A for aluminium, 6 for medium flex. Ride are keeping their binding names simple and to the point. Although perhaps intimidatingly dull in the world of snowboard industry names, the lack of useless buzzwords like “flight” (the most overused name in snowboard product design) actually creates a refreshingly simple system for choosing your bindings.
The Letter = the construction materials (A for aluminium, C for Composite). The Number = the flex rating. Honestly, it’s a doddle and makes shopping simpler for those looking for either their first bindings or someone making a specific change to their quiver. Despite the simple name, these bindings are packed with tech and available in 3 different colours: Black, White and Olive.
“A for aluminium, 6 for medium flex”
Who Is The Ride A-6 For?
If you’re an intermediate rider looking to get your first setup then this might be the perfect option to help your progression across the whole mountain while you figure out your preferred niche. But sitting in the middle of the flex range, with a performance focused aluminium frame these are also a great option for any riders looking for a reliable, “all-mountain” binding.
With enough flex to bone out some grabs in the park and a nice, responsive feel you’ll be as comfortable in the park as the powder.
