Quatro Freeride 125

Jun 18, 2009

V: 125 L: 247 W: 68
As the smallest board in the test the Freeride fills a different role. It was the last board to get planing with the 7.5 m2 sails but it truly made the most of the 5.7 m2 sails on windier days. For those learning to get in the footstraps in a windy area the reduced volume and control with smaller sails make it the ultimate choice. The board responds well to gusts as it accelerates and it remains stable and smooth once planing. The well-placed inboard and outboard straps help you progress as you get comfortable handling the windy conditions. Advanced riders can find a hidden gear for more speed with some fine tuning. The Freeride also does a great job of making jibing easy. Despite its volume, it remains stable while smoothly carving through a turn. Plus, there is a reward of more speed on exit when starting with a more aggressive weight-forward entry. quatrointernational.com
