Thesaurus Term : FreeBords

Scope note
A Freebord is kind of specialist skateboard designed to closely simulate the behavior of a snowboard. They have 6 wheels - two spring locked castor wheels on the central axis, and four slightly raised conventional wheels. The central wheels are able to turn freely in all directions, which allows the Freebord to slide laterally as long as no other wheel touches the ground. By exerting some pressure on the edge wheels, the Freeboarder is able to control the board. The central wheels thus mimic the deck of the snowboard, while the outer wheels mimic the two steel edges. Unlike most other skateboards, the Freebord is used with bindings. Freebord is a registered trademark of Freebord Manufacturing Inc.
