Tackles everything from powder to ice
The Freeride was developed to tackle any kind of snow and terrain you might find in the backcountry.
The combination of high-speed stability, maneuverability and catch-free properties has made the Freeride one of the most talked about snowboards of the past few years. Its long sidecut radius makes the snowboard calm and forgiving, while the rocker and reverse sidecut in nose and tail makes it float remarkably well in powder and remain catch free.
Long turning radius
It is standard to use a longer turning radius on a freeride ski than on a slalom ski in the skiing industry; however, Furberg Snowboards is the only brand to adapt the turning radius for freeride snowboards. A longer turning radius generates better stability at higher speeds and, more importantly, gives the boards a calmer and more forgiving behavior by distributing the edge pressure over the entire contact length.
The best compromise between the flotation of full rocker, responsiveness, and grip of camber.For maximum flotation without loosing responsiveness and grip.
Long Rocker and Reverse Sidecut radiuses
When a board is ridden flat on the snow, a long rocker transition will make the nose of the board impact irregularities with a low angle of incidence and slide over with little resistance. Many snowboard brands are aware of this, but only we have combined the rocker with a reverse sidecut in nose and tail to maintain this low angle of incidence when riding the board on edge.
The long transitions of the reverse sidecut make the board turn more effortlessly since the typical pressure points at the end of the effective edge do not exist. The overall result is a very catch-free and surfy board.
Long and high nose
Increases flotation and makes the board slide over irregularities in the snowpack with less resistance. The very last part of the nose also has a slightly steeper angle to make touring with our splitboards easier.
