This deck provides the little ones with nearly no edge catches, smooth-through turns and the ability to excel fast and have one heck of a blast! Th…

Quality Little Unit

5out of 5

Pros: Smooth Stability, Lightweight, Well Balanced, Tough

Best Uses: Freeriding, Powder, Speed, All Mountain, Tricks, Park

Describe Yourself: Advanced

Was this a gift?: Yes

I got this unit based on price and size. I seems to fit my smaller 5 year old very well and was light enough that he could jump around without getting too tired. It is a bit on the stiffer side, but that is to be expected from such a small stick.

My Review of Flow Micron Snowboard Bindings – Kid’s 2014

Start the grom out right with the Flow Micron Snowboard Bindings. With the original reclining hiback, the Micron lets the grom quickly get in and out of the binding while power straps give great support and a secure fit. For the perfect binding for your pint-sized ripper, pick up the Flow Micron bi…

Pros: Installs Easily, Easy Entry & Release, Great Construction, Comfortable, Good Interface, Adjustable, Lightweight

Best Uses: Downhill, Powder, Freeriding, Tricks, All Mountain

Describe Yourself: Advanced

Was this a gift?: Yes

I got these bindings for my 5 year old who is somewhat small in stature. The design of these are pretty standard for Flow Bindings. Basically there is nothing tricky about them because they are designed for smaller riders who will likely grow out of them in a year or two. That being said My 5 year old was able to quickly and easily get in and out of these which is pretty much all I can ask for out of a smaller piece of hardware.

Pros: Good Flexibility, Fast, Tough, Carving Ability, Lightweight, Well Balanced, Smooth Stability, Lots Of Pop

First ride on this was fantastic. I’ve ridden a variety of styles and shapes of sticks in the past and this one seemed to be perfectly balanced for my style. Overall the core and tip innovations made this unit maneuverable and easy to control. While it is defiantly light it feels to have great strength.

My Review of Flow Fuse-RS Snowboard Bindings 2014

Fuse RS

2013 Flow Fuse RS

Originally submitted at evo

The Flow Fuse-RS Snowboard Bindings are Flow’s premiere all-mountain binding that combine the feel of a molded Nylon baseplate with the support of the molded Nylon heelcup and ModBack hiback. This results in a moderately stiff binding with a snappy response, but the EVO.8 SupportPanel brings in eno…

Got some kinks

4out of 5

Pros: Good Interface, Adjustable, Lightweight, Comfortable

Cons: Difficult Entry & Release

Best Uses: Tricks, Speed, Park, Freeriding, All Mountain, Half Pipe

Describe Yourself: Advanced

Was this a gift?: No

Overall this is a good improvement with the Flow products. I do like that the entire face of the unit slides up when releasing. As a downfall however, the lever in the back seemed to get stuck making it a little more difficult than needed to release. Additionally they seemed a bit narrow on my pair of 32 boots, but were a perfect fit for my slimmer Sims boots.
