Key Features

Board Type: Rips park and hard-pack

Camber Type: Positive Camber

The original snowboard shape offering high speed stability, power and pop. Enjoy a playful and precise ride, with snappy suspension for continuous edge control

Flex: 5/10 (1=soft, 10=stiff)

Twin Flex: This puppy will ride exactly the same whether you are riding regular or switch with its perfect mirror construction from tip to tail. Great Medium flex that can ride all over the mountain and play in the park.

Shape: Asymmetrical Twin

This design accommodates for the mechanical differences in turning, on either your heel or toe edges. A tighter heel sidecut, and wider toe sidecut make for easier turns and reduce the risk of catching an edge.

Core: Performance Core

Sustainable Aspen wood combined with Bamboo and Paulownia for a snappy lightweight board that balances weight and strength perfectly.

Base: Sintered

The fastest material on snow. Durable, wax absorbent and easy to repair. Oh and did we mention it was fast?

Additional Features:

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 Slimewalls: Fiberglass structures that surround the built in Slimewalls to increase durability, including top sheet chipping, and keep the weight down.

Hybrid Glass: A combination of Triaxal and Biaxal give the perfect degree of flex and stiffness. The result is a board that better handles speed.

Carbon Array 3 Laminates: Widespread carbon stringers gather rider input, which is channelled through to the opposite contact point for maximum board control. Basically, it distributes power throughout the board for a steady ride, no matter how you set up your stance.

Carbon Slime Rods: Flat Carbon rods that wrap a Urethane slime core, strategically placed in the tip and tail to add ridiculous pop and smooth out hard landings.
