The FreeRide is a radical new type of universal wakeboarding tower that looks more like a modern-styled OEM tower found on high-end towboats 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.
The FreeRide Tower is Aerial's flagship model. Packed with high-tech engineering, advanced computer-aided design and premium materials, it is at the forefront of aftermarket universal wakeboard tower innovation.
This is a competition quality, ultra rigid wakeboard tower normally found only on the newest, high-end tow boats. Now, it's available as a much less expensive aftermarket upgrade for any boat.
Basic rule of wakeboarding: the higher the tow-point, the better the ride.
The average tow point for the FreeRide is 90 inches off the deck which is the "sweet spot" preferred by wake sport pros and enthusiasts.
Depending on your specific boat year/make/model and where it is installed, the exact height will vary just a little.
Rotating racks give you easy access to your boards while standing inside the boat.
Quick release knobs make it easy to store your racks while trailering or keeping in storage.
The FreeRide has uniquely designed accessories that only fit on this tower.
The price factor:
Get OEM quality & OEM style without the OEM price tag.
This is definitely NOT a tower you could easily get from a custom shop either! Aerial has invested in expensive machining equipment not found in your common custom shop.
FreeRide features optional single or double speakers pods featuring the innovative marine certified speakers from Fusion.
Impressively clear and loud, you could easily blow the lid off the entire lake!
These speakers pods are also uniquely designed to only fit on the FreeRide for a more unique, custom look.
For an example of engineering marvel, the FreeRide tower folds forward easily and tucks down neatly for better storage and transporting- and all without removing speakers and racks.
All it takes is just a few easy turns on the quick-release knobs!
Get the aggressive look of a modern styled wakeboard tower, the superior quality and workmanship Aerial is known for and instantly increase the value of your ride!
Towers available in ultra polished aluminum and powder coated stealth black. Either way, your boat will demand some serious attention on the water.
Transform your current boat into an awesome new tow boat that will turn heads. FreeRide owners get lots of compliments on the lake and friends & family swear it's a new boat.
Also unique to the FreeRide is its bimini. Just like its speakers and racks, the FreeRide Bimini is specifically engineered to fit on no other tower. Get great on-deck shade with this sturdy accessory.
With all the accessories included, the final result is a seriously kick-ass package with impressive OEM quality and the respect of the entire lake.
