Tech

Features:

Twin Extra Camber: A true twin shape hybrid profile that has more camber than rocker.
Linear Quadratic Side-cut: A directional sidecut utilizing Quadratic curvature from the tip to the rear insert pack, then progressing into a linear section into the tail. This creates smooth catch-free turn initiation and powerful support through the turn exit without losing grip.
Sintered Base: High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
Performance‚ĄĘ Core: High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.
Slimewalls¬ģ: Ride‚Äôs exclusive Slimewalls¬ģ are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the urethane in Slimewalls¬ģ smoothes the interaction with the snow, wood or metal surfaces you may ride on. On top of all that, these babies are virtually indestructible, the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding.
Roll-in Construction: Unique 3D structure built around our urethane Slimewall¬ģ sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
Biaxal Glass Fiberglass: 90¬į and 0¬į angles, fun and forgiving.
Impact Plates Laminates: Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels, Single and Double.
Standard Top-sheet: Durable Urethane top-sheet material with graphics only RIDE can bring you.
Cleave Edge‚ĄĘ Steel: Nearly 50% more steel, delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.

Profile: Camber

Precision, control and pop. The side profile of camber looks like a rainbow. Tried and true, camber has been the dominant board bend in the snowboard industry for almost 40 years. Adopted from the bend of alpine skis, camber snowboards deliver precise turning and edge control, with spring-loaded pop due to the bend in the board, providing better jumping characteristics. Advanced riders tend to prefer this bend, especially for hard carving and high-speed riding. Even when it comes to softer park snowboards, camber boards deliver exceptional pop and control.

However, they are not as forgiving of mistakes and can be more difficult to learn or progress on than a rocker or hybrid bend.

Shape: Twin

A completely symmetrical shape, which thrives in a variety of freestyle situations. At the core of its design, the twin shape features an identical nose and tail shape, which provides an identical feel and predictable maneuverability whether riding regular or switch. Although originally developed with park riders in mind, twin shapes have also grown to be embraced by many all-mountain riders that like to bring a skateboard style riding out of the park and onto the entire mountain.


Flex: 2-4 (Scale 1 - 10)

Jibbers delight. Butter it all.

Base: Sintered

High-end base material that is harder, more durable, and faster than extruded bases.

Why Get A Wide Board

Choosing between a wide snowboard and a regular snowboard depends on a few factors. If you have larger feet, a wide snowboard is definitely worth considering. It offers a wider platform that prevents your boots from dragging in the snow during sharp turns, ensuring better stability and reducing the chance of catching an edge. This is especially important for riders with boot sizes of 11 or larger. Wide snowboards also provide more surface area, which can enhance floatation in deep snow and improve overall control. So, if you want a more comfortable and stable ride, a wide snowboard may be what you are looking for.
