There are two different types of boards to choose from: Maple & Bamboo.
Our maple decks are made with traditional 7 ply Canadian rock maple that most skate decks are made with. Maple decks have slightly more pop than bamboo decks, but aren’t as rigid as bamboo; either deck rides great and get the job done, it just depends on your personal preference.
Our bamboo-maple hybrid decks are made with a 5 ply Canadian rock maple core and 2 plys (top and bottom of vertically laminated bamboo). The bamboo plys make this deck stronger, slightly lighter,and more rigid (providing more edge control/responsiveness than the pure maple deck)
Freebord’s Da Blues wheels are the result of extensive R&D. Fueled by rider progression and tested by Freebord’s Pro Team, Da Blues are the highest performance wheel in our lineup. Their custom shape, custom urethane and 45mm contact patch provide maximum grip while still delivering a consistent and predictable slide. Freebord’s most durable wheel will elevate your riding no matter what style of rider you are. You will find these wheels under the feet of every Freebord Pro Team rider. Poured in California.
Poured in California with the freestyle rider in mind, Freebord’s brass monkey wheel offers you the same quality, durable urethane as the Da Blues but in a smaller size. Their increased rocker when paired with 72mm center wheels gives you the clearance you need to hit the park.[/one_half]
Choosing the correct deck size is extremely important because it determines your stance width – or how far apart your bindings will be.
Freebord decks come in 75 , 77 , 80, 83, and 85 cm lengths. While some riders prefer a wider stance and others prefer a narrow stance, a rider’s height is the best indicator of how wide your stance will be.
So, what do all these measurements mean?
Freebord decks follow the same industry standard sizing method as snowboards. Here’s a breakdown of each measurement:
The length of our boards are measured in centimeters.
The stance width is measured from the middle of each of the bindings.
The width is measured at the widest section of the deck.
What size should I get then?
Listed below is the official Freebord sizing chart. It lists all the measurements I mentioned earlier; it also includes a height range beside each size.
