The Flux TT30 is their Burton Cartel and it is made to fit the widest scope of riders. These bindings are good for giving you a lot of freedom while still being super comfortable and responsive in a smooth kind of way. They perform well just about anywhere but you see these mostly in the park. Their semi mellow do anything response performs very well with easy to turn reverse camber snowboards as well as soft to medium flexing camber boards.

Flux TT30 In Depth Review
Riders- James, Jimbo, Peter, Kyle, Mary, Ginger, and a few others.
We were able to get about 20+ days on these bindings and were rather impressed with its smooth cruising ride. The Flux TT30 bindings will work well in just about any all mountain or freestyle set up. Many bindings in the line have made some big changes that affected performance.
2013 Flux TT30 Overview
For 2011 Flux changed the name from the Titan to the TT30 but the ride is very similar. The Toe strap was changed from an over the toe specific to a hybrid but that is about it. For 2012 the TT30 lost some weight and they added a new base plate that is similar to the high end binding base plates of old. There is also new toe straps that are lighter. The 2013 TT30 lost even more weight.
Flex- The high back’s shape hasn’t changed over the last three years but the flex has changed a little. It’s not enough to notice but maybe the more discerning rider can tell the difference.
Adjustability- Everything is tweakable just about any way except for the high back. You can’t line up the backs with the rail of your board at anything more than 12/-12 degrees. Everything else is tooless which is quite a plus. You can also adjust the back part of the plate as well as the front.
Comfort- These bindings make everything comfortable. At first look the design of the toe and ankle strap seem to be a step behind burton design wise. Upon looking closer its very much their own thing. Its probably the best fitting toe trap and ankle strap. The base plate and back line up well with the boot to eliminate any pressure points.
Response- We felt all years to be very mellow but they all react well if you put effort into a turn or jib. The toe and heel side turning is very similar so you get a very consistent feel when transitioning from edge to edge. There are many bindings that don’t have this feeling. We are very impressed with the smooth feel it has and that is why you see so many of these bindings in the park. There is a decent improvement with the response of the 2012 over the 2011 and 2010 models. Maybe it’s just in our head because the binding is lighter or maybe that makes a difference. We don’t know but can say that the 2012 is a little more responsive.
Weight- Before 2012 the bindings were light but closer to the medium side of light. Now they are right in the middle of the light category.
Dampening and Shock Absorption- This is a step below the SF45 and has a more all mountain feel. Other companies are introducing gel padding and dense foam on the heel. Some are using a combination of rubber-like heel base connected to fiberglass, foam or Gel that makes for an incredibly smooth ride at high speed. It also helps landings. These don’t have more than a few millimeters of foam. It makes you wonder how they would react to a bad landing of a big kicker. We didn’t go big so we wouldn’t know but we did notice a little less love on the landings. If you are young you won’t care but if you are looking to ride into your 40′s and 50′s like we are then you might want to consider something else. If you aren’t going big then they will be fine. Not much has happened here from 2010 to 2012 and we’d like to see this change in the future.
Board/ Boot Integration- All an all the Flux TT30 bindings will do well assimilating the board and boot into one park friendly ride. If soft smooth and playful is your thing then this is your binding.
