Has there been any noise yet about any changes being made for 2014? Flow must have learned enough from the 2013 models to be able to make some adjustments for next season...

I remembered seeing this about a month ago. Hope this helps.

- The Hybrid toe-ladders will increase in length to accommodate more boot-sizes, and the V-toe (Y-shaped) medial ladder will get a slightly steeper angle for a better toecap strap fit. As can be seen in the how-to video's, you can also swap the toecaps and ride them more over-the-toe instead of the in-front-of-toe positioning.
- Stronger SupportPanels, and less sharp bottom edge.
- Stronger baseplate-insert for footbed adjustment-screw.
- Footbeds are now dual-density EVA BankBeds for more cushioning.
- EVA-pad underneath the mounting-disk.
- Extra ankle-ladderstrap position on the NASTY heelcup for increased individual adjustments.

For 2013, the NX2's will be lighter, better and nasty-er!!!

I just got a replacement buckle for my 13's put them on the ladder strap and seems to hold better.
I'm a bit un-happy as I have the SE's and they are color matched I got sent the basic black. Not sure if this is an up graded ratchet or just a new one from 13 model.

Happy it locks into place better but wont get to try them out for another 7 months

John Doe: /\ just got my replacment parts the other day. Wish they sent 2 rather than one I may contact them to get the other one as well

That's a Flowbissue of the past. I never experienced even excessive wear on my 2011 Quattros, 2012 M9se's, or my 2014 Fuse SE's. Dont hesitate to look into next years NX2 RS' s. They'll be way lighter than your FRX and honestly probably more responsive.

I want to get the nx2 rs, but im afraid that they will be too stiff and uncomfortable, should i get the nx2 at's instead? I am a free rider and will be putting these on a venture odin. Plz help.

If you're worried about the stiffness just dropping to the AT won't really do that much. You're better off shooting for the Fuse RS or GT's.

The differences between the two are I fusion vs A Fusion strap (more material and stiffer on the A fusion) and a Nylon vs and oversized asymmetrical Composite Fiber Support panel (again stiffer with more material). The support panel only makes up the top third of the highback.

Riders who love a stiff binding will love the RS. The strap and highback shaping is really refined so while they are stiff, they are also very comfortable for riders who love stiff.
