Flow Bindings 2012-2013

14 Apr, 2012


Over 15 years ago, Flow Snowboards began building bindings with the speed entry system to make getting in and out of bindings easier. For 2013, they continue to improve their binding system and bring out new technology to make it better than ever. New for 2013 is the NX2 series with N.A.S.T.Y new active strap technology allows for speed entry and side entry options.

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 12-13, 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.
