pdxrealtor If you look at the RE;Flex disc mounted on the board you can see that it's setup to allow more of a natural board flex than with a traditional mounting disc.

It made sense to me when I viewed it and considered other options. But, I'm not all that experienced with riding tons of old, or for that matter, new tech.

IT just seemed to make sense to me.....


I think the diff. is so small, unless you're riding every day and paying attention you wouldn't even notice it.

I think the reflex is designed to flex with the board. When you're pressing forward like in the video, you'll actually be up on edge, not flat on the ground like that. I think it'll be minimal.
Exactly this.. Its just something new that you have to adjust too. Even on the flat of my carpet, it doesn't feel loose or like there would be a lack of performance. The bindings feel good overall. I didn't mean to try and steer anyone off of their picking up Re:Flex bindings. I think they will be badass out on the mountain.

I don't think it will be an issue tbh. Once you are in with your boot, it doesnt flex as much and Im talking I really have to pull to get it to flex a lot. With the boot strapped in, it not much at all. I'm picky so I went back after talking to Burton to verify. Wasn't a big deal at all...

I"m about to post a video that I just made so you can see the heel lift..
