There are two types of rails:
- Handrail, a normal handrail on the sides (or the middle) of a stair
- Flatbar, a rail that is not kinked and is on the ground, not on any stairs or ramps
It is also commonly used in freestyle skiing, skiers perform tricks off and onto a rail and also while grinding it. Rails can be all different shapes and sizes, usually ending with a small to medium drop to the landing.
