The Flow Alpha is a binding that is focused on delivering no nonsense performance at a no-nonsense price. It’s a great binding for a newer rider. If you don’t want to have to sit down each run to strap in, then Flow’s easy access rear entry system does make things slightly simplified.
The Fusion ExoFit Powerstrap is a bit of a mouthful, but it sits over the top of your foot and allows seamless transfer from toe to heel. It has two ratchets to tighten up the front and back portions independently so you can be sure of a great fit no matter what boots you’re rocking. The ratchets are able to be locked once you’ve secured the perfect fit, so no having to worry about loosening off as you’re riding.
“A rockered baseplate creates a smaller overall footprint, allowing more natural flex underfoot”
The softer flexing highback make for an easy going and mellow ride, great for progressing or just if you’re looking to cruise around. Despite the softer side to side flex, the highback retains its edge to edge power with a steel cable that becomes taut when energy is exerted toe to heel.
A rockered baseplate creates a smaller overall footprint, allowing more natural flex underfoot, again adding to the chilled-out ride. A great entry level binding, or for those on a budget who want a binding with minimum hassle.
