    Posted: Oct/22/2006 at 6:36pm
Mike Says: Speed, convenience, value are the words K2 uses to describe the Cinch CTL Binding. The K2 Cinch Bindings combine different technologies, which create a unique binding. The Cinch CTL Bindings offer the support and adjustability of a traditional strap binding with the convenience of a rear entry binding (flow). K2 has seen great success with their Cinch bindings and continue to expand their line. Jump on band wagon and rock these bindings.

TongueGreat binding.  Got a pair just 2 weeks ago and fell in luv.  The rest of my family rides Flow but these rock and are much easier to get in and out of.  Bad side - later that day tore my acl trying new tricks (no fault of the bindings though)  guess i'll wait till next year for the full tryout.

what is the difference in the weight between the k2 cinch and the flow bindings??  I want to get a set, but I really cant decide because everyone I talk to says the pair they have on is better weather it is the k2 or the flow.

I'm gonna be like everyone else.  I have the K2 and won't go back.  I did ride flows for a season but to me found them harder to get into than the K2 since the top of the flow doesn't rise when the back is lowered.  As far as weight I again go for the K2.  Not that there is much difference but pack your board up a cliff a few times and you'll see the diff.  Good luck - Go K2!

i have had a pretty great season riding with the cinch bindings.  They are very supportive and very easy to get in and out of... I recommend giving them a go.

I like the Cinches better than the Flows I've tried (I liked Flows better than anything else tho). My bud seems to think the Cinches are harder to get into. I think they're about the same, but I like the pull strap on the high back to help close them up. It's easier to reach when I'm strappin'  in on the lift. Shocked

I have some 08/09 CTS's and they were about 8oz heavier(that's for the pair) than my Flow Teams, which are lighter than most other Flow bindings. These were both size large.

I've only had the CTS's a few months, after upgrading from some older CTL's I've had for about two seasons. No problems with any of the Cinches so far, where I'm always worried about losing hardware on the Flows due to past experience. It's been a while since I've had any problems with them, but I can't seem to forget about it. I guess you should be checking hardware on any binding every once in a while. The Cinches seem more robust and have given me no reason to worry since day one.
No Sig... I'm just not that witty or creative

I hate to revive this thread, but I have K2 Cinch CTS bindings. I love them personally, but the weight is killer. Although they are heavy, they feel like regular bindings generally. Responsive and don't feel anything like Flows. The drawback of putting the foot from the rear makes it difficult in steep areas, but not always. It takes some getting used to or you can always strap in like a normal binding. A negative is that the rachet system is slow and not smooth because it is designed more for rear entry. Aside form that I love them. Would i recommend them absolutely to anyone who wants to cruise around. 

For the person that likes to hang around the park I don't recommend them because they are heavy. You would definitely be better off getting a lighter binding that wouldn't make you feel like its holding you down. 

I hope this answers the questions.

My bro went from Flow to Cinch and the Cinch was no cinch at all.  It felt less responsive and it's harder to step in while riding.  The Flow is heavier than the Cinch and the Cinch has pretty crappy ratchets.  All in all, if you want easy in and out then go with Flow.
