I'm pro-canting but not sold on more cushioning. Problem with to much cushioning, I lose response and feel from my bindings. Besides, how much shock absorption can be created? Flux, K2 and Burton are the bindings I'll be demoing this winter.

Dampening doesn't automatically mean more cushioning right? Like raiders with the airbags and phantoms with that bushing thing they have which looks awesome. K2 and Their harshmello. Hell even the 12 malavitas were comfy.

I wanted them but they were going for $230 at my shop! I honestly would have enjoyed them better considering I broke my highback on the Hurrithanes before the season ended, but $230 is alot for a pair of bindings.

The RKs are definately worth the price of admission.


Stoked to hear that canting options are coming, you guys should try them out as a late season upgrade for the Alpha baseplate. A couple different pad sets with different canting and padding options would be great accessories to customize the feel of the binders.

I will second what has already been said: I require dampening and canting for my old and destroyed knees and ankles. As such I feel my binding options narrow rapidly and do not currently include Flux even though I would like to.

My short list currently: used k2 Uprises last year, falling apart after a season, but very comfy and solid/responsive..

1. Burton Cartel
2. Raiden Machine
3. K2 Company

You guys make sexy bindings but I can't shop for them the way the 20 year old urban riders do.

I think maybe identify yourself as a rep (e.g. Hi, Flux Bindings PR rep here) , even have it in your profile, and share some real approved info instead of spreading "info lite" e.g. rumors, stay tuneds, etc. I appreciate that manufacturers are taking the initiative to research forums and engaging in non scripted interactions.
