The Drop Freeride 44 is the love child of sliding control and downhill stability.

You may never never want to go slow again.
How Low Can You Go
Wider Stance, Faster Freeride, Steeper Hills, and pinpoint control on even the sketchiest pavement. The Freeride 44 is your new first choice for long slides or hills where sliding is a requirement, not an option. 10 Ply, zero flex, beefy maple with enough wheelbase to keep you comfy and confident on your new (steeper) favorite hills. While the Drop Freeride 44 has a natural need for speed, it also works well for simple trick stuff ie. shuvits, or bigspins.
Since the board is ridiculously easy to manual, you will find yourself not just embracing speed, but also adding your own touch of freestyle steeze creating a ride style all your own.
