Who are the Lexs Most Suited To?
The Lexa are best suited to anyone looking for a comfortable, quality binding that can do a bit of everything, anywhere - whether you want to carve up groomers, venture into some powder, trees, sidehits or take laps through the park. And that doesn't break the bank, too much - especially for the quality that you get.
Best matched to boards in the 5/10 to 6/10 flex range. But work for 4/10 and 7/10 flexing boards as well.

A really good balance between being good for leaning into aggressive carves, but also being good for sharp turns at slower speeds.
Really good board feel. The Re:Flex baseplate really helps there - and this allows you to feel the board for butters/presses and just generally feeling the flex of the board better.
Heel Cup: No
Stance Width: Pretty limited. No real micro adjustments with the Re:Flex disc - you're limited to adjusting a full insert hole out or in (except when on the channel, of course).
Highback Lean: Yes and tool-less
Ankle Strap Position: Yes - 3 different poisitions
Toe Strap Position: Yes - 2 different poisions
Ankle and toe strap length: Tool-less
Gas pedal/toe ramp extension: Yes - extends footbed length from 21.5cm (8.5") to 23cm (9.1")
Highback Rotation: Yes
Compatible with: 2 x 4 | 4 x 4 | The Channel
Really good for absorbing chatter and shock from flat landings etc. Nice and spongy in the toe and heel areas.
The ratchets on the Lexa are really smooth, making them easy to strap in and unstrap. They also have the Flex Slider tech which allows the ankle strap to open right out when you're getting your boot on - so there's less chance for standing on it.
Let’s Break up this text with a Video
The Lexa comes up at around 2:31
Really comfortable overall.
Ankle Strap: No pressure points and strap conforms nicely to boot.
Toe Strap: Ditto ankle strap.
Canted Footbed: No
Highback: Good bit of padding in the highback. But most importantly, Jade hasn't ever experienced any calf bite.
Really decent - and these are kept in the middle position. The ankle strap has 3 different positions. You could move the ankle strap to the higher position to get even more ankle support - or you could move it to the lower position for a more surfy, but less supported feel.
Score Breakdown and Final Verdict

TOTAL after normalizing
The Lexa Re:Flex are really reliable, versatile all round bindings that have no major weaknesses. A solid choice for a number of different boards and at a good price for what you get, IMO.
Biggest downside is the stance width adjustability, but other than that it really is hard to go wrong with the Lexa, if they're a good match to your board and your riding style.
