Binding Technology

Flow bindings are designed unlike any other binding. We wanted our bindings to be the most comfortable, performance driven, but easy to use bindings on the hill. Because we believe snowboarding should be fun, we don’t like sitting down in the snow, and we expect more from a binding than just holding the boot down on the board. The result is a binding which is engineered to give you a better day on the hill simply by being the most comfortable binding, giving you more power and control over your snowboard so that making turns and doing tricks is easier than ever. On top of it all, our bindings are super easy to use. This is the essence of every Flow binding.

Core Technology

These are the three fundamental technologies that can be found in every single Flow binding, and which make Flow bindings an industry leader.

      The Reclining Hiback is a pivotal part for the fastest SpeedEntry.


Active Strap Technology

SpeedEntry has never been more convenient without sacrificing the superior performance, comfort, and power transmission that Flow bindings are famous for. With our revolutionary Active Strap Technology (N.A.S.T.Y.), the Strap automatically lifts up when you open the Reclining Hiback and actively tightens again when you close the Hiback. Active Strap Technology reduces friction and creates more room so that getting in and out of your binding is faster and easier than ever. We’re changing the game in binding performance. Featured on NX2, Fuse and OMNI models.

    When you open the Hiback, the Strap 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 footstrap hugs your boot at the consistent tightness you first set it at, each time you close the Hiback.

Power Straps

Flow PowerStraps cover a larger area especially over the mid-foot, connecting the ankle and toe zones for a more comfortable, convenient, and more powerful riding experience. You do not have to tighten our PowerStraps to the point where you cut off your circulation and get cramped feet like with other brands bindings. Never torture your feet again during a full day of riding with the performance and comfort of Flow PowerStraps.
