A freeride snowboard is a type of snowboard specifically designed for off-piste riding and exploring un-groomed terrains outside of designated trails. It is intended for snowboarders who enjoy adventurous descents in deep powder snow, steep slopes, and challenging terrain.
Characteristics of a freeride snowboard are designed to meet the needs of riding in off-piste conditions and exploring diverse terrains. Some features include: a directional shape, a relatively stiff flex, a camber profile, and a setback stance.
The length of a freeride snowboard depends on various factors, including your height, weight, riding style, and preferences. Generally, a freeride snowboard is ridden approximately 2 to 4 cm longer than an all-mountain snowboard.
You may choose a freeride snowboard if you are interested in riding outside of groomed slopes and exploring off-piste terrain. Freeride snowboards are designed to perform well in various terrain conditions, especially in deep powder snow, steep slopes, and rough surfaces.
