CORE-TECHNOLOGY AND ACTIVE STRAP TECHNOLOGY

EXPLAINED BY THE DESIGN TEAM.

These fundamental technologies make Flow bindings an industry leader. Active Strap Technology automatically lifts up the footstraps when you open the reclining hiback, and actively tightens them again to your personal position when you close the hiback. This reduces friction and creates more room for your boots, so that getting in & out of your bindings is faster and easier than ever.

RECLINING HIBACK

The fully Reclining Hiback is a pivotal part for the fastest easy-in easy-out binding system. When you open the reclining hiback, a simple system actively lifts up the strap, and this same system tightens the strap automatically when you close the hiback

POWER-TRIANGLE

The Flow high-tensile steel cable creates a structural triangle between the hiback and baseplate for optimum energy transfer and making quick, easy and efficient turns.

POWER-STRAPS

Flow PowerStraps are 3D-shaped and cover the critical mid-foot area, connecting the ankle and toe straps. The result is more control and better energy transfer. Also no need to overtighten, which benefits bloodcirculation, and avoids pressure points and cold, cramped feet!

ACTIVE STRAP

When you open the hiback, the footstrap gets actively pushed out of the way, so you can easily and conveniently get your boot in and out of the binding. With the same ease, the Power-Strap footstrap hugs your boot at the consistent tightness you first set it at each time you close the hiback.

Baseplate

Hear It From The Team That Designed It!

Baseplate

EXPLAINED BY THE DESIGN TEAM.

All of Flow’s rockered baseplates are engineered to transfer energy directly to the board without loss of effi ciency or natural board feel. The minimized contact area with the board effi ciently channels power towards the edges, while the rockered corners of the baseplate allow any type of board to maintain optimal fl ex.

ROCKERED CORNERS

The rockered corners on the Axis-Series are designed with more cushioning on corners closer to the centeraxis of the snowboard. This helps the board maintain a better and more natural flex.

OFFSET MULTI-DISKS

All adult and youth bindings feature our Multi-disk. So right out of the box, these bindings can be mounted on 4x4, 4x2, 3HP and the M6 Channel without the need for an accessory channel-disk. The hole-patterns are offset from the center of the disk, for more toe-heel or stance-width adjustability.

OFF-AXIS POWERBEAMS

Off-Axis PowerBeams on the Axis-Series align more towards the toe and heel edges of the snowboard, if the binding is mounted on an angle on the board, for more efficient power/energy transfer. This accommodates more effortless and more powerful riding.

OFFSET CABLE-ATTACHMENTS

The PowerTriangle cable on the Axis-Series is fixated onto the baseplate asymmetrically, so the end-points meet up closer to the middle-axis of the snowboard when the bindings are mounted on an angle. This helps with more evenly power transfer and a more balanced feel.

BANKBEDS

BankBeds are full-length EVA footbeds with 2.5º canting for optimized fit, support and energy transfer. Some models offer additional N-Gel cushioning, which helps absorb chatter and dampens landings. Additionally, the new footbeds with Slip-N-Grip plates in Nylon for the NX2-TM or Carbon for the NX2- CARBON, allow the forefoot to easily slide into and out of the binding.

NX2-SERIES

The NX2-Series is a lightweight Aluminum-alloy rockered baseplate. This is our stiffest and most responsive baseplate, for riders who want immediate response and direct edge control.

FUSE-SERIES

The FUSE-Series is a Glass-filled Nylon rockered baseplate, with Aluminum-alloy adjustable sidewings. This is a slightly softer baseplate compared to the NX2, but still very fun, direct and responsive, for riders that prefer the feel of a molded baseplate. In the Carbon-Infused Nylon material as used on the Fuse-Carbon, they offer increased rigidity to maximize power transfer and control.

AXIS-SERIES

The AXIS-Series is a Glass-filled Nylon rockered baseplate with an asymmetrical design for optimal energy transfer. Wider than the NX2 and Fuse for stability and easy access, but with off-axis PowerBeams, asymmertical rockercorners and offset cable-attachments for a direct and balanced transfer of power to your board.

HIBACKS

MODBACK

The modular hiback separates the lower and upper zone for targeted strength, support and flex where you need it. The Glass-filled Nylon heelcup is medium-stiff for fast and playful riding, and triggers the ActiveStrap Technology. The ATM.8 SupportPanel on the NX2 can be fully adjusted up&down as well as sideways for a custom height and rotation. Molded in Glass-filled Nylon and shaped slightly flatter and more narrow, it offers a perfect balance of stiffness and support with lateral flexibility for freedom of movement.

ASYM HADRON-HIBACK

The 1-piece Asymmetrical Fuse UniBack is a lightweight hiback shaped for a perfect fit with the boot contour and canted riding angles, and delivering a wider range of support for more drive. Molded in our Glass-filled Nylon material on the Fuse, Omni and NX2-TM, they deliver a great balance of response and playfulness. In the Carbon-Infused Nylon material as used on the Fuse- Carbon and NX2-CARBON, they offer increased rigidity to maximize power transfer and control.

ASYM UNIBACK AXIS

The 1-piece Asymmetrical Axis UniBack is a medium-stiff Glassfilled Nylon hiback shaped for a perfect fit with the boot contour and canted riding angles, and has a supportive spine with a more forgiving lateral flex for a great mix of all-mountain and freestyle riding.

Power-Strap

Hear It From The Team That Designed It!

Power-Strap

EXPLAINED BY THE DESIGN TEAM.

Flow PowerStraps are 3D-shaped footstraps that cover a larger area of your foot, especially over the critical mid-foot area, connecting the ankle and toe straps. The result is more control over your snowboard and better energy transfer into your turns. There is no need to overtighten these straps, which helps you maintain better blood circulation, while avoiding pressure points and cold, cramped feet!

Whether they be our lightweight ExoFrame PowerStraps, our extra plush ExoKush PowerStraps, or our ComfortFit and UniFit straps with EVA-foam cores, all of our straps are designed to deliver the benefits of the original Flow PowerStrap technology.

FUSION POWERSTRAP

Fusion one-piece PowerStraps are 3D-shaped for a great fit, and cover a larger area of your foot for more comfort and control. Best Easy-Entry and Set-It and Forget-It performance.

HYBRID POWERSTRAP

Hybrid PowerStraps connect the ankle strap to a more conventional toecap strap, for the perfect mix of control and flexibility. Easy-Entry with more of an ankle and toecap strap feel.

Fusion Straps

EXO-KUSH POWERSTRAP

The expanded-EVA bottom layer of the Fusion ExoKush strap provides a perfect combination of comfort, control and lightness as it locks together with the two ExoSpines for uncompromised performance and comfort.

EXO-FRAME POWERSTRAP PRO

With same shape and construction as the Exo-Frame Powerstrap, the PRO version is injected in a stiffer TPU composite for increased performance and response.

EXO-FRAME POWERSTRAP

The upper layer of two ExoSpines over the ankle and toe zones with the lightweight, injected Fusion strap frame suspended underneath work together to distribute pressure evenly and focus energy into the baseplate.

Comfort Fit POWERSTRAP

The ComfortFit Powerstrap is a traditionally stitched strap with a foam-core for the perfect mix of control and comfort.

Hybrid Straps

HYBRID EXO-KUSH

The Expanded-EVA ankle-strap of the Hybrid ExoKush provides a perfect combination of comfort, control and lightness.

HYBRID EXO-FRAME Pro

With same shape and construction as the Hybrid Exo-Frame, the PRO version is injected in a stiffer TPU composite for increased performance and response.

HYBRID EXO-FRAME

Suspended underneath the Hybrid Spine, the injected ankle-strap frame with Auxetic pattern delivers great form-fitting support.

TOECAP STRAP

HEXO TOECAP STRAP

The Hexo Toecap strap features AuxTech®; a 3D hinged Auxetic pattern for next level connected comfort.

Buckles

LSR - Locking Slap Ratchet

Locking Slap Ratchet (LSR) buckles give you the option to easily get in and out of your bindings any way you choose. Whether Set-it and Forget-it SpeedEntry, or side-entry like a 2-strap, they lock down to secure your preferred footstrap tightness.

QUICK-SET

Adjust your straps on the medial side to fit your boot and keep the footstrap centered. Easy and secure, the numbers on the ladder-straps help you conventiently dial in your setting.
