The Best Freeride Snowboards &
The Best All Mountain Snowboards
Freeride snowboarding is defined by its lack or rules, boundaries, set goals or course to follow. It was born out of the desire to ride anywhere on the mountain, making strong use of natural terrain and features over man made jumps and courses. It is also known as back country snowboarding.
The boards used in freeride snowboarding are styled as freeride or all mountains snowboards. They are always high performance with a moderate to stiff flex and excel in most riding conditions such as landing big jumps, flying over soft back country powder and carving responsivley through tight treeruns. All mountain snowboards tend to be stable and responsive snowboards to ride.
Freeride and all mountain boards vary in style and design some are designed for betterperfomance in powder conditions and others to perform better on hard groomed snow. However they typically are all styled to be unidirectional unlike park or freestyle snowboards. Freeride and all mounatin boards come in a variety of camber options such as rocker, tradional, and varied camber designs.
Freeriding competitions involve no set course. They are usually carried out on big mountain terrain and it is up to each individual rider to negotiate their own course down the hill to be judged by a panel according to style, speed, time and so on. Some of the most famous freeride snowboards are Jeremy Jones, Travis Rice and Craig Kelly
