Interesting, the burton ones specifically require standing up to engage. I reckon you could sit for harder pack snow but not in softer stuff.Greenturtle wrote: ↑Sun Dec 22, 2019 5:16 pmI have not used the burton ones specifically. I would make sure for kiting application they can be clicked in from a sitting position (doesn’t require full body weight) if possible before buying.
The Flow bindings would be something to look into as well for a quick binding option. Others using them seem to get in and out easily.
I use old style k2 clickers, works just ok. I personally like no backs on the bindings for kiting, so the flows wouldn’t work for me as the backs are necessary on those.
DEAD ON! I have seen used and used lots of bindings and observed the techniques that go with each system. I even have a pair of Flow "Freeballer(?)s" backless bindings. Regular "flip up" Flows are great for getting into standing and without fuss, as you can ride carefully for a short distance with the highbacks down. Then you can sit and lever them up. Or if you use foil kites, you just do everything with the kite braked in the back of the window. Then you can sit down to launch the kite or use the front lines to launch while still standing.edt wrote: ↑Mon Dec 23, 2019 12:12 amThe reason people like step one or flows is because they snow kite like they water kite. First they launch their kite then they grab their board and struggle to get into their bindings with the kite over head. If this is how you kite then flows or stepins are for you.
