Ride Kink Snowboard 2013

Iron out the kinks and let the rest fly with this freestyle favorite. The Ride Kink Snowboard is a park-oriented team favorite with its stable and lively Twin Rocker profile. This medium-flexing board features Ride’s Cleave Edge™ for durability and Slimewalls® for smoothness and power transmission.
Rocker Type
Twin Rocker - This twin shape has minimal rocker featuring a long, stable flat zone that extends well beyond the inserts into the tip and tail. Dialed for hitting features from big booters to rails, and everything in between.
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - 5, a perfect compromise between fun and serious park riding, the Kink Snowboard allows you to enjoy yourself while helping you progress as a rider.
Shape
Thin Con Construction - Features a tapered tip and tail to reduce swing weight, enhanced tip flex, and sidewalls that run past the effective edge.
Sidecut
Twin
Core
Foundation Tuned Core™ - Tip-to-tail wood core with proven durability that maintains pop and flex.
Laminates
Biaxial Glass - 90 degree and 0 degree angles for a fun forgiving ride.
Sidewalls
Slimewalls® - These skate-inspired urethane sidewalls are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impact when it occurs. The urethane gives you smooth interaction with the snow, wood, or metal surfaces. To top it off, Slimewalls® are practically indestructible.
Base
Fusion 1500 Base™ - This extruded base is the industry standard; it quickly absorbs wax and is easy to repair.
Edges
Cleave Edge™ - Nearly 50% more steel delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.
Binding Compatibility
2 x 4 Inserts

Specs

  • Terrain: Freestyle
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker is another variation on the rocker theme that seeks to provide a little more hard snow edgehold and pop than full rocker while retaining ease of turning and float. Performance is between a fully rockered board and a flat board.
  • Flex Rating: Medium
    Medium
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
