Default Quick advice / help - broken binding

For those familiar with the flow bindings, how safe is this to ride. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1420836733.764494.jpg

I came down the mountain fine with them broken like that. I still have the cables supporting me. But I did feel some heel lift on toe side turns.

I am at big white for another two days. Shops won't touch it, nor only rent bindings.

Opinions plz.

is that part of the heel cup/highback? if so it's toast. sucks...maybe time to do a performance rental and demo some boards/bindings....or demo a board, take it to your car and switch out the bindings to your board... idk

or you could try taking apart and do some no back riding...like now bindings

I went out again, the snow was too good. I used some tape to keep it together. The cables did the job and kept me tight in. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1420847622.398176.jpg

I wouldn't ride it like that. Did the chair lift crush it?

Wow, I have those same bindings. I love mine and I have had no issues. I hope FLOW CS takes care of it for you. Keep us posted. Thanks.

Haha awesome. Duct tape ftw

Back in the day, my dad's emergency kit was duct tape and hay wire. Regardless of the issue a patch could be made with the 2 or either. Haha

I have a roll hangin' off my tool belt.
That & a roll of all round.

If one of those 2 can't fix it?
It can't be fixed.
