Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Which snowboard bindings??

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Got a great deal on a Capita Dan Brisse 157 freeride snowboard from 'Subvert' at Chill Factor, Manchester but have fallen out of love with my old Flow bindings & not sure what to replace them with... plus some shiny new (black/red?) ones would DEFINITELY improve my game! Very Happy Very Happy Looking for light & responsive, for the whole mountain.

Have looked at Union Force / Atlas & was recommended Burton Cartel / Union Factory Travis Rice by the shop, which look great but a but pricey...

Any suggestions appreciated (esp if you have seen any on sale...)

Thanks in advance

pablito69,
how 'old' are your 'old' flows?

I moved from Flows to Unions two seasons ago. Make the switch! I have both Force and Atlas, but haven't had much chance to ride the Atlas' yet. If you are going to do any free riding, then the Flow's just won't give you adequate response. Plus, I'm not sure why people thing it's so hard to use standard ratchets. I never sit down. Just bend over, ratchet up, gone.....

New style flows with the 'nasty' system are well worth a look.Basically the best of both worlds as you can use them like a conventional binding for example in powder where the old style flows were difficult to use or as a typical quick enyrt flow binding. they are not perfect but then what is ?

pablito69, after many years of Burton C60 and Co2 Bindings, last season i switched to Rossignol Experience Bindings. Stiff, Freeride orientated Binding and without doubt the comfiest and most responsive Binding i have used. This season it's been rebranded as the Rossignol XV Binding.

OR, if it's any use to you, i have a set of Burton Co2 Bindings (Black,Medium),still in the box and never mounted, that i'm prepared to sell for £100 o.n.o?

Thanks for all the replies!
Mitchell - my Flow bindings are 5years old, last year I spent the whole time either tightening them for more response or loosening them to let the blood flow back to my feet! Think I can manage some standard ratchet straps again now so that's what I'm definitely looking for, will take a look at the Rossignol XV to compare against the Union ones...

pablito69,
Horses for courses; I tend toward a step in binding as I have issues with restricted back movement from a childhood injury; just commenting that I have found the new NASTY flows a revelation; super easy step in but nice and tight when locked in.

Have a look at the contact pros, there some of the lightest bindings on the market and very responsive for a freestyle orientated binding

I like K2 Cinch, or at least I think that's what they are. Best of both types in one in my opinion.

Yeah because they'll work really well on a freeride board.

I just snagged some brand new union factory bindings for £130 off ebay and they're pretty sweet, I also use Ride El Hefe on my freeride board but I wouldn't want to pay full price for them they're really good though.
