Product Info

Ride Kink Snowboard 2011: Now featuring Ride s new ProRize™ shape for big-time landing stability and pop, the definitive freestyle deck known as a team favorite. Built to withstand numerous beatings, this park destroying twin also features Ride s durable Cleave Edge™ and impact absorbing 85A Slimewalls®.

Product Details

Flex

Flex Rating: 4 (1 Soft – 10 Stiff)

2x4 inserts dial in your stance for the option that feels best. The Ride Kink Snowboard is built for the advanced, freestyle-focused rider looking for a board he can slay through the park all day long.

Construction and Core

All Ride boards feature Thin Construction with tapered tips and tails, reduced swing weight, enhanced tip flex and the sidewall runs past the effective edge. Biaxial glass is fun and forgiving and the Foundation core is tip to tail wood with proven durability that retains camber and flex. The standard top sheet is durable with graphics only Ride can bring you.

Sidewalls, Edges and Base

85A Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, and absorb impacts rather than defending against them

The Cleave Edge™ offers nearly 50% more steel, and delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii

The Fusion 1500 base is an industry standard, wax absorbing and easy to repair.

Shape and Rocker

A true twin with ProRize™ shaping, demanded by the Pros and designed for competition, has a long stable flat zone for landing stability and pop. The Ride Kink Snowboard is built for going big and locking in landings without the fear of rocker washout.

Comments about Ride Kink Snowboard 2011:

Great board. I used to own a stiff Unity board, loved it while I used it, but decided I needed something a little more fun to jib around on. Found 155 Ride Kink on sale and gave it a try. It was a great decision. Super flexy, but not to the point where its a noodle. Feels incredible to do nose/tail presses. Plus nose/tail blocks are a piece of cake now! If your lookin for a fun board to jib around on in the park and to hit those nice 50 ft kickers this is the best board for the $$ period.

    Comments about Ride Kink Snowboard 2011:

    The pro rize camber is perfect for park rats! Locking on to those boxes and rails is that much easier. Great board for pushing your park riding to the next level.

    A little chattery at high speeds but it's a park board. Still works great in pow wow and mountain riding.

      Comments about Ride Kink Snowboard 2011:

      I got this board for a birthday gift. I have used it at least 2x per week,and I thought I was really going to enjoy it this season. However, the sides have split and warped. I had to have it repaired 2x since December and it's only February 2nd! For the price, the board should hold up better. I wouldn't recommend purchasing this board. I will have to look for a new board for next season...
