Ride Snowboards 2009-2010

05 Mar, 2009

Ride Snowboards continues with their collections for all levels, foundation to ATV to Mobility for the slopes. The top selling boards are back and a couple new ones join them to finish up the line of snowboards. A new sidecut is out, Radial Blendz which I am personally happy for.

Ride’s lowrize rocker has a flat profile through the center of the board and begins the rocker to lift the contact points out of the snow. With a new radial Blendz sidecut to hold an edge with the rocker and 85A slimewalls, you get rocker by Ride. The highrize rocker is only on the Slackcountry, giving the more powder specific rocker for that board.

Prediction, the Ride Slackcountry is gonna be a huge hit in the Northwest, beer and board put together in one with the washington mountain men in bigger sizes, good to go!

    Guy. I haven’t got prices but when I was doing the Board Insiders test, they had a lot of females riding it because of the flex…I didn’t get on it though.

    Anonymous. Not yet, I’ll try for early season like October to try Ride products. I’m due for a lot more Ride boards in the list.
