The Flux PR15 (Formerly the Premium) binding is one of the best beginner bindings out there. This sits in the same category as the Burton Freestyle and Rome Shift as one of our best choices for low budget or beginner riders. The premium doesn’t offer a different design. This is the same design as the higer end bindings except it doesn’t have the tech and performance. This is ideal for a beginner because you don’t really know what your doing enough to appreciate the higher tech. You just want something predictable to help you learn to make good turns and that doesn’t fall apart.
The 2011 and 2010 are pretty similar except for a slightly better toe strap. The 2012 has a new high back but the performance is still pretty much the same. Not much has changed in 2013 and all years are good choices.
