If I am understanding correctly that was at least one of the questions that had been asked above.
currently no such strap-kits planned, but if there is a considerable demand, Flow could consider adding it to the line as a NX2 accessory

FYI
there will be 2 heelcup and cable positions in the baseplate, 1 rear and 1 front, to adjust for boot-size/centering. along with the offset multi-disk, this will give plenty of adjustment options.
you won't see this adjustment in the Demo and tradeshow bindings yet, but it is implemented for the ones that will hit the shops!

I'm really interested in these bindings for next year...although I'm also trying to color co-ordinate my new setup. Would anyone happen to have pics of the different color combinations these come in, specifically the NX2s?

rode nxt-at's for 3 years hardcore. they broke one day and i was forced to put on my emergency old crappy missions and i couldnt believe how much better the response was on the strap ins. i was a loyal flow believer for a long time but i dont think im goin back.

plus its hard in the park cause you can get in them on a hill. when your walkin back up to a rail to hit it again, you are rarely if not never on a flat surface.

i think i saw 1 guy w/flows in the park besides me ever.

the rift focus boots are the best boot i ever wore though. ill definitely give you that.

I'd like to see a Fusion Strap with a toe-strap connected with a Y ladder. Would be an interesting combination as far as overkill goes. Currently loving my NXT ATs and ATSEs, but it looks like I'm gonna buy me a new NX2 with Fusion Strap this fall. Maybe I'll try out the Hylite as well.

Quick question: going through the NX2 Preview, I noticed that the tap on the highback that locks the "thingy" to the highback was gone. By what mechanic are that pieces locked in now? Are they going back to only having the tension of the wire keeping it in place?

Wired, I tried reading all info you provided and I couldn't quite find the answer I was looking for.

Which binding with the NASTY system would be a good park binding?

My friend has Flows and rides the park. He goes down on his knees facing uphill and puts his feet in and clamps em shut and is gone before I know it. Him having them has made me think about Flows and now with the NASTY system I am really looking at them.

Hi PA,

The NX2 SE is all mountain/freestyle and will certainly be used by many power riders as a park model. For riders that are looking for a classic soft flexing park binding they will likely go for the M9 (no nasty). It is not hard to kick into your Flows when you are on a slope, but if it is causing problems for you, all of the new models are full release, full sizes ratchets (that on their own are equal to the ratchets on any top quality model from other makers). These things have crazy options now.

what about women options?

hi,
i was going to buy the flow prima se this year, but after seeing this i've decided to wait it out for next season. My question is:
what options for women with the new NASTY will you guys have?
Will it have the new hybrid power cap strap as well? I prefer the hybrid over the traditional old strap myself.
will it have the new canted base?
And what level of stiffness will it be at?

The 2013 Prima will be Nasty. It has a Flow stiffness rating of 4.5 and will be using the traditional open toe design. There is a Female specific model (Minx SE) that will use the Hybrid Strap w/ toe cap but none use that strap yet that have Nasty Tech.
