Help please! Flux DMCC

Hello all,

I'm looking to get a new pair of bindings this week. I was looking at the Flux DMCC (not the lights) and im almost set for it but I wanted to get second, third, and maybe fourth opinions! haha well anyway, I'm an all mountain rider, I'd say I only spend about 25-30% of my time in the park but I try and hit all natural features I can get to on every run. I mostly go hard on groomers, tree runs, moguls here and there, and pow runs when weather permits it. I want my binding to at least be solid in the park though and based on reviews the DMCC is a pretty good all mountain binding. I've ridden my cousins beat down k2 deck with low end ride bindings and rental boots for the past five years and the few years before that all rentals. So of course anything is an upgrade but I really wanna get good, well performing equipment that will last me a little while (so durability is a concern as well).

I am wondering about compatibility as well so if it helps I recently got an lib attack banana 161 W
I have a nike zoom force 1 in a size 12 and 13 (returning one of them, probably sticking with the 12)

All suggestions are for sure considered but from what I know, I am a fan of flux bindings. I like their heel straps, LOVE the ratchets, and everybody's gotta be raving about em for a reason right? lol

Thank you for all replies ahead of time! Need all the help I can get!

I have two pairs of DMCC 11/12 and 12/13; they are stiff and light. Buy them they are fantastic and if you have some problems with the caps ladyflinstone (name in this forum) is a flux manager super good

I think there have actually been alot of people complaining about them. I know they have had issues this year with toe straps breaking, but I personally dont ride them. That being said im sure this wont be a problem next year as they will no doubt remedy it quickly. Do some research and look at other brands that are comparable in performance to the DMCC and pick whats best for you. The flux arent canted if that is an issue for you as well...


User reviews are your friend...look for common problems and common positive things. Some other stiff freeride style bindings like the Rome Targa, Union Charger, Burton Diode and Ride El Hefe might be of interest.

Thank you for the replies! I was looking at the 12/13. Have you had problems with the caps? Honestly ive been looking for user reviews everywhere but everything is on the DMCC lights and not much on the DMCC. From what ive heard they are a quality binding that is more stiff but has enough flex to perform for park.. of course I do not have experience riding flux which I would like to change. Are flux caps known to have problems? I had not seen this anywhere previously.

I broke the CAP and i received yesterday from US (I'm in Italy) for free the new and reinforced caps. Is a common problem of caps 12/13. But the flux USA is super efficient!!!!

Two of my riding partners have the FS45's. One guy has had both toe caps replaced as the top cross piece broke; one after 1 week, one after a month or so. Second guy had one break and replaced. The break spot was the same in all 3 caps ratchet side top cross piece. The local shop that did the replacing had a whole bunch of toe caps on order b/c according to them this was a common problem with this years flux toe caps. Down side is they are now riding mismatched toe caps.

Again, im sure this wont be a problem after the new models come out.

Just take a look at Flux's facebook page....in march they have 5 different people thanking them for the quick turn around on straps....

It would seem that if you buy this years bindings, you may be waiting for parts at some point.

I dont mean to hate on flux...but they should have shipped new caps out to their dealers to put on existing stock when this became a problem.

sorry to have to dumb this down, but do you mean that this years were improved? or that this years have problems but stores do not have replacement parts laying around? and lastly by this year do you mean 12-13?
