How do you get around this with Flows which seem to require the high back by design?
Buy the NXT's after a season the backs as shitty plastic as they are will bust right off given you a low back binding
The high end Flows have two serious design flaws. 1 the backs snap from pressure getting your boot in. 2. The hardware sucks they use a screw to a plastic tab. Ever heard of Nyloc's Flow?
Other then that you can't beat the flows. Clickers are out of production. (plus they ball up in warmer snow) The cinch is well double the cost of flows.
Yeah any binding will work but in lighter wind conditions it sure is nice to put one foot in and the other to put pressure on you kite. Once you start moving you just throw your other foot in and throw the back in postion. DONE.
regular bindings just aren't as nice. Getting your settings down does take more time then a simple ratchet system.
you normally have two ratchets per binding. Flows have 4 ratchets per binding. Nice thing tho once you find the right setting. you lock it in and it stays. As long as those pesky screws don't fall out when your edging for that big jump.
