Piece of advice for making kicking in easy, make sure the highback is completely extended down. If its up a little bit, the strap wont be fully extended and makes it tougher to kick-in.
glad to hear another on NX2-AT. i'm on the brink on getting one. the advice for kicking in easier is good for me cuz i do the same thing with my FLOW 5 so it would not be an issue. thanks Flaus.

I made a video of the problem with the ratchets I'm having. It is about every 2-3 times I strap in I have to adjust the straps because the ratchets slipped. Considering my home hill is 310ft tall I strap in a lot. It's really annoying buying $300 Flows and having to check your straps every time you strap up. I was really stoked for these new ratchets since I had a really bad experience with being stuck in powder while at Keystone last year on my NXT's. Now I'm thinking of frankensteining my NXT straps on to my NX2 chassis.

John,
I just went and checked mine and they do not do that once the ratchets are locked.
I would call Flow or go to your local shop to have them checked.
I can post a video after work of mine if you want.

Thanks slyder. I will contact Flow. The weird thing is that all 4 of my ratchets do the same thing. Maybe I got a bad run.

Size 7.5 is an overlap size and technically fits both Medium and Large. The best binding for you will depend a lot on your specific boots. Care to post a picture of the fit?
