Flow Bindings 2011-2012

14 Apr, 2011


It’s hard to believe that 15 years ago, Flow Bindings began the speed entry system they are now known for.  A system that has been designed outside of the “norm” box for bindings, the kick, lock and drop system featuring the reclining highback that makes strapping in easy.  In 11-12, they continue to improve their binding designs towards three simple concepts:  performance, comfort and convenience.

Flow’s core technology features the original reclining highback, the one piece 3D powerstrap and the patented power triangle.  These fundamentals elements define a flow binding.  For technology in 11-12, Flow features a rockered baseplate that reduces the actual footprint on the binding and allows your board to flex naturally.  In the highback, the Flex zone tweak.6 or .7 allows you to get your jib on with different flexing top sections.  The 3D powerstrap comes in three options:  I-Flex, A-Flex and CI-Flex for the ultimate feel and comfort.  Micro adjustability on the bindings allows you to set it and forget it.

This is a sneak peak of Flow Bindings so not all bindings have write-ups and photos.
