One of the main reasons we make this gear guide is to cut through the catalogue waffle and explain exactly what each product has to offer. The guys at Ride rarely serve up their spiel with a straight bat, but in the case of the new Ride Twin Pig snowboard they went fully off the deep end, serving up some incomprehensible yibble about the movie Double Impact starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.
Fortunately, the Ride Twin Pig itself makes a lot more sense; it takes everything people love about the Ride War Pig, and distils it into a more park-friendly design. Not that the original was any slouch in that department, but serious freestyle fiends will appreciate this one’s unique characteristics.
“It’s been built to withstand some abuse in the park”
The Ride Twin Pig is actually an asymmetric rather than true twin, so when you’re lapping the groomers before park o’clock you get the added benefit of a tighter heel edge sidecut. It’s not a deal-breaker, but with a flat base then every little helps when it comes to holding a strong edge.
