I have the same adjustments on my 2011 Quattro's. They are just bolts instead of mini ratchets. Not as fine of adjustment so if you need your strap to be just perfect it's going to be harder. It was fine for me and it does cut some ounces if you care.

Hi RJJ,

The 2012's were only modestly changed over the 2011's. I would expect very similar weights.

Although the FR was not in this group, we weighed a group of bindings last year and came up with this:

Here are some actual weights measured on our shipping scale. For each this was a single Size Large binding with disk and all mounting hardware:

Flow NXT-FSE = 2 lbs 4.8 oz

Flow Quattro SE = 2 lbs 2.37 oz

Flight 2 Men's = 2 lbs 3.1 oz

Rome 390 = 2 lbs 2.32 oz

Union Force = 2 lbs 2.44 oz


Flow bindings are typically right in there with high end standard entry bindings weight wise.

We have begun recieveing 2012 Flow already and have two more 40 foot containers on their way to us as we speak

When we get that unpacked and counted in, I will get some weights on the new models. My guess is that they are similarly weighted to last year.

Higlights on bindings include Urethane multi-adjustable highbacks, Mind blowing weight savings, and refinements of straps, cables, and ratchets.

Any questions on Flow 2012, ask away. We are stoked to be going on our 16th year as a Flow dealer!

Then they wouldn't be flows then, would they? I started riding Flows this season, and I'm not likelly to change back to traditional two straps any time soon. My first ride with them was pure joy. It was like I'd been blind before, and suddenly I could see, and every color was a rainbow. Fast, comfortable, responsive. Pure fun.
