Here at Flow we are all passionate snowboarders, at all levels of ability and each of us loves different aspects of snowboarding. But we all want a snowboard that feels like an extension of ourselves, a board that gives us the confidence to ride like the wind and smile at the mountain. We know that you are looking for the same experience. So we have built a great line of boards, catering to different levels or riders, and different styles of riding. Most our boards are very all-around, and we have a few quiver fillers for those extra special days. Find out the love we put into shaping and designing our boards, for the shared love of riding.
Kush Control Technology
The ALL NEW Flow KUSH-CONTROL TECHNOLOGY consists of 3 unique urethane features strategically placed in the base, sidewall and topsheet to create the smoothest and strongest snowboards available on the hill. Urethane is flexible and highly resistant to impacts in extremely cold temperatures. Urethane is also utilized due to its superior bonding properties and can withstand the abuse that a snowboard endures. The dampening properties of urethane act like skateboard wheels and provide you the smoothest ride possible.
The urethane base inserts are positioned between the woodcore and base material. These inserts allow Flow boards to adapt to any terrain, absorb impacts, reduce chatter and provide a smoother, more stable riding snowboard.
One piece Urethane sidewall, fused directly to the woodcore to reduce vibration, absorbs impacts, increases edge hold and creates a stronger smoother riding snowboard.
Urethane inserts placed under the toe and heel areas reduce chatter, absorb impacts, increase edge hold and provide the smoothest riding snowboard.
Kush-Control Plus consists of specifically formulated urethane compounds utilized in the sidewall, topsheet and base. The 93A durometer urethane sidewall is fused directly to the woodcore to provide stability and a smooth ride. Flow uses a standard thickness 85A urethane for the topsheet and base inserts to add flexibility, absorb small to large impacts and increase the durability of Flow boards.
Kush-Control Premium consists of specifically formulated urethane compounds utilized in the sidewall, topsheet and base. The denser 98A durometer urethane sidewall is fused directly to the woodcore to provide more pop and control while maximizing edge hold. Flow uses a thicker and softer 75A urethane for the topsheet and base inserts to add flexibility, absorb chatter, cushion impacts and increase the durability of Flow boards.
Our Per4mance Guarantee
At Flow we stand behind the quality of our boards. Flow now offers a 4 Year Per4mance Guarantee. This is an industry first, underlining how much we back the quality of our snowboards. Flow Limited Warranty warrants that Flow Snowboards, when purchased from an authorized Flow dealer by a retail customer, WILL BE FREE FROM DEFECTS IN MATERIALS AND WORKMANSHIP for a period of four (4) years (Per4mance Guarantee program) from the date of purchase by the original retail customer.
A board profile is the bend from tip to tail. Different profiles dictate the type of performance you can expect out of each board. Flow offers a diverse range of profiles, from the easy going rocker shape to the aggressive, more traditional camber shape.
Our woodcores are selected for their liveliness, weight to strength ratio and overall feel. Computer aided machines allow us to profile our woodcores to an exact thickness throughout the board, giving you increased pop for better ollies and stability while riding in any snow condition.
All-new this season is our Pop-Lite woodcore, our lightest, strongest and most responsive core to date. Formulated with a blend of extremely light and strong poplar and a microcellular poly-urethane foam. This specifically developed core, featured in the Maverick and Darwin, results in a super-light blend that delivers all the pop, dampens vibrations and maximizes your board's feel.
Our Re-Flex core is a lively and responsive woodcore, with a very optimal strength-to-weight ratio. This specifically profiled core fuses several species of poplar woods together resulting in a more stable, super-light and snappy feel.
The Tru-Flex core has a high strength-to-weight ratio by utilizing poplar wood, uniquely profiled to give you excellent all-around response and edge-hold in any condition.
Carbon stringers are used to create and control the longitudinal and torsional flex of our snowboards. By adding these stringers to our boards we create stiffer flex patterns you can count on while riding. Your riding preference will determine which style of carbon stringer will work best for you.
Flow Power-Beams are integrated into our boards to add torsional response. The Power-Beams are thin layers of the finest bamboo that are milled and laminated into the woodcore. These beams help the board hold its edge and give the rider more power and control. Reducing torsional flex gives the board a smoother ride at any speed. Feel the power of Flow Power-Beams.
A snowboard boot is the one piece of your equipment that is closest to your body, and a crucial element in your overall snowboarding experience. With boots being such a personal item, we take a personal interest and incredible pride in making the best fitting boots that support your snowboard adventures. Building a snowboard boot is an art form; our boots are handcrafted and molded around a lasting shape, and we engineer the outsoles and closure systems to fit perfectly with the anatomy of the human foot. Take a look at all the thought and details that go into a Flow boot, or better yet, try one on and feel for yourself.
The lasts are anatomically shaped molds to mimic the human foot, the lasts are what give our outer boots and inner liners its superior fit characteristics. Flow boots are made to fit better so you can ride more comfortably, longer.
Snowboard boots are not your average shoes. Boots get exposed to the extreme elements of nature and should keep your feet comfortable and protected during icy cold days, riding slushy wet snow or long hikes to find bottomless powder.
Silvadur™ is an antimicrobial material that regulates temperature and avoids funky smelling snowboard boots.
SpaceBlanket is a thermal insulating barrier between the outsole and the liner, which keeps the heat inside and the cold outside.
3D Molded Toe-box
Eliminates extra layers and seams around the tip of the boot and creates a durable streamlined design with less bulk and better fit.
3D Molded Tongue
Our 3-D molded and lasted tongues are anatomically correct to provide less bulk and true natural flex and support without boot distortion.
BareFoot Technology is a combination of our Vibram® outsole and our OC-Kush dampening system. B.F.T. is put in place to ensure that your feet will be happy and comfortable all day, everyday. BareFoot Technology supports, dampens and conforms without getting in the way of your foot’s natural movement. It harnesses the force of your momentum and seamlessly transfers power to your board. B.F.T. is an extension of your own leg.

Flow bindings are designed unlike any other binding. We wanted our bindings to be the most comfortable, performance driven, but easy to use bindings on the hill. Because we believe snowboarding should be fun, we don’t like sitting down in the snow, and we expect more from a binding than just holding the boot down on the board. The result is a binding which is engineered to give you a better day on the hill simply by being the most comfortable binding, giving you more power and control over your snowboard so that making turns and doing tricks is easier than ever. On top of it all, our bindings are super easy to use. This is the essence of every Flow binding.
