Ride Helix Men's Snowboard
The Helix offers our most aggressive camber profile for the riders demanding a precise and crisp ride. The Helix is at home in the big line of the park and on firm snow. The camber provides stability for jumping as well as aggressive high speed turns. Asymmetric shaping improves heelside turn initiation and control with different radii for the heel and toeside edges. Carbon Array 3™ provides extra pop without adding stiffness. With a named rooted in the exciting world of science and tech, you’re probably already sold, but the Helix is actually a performance-focused twin suited for intermediate to advanced riders looking for hard snow performance in a snappy, predictable twin shape.
TWIN HYBRID CAMBER:
A true twin shape hybrid profile that has more camber than rocker.
Blending of three radii to improve turn initiation/exit while providing the best grip possible. This design is uniquely formulated for each model based on its shape and riding style.
High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.
RIDE’s Slimerods® give already fun and playful boards the added liveliness to set them apart from other boards. Using strategic placement in the boards tip and/or tail, this technology adds pop without the stiffness generally associated with snappy boards. Made up of flat carbon rods that wrap a urethane slime-core, Slimerods® have carbon for massive pop and a slime-core to smooth out the landing. Available in 2 levels: Slimerods® 1.0 & 2.0.
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.
IMPACT PLATES LAMINATES:
Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels, Single and Double.
CARBON ARRAY LAMINATES:
This power distribution technology provides total board control in every stance location. Widespread carbon stringers placed at the binding zone gather input from any stance width and all pressure angles. Rider input is then channeled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control. Offered in two levels of technology, 3 & 5.
Unique 3D structure built around our urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
Triaxial on top, biaxial on base; balanced torsional flex and stiffness for better response with speed.
