Product Info

Hard charging all mountain riders gravitate toward the Ride Highlife UL Snowboard. It’s more intoxicating than any drug you can drum up. The Highlife UL utilizes Ride’s Popwalls™ technology for energy and edgehold. The Hybrid All Mountain rocker offers grip that will never let you down but doesn’t sacrifice float in the deep stuff. The Ride Highlife UL Snowboard is for strong riders who go fast and push it all over the hill.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Hybrid All MountainFeatures rocker in the nose and a level micro-camber zone extending under the feet through the tail. Built for hard-charging riders that demand superior grip, stability, and responsive performance.

Flex

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)9, designed for hard-chargers who want to tear up the whole mountain, the Ride Highlife UL Snowboard combines precise carving capability with effortless float in powder

Core

Silencer™ 5Purifies the response from the Pop Glass, Carbon Arrays and Linear reinforcements by filtering out vibration for a super smoothed-out, snappy core. Offered in two levels of technology: 5 & 7. Ride blends the proven strength, pop and feel of wood with added dampening materials and composites. Mixing natural wood with high-energy "uppers" and vibration absorbing "downers" creates a core tuned for maximum snap and feel.

Ultra Light CoreBuilt to smooth the ride and lighten the load

Laminates

Pop Glass90° Carbon fibers stitched into the glass for extra pop, without adding extra stiffness. Ride takes stitched glass to new levels and tailors it to each boards needs. The unique glass designs are flatter and more consistent; therefore they are stronger with no gaps or stretching as can be found in woven glass.

Sidewalls

NEW Pop Walls™This totally unique sidewall combines layers of Slimewall® 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. The new and exclusive tech enhances the charging riders’ experience as we have moved the carbon pop construction to the outside edge for better stability and enhanced response.

Base

Ultra Light BaseOne of the lightest and fastest sintered bases around.

Edges

Ultra Light SteelOffers an ultra-light and durable edge

Topsheet

Membrain®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 lightweight, this process also allows artists to push the boundaries when it comes to graphics by utilizing the textures and aesthetics associated with a variety of fabrics.

Additional Features

Carbon Array 5™Has carbon stringers placed in the binding zones to focus energy and ensure precise response.

Binding Compatibility

2 x 4 Inserts

Rides best in the groomers! You can feel the crisp cuts in each carve. The board is extremely fast. Only advance riders would appreciate the precision and feel of the board. Higly recommended.

    Comments about Ride Highlife UL Snowboard 2013:

    The Ride highlife board is a hard charger. Great at speed and holds an edge. The rocker in the tip cuts out all the chatter. The tail is stiff with good pop. It has micro camber which lets you hold an edge at speed. This is not a beginner board. This is an all mountain machine. I have not tried it any significant powder, but it seems like it would preform great.

      This is a good all mountaun board. It is a bit stiff but can flat out run and carve great turns. It is much less playfull than my Ride Machete but is really fun in its own way. I let my nieghbor take it for a day and he said it may finally get him to try something other than Burton.
