The MTN Pig is the badass big brother of la familia de Pig. Made for hard charging riders who need something that’ll be able to roll with the punches and deliver a few of its own.

Compared to the infamous Warpig the directional hybrid camber profile gives it a gnarlier on piste performance for when you’re really wanting to turn and burn from first to last lift. It also gives the board an easier pop and allows for livelier edge to edge transitions.

“Urethane Slimewalls work to absorb vibrations and are built to withstand all the wear and tear you can chuck at ‘em”

The blunt, rockered nose and crescent tail complement each other beautifully. With the reduced surface area in the tail keeping it sinking in the chowder, and the floaty nose keeping it skimming over the top of the snow.

Urethane Slimewalls work to absorb vibrations and are built to withstand all the wear and tear you can chuck at ‘em. They’ve added carbon from the inserts out to the contact points as well to increase stability when you’re wanting to hoon it.

What’s that you say? More carbon? Oh, go on then, Ride stitch carbon into the fibreglass to make it even poppier and more responsive without adding shed loads of weight. Carbon stringers run from under each binding over to the opposite contact point for more powerful edge to edge transitions without becoming twitchy.

Tester’s Verdict

Mike BrindleyWhitelines

“Holy moley, this thing is a complete animal. I took it out first thing in the morning and had a whale of a time getting low on some fresh corduroy. It holds an edge exceptionally well through the whole turn. I rode it a little shorter than I generally would, and didn’t have any problems at all with it.

“It holds an edge exceptionally well through the whole turn”

This is a board that really wants to open up and get ridden. I found it a bit skatty at slow speeds, but when going full gas it’s really stable and solid. Only got the chance to ride some pretty tracked powder, but there wasn’t a problem with float despite the shorter length. A great daily driver board for people who love riding fast and hard.”

Tester’s Verdict 2018/19

“The Ride Mountain Pig is a really fun snowboard, with a nice surfy feel in the deeper powdery stuff and great float from the directional tapered shape and the rockered Pig family nose.

“A great daily charger to have in your board bag”

On the harder stuff the underfoot camber was there for you, giving excellent edge hold. The Mountain Pig ate up any terrain from the top to bottom of the mountain, with control and power.

If you ride big-mountain resorts day in day out, the Mountain Pig is a great daily charger to have in your board bag.”
