If you’ve got little interest in the park, then even an all-mountain board might be a little too broad for your tastes. Instead, why not go for one of these specialist sticks that’s designed to make the most of whatever terrain is laid out in front of you?

Some of these lean heavily towards the deep, deep powder, while others are aimed more at carving. They’re all capable of a bit of both, though, so wherever you’re able to put in your turns, you’ll be glad you got one of these.
Some also open the door to backcountry freestyle, and so could be taken off jumps of any size, but are a little too pow-focused to be called a true all-mountain board. You won’t, for example, tend to see any of them lapping the rail line.
But if it’s freeriding you want, then with these sticks it’s freeriding you shall have. Check out our top freeride boards for 2017/18 below.
