“The most insane leash on the market “

PRICE:

$59.95

OVERVIEW:IMG_4504The FCS Freedom leash is one of the comfiest, lightest and futuristic leashes on the market. Revolutionary in design and functionality, this leash has you covered. I’ve been using the freedom leash for the past couple of weeks and it is undoubtedly the comfiest leash I’ve ever worn, as crazy as I may sound, it seriously doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a leash at all. This is due to its precision engineered cuff, which consists of 3mm neoprene padding, which creates a lighter, thinner and more comfortable cuff. The inside of the cuff features a silicone grip print which reduces the cuff from slipping while you surf, it never slid around my ankle or tangled around my feet. The main feature of the leash and greatest innovation is the high tensile over braided nylon cord, the reason being is to create a lighter, stronger and tangle free cord. My favourite benefit was the cord, especially with its limited over stretch design that doesn’t leave you with an over stretched leash. The last key feature of the leash would be the composite horn, which is made lighter and longer from the cuff, it was weird to see such a long horn but it certainly did make an incredible difference with tangling, as it keeps the cord further away from your ankles. Personally, the visual design of this leash is absolutely insane, it looks like it’s from the third dimension and a million light years away. I love how minimal the leash is visually, its insanely sleek and minimal, although still allows some rad colourways. Hats off to FCS for making an incredibly functional and minimal leash, it’s safe to say it will always have a place in my board bag wherever I go and for most people, I was sold as soon as I laid eyes on it.

TEAM RIDER GUS NICHO:

“I love this leggy. It just feels super light with no drag at all like you’re surfing without one because of the really slim line. Also the ankle strap is thin so you don’t really feel it on your leg.

Plus I reckon it looks cool! A bit different to all the others.”
