Flux Bindings review
I now own two pairs of Flux Bindings.
on my 158 Lib Tech TRS BTX, I have a pair of Flux Titans, and on my Arbor Abacus 164 I have a pair of Flux Feedbacks.
I purchased the Titans earlier this year for about $25 and they were in really good shape with the exception of the toe ratchet on one binding. If you havent seen a pair of Flux bindings they have a unique ratchet system that is connected to their capstrap. So I called Flux and told them my problem. Within 4 days, Flux had mailed me not one, but two brand new Captsraps with ratchets, 1 for each binding and a ton of sweet stickers.
I was impressed, after dealing with a slew of companies over the past few years that were either extremely difficult to get ahold of or dealt with you as a claim number it, these guys were very down to earth. So I decided to purchase Feedbacks for my Abacus.
Feedbacks came in today, nice box, tons of goodies. The straps are cushy as HELL, Ive never felt a strap as comfortable as these on any binding, Rome, Union, Salomon, K2, Burton, Ride, Nidecker, Technine.... NONE!
Everything was extremely well organized, all my screws and washers were in a nice holder so I didnt want to dig around a bag.
The entire binding is tool-less so everything can be adjusted on the mountain without tools. The box included a fully detailed map out of the bindings telling me where everything is, what it does and how to adjust it. they also included a pair of rubber strips that replace an existing strip on the binding which affects the flex of the bindings. I dont know how it works, but I will post when I can figure it out...
Ive only ridden my titans, for one day, on a board Im not used to. But the bindings already impress me, they've got a solid hold, with good lateral flex. no pressure points what-so-ever, and are very responsive. They are a tad heavier than your average binding, but Im not overly converned with that.
Overall I now have a new favorite binding company and Flux has expressed enough of a professional attitude to win me over as a dedicated rider.
