North Flex Bindings 2022
Strap in for the ride of your life
Engineered for connection, comfort and performance, our Flex Bindings give you a locked-in feel and solid support. Extremely soft KnitFlex straps are fully adjustable, conforming to your whole foot with no stitching or bunching. Triple-density rubberized EVA footbeds provide lightweight cushioning and maintain grip underfoot when wet. Super quick three-point connection setup ensures a customised fit, and split inner velcro straps ensure maximum comfort for all foot shapes, sizes and rider styles. In 2022 we've further refined the Flex Bindings to provide an even more secure comfort-fit with increased lateral support.
Precision velcro straps reduce water lift
Injection velcro decreases sand retention and extended top flaps increase hold and reduce water lift. The split inner-velcro design ensures a custom fit on top of the feet for all shapes, sizes and rider styles. Position the velcro straps wider apart for a more fixed feel, closer together for easy board-offs.
Standardised M6 stance adjustment system
Our six-point connection system uses standardised M6x16mm screw hardware to fasten the binding to the board in various positions with easy stance adjustment to suit all riders. Move your bindings backwards (heelside) or forwards (toeside), set the position for a wide or narrow stance, and change your duck stance. The oval hole allows for both 6"- 6.5" industry standard screw spacings.
Two Size Options
A good starting point would be Men's US 9 (EU42.5) and above for binding size M/L but we highly recommend trying before purchase to guarantee the best fit. We have found the fit has more to do with the shape and angle of your upper foot than the foot length.
KnitFlex seamless comfort and support
Our unique seamless KnitFlex inners are engineered for topside comfort and support. The Knitflex fabric is pre-tensioned and laminated to the conforming foam inner, so it can create a 3D-curve without any bunching or creasing, and there's no inner stitching to rub on your foot. The soft inner foam allows your foot to shuffle more easily into a locked-in position.
NEW Adjustable top-loading footstrap
For quick setup and a perfect fit for all sizes. Our fully re-engineered top flap gives a strong hold without compromising strap flexibility. The Flex Adjusters allow comfortable foot positioning, a secure feel and use of the toe bar. Simply drop the inner and outer Flex Adjusters into the baseplate from the top, move forward or backward then pull up into your desired position. For a more locked-in feeling set the inner two Flex Adjusters further apart. The rear eyelets have an outward kick to ensure your foot never comes in contact with the edge of the eyelet on hard landings.
NEW Impact resistant triple-density GripFlex footbeds
Lightweight, rubberized EVA provides soft cushioning and maintains grip underfoot when wet, while the finer grip pattern helps keep your foot locked in on various angles. The ramped toe bar has been engineered with a more angled tactile edge to get purchase on and prevent your foot from slipping out during high rotation tricks. High-density impact pads protect the heel from board contact on big landings, and are dual-moulded with a medium-density layer for serious impact protection. Another softer insert provides strategically-placed comfort under the ball of the foot.
NEW Increased lateral support
The footpad is ergonomically angled to encourage optimised weight distribution and knee alignment, helping to minimise common rider injuries. Outer angled heel inserts give increased lateral support.
