The Ranger is the freestyle offering from Endeavor’s Foundation Series which, far from being aimed solely at beginner snowboarders, is all about quality, no-nonsense snowboard design that does what exactly what it says on the tin. Freestyle riders who want to progress in the park and still ride the same deck for mobbing slush laps on the piste or even hunting out sidecountry pow stashes, the Ranger should be to your liking.
It’s built with a true twin shape and a freestyle friendly camrock profile to match. It places positive camber between the feet to give snap to your ollies and early rise rocker in the tip and tail to give steeze to your presses, and some forgiveness on landings. When the park is shut these features won’t hold you back either. Combined with the tri-axial glass fibres which, there’s a pretty solid level of power and response that you’d expect from an all-mountain board. For riders who want to level up, the B.O.D might be more to you calling, but the Ranger really does tick a crazy level of boxes at a pretty affordable price point.

To ensure potential customers get bang for their buck – whatever page of Endeavor’s catalogue they choose a board from – all models are fitted with the super fast Dura Surf 4001 sintered base. This not only retains wax for days, it’s also hard as nails so can take a few hit on early-season sharks or some sneaky loose metal in the park without inflicting a fatal shot the core..
As Endeavor recognize that it doesn’t matter what sex you identify as, a good board can be enjoyed by every one, the Ranger is available in a massive ten different lengths from 141 to 158. It is also big foot friendly being slightly wider than comparable boards as well as having two wide models.
