What is the front strap issue? I just bought some five se 2013 bindings, and I'm wondering if this affects me?

When you have the buckle in the lock position is should not move. People are accidentally kicking the front toe strap while skating. When they kick it, the buckle tightens. You don't notice it until you go to strap in the next run.

Mine will do this but I skate 99.9 percent with my foot behind the board. I have yet to accidentally tighten the buckle.

I got Flow Talon 2013/14 boots size 10.5 and NX2-AT size L

The back of the binding is very narrow (where the NASTY joints are) When coming in I cant go straightly from back, have to step in from top.

It actually damages the Flow Talon shoes - there are rubbed spots from the outside of the shoes 0.5 cm in diameter where the shoes touches the joints. the black textile is rubbed you can see white inner part.

Do I have set the bindings bad, as it does not seems to or its just a bad boots/binding combo.

To be honest so far the damage is just visual and it seems to not get any worse. But its strange to see this issue from top products from same company

Not sure why your boot does it cuz I though that flow boots should have no issues with the bindings I do have that issue with mine and I have a 32 Focus boa boots sz.10 I'm used to slipping in from the top but once in a while I'd step in from the back and it gets stuck, it is annoying but I just laugh when it happens. not really have any damage on my boot but scuff marks and its no big deal. I won't trade my bindings for anything

I was using a set of fuse se today for the first time and I was having an issues with the toe cap moving down every time i kicked in. I had to loosen it up move it over my toe and then tighten it down like a normal binding... Is this normal?

Have you flipped and switched straps yet? If not, give that a try. Left to right and right to left.

I did not see this issue, but I did have the buckle on the toe strap come open a lot today. This is the non ratchet lock. Called flow and they are sending me a replacement buckle. Let's hope that solves it. Other than that issue, these are definitely the best rear entry binding I have tried. Have the k2 cinch ctx and just sent back the gnu weird

I also have the boot damage on my K2 Thraxis for the same reason. Lower ankle on both sides of each foot, started after my first day out in them.
