Freeride boards. Now freeride boards are
0:14
a little bit more asymmetrical whereas
0:16
free style boards their twin
0:20
tip a free ride board can be directional
0:25
meaning bindings are set back or
0:27
asymmetrical the the sidecut
0:30
doesn’t start going back right up in the
0:32
center it’s set back a little bit so an
0:35
asymmetrical board can be fatter nose
0:38
and then taper down like that so a more
0:40
narrow tail and then also the Flex can
0:44
be asymmetrical meaning that it’s a
0:47
little softer up in the front and
0:48
stiffer at the tail and this really
0:51
helps riders get through all types of
0:54
crud and powder and kind of float up on
0:56
top of it so this style of
0:59
riding is as you can see just by the
1:01
shape of the board it’s meant to go that
1:03
one way more than the other they can
1:05
flip it around and still ride the
1:07
opposite direction but they’re not going
1:09
to get that efficiency that they would
1:11
if they’re riding the direction that
1:13
it’s built to go. Now not all freeride
1:17
boards are tapered and and built the
1:19
same way but they’re usually going to be
1:22
a little bit longer and stiffer so that
1:24
they can perform better out on the
1:26
mountain
1:27
whereas in the park their little bit
1:29
more soft and forgiving so that’s a big
1:31
difference between freestyle & freeride
1:32
boards.
1:33
I like to ride a board that is a good
1:36
combination of both
1:38
if I’m come out riding powder and I know
1:41
that’s all I’m going to be riding and
1:42
crud then yeah it’s great to have that
1:45
that tapered board little stiffer in the
1:47
back and softer in the front but it’s
1:50
really nice to have a board that maybe
1:52
the bindings are just set back a little
1:54
bit or like a directional twin tip I
1:56
ridden that for some time but it’s really
1:59
nice to have a board that’s versatile
2:02
where you can be having a great time in
2:04
the park and versatile out on the
2:06
mountain as well.
