RIDE BERZERKER 2023 SNOWBOARD
The Ride Berzerker is the brainchild of Jake Blauvelt, one of snowboarding's most respected freeride freestyle riders. It is the true all-terrain high performance rig, with a slightly tapered outline to punish powder and a directional twin profile takes the freestyle vibe to big mountain riding. Carbon Slimerods® and a urethane core of the board provide a strong and stable ride to absorb those heavy impacts and dampen any chatter, whilst allowing you to rail hard on your carves backed by a camber tail. The quadratic sidecut has various radii in the outline, so whether you are drawing out wide lines or need a nimble platform, the board will always handle the task given to it. Jake Blauvelt needs a beast to back up is snowboarding, and the Berzerker does not disappointed. It knows no boundaries and takes freeride with a dash of freestyle to the next level.
DESIGN: Tapered Directional Hybrid Camber (Rocker nose with progressive camber to the tail)
Blending of three radii to improve turn initiation/exit while providing the best grip possible. This design is uniquely formulated for each model based on its shape and riding style.
Triaxial on top, biaxial on base; balanced torsional flex and stiffness for better response with speed.
High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.
CARBON SLIMERODS® 2.0:
RIDE’s Slimerods® give already fun and playful boards the added liveliness to set them apart from other boards. Using strategic placement in the boards tip and/or tail, this technology adds pop without the stiffness generally associated with snappy boards. Made up of flat carbon rods that wrap a urethane slime-core, Slimerods® have carbon for massive pop and a slime-core to smooth out the landing.
CARBON ARRAY 3 LAMINATES:
This power distribution technology provides total board control in every stance location. Widespread carbon stringers placed at the binding zone gather input from any stance width and all pressure angles. Rider input is then channeled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control.
DOUBLE IMPACT PLATES LAMINATES:
Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most.
Unique 3D structure built around our urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
RIDE’s exclusive Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the urethane in Slimewalls® 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.
