Best Answer

Freeride is a relatively new discipline of Mountain Biking, combining different aspects of the sport such as downhill and dirtjumping which has progressed rapidly in recent years, and is now recognised as one of the most popular disciplines within mountain biking. The term is a derivative of freeriding, which originally came from Snowboarding and is now also used in other sports including skiing and windsurfing. The original concept of freeriding was that there was no set course, goals or rules to abide by.

What equipment for freestyle motorcross?

FMX riders typically use much of the same riding gear as MX racers. This includes a helmet, goggles, gloves, boots, jersey and MX pants. They may supplement this with elbow and knee pads. Riders may also choose to wear 'body armor' to protect the chest and legs when performing the most dangerous of tricks, as did Travis Pastrana when performing his double backflips. A Leatt neck brace may also be worn if rider are concerned about neck injuries or are attempting dangerous tricks. One major component of Freestyle Motocross is the foam pit. These vary in size, but are usually a rectangular box filled with shredded or cubed foam. The FMX rider will jump from a ramp, practicing one of the more dangerous or prototype tricks, and execute a safe landing into the safe foam regardless of the actual landing position. Ramps are usually made out of metal, as this keep the 'lips' of the ramp consistent. The landing ramp is normally constructed from dirt. If the event has limited resources, landings ramps may be built on trucks or trailers. When freeriding, however, the rider jumps from dirt to dirt.

A form of skiing?

Two answers after a merger:1. As two different sports, they both have their advantages and disadvantages.Skiing can be used for hiking, if a free heel binding is used, and is easier to use as a transportation tool.It takes a long time to excel at (years), but is easier for the first two days.Skiing switch (backwards) adds a new dimension to skiing, and you can do more grabs and jibs on rails, because you have two separate skis.You can generally go bigger and faster on skis.Snowboarding is a different feeling, because you are practically surfing on snow.This is the main appeal of snowboarding, especially when riding in powder, because you are on top of the snow, rather than moving through it.It is hard to pick up in the first few days, especially without a teacher, but you can get relatively good in two seasons.It is easier to do rails and boxes on a snowboard, which is a big advantage for many, and also easier to have style when freeriding and riding in the park.Snowboard Boots are much more comfortable than Ski Boots.Everybody Snowboards and Skis differently, so there are many different opinions on the subject.2. I Think skiing is way better because You have less chance of being hurt and at the same time you go faster than a snowboard... Yes you can do a little more tricks on a snowboard and yes the skiis are more expensive to buy but you have way more fun on skiis.

What is a good longboard for beginners?

Choosing a good skateboard can be tricky, if you're a beginner in the sport. There's a lot that you have to take into account, in addition to the cost. You have to also consider the complete board, the deck, the trucks, and the wheels, whether you're buying a ready-made skateboard or are putting together your own.
