Prior MFR - 2016


Manufacturer's Description:

The Men’s Freeride (MFR) has been refined over the years but is the original Freeride shape designed by Chris Prior in the early 90’s; the MFR is a classic example of a true, all mountain shape that maintains its role in the line as the workhorse of the fleet.  Its directional Freeride shape delivers a smooth, stable ride in a variety of different snow conditions and the Hybrid Rocker Profile only adds to its versatility;  rocker in the nose and tail for turn initiation and float while maintaining traditional camber underfoot for added stability, rebound and edgehold. With minimal taper, the MFR provides both power and drive on edge while allowing the playful rider to land or ride switch.

XCK Carbon-Kevlar Construction is available as an upgrade to all Prior snowboards and saves an average of 500 grams (1lb 1oz) off a Prior snowboard pressed with our standard Triaxial Fiberglass.

Profile: Hybrid Rocker Profile provides flotation and predictability in powder and silky smooth transitions edge-to-edge with excellent edge control. 2-4 mm of traditional camber underfoot provides energy from turn-to-turn.

Rider Type: The big rider, soft boot carver, cruiser, speed demon and soul rider. It is great for directional all mountain freeriders looking for stability at speed.

Best For: Speed, steeps, powder, groomers, ice, crud, variable snow­pack.
