Established in 1992, Ride Snowboards have been producing top quality snowboarding gear, both hardware and outwear, for almost 20 years now. With some classic boards under their belt and an array of top riders getting buckwild for them, Ride are up at the top of the pile when it comes to quality snowboard companies.
This year team rider Jake Blauvelt has his own pro model, the Berzerker. The construction was done specifically for him, with rocker in the tail and nose and a set back camber making it perfect for his all-mountain freestyle riding. This set back camber also means you get loads of power out of turns as well as good edge control on all snow conditions. The graphics are also super nice on this playful and easy riding all-mountain freestyle board.
Also new in the board department is the Crush, which is an awesome looking park board that features a Lowrize rocker. This rocker basically means that you have a minimal height rocker in the front and back of the board which allows for a super fun and playful ride. Along with its crazy fluro green colour scheme this looks like a super fun board to ride and although being most at home in the park, it is still perfectly comfortable riding the piste all day. A really rad stick.
The Capo is an all new binding for the 2011/2012 season featuring a new chassis that gives awesome boot-to-binding customisation with featherlight weight. And continuing the neon green radness is their new boot, the Hi-Phy, another all-new product with a lightweight one-piece construction.
Peep it all.
