You really see the whole range for what riders prefer in pow. Some look for ultra surfy, low support models (some even backless like the Freeballers) while others want to crank themselves into bomber stiff bindings for the deeps. Personal preference rules the day.

Has anyone ridden both the NX2 RS and NX2 AT.

I like stiffer and more responsive bindings but I could get the AT for a lot cheaper off my local craigslist.

Is there a big difference in response between the RS and AT? Or is it more a marketing game?

I think the highback is a bit beefier and wider on the RS. That was my conclusion when I was comparing these two a while back. Can't imagine it's that much more responsive though.

Once it's set, you only need to adjust the other side and know one side never moves, not even accidentally so its a trade off I like.

Just ordered a pair of NX2-RS, should have them next week.

My complaints. The bindings wore a hole right through my brand new, nearly $400 Salomon Malamutes boots in just a few days. The nylon portion of the highback that adjusts up, down, and rotates has a lip at the bottom below where the padding starts and if your boots aren't rubber that high up, they will cut right into it. This lip also gives the highback the ability to catch the rubber part of the sole and tear it away from the boot.

I ended up grinding the lip away with a dremel.


Got the same bindings (in XL), and actually have the same boots (in 12.5). Btw, I'm 6'3" and 220 pounds.

I have some scuffing but no hole where your hole is, but do have the same rubber separation issue.

I was having a lot of trouble figuring out the right fit. My toes hung over by abt 2inches although I don't think i experienced toe drag (was too scared to look at toes while in a turn that fast, and didn't feel any tug) Took a LOT of jimmy-ing and readjusting and finally took them to a shop to move the heel cups to the farthest back position AND the wire to the farthest back position AND adjusted from 12-12 to 15-15. They also turned the disc 90* and used the adjustment to move the base as far back as possible. Now I'm just playing with the straps. I like them to feel tight but that doesn't allow for easy access at the top of the trail or for the always dangerous on-lift-strap in. If I loosen the ratchet a couple of notches at te bottom it makes it easier but then I feel with all the adjustments at the bottom and all the adjustments at the top am I just defeating the purpose of the "easy flow"? Will probably be making adjustments all for this season anyway. And probably the next too, for the amount of $ I paid. Wife would kill me if I dropped another couple hundred (at least) on another pair!!!

Quick question (and thank you for following my rambling post), when you ride off the lift, do you keep your back foot in the open binding or next to the binding as traditional? I've done both and can't control the board with my foot against the back binding, and worry I may damage the high back if my foot is in the open back binding.

The WiredSport guys said that there is little difference in stiffness from the RS to the AT and I got a good deal on a pair from djsaad that I couldn't pass up.

I normally have my backfoot beside my binding. I also put my boot in when i feel like it and i would pull up the highback once i'm off the chair. There were times that i could not pull it up so i'd have my highback down as i ride away. Never see any damage on them though.

Yeah I sold those too quick, but at least it gives me the opportunity to try out the RS. I am too much of a gear whore.

haha, I had the same issue with mine :P It seems like I never have the right tools, it took so much pressure to not strip the screws. They should really make those hardware out of a stronger metal. Why cant snowboard hardware be made of tungsten??? lol

Hi,

Have you been taken care of on this? Flow warranty is awesome and they will get you squared away. Which part of the modback broke? Let me know if you need help with your warranty.
