The FreeRide tower is manufactured with beefy 2.25 inch diameter (2.5 inch diameter for the top cross bar) aircraft grade aluminum tubing to greatly minimize tower flex. 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. The light is rated for 50,000+ hours of use.
CAN I PULL TUBES, INFLATABLE OR ANY TOWABLE FROM A WAKEBOARD TOWER?
You should never tow an inflated towable from a wakeboard tower. The amount of force could damage or break a wakeboard tower, lead to damage of your boat's fiberglass hull and possibly injure someone. Towing an inflated tube or towable is very different than towing a wakeboarder. There could be significantly more drag or anchoring force than a wakeboard tower was designed to handle.
In fact, even factory installed wakeboard towers found on the most expensive wake boats don't allow you to tow tubes. They all have warning labels that specifically state not to otherwise it will void your warranty. If an aftermarket wakeboard tower manufacturer claims their towers are strong enough to pull towables, we would still advise you not to.
We recommend you use a low transom mounted ski tow eye hook to tow tubes.

Sweet Tower, we love it!!
The tower looks great
Our Aerial Wakeboarding tower looks like it was made with the boat. This boat and tower turns heads on the road, on the water... IT TURNS HEADS! Chrome is nice, but BLACK is the BOMB!
I love the look of my boat but I can't tell you how impressed I am with the new look of the boat with the Aerial FreeRide tower installed. The tower was very easy to install. I would recommend Aerial wakeboarding towers to anyone. The customer service was excellent.
I bought the boat to restore/customize. The Freeride tower was the perfect touch! It looks AMAZING! Thanks! I just finished customizing and haven't had it on the water yet so the only pics I have are on the trailer.
Aerial produces incredible products at affordable price. I loved it that Aerial rewarded me with great discounts the more products that I bought. I bought the freeride tower with swivel racks and speakers. It turned my boat into show room quality. My friends think that I am driving around in a $60,000.00 boat and are jealous of my "new" boat.
