Product Info

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.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Twin RockerTwin 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

Flex

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.

Shape

TwinCompletely symmetrical with identical tip and tail measurements and flex pattern

Core

Foundation Tuned™ CoreTip-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.

Laminates

Biaxial Glass90° 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.

Sidewalls

Slimewalls® SidewallRide'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.

Base

Fusion 1500™ BaseThe 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.

Edges

Cleave Edge™ SteelNearly 50% more steel delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.

Binding Compatibility

2 x 4 Inserts

Comments about Ride Kink Snowboard 2014:

This board is great for the park or freestyle riding. I'm an intermediate rider and have rode an all mountain board My whole life, so it was a bit hard to get use to how sensitive this board is, but I love it. It makes me want to go to the park and get better.

Comments about Ride Kink Snowboard 2014:

I'm a solid carver and rider and was starting to get into doing tricks and riding the park so I wanted to get a board that would suit that riding style more for not too much money. The Ride kink fit the bill perfectly. It wasn't too expensive, has lots of flex and is more lightweight than my regular board. It's been helpful riding on it to improve my jumps and spins.

Comments about Ride Kink Snowboard 2014:

It's made for urban stuff and that's what its good for. I bought it for that and I am very happy, but don't buy this and think you're gonna be charging double blacks. The base is sticky and slow and it carves like you're riding a wet noodle.

Butters are amazeballs and its sweet for jibbing. Would recommend for other backyard jibbers
