The TX3 is the all-terrain freeride board of F-One’s comprehensive twin-tip line. The TX3 delivers performance with a high-quality design and materials both inside and out. The responsive carbon controlled wood core works with the bottom shaped to smooth out chop and provide reactive pop, with steady control and easy tracking at speed. This was one of the Test Team’s favourite all-round shapes. In contrast to many of the flatter bottomed and single concaved shapes available, the TX3 uses 3D shaping that includes a centred concave, channels towards the rails and tips and lateral V shaping along the rails. The TX3 has plenty of pop, with stiff centred section and thin but reactively flexing tips. The F-One TX3 delivers the goods and will be a go-to board that is best suited to the aggressive intermediates or advanced level riders.
Footbed and Strap System: Platinum Pro Pads and Straps
The Platinum footpads are well designed with lightweight air pockets and well-cushioned dual-density heel beds. The system is well designed to make assembly easier than many of the similar traditionally shaped strap and bed systems. With their Strap Lock II system, the adjustable portion of the strap is removed and the strap lock easily aligns to the inserts. Good lightweight and highly cushioned footbed and easily adjustable traditional straps.
