After requests from our team riders and customers for a snowboard with a sidecut radius somewhere between a traditional snowboard and the long radius of ”The Freeride”, we started to develop The All Mtn.
The result is a snowboard for everyday freeriding, which is as fun on the groomers and side hits as on a powder day in the backcountry
Mid-long turning radius
It is standard to use a longer turning radius on a freeride ski than on a slalom ski in the skiing industry; however, Furberg Snowboards is the only brand to adapt the turning radius for freeride snowboards. A longer turning radius generates better stability at higher speeds and, more importantly, gives the boards a calmer and more forgiving behaviour by distributing the edge pressure over the entire contact length. The All Mtn has an 11 meter radius, which is slightly shorter than the radius of “The Freeride”. This makes it a more playful board without sacrificing the high-speed stability our boards are known for.
The best compromise between the flotation of full rocker, responsiveness, and grip of camber. For maximum flotation without loosing responsiveness and grip.
Long Rocker and Reverse Sidecut radiuses
When a board is ridden flat on the snow, a long rocker transition will make the nose of the board impact irregularities with a low angle of incidence and slide over with little resistance. Many snowboard brands are aware of this, but only we have combined the rocker with a reverse sidecut in nose and tail to maintain this low angle of incidence when riding the board on edge.
The long transitions of the reverse sidecut make the board turn more effortlessly since the typical pressure points at the end of the effective edge do not exist. The overall result is a very catch-free and surfy board.
Long and high nose
Increases flotation and makes the board slide over irregularities in the snowpack with less resistance. The very last part of the nose also has a slightly steeper angle to make touring with our splitboards easier.
“If you’d been tempted by the Freeride but where concern by the long turning radius, this might be for you. It’s a Furberg, but a bit less Furbergy………”
