Our Freeride designs are built for the long term. They're tested over a two year development cycle with direct input from a select group of Freeriders in combination with Patrik's wealth of experience. The shapes are specifically designed to be more comfortable and user friendly in all aspects of freeriding, including early planing, controlled blasting and easy gybing. The lightweight construction adds to the early planing and easy gybing characteristics, whilst also improving acceleration and top speed - something you probably won't feel whilst out on the water alone due to the easy going shape, but line up next to your friends and you'll soon notice the difference! Offering only one construction may astonish many people, but we only want the best for our customers without compromise. The full carbon/kevlar deck and bottom is not only light, but it's incredibly tough and long lasting at the same time.
Just like our Wave, FreeStyle and FreeStyleWave ranges, we believe that the most important aspect for FreeRide is to have a strong construction - nobody likes missing out on a session because their board is damaged and in for repair! The Carbon/Kevlar construction on both the deck and bottom is not only incredibly tough and very light, resulting in increased performance, but it's also long lasting, so you can enjoy your PATRIK board for a long time. To protect the Kevlar from harsh UV-rays, allow the lightest possible finish and match our uniform graphic identity, the fiber is laminated with black resin and finished with a white coat which is then sanded back by about 25%.
Technology - Composite Semi Custom Sandwich
Core Material - EPS (Styrofoam)
Sandwish Material - PVC Sheet
Final Lamination - Deck: Full Carbon/Kevlar 90°-90° (Black Resin) / Bottom: Full Carbon/Kevlar 90°-90° (Black Resin)
Scoop Rocker Line - A well balanced curve which has proven to be extremely comfortable in its application. Due to the lightweight construction, the flat section in the tail has been drawn out, which makes the board more stable and controllable whilst also offering earlier planing and increased drive through the gybe.
Rail Shape - Thin up front to reduce weight. Boxy rails in the mid section for balance, stability and additional float during the gybes. Slightly boxy in the tail for increased support and a more comfortable foot position in the straps.
