Yup. Salomon has reduced overall footprint but even size 11 still works better in the XL Flow bindings, especially for centering.

Three binding sizes are available. Medium, Large and XL. If you meant can the heelcup be compressed in/out on the baseplate, I did not see milling for that.
Read all the pages on this long thread... appears that NX2 is what I'm looking for my Nitro boot Size 8. I generally ride a stiffer binding like the Burton C60 or CO2... I've been riding 2009 Rome 390 and 2011 Rome 390 BOSS... but those are a bit soft for me (even for park). From what I've read it sounds like the NX2-AT would work for my boots (someone posted that they fit his Nitros better) at the SE is the toecap strap and the AT are the traditional flow strap. I'm not set on getting the toecap, so it sounds like traditional flow strap is the way to go.

All the model names are kind of confusing... but I'm assuming that the NX2 is one of the more expensive models (oh well) in the Flow lineup and the AT, RS, GS, SE describes the strap type and highback add-in . What do you tink NX2-AT Medium for size 8 Nitro Teams?

Flow NXT-FSE = 2 lbs 4.8 oz

Flow Quattro SE = 2 lbs 2.37 oz

Flight 2 Men's = 2 lbs 3.1 oz

Rome 390 = 2 lbs 2.32 oz

Union Force = 2 lbs 2.44 oz
For my new park board (Salomon Drift Rocker) I went for a simple and light binding: Salomon Rhythm. It felt lightest of all in the store, but I can't find any weight info on the net to compare against above. Any input?
Since my home park is not that big it will be a lot of strap on/off - Flow advantage. But I want to keep it as light as possible - Flow disadvantage?

Yes to this. Size Medium is the best choice for your boots. You are correct that NX2 (as a whole) is Flow's top of the line. The AT stands for All Terrain. Of the NX2's the AT's are the least expensive.

The lightest bindings we have in the shop are the Flux DMCC Lights (which claims to be the lightest on the market). If weight is the ultimate issue for you, there are models such as the DMCC Light (and possibly the Rhythym - We do not have that spec) that could save you some weight.

My interest was to compare my Rhythm with the lightest Flow-binding. Weight vs easy-strap-on.

The Flux DMCC lights is not an option for me....at the moment

I see. Flow's lightest models are about 2 lbs 3 oz. I am unsure of the weight of the Rhythm. If they were among the lightest of the light you would still be talking a matter of a few oz.

PS:

The DMCC Light is 1 lb 15 oz in Large with disk and hardware. To my knowledge that it the lightest binding on the market.
