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...


Riding:
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.

A+!

It's interesting. A lot of rave reviews have been coming in for this company. They do seem to be stepping it up.

I've been a Flux-pusher for years. '07 Super Titans still running strong, no issues what-so-ever.

Flux is a great company, with a great product. From spongy-soft urethane highbacks on the Titan RKs to ultra-responsive, yet still supple feel of more freeride dedicated Feedbacks, they're all top-notch.

Only reason I'd replace my Super Titans is to freshen up the colors, on their third year of shred.


If you're looking for an all-composite type baseplate, keep Flux at the top of your search. No one seems to do it better, IMHO.


Oh, by the way, Flux secured the worldwide trademark on "Cap Strap" this year, and their capstrap design seems to me to be the most comfortable and most effective out there.

ditto, been rocking my titans for 2 seasons now, no complaints. Even sold my rome's since I was no longer using them, just preferred always using the flux's.

Got to use my Super Titans last night for the first time on my Heritage. Real comfortable binding and very responsive. Did not find one bad thing about them. I did have a little play but that was my fault needed to make adjustments. Was nice to be able to make adjustments as the night went on with out having to carry any tools though.

The season is almost upon us!!!!

Get the regular titan or titan rk for the park.

PS. I love my flux bindings after riding them for about 2 months. The only thing i wish there was a cushion that covered the whole footbed on them.

well i'm not a park rat but i do hit the kickers from time to time. will the STs perform when i do get into the park? are they gonna give me problems buttering and doing spins and stuff off rollers because of the highback/stiffer platform?

the thing is i can get STs for a good price but originally i wanted the normal titans. i just dont want to end up buying something i wont be satisfied with

i'm thinking about getting the feedbacks.
im looking for a stiffer binding that is super comfy and is great all-mountain.

also, is the titan rk more flexible than the regular titan?
