I rode with flows ng2gts last year, size 13 boot, and they were amazing. The rear entry was so easy, I'm a big guy, 6'7 so sitting down to strap is a pain, this has solved my issue. The toe strap needs a little "fit bump" if that makes sense,it tends to slide down when the binding is empty, but it's a simple slide your boot in, lift the toe cap a bit for perfect fit, buckle down and go.
It's not a perfect binding, but a really really good one none the less! And it solved a major issue for me, not having to sit down to strap. Plus the added stiffness is a bonus, my board is a 172 skunk ape, and no difficulty bending it whatsoever...
Will buy flow again.
50 days + on them, and no issues.
Thanks for your reply. I thought my board was big at 162 cm!!
As you're a giant... how is the ease of 'clicking in'? The vids show that one pulls the highback up which makes the 'tab' at the back pop out, then you just grab it and click it into place.
Is that really how easy it is? My K2 cinch has an extra plastic loop (like a big cable tie) at the back which you obv grab and yank up.
Quality of build is excellent in my opinion except for the locking ratchets, which will still move when locked.
Toecap is still kind of hokie if you ask me, I wish I would of gone with the hybrid strap. All boots are different and they may fit some better than others.
Heel lift is a bit of a problem and can be mostly eliminated with increased forward lean adjustment but doing that will also increase the amount of force it takes to lock the highback.
As others have said its not perfect but as far as whats out there its probably the best.
Thanks for the feedback too.
The lack of toe strap seems weird to me. But it seems the hybrid makes up for it by having a large foot clamp down system? My K2's get some heel lift as well so I have to tweak it a bit on the slopes to get it right.
CAN I JUST SAY....That the order of AIrider then your avatars is hilarious and accurate in this case. You two should always post one after the other.
For rear entry Flow is the best. No question.
The quality is on par with every other great brand out there. The GT's give you that super high performance feel with a blend of 2 strap and Flow strap feel. The Cap has a bit of a tweaked angle for 2014 compared to 2013 so they do fit a bit better and as always, you've got a 90% chance of a better fit if you swap your left and right to caps.
Thanks! I've never heard that about the left and right swapping! (unless you were joking then I look like an idiot....and I don't need anyone's help too look like one!)
It's good to hear all this info. Now I just need Mr Wiredsport to knock off 60% and we'll be sweet.
Thanks guys! Take the rest of the week off.
