Default Flad?

Hey can you guys tell me what a FLAD is? I called Burton about how my bindings, where the latch latches to broke off and they said it looks like all I need is a new FLAD??? They said I could give rider service a call and they would set me up... I would just like to know a little about the part before I call...
Thanks guys!
Oh here is the pic I sent them...

the flad is that red thing and to me it looks perfectly fine. what doesnt look good is the plastic part it attaches to and as far as i know that cant be fixed. to be honest you dont really need the flad to use the highback and you're prob better off without it.

FLAD ='s

Forward Lean Adjuster

If those bindings are under warranty I would send em in.... If they aren't, your mostly likely ok unless you like to lean your bindings forward.

How did you break that anyways?

probably had it latched and dropped it on its head cracking it.

Or a chairlift but theres no snow.


If its warranty you probably will need a new binding completely.

it looks like the only part thats broken is what holds the highback tight to the heel cup, he can still adjust the forward lean with out any trouble, just cant lock it so they dont fold down but who really needs that anyway?

Good, that is why I wanted to make sure what they were talking about, because they made it sound like they could just replace it and like you guys pointed out it is pretty much the whole binding!
Yep ifresh21, I believe it happened on the good old chairlift. I heard something pop and sometime later I looked at my bindings and saw it was broke, so pretty sure that was it. Ya you guys are right it really is not too much of a problem, but sometimes it gets annoying because I can fell the highback flap back and forth during carving etc… Sometimes it feels like it effects my ride as it is not as responsive but again it could just be all in my head I don’t have the piece to glue back on, but I guess I could just make something up (never thought of that). I guess I will check out my options, it looks like Burton does not have this type of system anymore; this is probable one of the reasons why??

Thanks for your guys help!

Ya you might as well take the FLAD off of both bindings and be done with it considering they're too old for a warranty job... And if you do like to lean your highbacks forward with that system, your gonna need some new bindings bud.

Another thing that actually might work though is if you can get one of those new dial flax highbacks and replace the old one. The new one doesn't need anything to hook to. It's pretty weird how it works but it does. Mine is like that.

Might just want to buy a new binding tho if u have the dollerz
