when will these babies be coming on the market? I am looking for a new set-up, but might just have to wait till these come on the european market.
I spoke to my local dealer here in Belgium and they stopped importing flows and went with GNU this year, he was telling me all about it last week, but I reckon after seeing these ones that they'll be back on his shelf in a jiffy. His dad had been working with flow for 18yrs (if I recall correctly what he said)

what price range are we looking at here?

What's the difference between the GT and AT models? Also, how do the new full-sized ratchets feel? Are they as smooth as other binding brands?

The ratches are on par with other premium bindings from top manufacturers and they get a locking feature.

The GT uses the Hybrid Strap with toe cap and gets and Asymetrical Urethane top panel to the mod back.

The AT uses the more traditional Flow strap (without toe cap) with a Glass filled Nylon top panel to the mod back.

Traditional (with the addition of the new full sized LSR ratchets).

Park?

I own a pair of 2010 nxt atse, which i liked except for riding back country in deep pow since it was a pain to get back into after a break. I bought a pair of GNUs this year for my pow board specifically for this reason. Looks like you guys have addressed all the issues i have had previously with FLOWs. The build quality on the atse is superior to the GNU binding in my opinion and now with the hybrid strap, it looks like my pow board might be gettin some FLOW love again...
Another question, will there be a freestyle specific version? And will each model offer more neutral looking color schemes as an option? The wild color schemes are kinda cool but i generally prefer simple black and often when speaking to others the wild colors on the current Special Editions models generally dont match their boards. I know this isnt the best reason to not buy a superior product but realistically a lot of people choose gear based on asthetics.

There are 37 total bindings for 2013 including models and color variations. In the NASTY tech, guys like Lago are on the SE, but that will be for more of a power freestyle guy. Check here for the M9 SE and The Five (which I feel deserves a new name as it is so highly upgraded this year). Both will stoke that guy looking for a more neutral/softer flex than the NS2's.

All of the NS2 models get the 2.5 degree BankBeds. None of the other models are canted. It is the extra room created for entry by the lifting of the NASTY system that allows for a canted base to be used.
