The Ride Hellcat Snowboard is the cat's meow in the 2014 women's lineup. This is a hard charging high-performing snowboard designed for the risky ladies that ride better than the dawgs on the mountain. The Hellcat features Ride s Hybrid LowRize™ shape that gives you rocker in the tip and tail, and micro-camber under your feet to provide you with the perfect balance of pop, snap and response. Featuring Ride s innovative Popwalls™ sidewalls, the Hellcat provides excellent grip and stability on almost any snow condition. Raise hell on the hills whether you're riding the park or the groomers on the Ride Hellcat Snowboard.
Hybrid LowRize™ Hybrid LowRize™ amps up the performance by adding a level micro-camber zone between the feet designed to enhance response and pop, while maintaining that playful, surfy feel. The best of both worlds!
Feel-O-Meter: 3 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) This freestyle flex is great for jibs butters and getting airborne. 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
Right Sized This unique Right Sized shape opens up a world of board size opportunity to a broader range of women riders. This exclusive board profile allows ladies to ride a longer women's model with more float, perfect for big mountain charging and pow, or ride shorter without the toe drag if that better suits your style. Ultimately it gives you the freedom to ride what size is right for you regardless of your boot size.
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.
Performance Tuned™ Core High strength Aspen is combined with bamboo and other lightweight woods to provide the perfect balance of strength and light weight. Ride blends the proven strength of pop and feel of specific woods with added dampening materials and composites by mixing natural wood with high-energy "uppers" and vibration absorbing "downers" to create a core tuned for maximum snap and feel.
Carbon Array 5™ Laminate This power distribution technology provides total board control in every stance location with widespread carbon stringers placed at the binding zone to gather input from any stance width and pressure angles. Rider input is then channeled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control.
Hybrid Glass Triaxial fiberglass on top and biaxial on the base results in balanced torsion and stiffness for better response at speed. Ride's unique glass designs are flatter, more consistent and therefore stronger, without the gaps or stretching of woven glass.
Popwalls™ Sidewall This totally unique sidewall combines layers of Slimewalls® material and carbon strategically placed at the inserts out to the contact points in the tip and tail on a twin, and the back inserts to the contact points in the tail on a directional board. This exclusive tech enhances the charging riders' experience as Ride has moved the carbon pop construction to the outside edge for better stability and enhanced response.
Fusion 4000™ Base More durable, harder and faster than extruded bases, Fusion 4000™ is the fastest base material known (sintered). Ride invented and owns the Fusion Base™ Technology in which material is formed together for a solid, fast Ride every time.
Cleave Edge™ Steel Nearly 50% more steel delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.
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.
