The Ride Compact Snowboard is built for beginners and park riders alike. Featuring a hook-free and super smooth feel provided by Ride s LowRize™ rocker shape and urethane Slimewalls® technology, the Compact is a playful freestyle twin board that can also take on the entire mountain. Versatile, forgiving, and durable, the Ride Compact is ready to Ride
LowRise™ Rocker LowRise™ rocker just slightly lifts the contact points out of the snow and has a nearly flat zone under foot. These twin rides are full of smooth-riding fun.
Feel-O-Meter: 2 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) This is a super soft playful flex designed to be forgiving. Ride's Feel-O-Meter rating is adjusted year to year to align with current industry standards. A board unchanged from last year may receive a new feel number this year if the industry scale shifts.
Twin Completely symmetrical with identical tip and tail measurements and flex pattern
LSD Shaping (Ladies Specific Design) Ride's Total Shaping approach has unveiled ways of crafting more customized, shapely women's products. LSD designed boards feature a custom waist width and unique flex pattern designed specifically for the female rider. LSD Shaping results in a ladies-specific sidecut built into Ride's finely tuned board profile that works as one dialed package.
Foundation Tuned™ Core Tip-to-tail wood core with proven durability that retains pop and flex: Mixing natural wood with high-energy "uppers" and vibration absorbing "downers" creates a core tuned for maximum snap and feel.
Biaxial Glass 90° and 0° angles are fun and forgiving. Ride's unique glass designs are flatter and more consistent; therefore they are stronger with no gaps or stretching as can be found in woven glass.
Slimewalls® Sidewall Ride's exclusive Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the urethane in Slimewalls® smooths the interaction with the snow, wood or metal surfaces you may Ride on. On top of all that, these babies are the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding and virtually indestructible.
Fusion 1500™ Base The industry standard, it's wax absorbing and easy to repair. Ride invented and owns the Fusion Base™ Technology, in which material is formed together for a solid, fast Ride every time.
Membrain® Top Sheet 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 light weight, this process also allows Ride to push the boundaries when it comes to graphics by utilizing the textures and aesthetics associated with a variety of fabrics.

Comments about Ride Compact Snowboard - Women's 2014:
I used the snowboard on resort slopes from beginner to medium. No problems getting off the chair lift with this board. It is extremely light weight. The first time I road this, I felt like I went from beginner to intermediate. Not excellent for high speeds because since it is pretty flexible, you'll feel some "chatter" (the snow bumps). But, if you're looking to get down intermediate slopes and beginner slopes without falling, and progress your skills, THIS is the board. No joke. I felt confident on this board. Unfortunately, the side of the board tends to ding or something. Not sure if that would affect performance, but I had to give this board an all-star rating regardless because it is THAT amazing. I've never tried riding in deep powder, and of course riding on ice is always scary.. but I haven't had a chance to ride this board on either of those two surfaces. This board is literally a dream-board for beginners and intermediate. Would be PERFECT for the park and for casually gliding down the mountain slopes in a resort.
