The 2022 Ride Compact is one of Ride's best-selling boards year after year. With its soft flex and all-mountain versatility, it is a perfect board for any rider who wants to progress their riding without having to push themselves past their comfort levels. Packed with tech that makes it accessible to all skill levels, the Compact is an easy-riding all mountain board that has a directional rocker profile, giving you catch-free performance on groomers and great float in powder. A fun board, full of value that can be used at any level is exactly what the Compact aims to do.
Board Type: All Mountain
Camber Type: Directional Hybrid Rocker
Camber underfoot with a short rocker zone in the tail and a long rocker zone in the nose. This provides stability through the centre of the board, with extra float in the nose and catch free turns in the tail.
The soft flex allows you to press and play with ease, while also making the board easier to control.
The Compact has a directional shape that gives you more control riding forwards.
Core: Womens Performance Core
Specially formulated for the women’s line, this core combines lightweight Paulownia wood stringers with high strength Aspen.
Single impact Plates
One impact plate added underneath each binding area to improve strength and prevent board breaks.
Base: Extruded, Stone Ground
The industry standard extruded 1500 Ptex base material. Good wax absorption and easy to repair.
Slimewalls - A Ride exclusive, incorporating Urethane sidewall technology to absorb impact and make for a smoother ride. These are also the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding, meaning you can really thrash them and they will hold their own.
Roll In Construction - Unique 3D structure built around the urethane Slimewall sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
Quadratic Sidecut - This sidecut blends three radii to improve turn initiation and exit while providing enhanced grip.
