Lol, i wonder how much "luxury" costs? As if Flow bindings weren't luxurious enough already.

Love my Flow's just not sure I'm sold on a toe cap for this type of binding???

Those lock downs on the inside of the ratchets just don't look solid...are they just held there with pressure???

Those are cam clips and they pressure lock ladder teeth on the strap's underside. These set firmly and are used on multiple binding systems. I have never seen that part fail.

cool I've never seen them and just looked like a weak point. I trust your input, I'm newer to the sport so not much experience with hardware.
I can't wait to actually touch them when they hit the stores. Time to save for new gear for next year

NX2 rear ladders are of different size, teeth and mounting configuration too, compared to NXT.
no 'accessory' or 'upgrade' kits planned

solucien or Wired
any idea on how different these will feel or perform compared to the "power strap"
How about setting them up same question.

setting them us is same as for all Flow bindings; boot in binding with hiback up but not closed, adjust all buckles so straps fits nicely centered over your boot and not extremely tight, lock all buckles, close hiback with Snaplock lever for that extra little push and added tightness, and you're all set! individual adjustment per buckle is possible to add or release tightness based on personal preference

the HYBRID PowerCapStrap will feel a bit different than the traditional Fusion PowerStrap; a little more freedom especially laterally, but the capstrap tucks your boot right into the binding and keeps it centered each time you kick in, and the powerstrap crosses over a larger area of the boot so you still don't need to ride them very tight.

This will be great to check out on snow. There are a few new things going on. First off NASTY now pulls down and back as the highback is closed. With a foot in there, this can only help secure you into the heelcup. Also, the binding is now truly front adjustable/enterable to a level that is on par with any conventional binding. That will make it very easy to release front foot pressure on the lift, micro adjust while riding, etc. NASTY is awesome but the full sized ratchets are equally as big an improvement.

We have received a few questions about this in relation to NX2 for 2013 (not backwards compatability with older straps). In other words, will an alternate strap kit be available so that a GT (for instance) which is coming with the PowerCap Strap could be converted to use the Power strap (non toe cap version). If I am understanding correctly that was at least one of the questions that had been asked above.
