Flow NX2 AT 2013 adjustment question
 
After one session on these, which felt somewhat unresponsive, I am wondering what to do next. I felt like my boot was being pushed forward on the footbed and that there was gap between back of binding and boot, and additionally that the high back had too much play as a result of the cable.
The remedy I tried for this, on mountain, was ratchet tightening and there was ensuing foot coma. Also, the tighter my achilles lodged against the metal heel loop as I tightened down, the more discomfort occurred during turns. So I loosened it a bit and with foot inching forward again, I felt like toeside turns were ok not great, but heelside was sluggish. Had been hoping for much quicker heel to toe action.

I have since adjusted the highback full forward lean to compensate for the cable play, and will go with a snug ankle adjustment and looser toe adjustment (this has a unistrap). Hoping to have a better session. 11.5 lower profile boot in XL binding.

Not ready to give up yet. Any thoughts? Thank you.

I believe you can adjust the location of the strap under the base plate to set the strap tension.

Not sure if you have seen this, but it is from Flow's website. I wish I had seen it earlier to help on the adjustments.

The Flow Binding Size Chart shows that with an 11.5 size boot, you should be in an XL Binding. However, this is a guideline and your low profile boot may well fit better in a Large size binding. I am in a older Burton Tribune boot, size 11 and in a Large Binding and the fit is fab. I know that last thing you want to hear is "wrong size" but I would seriously consider it as your biggest reason for your fit issue. :dunno:

Watch the video above and check weather your highback & cable are in the forward or backward position. Given your boot size, I would think you should be in the forward position.

Thanks guys.

I'll reassess my adjustments.

Beautiful bindings. Hoping they work out.

I'll also consider trading for larges. I can get that done.

Real Yowie 02-15-2013 04:27 PM

Oldman, can you describe the responsiveness you are feeling in larges? do you have to clamp down to the point of discomfort?
thanks

Hey Real:

I am riding these on a Lib Tech Phoenix Lando and find them to be excellent. No play whatsoever. In fact, I find that with the NASTY, you get any snow under your foot and they feel too tight.

I've got the large bindings but I'm wearing a 10.5 Burton Moto. I love the responsiveness of the bindings. I'm with Oldman, if snow gets under the boots, it is too tight.

I broke the high back and used a rental flow m-9 binding (back foot) and it was way less responsive than the nx2-at. I'm glad I went with the nx2-at.

Only complaint I have is they are tearing up the top of my boot on my back foot from sliding in. I guess that's the payback for a 5 seconds strap in.

Thanks,

Jason
