2015 Flux RL Cafe Racer Snowboard Bindings
Streamlined for lightweight freestyle performance, the Flux RL Cafe Racer Snowboard Binding delivers the easy-flexing feel needed to tear up the park. As part of Flux's Heritage Collection, the RL Cafe Racer Binding is decked in a souped-up paint job for special edition appeal; otherwise, it offers the same freestyle performance as the regular Flux RL Binding. Cored-out for maximum weight savings and tons of lateral flex, the binding's Ultima Freestyle highback gives you the full freestyle mobility for tweaking out grabs and pressing down handrails. This highback is constructed from super-tough nylon to withstand regular park abuse and street thrashings. Additionally, you'll find its padded toe and heel cushions absorb impact without inhibiting board feel, making the RL Cafe Racer a great choice for those who prefer a skate-like feel on the slopes. Conforming to your boot for blissful comfort, the binding's F-Tech 3D ankle strap conforms to the shape of your boot to eliminate pressure points. New for this year, Flux re-designed their FTM Versa toe strap to accommodate over-the-tip and over-the-top wear, for those who prefer a more traditional feel. Another cool innovation comes in the way of a urethane mounting disc. This 4-hole disc (Channel disc available from Flux) flexes
underfoot, helping to reduce the 'dead spot' inherent with stiff mounting discs.
