Goofy or Regular?

First of all you need to know which foot you should have in front when riding. As a rule, your dominant leg should be in front. If your left foot is in front it is called "Regular" and if your right foot is in front it is called "goofy". There is an easy way’s to find out which is your dominant leg (If you are riding Regular or Goofy);

Ask a friend, wife, husband or a next-door neighbour to stand behind you, and then gently push you forward. - The leg you make your first step forward with is usually the dominant leg. If you want to find out by yourself you can simply run and slide along a smooth surface. Your reflex will put your dominant leg in front.

Stance

Stance

This is all down to personal preference and where on the mountain you are going to spend the most time. When you stand on your board, your feet will be spread apart. A narrower stance helps the board carve a turn better, while a wider stance will give you better stability.

Riding powder? Set them back and you will increase the length of the nose of your snowboard, which will give it float in the pow.

Playing in the park? Centre the bindings if you are planning to ride park, pipe and rails. It is a lot easier to jump and ride switch (backwards) when the bindings are centred.

Doing a little bit of everything? Set them back one step.

How wide / narrow should they be?

Step onto the board (Without bindings attached) as you would go riding. If it feels good and natural, this is where you should mount your bindings. If you can't decide then you can do it roughly as far part as your shoulders.

In the end it is all down to comfort and choice. Do not be afraid to change your stance and play around with it. There are many tool stations on the slopes where you can change your bindings. All you need is a screwdriver. You will soon find what is best for you and your riding style. Most snowboards all ready come with a recommended stance marked on the board.

What are your angles?

Angles

The most common and possibly the most versatile one is what is some times refered to as duck. The front binding registers a positive angle while the back is set to a negative. This will allow you to ride switch and regular with equal ease and delivers a stable comfortable stance.

If you are just blasting down the mountain and not even thinking about riding switch then you might prefer positive angle on both front and back foot.

Here are some angles you can try:

Freestyle: Front foot +15 with back foot -15

All Mountain: Front foot +18 with back foot -9

Freeride: Front foot +21 with back foot 0

Forward Lean

Most riders do not bother using this feature. Forward lean describes the angle at which a binding's highback is set. The Highback is there to transfer power to heel edge of the board and the greater the angle, or forward lean, on the highback the greater the responsiveness delivered to the heal edge.

If you are a beginner, I would not worry about this too much for the moment. It is down to personal preference and something you can play around with as you progress. Some instructors use this as a tool to help riders bend their knees.

Fit

Make sure your boot size is compatible with the binding size you choose. At the board basement you can select your boot size to find the binding size that is right for you, using our filters.

Entry system

Most bindings are traditional Two-strap bindings, with an ankle strap and a toe-cap strap.

Flow Bindings and SP Bindings have a reclining highback which means you can enter the bindings from behind with ease. These are referred to as Fast Entry bindings.

Flow NX2 Hybrid Snowboard Bindings 2017

The NX2 is Flows top binding with the exception of the NX2 -GT. This NX2 comes in 2 variations this is the Hybrid PowerCapStrap version with a softer flex. The Hybrid version has got a feel of a conventional 2 -Strap Side Entry and the convenience and ease. The toe-cap fits snug onto the toe of the boot and delivers a perfect fit every time. The NX2 uses the aluminum chassis for lightweight response on a stiffer platform for hard charging riders who want to go everywhere on the mountain from steep and deep powder to cruising pistes. The NX2 of course comes with all the nice features you come to expect from flow like locking slap ratchets so you can use as a side entry binding or classic flow reclining highback system. These ratchets lock in place with a click so you can setup your bindings to your boots the not worry about it for the rest of the time and just use the reclining highback. On the NX2 Flow also use their new NASTY (new, active, strap, technology) system so when the highback drops the strap moves forward and out of the way to give a bigger, easier area to put our foot into for faster step in use. The footbeds are canted EVA foam for a nice comfy feel which will absorb shocks and vibrations really well especially when combined with the OC kush layer of silicone plastic which Flow use to sit between the binding and the board. These footbeds are 2.5 degree canted for a more natural stance on your board without stress on the knees. The NX2 is top end and dominates!
