Flow is the originator of the reclining hiback binding. Since it’s beginnings in 1995, Flow has been the leader in sales of this technology and now is currently the #2 binding in sales in the World.  Over the past ten years, in addition to perfecting the reclining hiback, Flow introduced its own line of boots and boards, “Triple Threat Technology ”. This system of boots, boards, and bindings is designed to heighten ease of use and control when used together. The Flow Team helped prove this by winning the 2006 Transworld Team Challenge, including best overall rider (Scotty Lago) and best halfpipe rider (Antti Autti).
