Flux XF 2017 Review by The Good Ride

The Flux XF Snowboard Binding is great in terms of fit, support and response but it comes with almost no shock absorption.  For us no shock absorption is the deal breaker because it’s hard on joints from young to old but if you are ok with that then the rest of the binding is really well done.

I had some Rome 390 bindings; they were bulletproof, but I was frustrated by how heavy and hard to adjust they are. Went to Union Contact Pros for lightness, but they felt super cheap and flimsy, and I gave up on Union. Since then, I have been a Burton binding guy, using the Cartel and Genesis models. Near the end of last season, picked up a set of Flux XF on sale, because I'd heard good things from some really good riders. I thought of Flux as some small player, and I'd never even considered Flux before.

I'm so glad I made the leap. The Flux are much more solid and responsive than either of my Burton bindings. The toe strap is a superior design that really holds the boot better, and the ratchets are bulletproof and allow you to really crank down—both of which made my old boots feel new. Even the ankle strap performs better due to the stronger ratchet, although the shape and material appear very similar to Burton's rubber webbing. It was really a night and day difference, in the best way. My board simply felt and worked better.

The Good Ride's review is spot-on about the XF not being super cushiony, but my boots are good so that's never been an issue. (Also, I live in BC where we're pretty blessed with soft snow; might be different if you deal with harder stuff.)

I've tried a lot of brands, and these are the best bindings I've used so far. If you want to be locked in and like a responsive ride, demo or just go buy the XF. Give Flux a try either way—I am very pleasantly surprised by their design and quality.
