you most definitely can adjust the highbacks on flows to match the board edge... i had last years orange m9 se's and this current m9 se and both were adjustable. Do it the same way you would on any binding, loosen up the highback screws and turn the highback to the position you want, then tighten.

On the NX2 bindings you can only adjust the upper part of the highback. Moving the main heelcup off center is specifically against the instructions.

That's what I though. I stared at the damn thing for 30 minutes to figure out how to shift it parallel.

Are you kicking , skating , walking on you toe side? Or maybe you kick the buckle on the chair lift

i checked out the nx2 after i read your comments and i totally see what you guys mean now... the nx2 highback/heelcup is a whole different animal
compared to the m9 se's.

Hey, I spent the weekend trying to adjust my NX2-AT size medium to my Nitro Team Size 8 boots. I am new to actually using FLOW bindings so bear with me if I missed something obvious.

So I had what I assume is the standard problem of adjusting the power cuff such that it was easy to step into the binding... but still was some what attached to my boot when riding. It seemed if I were to adjust the binding and rachets on each side of the toe and ankle strap so there were just snug... then kicking my foot in enough so my boot heel was clear of the lowered highback was very difficult. I ended up just loosening the powercuff a bunch of clicks on the rachet side so I could step in easier, flip up the highback and then racheting down the cuff until it just barely touched my boot. This kind of worked although it wasn't ideal. Also the highback was still being crushed into the back of my boot (I could feel my achilles tendon being pinched through my boot and my whole foot was being push forward... such that my toes felt crushed into the front of my boot by the end of the day).

My only thoughts were maybe I need to either exchange for a size Large (Medium was sizes 6-8 and Large was size 8-10) or... I need to leave the power cuff loose on entry and assume that my boot will eventually slide forward into it after riding a few minutes???).

Any help would be appreciated... let me know if you want photos/video

Lonerider - I had a similar situation and I am pretty sure the large will work better for you.

I initially picked up large nx2-ats and got some new boots at the same time. Whiskey TRice DC double Boas size 8.5. I tried those but never really gave them a chance and thought I cold get away with Mediums. So I went ahead and ordered the same nx2-ats in medium. The mediums were very responsive but too tight and gave me pressure points both on the toe and achilles.

So I went back to Large and also got my K2 T1 DBs size 8.5 repaired and they are a much better fit. Boa anchor was rivited back in.

I think the DC Rice Status boots have a smaller footprint and could be close but hoping they work in the Large if I give it another chance but haven't yet tried.

Only other suggestion is the obvious of making sure you have the binding and foot bed on the correct foot. With the canting and directional highback, its an awkward feel if they are on backwards as I accidentally did this during a rush intall once.

i have thought for a couple years that the flows are really gay and why not just use a traditional binding. I have gotten very intrigued with them now. I enjoy 70% park and 30% free ride. Which flow binding would fit my needs the best?

Lonerider here is how I set mine up everytime and all the Flows I've owned and has worked for me everytime
  • Loosen power strap ratchets and fold down high back
  • step into binding and close highback
  • tighten powerstrap closest to ankle then the toe section
  • lock the ratchets I think you still have the locks on the 13's, Pull up on the ratchet and then lock them this will keep the ratchets from tightening on you.

I would stick with larges as this will still give you some room if you have a boot with a larger footprint or bulky type boot, IMO
