F2's S-Flex system - Worthwhile for 15/16 yr. old racer starting FIS?

Hi All:

We know about the Henkel plates, etc. Concept being that the bindings are isolated from the board, allowing better board flex and thereby better performance.

But these plates add substantial weight and significant additional height. So we understand that they are generally only suitable for somewhat heaver and/or aggressive racers. Not the best for women or teenagers.

However, we have learned of a system made by F2: the S-Flex system. It is apparently much lighter.

In any event, our attitude toward gear is that we buy what is suitable to ones experience and skill level.

So ... if this F2 system will be of substantial benefit (ie really help and not hinder), then we would consider it. Gear does evolve and if this is the next evolution, we'll consider it. But if its just another tech toy, or my son is really not ready for it, we'll pass.

Does anyone have any experience riding or racing this system? Is there anyone in the eastern Canada area (or might be going to the Quebec FIS race) that has a pair? We would like to see and test it.

Thanks all

Best

Julian

Hello Julian ! Yes , Chris is right ! Please contact www.yyzcanuck.com ! They will inform you about everything ! But from my experiens i can tell you that it works for sure same good for Boy, Girls and Teens !!! You have to now that the inventor form the Silent Flex system was also the inventor from the Plate witch is known in the Snowboard Market under the Name "Hangel System".

Silent Flex is just without all the negativ characteristic buildet !

Witch are: Haevey Weight

difficult to mounting

no sock absorbing

danger of injuring for most of the Race Boards

it can overload the boards ore the bones in extrem situations

May be you are lucky and the plate comes off the Board !

ore the Board could brake ! :rolleyes: ore the bone :cool:

i saw all three off this situations with my eys !

But please contact this Shop and soon your Boy will have a benefit !

I swear !

Sorry for my bad English !!!

regards Christian

If you want to be serious you should get hangles. I doesnt matter that the are to heavy. I weigh 135 and i am on hagles and they are amazing. I dont know what these S Flex things are. But by looking at the pictures of the i think they are junk you are better off getting the swiss girl plates if you are worried about heavy. But all of the racerscompalain about the hangles being to heavy but i dont care i like the weight you can turn more smoothly.
