Default WTH!! 5 Days After Flow Trilogy Bindings... What do I do?

So After 5 days of using my 2012 Flow Trilogy Bindings, this is how they look. Is this a user error or defect or just normal?

Flow trilogy is rear-entry but i am not using it like it I strap in and out every time, could that be the reason, I doubt thou

Oh I got'em from Evo Outlet store, they were 119 bucks for a reason huh

Evo has a pretty good return policy and even outlet that should be covered under warranty. And yeah, it probably is from using the ladders. They are pretty much to be used when you can't use the reclining back. I don't think they thought anyone would use them every single run.

i couldn't get the damn things on properly so I gave up on that rear entry thing

hmm so what would that mean, they could come back telling me ooh you did the wrong thing, jee they were cheap but I didn't think this would happen

Call up EVO and talk to them. I had a warranty problem on some brand new bindings that my wife bought (the forward lean adjuster just sort of popped off). In my case we hadn't used them, but they gave me a full refund and free shipping.

Flows are definitely a binding where you need to expect to spend some time setting them up for rear-entry. If you don't have the patience for it, or you can't adjust to how they feel (and they are definitely different) then I'd move onto something else.

If you're strapping in normal with flows that means you are wanting them to be tight. That either means you can't get used to the no pressure feeling of Flows or your boots don't fit your feet correctly and flows will never work for you. Given those things you are probably using the mini ratchets to crank the strap down way harder then it was ever meant to be. That will cause stripping of the ladder strap with the quickness.

Call up Flow or Evo and get some replacement straps. Then either sell those or learn to use your gear correctly.

Burton's are all on sale right now so get yourself a refund and buy you some nice Missions for 160 bucks. Not that much more than what you paid and you won't be sorry on the performance or durability of them. I am still riding my Missions from a couple years ago, have maybe 3 dozen days on them at this point and I'm a pretty big guy who is hard on stuff. They are still fine and I just slapped them on my new never summer, planning on riding them at least through this season. My ladder straps barely even look worn...

Hey guys, I tried to use my Pathfinder as a boat and the engine flooded. I know it's meant for roads and whatnot but I didnt think it would just die that fast.

That's what you sound like to me. Use anything improperly and it'll fail.

Nivek, thats weird, I tried to drive my ski natigue to dinner the other night and I passed some guy trying to wakeboard behind a pathfinder. I should have waved!

Flows work fine for most. you simply have to use them correctly.

I have been thrilled with mine. ( disclaimer: I also had flytraps and K2 clickers back in the day so Flows are AWESOME in comparison.... LOL!)
