Ride Bindings & Boots 2009-2010

30 Mar, 2009


Ride designs their products for each step of the way as a rider progresses.  The Foundation steps that give the rider comfort, the ATV offering all terrain response to Mobility making the freestyle rider feel lightweight with full movement.

Contraband, Wedgie’s, Convertible grip, alumium, custom flex are all in the game for Ride’s 09-10 binding line.  The boot line continues with a variety of lacing systems from regular lacing to boa, to focus boa to give each rider a system that matches them.  Intuition liners and blown light sole technology, and Aegis anti-microbial coating just help make the ride smoother.

For 09-10, Ride stepped outside the collaboration box by starting Ride Snowboards Craft Projects featuring the seventh grade art class at Denny Way Middle School in Seattle, WA.  The 3rd period seventh graders designed the artwork for the Ride Crush snowboard and the Strapper Keeper boot liner which features their artwork.

Ride continues with the Big Foot Boot that they launched this summer for snowboarders with 16-22 sizes needing boots that fit.  I just hope they can find bindings and boards to match the boot size.

At the bottom is an overview of the boot and binding line since I didn’t capture many photos during SIA.
