Help selecting 2013 Flow Nx2 binding

I am an all mountain cruiser and carver. I have gotten started with a used setup and would like to do a binding upgrade, the 2013 Flow Nx2's are my first choice. For sure I want a rear entry and the Flow N.A.S.T.Y. looks good. I'm not sure if I should the toe cap version or not. Which of the Nx2's will work for me.

First off, welcome. You will find an endless source of information and entertainment here on the forum.

I am riding the NX2-AT's and find them to be very solid. My riding style is very much as you have described. I do not hit the park, simply cruise, carve and always on the hunt for powder stashes. Often hard to find here on the Ice Coast.

I went with the AT version based on my great experience riding older NXT-AT & NXT-ATSE versions that have the same style of strap .

I'm curious, why rear entry? At that price, you can get some of the best bindings in the market: Force/Cartel/390's.

Get the AT. The single strap is more comfortable. Only reason I got the SE's is for the softer highback since I do a lot of park riding.

Honestly I think either choice of strap you would be happy with. I have had 2 power I-straps and I can feel a difference riding the new toe strap version.

I ride everything except powder, since we got none. I have not been limited in my progress of learning with either strap.

As mentioned, countless info, banter, this is better than that kinda information in previous threads no need to re-hash all that garbage. Each rider makes this on personal choice. Just stick with Flow's upper end binding the lower ends as with many companies may have issues.

I have flow five, NX2 SE and AT. I only ride my SE bindings now. They are great bindings. I have 45-50 days on them since December and they have been great.

I'm 60 years old and have some hip mobility issues. With practice my ability to strap in has improved, but the K2 Cinch or Flow N.A.S.T.Y. are a great advantage to me.

Can you tell me the advantages of each type of toe strap? Either will work is already a fine answer, but I'm still curious.

Good information, I was thinking a stiff back would match my riding preferences.

Hey Coot:

At 60, congrats on still going down the hill sideways!!!!! Great to hear you are still keen on getting new gear. I suspect that if you acquire a new set of NX2's you will be good to go for at least another decade!!!!!!!!!

Guys like you are an inspiration to all of us. Cheers
