Ride Twinpig Snowboard · 2023
This snowboard is a great twin option for floating in pow, hitting up the park, and cruising! The stability of the wide platform let you size down and still reap the benefits of a snowboard a few sizes larger!!
Ride Warpig Snowboard · 2023
A directional, playful, volume shifted deck, designed for the rider who loves a freestyle feel in their freeriding. Very wide waist allows you to size down 5cm or so, and the wide waist adds stability and float in powder. Hybrid camber profile, with a set back camber zone under foot for solid edge hold carving and pop off of side hits, and loads of rocker to the nose for pow floatation. The tail and nose are not too stiff, so this board can butter nicely and lock into presses. Slimewall edge tech reduces chatter adds stability on landing. This board is a blast for the rider looking for a directional shaped board for all terrain riding, looking for a surfy feel in the trees and a dream in the pow.
From laying deep into carves to big mountain lines, freestyle laps in the park to powder stashes in the trees, this Volume Shifted option from Ride is designed to feel playful and be durable. The Warpig is a true weapon of choice when it comes to all-mountain riding. Naturally a wider board, you can size down a few cm for a more nimble ride. A true mid flexing directional board for the intermediate to advanced rider.
This board is super fun. It's a volume shift board allowing you to ride it shorter but get the same feel as a normal size board. The directional zero camber profile allows for float in pow and super easy turning. The tapered bi radial sidecut and carbon 3 array give it stability when getting deep in the turn as well as getting pop when you wanna get some air. The Warpig is so versatile and so much fun!
Ride Manic Snowboard · 2023
Summary: This snowboard is an all-rounder powerhouse that you can ride on groomers, down steeps, in the trees, on ice, in the park, heck you could probably even ride it through the parking lot (please don't though)! It's a very durable all-mountain board that's friendly towards learning and will serve as an great choice for the beginner/intermediate who strives to shred harder!
Top features of this snowboard:
- Rocker in the nose and tail and camber between the bindings makes this a versatile board you can easily take all over the mountain!
- It's "quadratic sidecut" makes it exceptionally easy to get into turns and really gives you good grip and control when making those turns!
- With a soft-medium flex, this board is plenty playful and forgiving as you progress, giving you a smoother style!
Why I personally love it: I personally really like that Ride uses something called "slimewalls" which is exclusive to their brand. These slimewalls absorb vibration and create a much smoother ride when cruising down the hill!
All-mountain resort rider. Will take care of performance while still being forgiving!
Ride Twinpig Snowboard · 2022
Park, deep carves on the groomers, side hits and steeper terrain. Sidewalls are made of skateboard wheel urethane for vibration dampening and durability. Great for butters and jibs.
Just about everything but heli-drops in AK, great in the park too.
Ride Benchwarmer Snowboard · 2022
Any all-mountain or freestyle rider that is on the aggressive side will love what this board brings to the table. It is fast, has soooo much pop, and really snaps out of turns. A nice, and stiff twin for the riders that like to get after it in the park, or anywhere else on the resort. A mostly camber board with rocker in the tip, and tail. That combined with its stiffer flex gives this board all the control, pop, and stability any aggressive rider would love, but can still turn in tight spaces. Double impact plates, carbon stringers, and a stone ground sintered base, this board is loaded with tech that is normally in boards that are normally $650+. This is a really strong board that should hold up really well for heavier riders.
It has impact plates to make the board much stronger and more resistant to breaks. The traditional camber makes it great for all-mountain riding. This is an asymmetrical twin with a different heelside and toeside radius to help with carving and balance. This one is more geared towards the park and is built to be lightweight and extra strong.
Ride Agenda Snowboard · 2023
Ride Berzerker Snowboard · 2023
This board from Ride is designed for the hard charging rider who wants something that can handle a little bit of everything. On the stiffer end, this Berzerker features strong traditional camber in the center of the board with a longer rocker section at the nose. A big nose and with extra camber will allow for easy carving and while float in any powder you find.
Ride Magic Stick Snowboard · Women's · 2023
The Magic Stick is designed for all-mountain performance. The tapered directional hybrid shape will ensure float in softer snow, while providing stability on harder snow. The camber between the bindings provides snap and response and the slightly longer nose has more rocker than the narrower tail, which both provide float and control in all conditions. A Tapered Bi-Radial sidecut provides effortless turn initiation and a smooth and stable turn/exit. Slimewalls® provide a smooth ride and increase durability underfoot. Carbon Array 3™ provides extra pop and control without adding stiffness. The Magic Stick is a mid-flexing all-mountain shape for the most demanding women riders.
Ride Peace Seeker Snowboard · 2023
Ride took their most advanced tech features (Carbon Slimewalls, Glass pedal tail, Double impact plates) & materials (Bamboo, Aspen & Paulownia core) and packed it into this 100% unique hybrid shred stick. Aggressive responsive flex with a bi-radial sidecut makes this feel like a wide board that you don't have to work to turn. Definitely suggest taking a closer look at this one - I think it might have some awards coming its way in the near future.
