Highbacks? So last year.  You gotta give Flow some props for thinking outside the box though, right?

The ALL NEW Black Out is Flow’s answer to the die-hard camber rider. The name? Some one in creative didn’t think of anything the night before cause they got black out.

    how are they still in business? As far as I can tell Lago is the only real positive about the Flow brand

    to ride without highbacks requires rigidity of the heel loop. these are a strap with a ratchet and shit. pretty sure this hasn’t been tested in any way or they’d figure out a better plan… buut I feel that was about just about all of their product.

    The no high back bindings do have a solid heel cup with a ratchet, not a strap. And the team tested them out at hood over the summer. Quit talking out of your ass

    i feel that the ratchet on the heelcup of the no highback ones would get fucked up when you fall.

    haha i love how yobeat changed to caption on the highback-less binding from something negative about flow to something positive. (it used to say something like “as if your bindings werent recognizable enough” or something) did someone actually get in trouble or was this executive decision only a precautionary measure?

    @jerm, Shaun White actually pays all of their salaries, and Lago’s too.. just to keep them on handicapped product. Seriously, if Lago is that good riding in slippers, imagine what he could do with real bindings!

    I tried those no back bindings at a demo and I was pretty impressed. Different style of riding. Real surfy feel. Would be fucking awesome in the powder! especially with that darwin…

    Collab with Cobra Lord, stubby boots, the Darwin, no highback bindings??! I’d say that’s a smart move on their part. Paving the way for a trend that is quickly on the rise. The 90′s are coming back in a big way. Flow is on point with this stuff!

    Oh, but none of you are old enough to remember back to when snowboarding was cool.

    All you haters need to go try the no-backs, you’ll be wondering why you ever had a highback in the first place. My local shop put on a demo last night and everyone who tried these bindings was asking how soon they could get them. There’s zero heel lift and you have more control and response. I’ve been asking myself why we ever needed a highback in the first place since trying these.
