  1. stiff board + medium flex bindings?

    Bindings
    I have a new (ish) long (168cm *), stiff, full camber board for learning to improve my carving at speed (keeping closer to my skier wife). I paired it with super stiff NOW O-Drive bindings. Everything's great on groomers - great for carving where small movements and super responsiveness is a...
  2. Burton Genesis X question on Flex and whether to use for beginner

    Bindings
    I’m a beginner and am learning to link turns. Have been 8x times and plan to go 5-6x/year. I just purchased the Genesis X 2018 binding and it is rated medium stiff. Today at the snowboard store I was told by one of the guys that this binding is too stiff and I shouldn’t use it. I’m conflicted...
  3. Flex and Weight of riders

    Boards
    I'm really curious about the between board flex and weight of riders. Someone said NS Funslinger is good for all around, another said NS Proto Type 2 is good for all around. For example, flex 5 medium snowboard deck could be stable for a rider, weight 180lbs, for over 40ft big kicker and...
  4. Too much flex on the K2 T1, is this normal?

    Boots
    Yo dudes, I need some help with the flex of the K2. I'm not finding too much difference from my Darko and based on the online reviews "you can barely flex this thing when it’s new and it’s almost like an old leather ski boot", well, the pair I got can definitely flex, is there anything wrong...

  7. flexible vs. stiff bindings

    Bindings
    Stiff bindings with a high flex rating are associated with advanced riders. Flexible bindings are associated with beginners and intermediate riders. Why? What sort of flexing are beginners doing that advanced riders do not do? Thanks.

    Snowboarding General Chat
    I'm completely new to snowboarding. I won an Arbor Zygote (soft flex) and got some Burton Mission Re:Flex bindings (6/10 flex) for super cheap. Ive read that this would be a bad combination, but for now i guess it will have to do... :( Now my question is, what flex boots should i get? I was...
  9. K2 happy hour for buttering?

    Boards
    Hey guys, I'm super interested in the K2 Happy Hour, but I am really conflicted. I REALLY want to learn how to butter, ever since I started boarding years back I wanted to learn after seeing two kids spinning like helicopters down the mountain. I ride a HUGE K2 anagram, 163, waaaay too large for...

  11. 2014 K2 Maysis flex and toeside turn

    Boots
    Hi All, I am wondering if something has any ideas about this. I have a pair or 2014 K2 Maysis with about 7 days of riding on them. I also had a boot fitter make a custom heat molded footbed for these boots so there is no heal movement. The issue that I am having is with toeside turns. Don't...
  12. Amount of flex needed in bindings?

    Bindings
    I'm working on getting together my first setup, and I'm trying to figure out what binding I should get. I've ridden a couple times a year for several years but have always used rentals. I'm decent - able to go down all the runs and do some smaller jumps and smaller rails, but nothing...
