Freebord | Snowboard on Pavement!

Riding down steep streets on traditional longboards was the closest you could get to feeling the freedom of snowboarding down a snow covered mountain. That all changed when Freebord hit the market back in 1997. Since then, Freebord has continued to innovate on their unique design that allows riders to bring the control and maneuverability of a snowboard to the pavement. A complete Freebord will set you back anywhere from $219-269; a fraction of the cost for a snowboard setup.

Here is their story: We started out wanting to snowboard all year, wherever and whenever we wanted. And so, we designed a board that gave riders the control of a snowboard on pavement. As Freebord has evolved, so has our goal: bring as much control as possible to riding on pavement. Our riders can carve, slide, slow down and stop whenever they want. They can go as fast or as slow as they want. They can bomb the steepest of streets or ride mellow cruisers; hit big open roads or the narrowest of sidewalks. On a Freebord, riders have the control they need to ride what they want and how they want.

How does Freebord work?

  1. Freebord’s simulation of snowboarding is the result of years of mechanical development and prototypes. The two center wheels function as the base of a snowboard and allow motion in all directions. The outer four wheels function as a snowboard’s edges and sit slightly off the ground. The result is that you can selectively apply your weight to your edges or your base, determining whether to carve or slide or any combination of those two motions.
