The TRAX has a long heritage and is one of the most popular twin tips on the market. It is the ultimate freeride and freestyle board with a unique feeling on the water, offering both speed and comfort with fantastic glide. The HRD Rail plays a significant role in the way the board handles, and it sets it apart from everything else out there.
HRD is a unique feature using a process that allows for the rails of the board to be shaped in 3D. There are three sections to the rail as it runs the length of the board. In the middle of the board, the rail is thin for grip and improved upwind ability, under the feet the rail is inverted and curved like a surfboard rail allowing the board to smoothly track through chop and improving its carving ability. As the rail reaches the tips, it thins out again, allowing superior grip and bite to give excellent pop.
The carbon series benefits from a high-tech construction, which incorporates carbon fiber to provide extra strength and stiffness, allowing a reduction in the mass of material used in the board. Combined with an ultra-light-weight top-sheet layer, this results in a much lighter board, which makes a significant difference on the water where you can push your moves even further. The carbon construction also makes the board very responsive as it reacts instantly to all of the demands of the rider.
On the water, the TRAX HRD Carbon Series offers an instant feeling of speed and performance, the HRD rail eliminates spray and feels very comfortable regardless of the water conditions. The flex has been tuned with the properties of carbon fibre to provide the best pop off the water; the tips are exceedingly responsive and help to launch you into the air when you load up the edge for take-off. When it comes to landings, the wide outline and channelled base combine to smooth things out and allow you to retain control at all times.
The board is so popular because it works for such a wide variety of riders, from experts in freestyle to beginners and everyone in between, the TRAX is an excellent choice. Combining early planing, upwind ability and control, there is plenty of performance at your disposal when you need it. From flat water to harsh chop, the TRAX can handle it. Get ready for a ride like no other!

The LITE TECH (Integrated TPU Element) patented by ROSSIGNOL Snowboards is an F-ONE exclusivity in the kiting world bringing an incredible look and design to your board.
3D DECK STRUCTURE
Board flex is tuned through both materials and shape. The shape of the deck is especially engineered to make the board ultra responsive between your legs for maximum drive and precision with the flex increasing progressively towards the tips for maximum pop and comfort.
Reduces the core volume and weight and adds extra flexibility towards the tip of the board.
Combined with the other deck features, this makes the board stiff in the middle sections but with a nice flex towards the tips, making the drive very precise with a smooth riding feeling and extra pop for the jumps
Each year, in order to master these properties, we seek to optimize its distribution, particularly in terms of thickness.
CONCAVE STEP DESIGN
The concave absorbs the chop and improves its grip on the water.
The channel enhances the flow of the water and relieves the pressure on the back foot, providing incomparable comfort.
The patented UNIBOX system and RESPONSE fins have a radical effect: the asymmetrical profile improves the general ride and early planing.
However, it is the flex of the RESPONSE fins that gives amazing rail-grip as well as pop and forgiveness on heavy freestyle landings.

We have developed a pad which is able to fit all types of feet whilst ensuring the best connection with your board. The pad offers the most amazing feel while riding, and absorb the impacts. The straps lock your feet to the pad in the ideal position.
To obtain the highest quality pads, we have chosen an injected process that permits various forms and densities. We created a dual-density pad for an optimized comfort: the edge areas are denser for a better support while the foot bed areas are softer for more comfort. We are using a unique process that allows generating all possible forms while picking the best EVA foam density.
Because a pad is those two essential things: a form and a foam. The F-ONE strap is fully adjustable to the size and shape of the foot. This year we have improved the quality of the strap, which are now filled with gel foam for a fantastic comfort. Its neoprene coating is combined with a base in injected plastic.
