The Freebyrd is a symmetrical cutaway drop through longboard, aimed at the beginner. It features a cambered profile and a nice responsive flex.
The flex and the drop-through trucks work together to create a comfortable cruiser that will also do a bit of dancing and sliding if you want.
The Freebyrd features drop-through truck mounting. This means that the trucks are mounted through the deck via the top of the truck baseplate, rather than on the bottom of the baseplate like a regular skateboard or longboard.
This results in:
- lower deck height = easier to push and footbrake
- lower center of gravity = more stable at speed
- lower ride height in relation to the wheels = slides become easier to initiate and control
All these characteristics make the Freebyrd a perfect beginner longboard. It’s great for learning longboarding basics and learning to slide.
A Premium Setup
If we’re honest, it’s this running gear – especially the trucks – that really makes the difference to how well a longboard skates.
With the Freebyrd, you’re getting a premium setup – it’ll feel awesome underfoot, straight out of the box.
The Ideal Cruiser Board
The Freebyrd is a great all-rounder, perfect for nipping to the shops, learning to slide or just cruising around. It has a flexy ride thanks to the cambered maple construction, giving great energy return from carving turns and a smooth ride over rougher road surfaces.
If you’re looking for a drop-through cruiser – you are in the right place!
