larrytbull the adjustment depends on what you need to do.

first you have to center boot in the binding

1. without the straps in, and prior to mounting, make sure your boot is centered when the binding is closed
if there is too much toe overhang, then move the heel cup back one notch, (both sides) and also both cables.; there is a video on this

2. put boot in and install the straps loosely and unlucked at both ends
push the toecaps in so that the cap is centered, with out moving the boot off center, then lock
push the ankle straps in so that the ankle strap seems as centered with no gaps,then lock

install the binding on the board centering the binding on the board (take into account the foot pad)

lightly tighten the mounting scres and install foot pad without screwing it in
adjust pad so things are centered. if they are not then slightly adjust the binding position to center
take off footbed
tighten mounting screws
install footbeds adjust and screw in

now put boots on foot
and try out bindings, tweak for lean, easy in, easy out
try not to have any rubbing on heel as binding is closing


other things to note. ensure that binding is moving smoothly. if you notice when opening or closing the ankle strap does not move straight up or down, check the screws and movement points for smooth movement. In my bindings I had to loosen then tighten to make bushings work

this should get you close. then tweak on mountain

things i have found on riding , is that when snow packs in, you may have to adjust straps open a notch or 2 to compensate


hope this is a helpful guide. this is compiled from my trial and error, along with some help from guys at flow support

Thanks for your response - does it matter how far up the webbing is on your boot?

Otherwise and watching the flow videos yesterday, from what I understand, I could adjust the boot position in one of three ways:

The safety screw on the baseplate, the actual four baseplate screws, or adjust the highback position. Either these or simply loosen my toe-straps to prevent it from pushing my boot back to my heel.

The way I feel about wiggling into it as you suggested is that if there's wiggling room to push in, then there's the same room to slip back toward the heel.

I guess I'll have to experiment with the various ways regardless but I'm hoping there's a systematic way to approach this that you guys know of.

So what I thought was sensible (could be wrong as this is my first real purchase) was to put the boot in the binding, strap up both straps with the highback up (but not fastened), then when both straps are tight (maybe too tight as I have a habbit of doing that) fasten the highback.

Afterwards I'd want to practise the quick-release by unlatching the highback, removing boot, re-inserting boot, fastening highback. At this point since the strap tightness had already been previously set (possibly too tight as you suggested), once highback is fastened my heel would be protruding noticeably unevenly.

Will try loosening the toe a bit more when I get back. I also noticed the webbing was not sitting directly over my boot lace area so I adjusted those straps by pushing the webbing over to the right a little bit.

They are salomon f20's UK size 9 (US size 10) so they should fit with L-sized nx2s

I'll check the flow website for videos on adjusting as well as I don't think I can fix the bindings a little more forward from the baseplate attachcment.

Quick question: When quick-removing boots and re-inserting, I find that my boot automatically adjusts to a particular position on the board, which is a little bit more toward the heel side (as one would expect).

As this means the tip of the boot and tip of the heel are no longer equidistant which is the ideal, do you guys pre-empt this adjustment by fixing your bindings toward the toe-side a bit more and re-inserting both feet using the quick-release at least once at the beginning of the day? Or am I being too anal?

I wouldn't say the boot is excessively protruding at the heel-side edge such that I think it would catch the snow, but it's noticable so I was wondering what you guys did.

scott_murray I reread my reply and it was a bit douchey, sorry. Wait more than 2 hrs for a reply.
I have flite 2s, strap doesn't raise up with the high back down. My foot also shifts forward when I raise the back. I've adjusted the bindings to keep my foot centered when bound

larrytbull so on my nx2's, I have been working with the guys in customer support to help me dial them in. One thing i found was that one of the screws was too tight where the ladder strip (sorry for bad terminology) connects to the heel cup, if you have the black version it is the part with the white cap. I found that when I pulled my back open, the ankle strap was being pulled to down to the right instead of lifting up as it should. I was able to fix that by loosening the screw and re tightening them. what was happening to me was that i was constantly adjusting the strap, since the system was not working smoothly.

I called the guys at flow, and they are very helpful. they have spent countless hours on the phone with me and in email, trying to help me dial these in. They really do have the patience of a saint. as I am new to snowboarding and need a lot of hand holding to dial these in.

I have not had a chance to get out to the mountain to try out my tweaks in the wild, but am hopeful

scott_murray Well you only gave your post 2 hours, chill. Just move your bindings and try how that feels, bring a screwdriver and change it back if you don't like it.
