Original Freeride 41 Stag WConcave Longboard Complete
Original Freeride 41 Stag WConcave Longboard
The Freeride 41 WConcave uses it's W for board awareness first and foremost. Our goal was to convey stance information via the W while leaving the forward most foot platforms to lock you in with a quasi-traditional flat-to-radial concave that is only very slightly effected by the deeper than average (.20in) WConcave that exists at the board center. We have found this more slight WConcave at the footplatform (with a much steeper W in the center) provides a more comfortable alternative to the severe traditional WConcave options which we found unwieldy in anything but the most downhill specific applications.
We believe the Freeride 41 WConcave is second only to the Freeride 41 RockerConcave in terms of comfort, while easily besting the Freeride 41RC in the lockin and board feel department. The steeper than average center W stiffens the center of the board dramatically compared to the RockerConcave (which is already completely stiff). While this may sound like a good thing, the W removes the ability of the 9 Ply maple construction to flex at the center of the board in extreme impacts (car hits, freestyle stomp misses etc). The board is much less likely to survive either a car hit or a missed stomp. So for those seeking overtime freestyle durabilty we recommend either the Freeride 41 RockerConcave or the Freeride 38 RockerConcave.
No board does it all, check your height vs the Freeride 41WC recommended ridefocus;
Rider Height >= 5ft9in): Freeride 85%; Freestyle 15%
Rider Height <= 5ft8in): Freeride 95%; Freestyle 5%
