2017 Updates

The new 2017/18 Freeride and Freeride Split have been developed during a three year period. Throughout those years we’ve experimented with different sidecut radiuses, rocker profiles and materials. The end result is a more responsive and allround board compared to previous years.

Slightly shorter turning radius
This year we have made the turning radius slightly shorter than previous years to make our snowboards more responsive and playful on hardpack. But don’t worry, our boards still have approximately a 70 % longer turning radius than the average freeride board.

Low Camber
The best compromise between the flotation of full rocker, responsiveness and grip of camber.

Longer Rocker and Reverse Sidecut radiuses
Allows our snowboards to be even more catch free and maintain direction better when on edge than before.

Longer and higher nose
Increases flotation and makes the board slide over irregularities in the snowpack with less resistance.

Made in the EU

Furberg Snowboards products are produced in Poland, in the EU. The raw production materials are sourced from the EU, avoiding unnecessary shipment by plane, which reduces the company’s environmental footprint.

We could keep talking about how amazing our boards are for hours, but which snowboard brand doesn’t claim to have the best boards on the planet? Instead we’ve put together some reviews from the last winters, for you to find what others have to say:

Splitboard.com is worth a visit if you want to learn more about splitboarding, discuss boards, etc.. Since the release of the Freeride in 2011, Furberg Snowboards has probably been the most discussed brand on the forum.

This is what Taylor from splitboard.com had to say in an in depth review about the Freeride:
“I have not had so much fun riding a snowboard in a long time. It initiates and exits turns effortlessly, it pivots very quickly, it slarves and smears fast and beautifully, and it rails nicely too.”

Check out Taylor’s full review here.

SplitboardMag.com is the only magazine 100 % dedicated to splitboarding. In their yearly test, the Freeride Split was rewarded as the “Most Innovative Splitboard”.

“It showed an excellent performance on deep snow, with great floatability thanks to its rocker and reverse sidecut; it also feels really easy from edge to edge when it’s deep. We all wished we’d had the chance to ride it a few more days.”

Luke Rees from AWE365 got to test the Freeride in the French Alps, and wrote a long review about his impressions.

“When the slope was shallow, the snow slow or crusty, the Furberg kept floating and maintained my momentum better than those I was riding with. Through the trees it was surprisingly nimble, even when following packed powder tracks it flowed with the natural contours helping me to maintain pace.”

Mountain Weekly News, based out of Jackson Hole, had the chance to test the Freeride Split for a few days. This one sentence sums up the full review in a good way:

“Camber is not just for getting rad in the air, this board really excels when laying an edge, holding on at high speeds and just charging fully committed down the mountain.”

Life in modern society can be a little bit too warm, comfortable and connected. We decided to do something about it and went on a camping trip to Nallo, in the very north of Sweden, in February. Computers and cell phones were left behind. Instead we packed up splitboard/rando gear and our warmest clothes and sleeping bags.

We set up our camp far far away from roads, buildings, electricity, cellphone coverage and people. But in the middle of beautiful and silent nature.

After a week in winter wilderness you learn appreciate things you take for granted normally. The first night not sharing a sleeping bag with a pair of wet and smelly liners was pretty great. Getting water out of the tap instead of having to boil water when you are thirsty is convenient. And not having to warm your friends cold and sweaty feet in your arm pit is ok. But it was the same things I loved about the trip. Contrasts enriches life.

The fall can be a very frustrating time of the year; the desire to get back on snow after a long summer is high, but finding decent riding conditions can be difficult. Thus, we’ve interviewed and collected some of the best tips for preseason riding from our team riders. This time Freeride World Tour rider Manuela Mandl is providing some tips about where to go in the Eastern Alps.

What’s your favorite resort for pre-season riding?

Kitzsteinhorn. I like the park setup, but there are also many possibilities for freeriding.

What makes the place special?

Already early in the season there are some technical and steep lines which can be ridden. They tend to be quite icy, so very good technique training. And there are not too many crevasses on this glacier, compared to some others. As soon as there is a bit more snow, you have a lot of possibilities for easy and playful lines with a variety of drops.

What time of fall would you recommend to go there, and why?

I normally start my season by late October, but it really depends on weather and snow conditions, which vary widely every season. The park normally opens beginning of October, so from that time on there is something to do.

Any special runs you could recommend?

I like the run underneath the gondola which is going up to Gipfelwelt 3000, the highest spot in the skiresort. It’s quite steep in the beginning and there are some variations. There are some creavasses at the bottom, so be careful.

Do you also have any favorite place for splitboarding in fall/early winter?

I actually enjoy Dachstein Glacier quite a lot. Very early in the season you can take the gondola up and then work on technical skills like crevasse rescues and alpinism techniques on the glacier. The peak of Dachstein is magnificent and it’s only a short walk to be out of sight of the resort.

If there is already snow at Ramsau there are some really rewarding tours up the southside. You can for example tour up Edelgries and ride down again without using the gondola at all. But you still have to pay toll for the road or pay the ski bus which brings you up to 1700m. You can really experience the impact of climate change up there, as the glacier is melting rapidly and one can investigate different geological traces.

Backcountry snowboarding can be a dangerous activity. You should always read the local avalanche report, bring the necessary safety equipment, and have the required safety knowledge before heading into the backcountry.
