Heading into its 21st season, Ride Snowboards represents the quintessential qualities of snowboarding: a passion for riding and continuous innovation in order to make the sport more epic, fun and memorable. Located in Seattle, Washington, Ride has come a long way from its initial introduction of just four boards back in 1992. Now offering boards, boots and bindings, as well as apparel and accessories, Ride Snowboards has truly made a name for itself in the snowboarding community and beyond.
This season from Ride, you can expect ground-breaking technology in a stand-out design. Look for new Pop Walls, a revolutionary sidewall combining layers of Ride’s exceptional urethane Slimewall® and carbon, giving you enhanced response and better stability, as well as smoother riding and outstanding durability. In addition, the new All Mountain Rocker directional profile offers LowRize™ rocker in the tip and a stable flat zone under foot for all mountain riders looking for float and stable landings. For female riders, Ride introduces the new Right Sized board shape, exclusive in the women’s Baretta snowboard, opening up a world of sizing options for a broader range of lady shredders. Check out these new technologies and more, featured in these boards from Ride Snowboards’ 2013 line-up:
In the world of bindings, Ride Snowboards 2013 unveils the new Slimeback DE, which utilizes urethane materials to absorb shock, dampen vibrations and smooth out your ride. You’ll find the same technology in the Ride women’s bindings in the women’s Slimeback SB. Also, be on the lookout for new Flipside Mount Straps and the new Astroglyde LT ratchet lever, featuring ultra lightweight materials and a progressive design that lets you strap in and make easy adjustments for all-day comfort on the mountain.
