"Keep up with skiers!" 8/23/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Flow M9
  • Pros:  Extremely fast clip in and really comfy, Supplied discs can suit multiple board brands, No cold bum while you ratchet your bindings
  • Cons:  More fiddly initially/can be hard setup, Hash pattern (diamonds) on pads can ice up., Don't fold flat (need to release strap to do so)
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   Beginners normally have trouble with these bindings, as they are taught to strap in while sitting. If on the flat, these are straight in. On a slope, just sit the board's toeside edge in the snow and have the heels in the air so you can easily kick your boot in. Setting up was not a problem for me, I've had Flows previously. Fitting the boot is the time consuming task, but is probably easiest on the slope (I normally unstrap to fold the highback down for transport/storage). I normally clip the highback up, step in and then tension the top strap over the boot. I then release the highback, pull my foot out, kick it back in and flip the highback up again. Tighten the ratchets a few clicks and then try again. Obviously, if you over tighten, it's really difficult to put the boot in and out. Once you have it set, you won't need to adjust it again. I fold them flat before hitting the slopes, set them up once and not have to think about it again for the rest of the trip. The supplied discs match different patterns of boards. I only have standard 4 hole pattern, but it looks as if they will suit the Burton 3 hole as well. The Flow range allow a really quick clip in, and I happen to ride with Skiers, who quite often comment, At least you have decent bindings! This has been great, as while I can't keep up with them yet, they are willing to wait 3 seconds while I strap in. I found the pads can ice up a bit, the diamond pattern allowing the ice to grab pretty quick. Clean them out when you can, or borrow a skier's cheat stick. The only other thing to mention is that the heel cup does better with a narrower boot heel. I ride K2 Proof boots (not sure what year, with orange trim) and I don't think the heel is huge, but it can be tight. I've read that the Flow boots have a narrower heel to suit better. All in all, I love these bindings, comfy, fast, nice look, and something different. I recommend Flows to my friends, but most aren't up for buying gear yet (or they ski...)
