FLOW BINDINGS FOR WOMEN – one for every wallet and skill level

When it comes to backdoor bindings, snowboarders all over the world probably made a decision: They like them or not. I personally believe that today´s FLOW bindings are technically so advanced, that at least 80% of riders out there can buy them without worries of getting a wobbly binding with crappy response. If you´re a pro and are used to strap bindings for years and years, than I can understand you might get not the same, secured feeling in a FLOW. Other than, give it a try! Check out the following FLOW BINDINGS FOR WOMEN

FLOW has bindings for the ladies out there for every ability level. I would always recommend to get bindings made for women since they are not just smaller version of mens in different colours, but specifically designed to fit your anatomical needs!

 

FLOW BINDINGS FOR WOMEN

FLOW BINDINGS FOR WOMEN

FLOW gives you two different strap options on their bindings to ensure you get the perfect fit. You can choose between the Fusion and the Hybrid strap.

The Fusion…

… is FLOW´s typical one-piece strap that covers your whole foot. One massive upside of that is that pressure is spread out more evenly compared to classic strap bindings. That results in less pressure points and a more comfortable ride. If you have issues all the time, definitely consider a FLOW binding!

The Hybrid strap…

covers a lot of your foot as well, but has a more conventional toe strap. A toe strap has the upside, that it pushes your boot nice and firmly into the heelcup of the binding (a U-shaped piece that wraps around the back of your boot under the highback).
I never had such a Hybrid strap and since a FLOW binding does not have a heelcup at all, I could imagine you have to readjust it after every time you opened the binding. Although, most manufactures of conventional strap bindings do have toe straps because they secure your boot better in my opinion.

If you want the true set-and-forget experience, I would go for the Fusion strap. If you don´t mind a bit of readjusting and want the toe-strap, go for the Hybrid!


FLOW OMNI

FLOW BINDINGS FOR WOMEN

The FLOW OMNI is the top shelf binding in the women´s section. It´s an all-mountain binding for the intermediate to advanced snowboarder. The response is set on a medium to stiff 6 and has all the performance you need to go fast and wild. Fantastic comfort and the perfect fit on every ride!

 

  • Multidisk: Mounts on every board there!
  • Active Strap Technology: When you lower the highback, it actively lifts up the straps of the binding. Than ensures you can easily get in and out without loosing your tight fit! Game-changing argument for FLOWs!
  • Rockered Baseplate: Minimizes the contact area between binding and board. That gives the board room to fully flex and a better more direct energy transfer from you to your board.
  • Canted BankBeds: The footbed is ankled at 2.5° to go easy on your knees and give you a more natural stance. More support through a better fit, more pop and better energy transfer.
  • Full length EVA padding for great comfort that keeps you riding.
  • LSR-Ratchets: work just like buckles on strap bindings and therefore can be easily adjusted and even open up all the way. That gives you the opportunity to use your FLOW the classic way, too.
  • Mod-Back: A highback made of two pieces. The lower part is made of aluminium for strength and response, the upper part made of nylon for more flex, comfort and a better feeling.

 

FLOW JUNO

FLOW BINDINGS FOR WOMEN

The FLOW JUNO is bit cheaper and bit more playful. It has a medium FLEX of 5, is made for every terrain and perfect for the intermediate rider who does not need the top-level gear. Unfortunately it´s missing the ActiveStrap Technology, but other than that, great and easy to use binding.

 

  • Multidisk: Mounts on every board out there!
  • Rockered Baseplate: Minimizes the contact area between binding and board. That gives the board room to fully flex and a better more direct energy transfer from you to your board.
  • Canted BankBeds: The footbed is ankled at 2.5° to go easy on your knees and give you a more natural stance. More support through a better fit, more pop and better energy transfer.
  • Full length EVA padding for great comfort that keeps you riding.
  • LSR-Ratchets: work just like buckles on strap bindings and therefore can be easily adjusted and even open up all the way. That gives you the opportunity to use your FLOW the classic way, too.
  • GF UNI-BACK: GF-Nylon highback with fully padding for comfort without the lack of response.

 

FLOW MINX

FLOW BINDINGS FOR WOMEN

Even cheaper and even softer are we getting with the Minx. It has a soft to medium response of 4. It´s easy to ride and a good choice for everyone who is beyond the beginner stage but does not need more than actually needed! Makes sense? 😉

 

  • Combidisk: Only fits on boards with 4×4 and 2×4. You can buy a separate disc for 3D and the channel.
  • Rockered Baseplate: Minimizes the contact area between binding and board. That gives the board room to fully flex and a better more direct energy transfer from you to your board.
  • EVA toe and heel insert. Cushioned on your heel and toes to absorb impacts and give you more comfort.
  • LSR-Ratchets: work just like buckles on strap bindings and therefore can be easily adjusted and even open up all the way. That gives you the opportunity to use your FLOW the classic way, too.
  • Composite UNI-BACK: Softer and more playful than the one on the JUNO.

 

FLOW HAYLO

FLOW BINDINGS FOR WOMENThe FLOW HAYLO is the softest and most basic binding. It´s focused on the beginner ride and offers a forgiving and easy-to-use set up. It has everything you need to master your first turn and if you like the softness, it can be your binding beyond the beginner stage. It only comes with FLOWs Powerstrap, not with the FUSION or the Hybrid. That means you don´t have the option of a toe-strap. Also, you get a more simple version of buckles instead of the fancy LSR-Ratchets and therefore can´t open the strap all the way to use the binding the traditional way. They are more designed to set them up once and only fine-tune during the day.

 

  • Combidisk: Only fits on boards with 4×4 and 2×4. You can buy a separate disc for 3D and the channel.
  • Rockered Baseplate: Minimizes the contact area between binding and board. That gives the board room to fully flex and a better, more direct energy transfer from you to your board.
  • EVA toe and heel insert. Cushioned on your heel and toes to absorb impacts and give you more comfort.
  • Mini Ratchet Buckels: Made to fit your Powerstrap nicely around your boots. You can still fine-tune relatively easy during the day.
  • EXO-Fit Powerstrap: That´s 3D-shaped EVA padding wrapped in supportive frame that covers your whole foot.

  1. Very thorough, and comprehensive article on female snow bindings. I will have to send my female snow bunny friends to your website. I am old school, and still ski with two skis, but seems like every time I go to the slopes, I am more in the minority. Well done.

    1. Hi Tom!

      I´m glad you like it! I think more people are trying skis again to be honest so it´s going to be pretty much even I reckon. We will see! Both is loads of fun 🙂 Tell your snow bunny friends I am here if they have any questions regarding gear!

  2. Very good information in a great, simplistic and comprehensive way. Not everyone who love snow boarding and skiing know all this information. You ha w provided that in your article. Thank you.

  3. You’ve helped me narrow down my choices for my next pair of flow bindings- fusion it is! thanks for all your research, and for focusing on a women’s product! Yay snowboarding!

  4. Awesome review for flow bindings! You definitely go into a lot of detail on each set up.

    I will have to show this to my girlfriend as she is currently looking for a new rig. Awesome site as well, I will be sure to bookmark it and check back often. Keep the content coming!

    Cheers

  5. Great review of the FLOW products. I know I can make a clearer decision on which one to buy now after reading this. Very good detail, thanks a lot.

  6. I have the 2016 Flow Omni biddings and I am having issues with how tight the power strap is. It is very difficult to pull the high back down to release my boot. Any suggestions on how to adjust this or help the issue?

    1. Hi Sam!

      Do you have issues to push down the lever on the back of the highback? If so, maybe you adjusted too much forward lean. Try to twist the little dial in the highback to give you less forward lean and therefore more room for your boot. Also, do you have that problem on both bindings or just on one?

      Some things to consider:
      – Do you have the proper binding size that fits the size of your boots?
      – Is the cable that runs from highback to baseplate sitting in the right position and isn´t twisted etc.
      – fully open up your forward lean and see whats happening.
      – is your power strap centered over your boots?

      I hope that already helps! If not, let me know!
