Copy about FLUX

FLUX was born in 1992 with the concept of "the best binding that fits Japanese feet."

The result of the pursuit of manufacturing that satisfies Japanese customers is the world's highest level of quality.

This includes feedback from many riders, both from Japan and abroad, past and present.

In Japan, the names include Abe Mikihiro, Yoshida Naohiro, Tahara Raio Katsuya, Yamazaki Yuuki, Nakai Koji, Kasahara Keijiro, Seki Isao, and Hasegawa Atsushi.

Internationally, Jamie Lynn, Blaze Rosenthal, Matt Hammer, Romain De Marti, JP Solberg and John Jackson.

On the journey from the 1st Model to the XF, there was feedback from many riders, and many original ideas and technologies, too numerous to mention here.

Thanks to this world-class quality and technology, the company is now expanding not only in Japan but also in 21 countries around the world.

But this is just a passing point.

To take our bindings and newly added boots to new heights,

FLUX has already begun its journey towards its next 30th and 40th anniversaries.

Previous logos

1st. Logo 1993-1998

The original logo was in lowercase.

At the time, there were no small bindings that fit Japanese feet, so development of the first model began. The logo symbolizes the dawn of trial and error, with aluminum bases, heel cup-less bases, and two high backs. If you're a snowboard geek, you know that the name was changed to "Sector Flux Bindings" at one point.

2nd. Logo 1999-2001

Although this was the logo that was used for the shortest period of time, it also helped lay the foundation for what is now FLUX.

In the midst of the snowboarding bubble, the model "PREMIUM", created mainly by Rio Tahara, took the industry by storm, and in 1999 Jamie Lynn joined the team, giving it a foothold on the world stage. The functions that were created when "PREMIUM" was born are still used today, and the model name has been changed to "PR" and is loved by many people all over the world. The wing highback currently used by GT was also released in 2000 under the name "Hane".

3rd. Logo 2002 - 2005

It's the 10th anniversary of the brand's founding, and we're starting to see an increase in design variety, which is a hallmark of FLUX.

In particular, the "VIPER" released in 2003 was the world's first all-over pattern binding made using water transfer printing.

It was during this period that the boots CROSS FIVE were born as a separate brand. The name was said to have been inspired by the car our boss was driving at the time.

4th. Logo 2006 - 2010

This was the only logo to use cursive writing, and the model and initiatives used were very unique.

There were many features and services that would be interesting to revive today, such as UNION (later renamed EXP), a two-piece aluminum and nylon structure, the birth of a urethane high back that boasted unprecedented softness, and FCCS, which allows users to rearrange the colors of the parts.

5th. Logo 2011 - 2022

This logo, which is probably the most familiar to you, has been with FLUX for 11 years.

Today's essential features are all here, such as weight reduction and injection molding instead of sewn straps. After 10 years, BOOTS changed its name to FLUX and began selling snowboards, becoming a total footwear brand.

Looking back at the previous logos, I feel a strong sense of product evolution. When this new logo changes over time to the next logo, what kind of product evolution will we be able to look back on? We will continue to evolve in order to be a brand that continues to support your best snowboarding life, so please continue to look forward to FLUX!
