Flow have always carved their own path, starting with the first Flow bindings in 1996, which smashed the status quo that a binding was two straps and a fixed heel. flow believed that snowboarding should be only about fun ever since the day they first created bindings that make your life easier. Set-it and forget-it.
Flows are the original 'rear entry' binding. They have one large strap section that is fixed over the top of the foot and a high-back that drops down for access into the binding. They are considered the 'marmite' of snowboarding bindings, with most riders either loving or hating them.

The Power-Triangle is the cable that runs from the hiback to the centre of the baseplate, creating a structural triangle for optimum energy transfer that makes for quick, easy and efficient turns. Putting pressure on your heels gives a direct force from your hiback to your mounting point, and vice versa for toeside turns.
To get into your bindings, fold the Reclining HiBack fully down and slide your foot in. Folding it back up engages the Active Strap which in turn tightens the PowerStrap as the hiback locks shut, triggering the Power-Triangle and allowing you to feel the same perfect fit every time.
To get out, simply release the clasp and fold the Reclining HiBack down again and see the Active Strap lift away, allowing you greater maneuverability to move your foot back out without any awkwardness. Getting in and out of your bindings is faster and easier than ever.
The universal interface and unrivaled versatility of our reclining hiback and full-sized LSR ratchets offer the ease of use and the possibility to choose how you want to enter and exit your bindings. Not only that, but with a choice between Fusion and Hybrid straps on most models you can choose between the full Flow System, or a more traditional two-strap binding without sacrificing any advantages.
Cons of Flow Snowboard Bindings
Flow bindings are meant to be more easily put on while standing up. However, this means that it is actually more difficult to strap into these snowboard bindings while sitting down– which is sometimes necessary if you are boarding on a particularly steep slope.
