The Flow NX2 GT Snowboard Binding is pumped up with all the premium features you need. The Hybrid PowerCapStrap moves away from Flow's usual one-piece design to give you a feel and response that's closer to a conventional binding. You still get with the quick in and out that Flow is known for. There's Bankbed 2.5° canting to keep your legs in alignment, giving your knees a break, even when you ride in a wider stance. The NX2 GT Bindings are pretty stiff, giving aggressive riders the support they desire.

For hard-charging freeriders who demand lightning-quick response and dependable support, the Flow NX2 GT Snowboard Binding is the way to go. A stiff flex, tons of control, and of course convenient entry and exit make the NX2 GT ready to tackle any terrain whether it's at the resort or in the backcountry.
The Hybrid PowerCap Strap still has Flow's signature rear-entry system to make getting in and out of your bindings quick and convenient, but also features a toe cap for riders who like the feel of a traditional binding strap. It's also equipped with N.A.S.T.Y. technology that automatically lifts the strap when the highback is reclined to make getting into your binding quicker and more painless than ever. The H-Series baseplate is rockered so that it makes minimal contact with your board, allowing better board flex and feel without sacrificing response. Modular highbacks separate the upper and lower zones for targeted strength, support, and flex where you need it. Bank Beds canted footbeds are angled to mimic natural leg position for greater power and reduced fatigue, and KushControl EVA padding dampens vibrations for a smooth ride and absorbs impacts from big drops
The Flow NX2 GT is an all-terrain destroyer. High-end technology infused with luxury like Bill Gates' mansion is what you are going to find here. Panel-fused shaping of the new Active HYBRID PowerCapStrap keeps things super light and responsive, while N.A.S.T.Y. and LSR-buckles allow SpeedEntry and SideEntry options and with set-it and forget-it convenience. Extra OC-Kush dampening under the forefoot absorbs harsh terrain and puts the Kush into cover. Aluminum alloy rockered baseplate with 2.5' Bank Beds for response and support helps you get the most out of your board's flex. The 4-way adjustable EVO.7 is a wider and asymmetrical SupportPanel made from Flow's Urethane.7 blend, to offer all-mountain support with some freestyle flex. The Aluminum offset Multi-disk can mount on 4x4, 3HP, and channel-M6 boards. The stiff flex makes the Flow NX2 GT super responsive.

This is Frankenbinding. These bindings are the bastard child of the ceaseless advancement in binding technology of the last decade, born from the amalgamation of all the best features of the competition, fated to rise above the competition and reign king of all that is holy in the world of snowboard binding.
1) The toe cap technology pioneered by burton/technine in 2003
2) The reclining highback technology championed by Flow since 1992 combined with the N.A.S.T.Y Active Strap introduced in 2012
3) V-Strap technology invented by Ride in 2009 and integrated as the Fusion Powerstrap.
Add the fact that these are by far the best constructed, most solid bindings I've laid my hands on and you've got yourself an indestructible package. Aluminum Alloy baseplate, aluminum buckles, these bindings are super responsive, stiff and strong.
If you've been hating on Flow before, it's time you took another look. This is not your grandpa's Flow binding. Fans of traditional strap-bindings will feel right at home with the snugness of the toe cap and fusion strap... but if you've been a fan of old-school flows (like me) you're in for a slap in the face: wake up, this is the future of snow, and this binding is it.
Slip on, tune in, drop out.
I've used traditional strap-in bindings, and for the sake of convenience I've used k2's cinch bindings. I have two requisites for my bindings, they have to be well constructed and stiff. I really liked K2's ratchet system, which is the reason I choose those over flow bindings in the past, but were too flexible and I never felt comfortable boarding at high speeds - plus the k2's were constructed out of plastic and I've had numerous breakages.
I recently picked up a pair of Flow NX2-GT and I couldn't be happier. The aluminum body is solid, the highback can be adjusted to your riding preference, and the ratchet system is quick and easy to use. These bindings give me total control and I'm able to confidently hit high speeds.
I will never go back to a traditional binding. The N.A.S.T.Y system allows you to easily slide your foot in and out when on the slopes. In response to dbap84207.. The mesh on the top of the binding is weak at best. I left my traps on the outside to avoid the mesh being torn. The mesh is more for cosmetics and not to hold your traps in.
Riding off the tram at the Bird, the faster your locked in and send it, the more freshies for you. I have tried all the others ( including past Flows which I never liked) . These are high-quality build, super supportive and the fit is spot on making them very responsive. Nicely Done
Having used flow bindings before, but being frustrated with trying to get my foot back into a tight binding, I decided to get the best one Flow makes. This binding does work a lot better than the older bindings. However I see two flaws:
First the footbed is canted so your boot sits in it canted, however the highback isn't canted. Not a big deal, I adjusted the back plate towards the inside to compensate. However the highback angle should really match your boot angle without having to do this.
Second but most disappointingly: The mesh on-top of the hybrid strap is incredibly weak. When trying them on in my living room I made sure to the ends of the straps fit under it smoothly, and I left them that way for days to make sure the straps "broke-in" to the correct radius. But on the first day out, of course ratcheting down the straps made them rip right through the mesh, and of course you can't even see that's happening in a snow-covered binding. So uncool for a $370 binding.
So I'm giving it 3 stars, because I do like riding in them but these two problems were easily foreseeable.
