Ride 2022 Compact Snowboard
The Ride Compact Snowboard is a soft-flexing directional twin that packs a ton of versatility into a small package. Equally at home on park features and pow, the Compact is a move in the right direction for your snowboarding, like a Marie Kondo-ization that streamlines your quiver into a single board that brings you joy.
Directional Hybrid Rocker – A directional shape with a hybrid profile that has more rocker than camber.
Quadractic Sidecut – 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.
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.
Bi-axial Glass – 90° and 0° angles, fun and forgiving.
Single Impact Plates – Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels, Single and Double.
Slimewalls® – 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.
Roll-In Construction – Unique 3D structure built around the urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
Extruded, Stone Ground Base – The industry standard extruded 1500 Ptex base material. Durable and easy to repair.
