2016 Flow Fuse GT Binding Overview
Hi there, welcome to the Morning Shred, brought to you by snowboards.com. I'm Jenna, this is Tim from Flow and we're going to talk about the Flow Fuse GT binding. Tim, tell us a little bit about this binding. Yeah, the Fuse GT is the top of the line in our composite bindings, meaning that it has a fiberglass reenforced base plate that gives a little, flexes with the board a little. But here, you step up to the aluminum heel cup and it's a three-piece highback that can be adjusted up or down, in or out, with the active strap technology, meaning that the strap actually opens up as you lower the highback making it easier to get in and out of the binding - in particular, when it's brand new.
Here we've stepped up the strap as well, it's going to be nice and stiff, it's going to take a couple days to take on the shape of your boot. Also, it's going to take a couple days for the boot to conform to the strap, so active strap technology makes it a lot easier to get in and out of. It also features a two and a half degree beveled baseplate that has what we call OC Kush, or suspension built into the bottom or gel, and the ratchet buckles that lock into place or what we call set it and forget it because once this strap does take on the shape of your boot, you want to just lock these so that it's consistent every single run - and that's all you have to do. Just slide your foot in and go. And you do have the option of both the hybrid strap or the fusion strap, right? Absolutely, here I'm showing the fusion strap, the hybrid strap is more of a toe-cap design that for those people that are coming from a toe-cap in the past - traditional strap binding - and that one you can open this way as well if you choose.
Ok. Well make sure you check out the Fuse GT on snowboards.com and thanks for watching the Morning Shred.
