Micro Adjuster

Do you think that SR and DS do not allow the high back to lean forward?

All FLUX models feature a micro adjuster that allows you to adjust the forward tilt of the highback.

Some models in the FLUX lineup do not have a forward lean adjuster on the back of the highback , like the SR and DS.

These models are designed for skiers who do not need to adjust the forward lean for powder, park, jibs, or freestyle tricks, or for skiers who are just starting out and do not place much importance on adjustment features, so we did not attach any forward lean adjustments for the sake of weight reduction.

However, this does not mean that you cannot adjust the highback's forward tilt at all .

Of course, even those who do powder, park, jibs, or freestyle tricks will want to lean forward to improve response.

Even if you are a beginner, you may find that after using the chair you feel it is not quite enough and want to lean it forward, and the staff at the store will adjust it for you from the beginning.

To meet such demands , all FLUX models feature a feature called a "micro adjuster."

This means that even models that do not have an adjuster on the back of the highback can be adjusted forward tilt in three stages, up to a maximum of 12 degrees .

This function allows you to adjust the forward tilt of the highback by adjusting the screws that attach the highback to the base plate.

If you look at the back, you will see that the screw installation positions are marked with [1 2 3] as shown above.

This is attached to 1 at the time of shipment .

This is the forward tilt position at 0 degrees (although the exact initial setting varies depending on the model).

When you stand, you can stand straight without bending your knees, so you won't get tired easily and you can maintain a comfortable position .

Also, gaps are likely to form between the highback and the boots, which is like having some play in the steering wheel of a car, but the stability and maneuverability at low to medium speeds are excellent, just like that of passenger cars running on public roads.

I think many people looking for a powder or surfing-like ride will also prefer this board as it doesn't require steep edging.

This is a recommended condition for beginners, as even if you wobble a little, the edge won't be caught immediately.

If installed in position 2, the seat will tilt forward by approximately 6 degrees .

At position 3 it is approximately 12 degrees .

The angle of forward lean depends on personal preference and compatibility with boots, etc., so it is difficult to say how much is best, but it generally improves response when turning.

Since the gap between the boot and the highback is reduced, you can make sharper turns.

Like the steering wheel of a race car, which has little play, it has excellent stability and maneuverability at medium to high speeds.

Even if you are looking for a softer ride like DS or SR, or if you are looking for more speed or sharper glide, or want to fly off big kickers or improve your carving performance, you may be able to find your favorite settings by adjusting and trying them out.

When adjusted using the adjuster attached to the back of the highback, one notch gives approximately 2.5 degrees, so in comparison this is a much simpler adjustment range.

However, by combining the adjuster on the back with the micro adjuster, more precise forward tilt adjustment is possible .

Furthermore, the micro adjuster allows you to adjust not only the forward tilt but also the torsion of the highback.

I hope to find another opportunity to introduce this to you.
