Core Technology

These are the three fundamentals that make
Flow bindings an industry leader.


The Original Reclining Hiback

The fully flat reclining hiback is a pivotal part for the fastest SpeedEntry.

PowerTriangle

The steel cable creates a structural triangular geometry for optimal energy transfer from hiback to baseplate.

PowerStraps

These straps cover a larger area of your mid-foot and connect the ankle and toe zones, for a more convenient, comfortable and more powerful riding experience.

PowerStraps

Flow 3D-shaped PowerStrap footstraps cover a larger area of your foot, especially over the critical midfoot area and they connect the ankle and toe straps together. This results in more control over your snowboard and better energy transfer in your turns, while you do not have to tighten these straps to the point where you cut off your blood circulation and get cold and cramped feet. Why torture your feet when you can get the performance and comfort of Flow PowerStraps?

 

Our Flow PowerStraps and the adjustment buckles are also designed to work seamlessly with the SpeedEntry reclining hiback. You have to adjust these foot-straps to your boot only once, then you lock the ratchets into place, and you can immediately start to enjoy the ease of getting into and out of your bindings through the hiback. Set-it and forget-it means: always enjoy the perfect and consistent tightness, no hassle with ratchets in the snow, and with our new LSR-ratchets you can still easily make adjustments on the fly or open & close the foot-straps when you don’t feel like using the hiback.


Fusion PowerStrap

The FUSION PowerStrap is 3D-shaped, fuses the ankle and toe zones over the midfoot, and is padded for a super confortable form-fit to your boot. This PowerStrap provides maximum support and energy transmission.

Hybrid PowerCapStrap

The HYBRID PowerCapStrap is a revolutionary DUEL-Entry hybrid between Flow's SpeedEntry convenience and conventional 2-strap SideEntry, merging the best of both. The toe cap delivers a perfect fit every time.

Exo-Fit PowerStrap

The EXO-FIT PowerStrap features an exoskeleton support-frame that wraps the 3D-shaped EVA and form fits perfectly to your boot while providing great ankle support and energy transmission.

Buckles

Set-it and Forget-it!  All Flow buckles lock 2-ways! Truly a hassle free SpeedEntry experience. Fine tune your bindings only once and then be on your way.


LSR Buckles

These innovative LockingSlapRatchet-buckles give you the option to easily get in and out of your bindings any which way you like, whether SpeedEntry or SideEntry.

MINI-Ratchet Buckles

Precisely fit your PowerStrap to your boot and micro-adjust on the fly if needed. Simply pull the lightweight Airframe-lever and lock it down to secure your preferred strap tightness.

QuickSet Buckles

Adjust your straps on the medial side to fit your boot. Easy, secure and the convenient numbers on the ladderstraps help you dial in your setting.

Hibacks

Flow hibacks fully recline so you can get in and out of a Flow binding faster and with no hassle or sitting down. The PowerTriangle cable efficiently picks up the energy from the hiback and directs it into the baseplate.


UniBack Hiback

Lightweight 1-piece hibacks that fully recline for easy SpeedEntry & Exit and the comfortable EVA takes the pressure off your legs.

ModBack Hiback

The modular hibacks separate the lower and upper zones for targeted strength,support, and flex where you need it. On the NX2, Fuse, and ISIS series, the lower zone also automatically triggers N.A.S.T.Y.

SupportPanel Tweak Factor

The upper zone of the ModBacks use independently adjustable SupportPanels with model-specific "Tweak-Factor" flexes and anatomical shapes, to deliver fine-tuned performance and flex. A lower factor = softer feel, while a higher factor = overall more supportive.

Baseplates and Footbeds

All of Flows baseplates are uniquely engineered to transmit energy directly to the board without loss of efficiency or natural board feel.


Rockered Baseplate

Engineered to transmit energy directly to the board without loss of efficiency. The minimized contact area with the board, channels your power where it needs to go, while the rocker corners of the baseplate allow any type of board to maintain optimal flex. Offered on ALL Flow binding models.

BankBeds

BankBeds are full-length EVA-footbeds with 2.5º canting for optimized fit, support, and energy transfer. Featured on the NX2, Fuse, and ISIS series.


OC Kush

OC-Kush cushioning dampens landings and absorbs chatter. Featured on the NX2 series in the OC-Kush basepad, which fits perfectly to the rockered baseplate shape for efficient energy transfer. Some NX2 and Fuse series models feature OC-Kush toe and heel impact inserts for additional comfort.
