worried about does.

Jon Doe,
I was at my buddies shop so I thought I would take some pics of the SE's side-by-side with the AT's

It looks like that holes are all the same and that you could easily switch the 2 straps.





Maybe wired can verify and obviously you'd have to dish out more money for the AT's strap, but I think it would hit your wish list !!!!

Hi guys,

Flow is not planning to offer alternate straps in the near future. Checked on that one earlier

From what I have seen of these it looks like the straps are interchangable. Meaning why couldn't a person buy the SE's and then order a power strap for the AT's from Flow and put the stap on the SE's....
Yes it would be extra money but if that is what it takes to make a rider happy and that rider doesn't mind buying the extra strap, why not try this.

Maybe I'll ask my buddy if I can borrow a set of AT's and swap the power strap to my SE's and see how it works out.

All the holes are the same and the ladders are the same. I had them hand in hand as you can see in the pics

Hi,

That is actually what I was trying to get across. Sorry if I was unclear. I do not believe the straps will be available to order.

Ahh I see you point now, but....

If I break a part and it is out of warranty why would Flow not sell me that part. Meaning if I broke a part and they don't sell replacement parts I'd have to buy new bindings and be one angry customer. This doesn't make sense to me...

I needed a ladder for my NXT AT SE's and I told Flow I broke them and I would pay for the part. They had the part to sell but were so AWESOME that they covered them under warranty. They did have them to sell though, this was my experience last year.

I was actually told by my local Flow rep that replacement straps cost about $80 as I had the exact same thought...maybe he was mistaken because they offered it in the past but not anymore?

Agree with Slyder that given Flow's solid warranty program, they would have to carry a stock of straps.

Thanks Slyder. I already figured the straps are interchangeable. If I was to buy any part it would be the upper part of the highback. The lower part should be the same and that should be cheaper then the strap. I'll probably take my chances and get the SE's. If I don't like the strap then I'll sell them. I'm not hurting for money.
