Ride 2012/2013 Snowboards Preview | Product Focus

We had arranged to meet up with Ride’s Hannes at 4pm on the penultimate day of our time at the ISPO tradeshow in Munich. After briefly greeting Hannes he pointed us in the direction of the free bar and told us to get a good spot in front of the stage. “You’re just in time for the show!” Ride’s burlesque themed booth, hefty bouncer guy on the door and the fact that there had been a peep show at last year’s stand gave us a pretty good idea of what to expect. After enjoying the performance within the packed out booth of noisy, wolf-whistling guys (and girls, but mainly guys), we caught up with Hannes again and got down to business, so to speak.

Hannes showed us three of next season’s snowboards including the new Buckwild, Machete GT and always-popular DH:

Buckwild

The Ride Buckwild is Sebastien Toutant’s board of choice for slopestyle and that alone should be enough to give you to a pretty good idea of its characteristics. Designed for the advanced freestyle rider and charging around the mountain, the board has a mid flex and a flat profile through the majority of the board and a slight rocker in the nose and tail.  This brings stability with a touch of playfulness thanks to the rocker.  Urethane based ‘Slimewalls’ provide impact protection and vibration dampening to result in a smoother ride. Carbon arrays around the inserts and extending to the tip and tail, along with ‘Pop Rods 2.0’, increase pop and response. With a super fast sintered base featuring a quality graphic claiming that ‘we are having more fun than you,’ the Buckwild is both bright and bold in its styling. We reckon that if it’s good enough for Seb Toots, it’s good enough for you!

Machete GT

The Machete GT is a new addition to the Ride line up and represents a souped up version of the standard Machete. Where the Machete features a flat section beneath the feet, the GT uses micro-camber for added snap out of turns and responsiveness. This transitions to a low-rising rocker in the nose and tail for extra floatiness in the deep stuff. The GT also features Ride’s all new ‘Popwalls’ sidewalls which adds carbon into the standard urethane Slimewall for all of the dampening properties of Slimewalls with added stiffness to improve edge hold and power transmission. The Machete GT is perfect for the intermediate to advanced all-mountain freestyle rider looking to go faster and bigger.

DH

The DH is a Ride classic and remains one of our most searched for snowboards on Mpora Gear. Ride have gone with the ‘if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it’ attitude with this one and construction wise, the DH remains the same as this season’s. Built for advanced all mountain riders, the DH is the only board in the line featuring traditional positive camber. The DH has a stiff flex and has all of the tech you would expect from a high-end all-mountain charger. From the 85A Slimewalls, Pop Rods 2.0 and Carbon Array 3 stringers to the Fusion 4000 sintered base, the list simply goes on and on.

Big thanks to Hannes for going through the boards with us and keep an eye out for a future video and post looking at some of the new Ride bindings. Don’t forget to check out this season’s Ride gear, as there is a shed load of bargains to be had!
