Don't let the graphics fool you. There is nothing sweet about this board. It puts all the other riders to shame as this thing is a rocket! it might be superceded but at this price it doesnt matter!The Ride OMG is the womens HELIX!
it's a confidence inspiring snowboard that is designed to go harder and faster than all others. The asymmetrical side cut allows you to enter your heel turns quicker than ever whilst providing optimal balance on your toe side as well. The carbon array 3 laminates keep your board stable on edge and you will be carving so hard that you will be kissing the snow as you lay the deepest trenches. It doesn't end with the turns, because the slime rods will sending you popping into the heavens! We agree, OMG!
Profile: Asymmetrical Twin / Hybrid Camber
Extra thick steel edges to take the brunt.
TWIN ASYMMETRICAL HYBRID CAMBER:
A true twin shape hybrid profile that has more camber than rocker.
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.
Asymmetric sidecut shaping improves heelside turn initiation and control. Offering perfect balance while turning through different radii for the heel and toe side edges, the board just feels right!
High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
WMNS PERFORMANCE™ CORE:
Specially formulated for the women’s line, this core combines lightweight Paulownia wood stringers with high strength Aspen. Available on every women’s board.
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.
DOUBLE IMPACT PLATES LAMINATES:
Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most.
RIDE’s LSD Poprods® 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, LSD Poprods® 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 channelled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control.
Triaxial on top, biaxial on base; balanced torsional flex and stiffness for better response with speed.
Unique 3D structure built around our urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent top sheet chipping, and reduce weight.
