If you're riding urban rails, fences, and concrete walls more than the friendly slopes of your local resort, then you need the Ride Kink Snowboard. The Kink is a jib stick that's able to destroy urban features and withstand the beating of urban riding. Featuring Ride s Twin Rocker shape designed to provide you with tons of pop and stability on big-time landings, with Ride s Cleave Edge™ and Slimewalls, the Kink is the ultimate Urban Destroyer with incomparable durability.
Twin Rocker Twin rocker is a hook-free twin shape featuring micro rocker combined with a long, stable flat zone that extends beyond the inserts into the tip and tail // Dialed for hitting features from big booters to rails and everything in between
Feel-O-Meter: 2 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) This is a definitive jib flex ready for an urban assault or killing the park. 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
Foundation Tuned™ Core Tip-to-tail wood core with proven durability that retains pop and flex: Mixing natural wood with high-energy "uppers" and vibration absorbing "downers" creates a core tuned for maximum snap and feel.
Biaxial Glass 90° and 0° angles are fun and forgiving. Ride's unique glass designs are flatter and more consistent; therefore they are stronger with no gaps or stretching as can be found in woven glass.
Slimewalls® Sidewall Ride's exclusive Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the urethane in Slimewalls® smooths the interaction with the snow, wood or metal surfaces you may Ride on. On top of all that, these babies are the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding and virtually indestructible.
Fusion 1500™ Base The industry standard, it's wax absorbing and easy to repair. 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.
