Some boards that profess to be ‘all-mountain’ can be a bit on the mellow side, so as not to put off the less experienced rider. The problem is often worse where women’s boards are concerned, as they tend to be softer still as a rule. If that’s got you down, then here’s something to cast your eye over: the Ride Hellcat women’s snowboard.
As the name suggests, the Ride Hellcat is designed for the more adventurous riders. With that in mind, several steps have been taken to ensure it can go the distance. Under each foot is a double-layered plate for absorbing heavy impacts, and the urethane sidewalls have been reinforced too.

As for the core, a combination of Aspen, paulownia and bamboo makes for a tough – yet light – foundation, and the edges contain more steel than the industry average, making them harder to crack on a rail or a rock.
