Ride’s new hybrid twin design is sure to make this board comfortable to ride anything and everything on. Micro-rocker in the tip and tail will give you a lighter-than-air feel when surfing through the pow, and the Pop Rods®/micro-camber underneath your feet will give you that extra pop in the park. This feature-packed hybrid beauty is sure to have you wondering is there’s anything it can’t do.

    Comments about Ride DH2 Snowboard 2012:

    Hey There,
    I have been riding since 1989 and while I still ride park and pipe I first learned how to turn properly before learning any tricks and did some slaloms and boardercross race so my point being.... I know how to put a board on rail!

    I was super sceptical as other boards with any rocker in them just washed out for me on hard pack but man this thing is a ginsu! I weight 190lbs and am 6ft tall and bought the 158 as board for park/hard-pack sessions and for small to medium size turns. It carves super smooth and solidly holds an edge. The long effective edge of the board, 124 for the 158 I think also helps it to ride so well for its length.

    However if you are my weight and can only afford one board (I have a 162 Gnu AG for freeriding) I would go 160 or 162 as I found the 158 a bit short when taking it off a groomed trail in even a little powder (nose diving), plus the being a twin with short lift in the nose as a result did not help!
    If you are an old school guy who wants something that feels like your old camber board you can't go wrong with this board. So yeah, hope this review helps.
    Cheers,
    Roland

      Comments about Ride DH2 Snowboard 2012:

      I've been riding for about 17 years, and I have yet to find a board that has performed for me as well as the Ride Dh2. Having perviously owned a Standard DH, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the hybrid camber did not force the board to lose the pop and stability I was used to. Still solid underfoot like a traditional cambered board, but the lowrise gives float and helps me "cheat" a bit on riding. I've had two knee surgeries, and the slimewalls really help to dampen vibrations, given me a smoother ride. Just about the perfect board!

        Well I thought I was getting into Rocker technology but unfortunately was miss lead a bit by the description. This is a flat board, if not a bit cambered. The rocker part is really hard to get to, still a lot of effort like a regularly cambered board. I'm going for full rocker next season.

              The hybrid camber in this board makes it ride and feel like a regular camber board, but with the float in pow of a reverse camber. If you are a resort rider who takes hot laps in the park, but take it to the backcountry too, this board can handle everything that you can throw it.
