Why we chose the Ride Warpig Snowboard: This porktastic party wagon is an institution unto itself.
While the rest of the world obsesses over tall, dark and handsome, the last few years have seen the snowboard industry become infatuated with short fattys. Volume shifted decks are all the rage and the popularity of Ride’s Pig line is testament to that fact. The Ride Warpig is back at it, primed and ready for your all-out mountain assault. It’s an access all areas pass for intermediate riders looking for a ride that’s as playful as it is powerful. Unsheath this porksword and get ready to go HAM.
When you get a fresh dump of snow, and you’ve only brought one board with you the Warpig will really save your bacon. The sheer width, 10mm taper and rockered nose profile of the Warpig give you all the float you’d expect from a traditional powder board, but the volume shifted shape means you’re riding a far shorter deck, increasing your manoeuvrability tenfold. Deep days and steep days are on the cards with this porcine playmate.
“Unsheath this porksword and get ready to go HAM”
While the shape of the Warpig might give the impression that it’s a pure powder ripper, what’s under the hood gives it a surprising all-mountain edge. Three carbon stringers crisscross underfoot channelling your energy directly out the contact points for a lightning fast response. The tight sidecut and increased underfoot width give the ability to dig trenches on piste, getting right up onto your edges and locking in for some mega elbows down carves without catching toes.
The mid flex and the fully rockered nose open up a buffet of buttering and pressing, and a flat midsection keeps you nice and stable on the in run. Bamboo runs through the core offering extra snap and pop for that added pep in your step when you’re taking off. With the blunted off shape of the nose and tail bringing down the swing weight down you’re super maneuverable in the air to bolster your alpine acrobatics.
