I have k2 cinch ctx, there is really alot i like about the adjustability of the bindings but they are heavy and my arms get so sore from locking and unlocking the bindings all day.
it is a real chore.

searching for something easier I tried the 2013 gnu weird bindings, and after a week using them I am sending them back.
They are easier to snap in but

I have 2 issues with them

1. boot toe never seems to get in toe cap securely, no matter how i adjust. since toecap is at a fixed height, i can only move forward or back

2. trying to get them on or off on an slope, is a chore, since the latch goes 90 to the ground and prevents them from fully opening


I called flow asking for info on two models
the fuse-se and the nx2-se i was interested in each because of the canted footbeds.
(a must for me as I have bad knees)
and the hybrid toe cap, which seems to solve the issue i had with the Gnu's



I explained my issues with their competitions bindings one by one, to see if they were different. I also asked if there was any 2013 models since my budget is limited, they could not find any in stock
Since they could not they hooked me up for xmas with a deal of all deals on an nx2-se.
I am so stoked
I am hopefull that i will finally find an easy in easy out binding.

Even if they don't work out I will never bad mouth flow as they are a real stand up company who stands behind their product and willing to go the extra mile to help some one out

Waaaait a moment.

I too am looking to get out of my k2's and into flows. You mean to say all I have to do is ring them and I'll get a much better deal than online retailers??

When I called it was not my intent to find a deal. I was just trying.to.justify spending a lot more.money. mind you I am very chatty so I guess the csr. Was feeling the xmas spirit abd hooked me up. I was trying to find a 2013 model because of price. And it looks like I won the lottery of csr's. Worth a shot though

Does Flow make anything with an adjustable heel cup/length? I have a boot size that often forces me to run my binding plates across the board toe to heel, so I am always looking for bindings with increased adjustability in this direction.

Flows binding plate has about 40 holes in it. You can adjust both heel to toe and nose to tail at the same time on it, well at least the older ones.

Thanks, I'm going to try a pair. I'm currently riding the Burton Genesis, can anyone recommend something similar in the Flow line? I'm not ready to read Flow reviews for three days

If anyone has a higher end binding from another manufacturer that they haven't abused much, and they want to try Flows, I'd consider trades for my 2013 NX2-GTs (Medium). PM me what you have if interested. I probably put 15 days on them. I do have the updated ladders from Flow as well, to fix the issue discussed earlier in the thread with the front straps tightening when your foot is out.

Ahh, ok. I was kinda hoping that was the status quo of phone calling. (not the rock band)
