They say: Pledging all-round performance.
We say: The ‘LowPro Rocker’ profile on this lifts the nose up for extra float in the powder, while the tail sits flat on the snow for better edge control when carving. That should be enough to tell you this board is aimed at freeride chicks, but although it’s not built for jibbing, it also handles the rest of the mountain pretty well.
Tester says: Great board for going fast! Really easy to get used to.

- History lesson: Now one of the best-known brands in snowboarding, Ride was founded in 1992. Tim Pogue, a former Burton employee, joined forces with Jamie Salter – of the now sadly defunct Kemper snowboards – and a third friend Roger Madison to work on a new project. Their vision struck a chord with riders both in the states and in Europe who were looking an alternative to the super-sized ski brands that dominated the market. Ride’s spectacular early success drove the company’s founders to take it public in 1994. Since then it has grown steadily.
- Ridden by: Shredders who want to be alternative without going all the way. Riding Ride makes you look less like your dad kids!
