The FRD model features a more traditional design with a square, flat tail, full length camber and a slow rise tip. Known for its fast and fluid domination of big-mountain lines, it is versatile enough to devour sustained vertical and the many variable snow conditions you might encounter on long, steep descents, and is also a key player in the resort ski category. While the FRD transitions smoothly from edge to edge, effortlessly initiating carves and responsively exiting turns, it also feels great going straight down!
The Standard Edition FRD is offered in a #4 flex heavy hitter maple ash core with carbon fiber
With its ability to take on a myriad of snow conditions, customizing your FRD with a #3 flex and ultra light core options make it a great backcountry option!
Also...The heavy hitter core with carbon fiber that is used for the stock version of the Freeride is great to combo with a wood veneer top. This will reduce/offset the extra weight of the heavy hitter core and in our opinion for this size ski the combo of heavy hitter core carbon and veneer is the perfect performance build creating a damp, powerful and responsive ski.
