| The FreeRide is a radical new type of universal wakeboarding tower.
In fact, at first glance, the FreeRide looks more like an OEM wakeboarding tower than a traditional universal tower. It features a dramatic forward swoop, reinforcing buttresses along the curved frame, a twin H-top, and quick release knobs that make it easy to fold the tower for transporting and storage. These design elements give the FreeRide tower the style of an OEM tower only available with specialized wakeboarding boats. But FreeRide is a universal tower, designed to fit on nearly every power boat made in the last 30 years.
The FreeRide tower is manufactured with 2.25 inch diameter (2.5 inch diameter for the top cross bar) 6061 aircraft grade aluminum tubing to minimize tower flex while wakeboarding. The universal design of this tower allows it to fit any boat from 75-100 inches wide. When folded, the FreeRide tower will clear a standard 6 foot 11 inch garage opening for storage, on most boats, however there are cases where depending on the boat's configuration that this will not happen. Universal swivel mounts can be installed to the top or side of almost any hull.
To comply with U.S. Coast Guard standards and various state laws requiring specific lighting configurations for boats operating between sunset and sunrise or in times of restricted visibility, the FreeRide features a compact size LED white light above the tow point. The light features Attwood's incandescent 5940 series LED that draws only 1.8 watts at 12VDC, the lowest power draw of any 2-mile all-round light on the market. Lights are rated for 50,000+ hours of use.
