Best Rear Entry Binding
Flow Fenix

Since Flow is the authority in rear-entry binding systems thus far, the Fenix makes our list as a great speed-entry (hybrid) binding option. Flow’s active strap technology allows the foot strap to move up slightly when the highback is opened, to allow the foot to slide in without having to loosen the straps first

What’s pretty nice is the ability to use the straps as you would a regular binding is still there, in case you’re feeling nostalgic.

All new lightweight Fusion ExoFrame PowerStraps combined with a high-tensile steel cable provide optimal power transfer to the board for improved response and control. These bindings also feature an asymmetrical baseplate with a slightly rockered design, which allows for a more natural, medium flex and ease of use.
