The Iconic FR is a great all-mountain Apo snowboard that works wonders both on and off piste. Versatile and manageable, this board offers performance and control to any rider with ambitions.
If your thing is carving high-speed turns on groomers and hopping over the ropes as soon as there’s enough powder to do so, if you like Apo’s spirit and graphics, then we might have the perfect board for you. The brand has derived their Iconic board in two versions, a freestyle and a freeride one. The Iconic FR is the latter, suited for powder runs and high speed sesh.
What can the Apo Iconic FR snowboard do?
The Iconic FR mixes a directional shape with a camber + rocker profile, a winning combination if you seek the ultimate versatility in a snowboard. How so? Well, directional shapes tend to give riders more control under the rear foot, especially on complex terrains where manoeuvrability matters most. Rockers make turns smoother and easier to initiate and they maximise float and agility on softer conditions. The board doesn’t feel as catchy and leans on edge easily. The underfoot camber delivers the stability and the grip riders need for laying bold lines but it doesn’t feel too aggressive and keeps the board manageable. All this coupled to a lively woodcore makes the Iconic FR an excellent choice as a go-to freeride-oriented stick.
Who is the Apo Iconic FR snowboard designed for?
