F-One TRAX HRD Review

Size: 136 x 40

Bindings: Platinum 3

The TRAX HRD has pure freeride oriented performance that is well suited to any skill level. The solid, wood core constructed board is packed with smart technology to give it nice stiff and reactive flex. It’s a smooth and controlled ride with plenty of access to speed and high levels of control. Test team riders found this board really smooth through choppy waters with nice grip for loading up the lines or blasting some hard carving turns. When you lift off the edge though, the TRAX has a really smooth carving nature that can be hard to find in the more aggressive freestyle oriented, twintip shapes. The unique HRD rails consist of thicker and inverted rails under the feet that taper to sharper rails through the mid section and tail. This gives the board a floaty feel with easy release through board slides and transitions. Fast and controlled, with plenty of pop for freestyle or big air, the TRAX HRD is a solid performer for any level and is a board that you can learn and grow with. The Platinum 3 bindings complement the TRAX HRD Lite Tech’s performance with a nicely adjustable and locked in system. There’s lots of cushioning under the heel and on the straps to soften landings.
