New for the ladies this season are the Flow Mayon snowboard bindings. This is an extremely comfortable all-mountain binding, and with Flow’s effortless entry level system you can simply slide into these beauties. We’re stoked that brands keep on extending their female binding range, and even happier that Flow’s already got quite a few female specific examples in their range.

The Mayon is here to help you to take your riding to the next level. This soft and supportive newbie is a forgiving binding, making it ideal for jibbers and beginners. The asymmetrical highbacks are constructed with glass-filled Nylon, making them the comfortable and strong bindings they are. Add the axis baseplate and you know you can rely on these to give you great response too.

Keeping it pleasant for the eyes too, these beauties come in a colour range of three simple colours – a classic black, an always pleasing platinum grey, and a fresh aqua green. In addition to the colours, the design itself has also been kept clean and simple. Less is more, and the guys over at FLOW know it.

Bear in mind that the FLOW bindings have a different entry system than your usual strap in ones. It may or may not be your thing, but you’ll never know if you don’t give it ago.

Tester’s Verdict

Stella PenttiWhitelines

“I have to admit I’ve had my doubts about the Flow bindings. Something about the rear-entry system has just not left me feeling overly confident in the safety of the bindings, but then again, doesn’t one always struggle to trust things that are unfamiliar.

“The strapping in, or whatever you’re meant to call it with these, was ridiculously easy and fast – loved it!”

I’m ashamed to admit that this was my first season to step into a pair of Flow bindings, but I’m happy I finally overcame my fear of the unknown. The strapping in, or whatever you’re meant to call it with these, was ridiculously easy and fast – loved it!

The conditions for trying out something unknown weren’t ideal though. The pistes were partly icy, it was snowing, and you couldn’t see shit – a great day all in all. But I made my way down, and up again, and down, continuing to enjoy riding the Mayon’s to the point that I actually forgot they were any different to “normal” bindings.

It might have been the bad weather conditions, or just in my head, but I didn’t feel the binding to be as secure as my normal go-to-bindings. However, I like my bindings to be a bit more on the stiff side to give my riding a bit more aggression, so it might have just been a case of a too soft flex.

I do however think the Flow Mayon’s would make a great choice for the ladies out there who are just beginning to snowboard, or the ones who are looking to take their riding to the next level.”
