Freeride Longboards

While downhill is all about going down the mountain as fast as possible, freeriding lets you really let loose on the same track. Freeriding is something for creative longboarders. The rule here is: can't do, won't do. The more unusual your ride, the better. It's no wonder that there are now even freeriding events of their own that thrill the public. Here you can find our selection of freeride longboards. [read more]

Freeride Longboards

While downhill is all about going down the mountain as fast as possible, freeriding lets you really let loose on the same track. Freeriding is something for creative longboarders. The rule here is: can't do, won't do. The more unusual your ride, the better. It's no wonder that there are now even freeriding events of their own that thrill the public. Here you can find our selection of freeride longboards. ###

Fun factor: Freeriding

Whether standing or squatting, fast or slow, with slides or without - in freeriding, basically everything is allowed. The only rule: don't do anything that puts you in danger. This style of riding is often used by downhillers to gradually approach their limits and find out at what level their skills lie.

Crowd puller freeriding

But even if you're not addicted to the rush of speed, freeriding may well be something for you. One thing is for sure: this style of riding brings that extra dose of adrenaline.

Because it does, freeriding has established itself as a popular discipline for longboard events. The riders can only benefit from this, because at such an event they can show off their skills without fear of being hit by a car on the track. In addition, the roads on which such events are held are always sufficiently equipped with hay bales - so at least serious falls do not end up in the ditch.

The perfect freeriding board

While freeride longboards are designed for speed much like downhill models, you'll still find some differences here. Freeride decks are usually a bit flexy, which makes them easier to steer.

They're also usually shaped so they don't have a distinct front and back. This is important because many freeriders like to make a 180° turn while riding and continue with the opposite foot position. In this context, the pro speaks of a "twin-tip deck".

To lay down perfect slides (also an integral part of freeriding), most freeride boards also have a very low stance and are thus dropped.

The characteristics of a freeride longboard:

  • Slight flexibility (depending on preference)
  • Twin-tip deck
  • Deep standpoint
  • Recesses on the wheels to avoid wheelbites.

Versatility - the big advantage of freeriding boards

The composition of a freeride longboard ensures that you can use it in a very versatile way. On the one hand, it can withstand high speeds, on the other hand, you can use it to develop an individual riding style.

By the way, a nose or tail kick provides even more variance when riding. These little extras allow you to do wheelies and shuvits.

If you are interested in freeriding, it is very important that you have sufficient previous knowledge. Courage alone is not enough to become a good freerider. In this context, you should definitely know your limits and always protect yourself well. Joint protectors and a helmet are mandatory when freeriding.

A combination of creativity and speed - for many longboarders this is the perfection of their hobby. If you don't want to choose either, you should try freeriding. However, make sure you get a board that can handle the difficult demands of this style and don't forget to protect yourself adequately - because even the best freerider falls from time to time.
