Testers' Ratings

The new shape of the tips brings real comfort. We always benefit from its progressivity in the core, which then becomes powerful when we want some edge. A must for backcountry efficiency!

Jake Blauvelt’s board is worth a bomb of the backcountry. Ace one day, Ace forever! That is why Ride keeps in constant evolution so it can stay ahead of the fierce competition. Its shape has been readjusted without changing its essence too much. It benefits from new shortened and widened tips to keep the same lift while lengthening the edge line. Turn entries are thus progressively moving up, which further improves the very varied and precise driving. It keeps its compact underfoot feature in order to break the ground and smash the off-piste snow, but it cushions better. This makes it a little easier to ride, but without disrupting its remarkable character and its speed rise. The board always brings out power. Its ollie is responsive and very stable in reception and thrust. Still in progress to reach the top!
