The Ride Superpig is a board that is built for performance, both on and off the piste. This is the patriarch of the Pig family, the big daddy, El Capitán of the bacon brigade, aimed at strong riders looking to charge hard and fast. The Superpig is a step up on all levels from the classic Warpig, offering a more powerful, aggressive and responsive ride.
Thanks to their superior olfactory senses domestic pigs have long been used by wily farmers to sniff out expensive truffles, but this Superpig is more geared up for sniffing out powder stashes and pillow drops. The super wide nose, with its lengthy rocker can smell untouched bowls a mile off and can float through the deepest snow with ease.

Not just a board for the deep days, the Superpig really excels on piste. When you’re going Mach 10 you want the reassurance that your snowboard isn’t gonna let you down. The Superpig with its camber dominance, stiffer flex, and carbon infused laminates is always primed and ready to go, you can feel confident to really dial into turns knowing the Superpig won’t skid out through the arc or fall victim to chop and chunder. Carbon stringers run diagonally across the board underfoot, transferring energy out the contact points and increasing edge to edge response where you need it most.
You could even take the Superpig for a spin to whet your freestyle whistle, less so small jibby manoeuvres, but it’ll rip on larger features thanks to its stable profile and bamboo induced pop.
“The Ride Superpig is one short fatty you’ll be proud to be taking home this season, it floats like a butterfly, and stings like a supercharged sledgehammer”
The Superpig is a board that you’re gonna throw around through a multitude of conditions, and Ride have suped up this hog to withstand the gnarliest beatings. Double Impact Plates sit directly below your bindings strengthening up the area, Urethane Slimewalls absorb impacts and soak up chatter, and Ride’s Performance Core blends three different types of wood for superior strength to weight ratio.
When all is said and done the Ride Superpig is one short fatty you’ll be proud to be taking home this season, it floats like a butterfly, and stings like a supercharged sledgehammer.
