Lowrize™

Lowrize™

A twin rockered shape that just lifts the contact points out of the snow and has a nearly flat zone under foot.

Membrain®

Membrain®

Weighing less than half of traditional plastic top sheets, Membrain® maintains a smooth feel by infusing urethane into fabric. Along with pushing limits in the world of lightweight, this process also allows us to push the boundaries when it comes to graphics by utilizing the textures and aesthetics associated with a variety of fabrics.

Slimewalls®

Slimewalls®

Ride’s exclusive Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the urethane in Slimewalls® smoothes the interaction with the snow, wood or metal surfaces you may Ride on. On top of all that, these babies are virtually indestructible, the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding.

LSD

LSD

All LSD board shapes feature a narrower waist width, a ladies specific flex pattern, sidecut and finely tuned rocker profile.

        Comments about Ride Snowboards Compact:

        I worked in a ski shop and could try all of the boards they carried. Once I rode the ride compact, I never went back to another board! I love the slimewall edges, it holds turns beautifully. All round great board. Only thing I could say otherwise, for powder days I grab a board with more rocker. Thanks RIDE!

              I bought the 2010\2011 modul of the Ride Compact womens snowboard in early December of 2011. It's been a great board, I feel that it has helped me improve! It is great for alll mountain freestyle and the park. It did good on pretty advanced terrain and a veriety of conditions. Ice is it weak piont, it performed ok on ice though. It really is a smooth ride, even in powder. Good board for the park, primarily jumps. It scratched up on my 4th day out on the slopes, which was dissapionting. Overall though, awesome board!

                  Comments about Ride Snowboards Compact:

                  I have a 2010 Ride Compact, and it is definitely the best board I have ever owned. It pops very well off jumps, grinds well on rails, and holds up well at high speeds for such a flexible board. It also holds butters for a very long time. And another upside: the graphics are amazing!!! You can't see it on the computer, but the membrane in the top sheet makes the board sparkle in the sun. SUCH a cool board!

                  I love this board!

                  But it gets damaged quite easily...Topsheet is curling up on the side. And this after one week of boarding and being extra carefull with my new board.

                  But aside from this awesome board!

                    When I first got this board, I was like "This is the one!" but it became a problem because the first one I received had messed up holes on the board itself, so I went back to the store the next day and got an exchange, and everything has been perfect from day one. I ride a 147, and let me say it was an amazing day other there! I got so much better at carving and just being able to go fast again. THANK YOU RIDE.

                    fyi - whats with the whole "made in china"??
