If you're taking your snowboarding to the streets, then you need to check out the 2015 Ride Kink Snowboard. With Twin Rocker and a soft flex, the Kink likes to lock into long presses and stomp sketchy landings. The Kink is built to take a beating with Slimewalls®, a Fusion 1500™ Base, and Cleave Edge™ so you can grind it out with the best of them.
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.
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.
Die-Cut Base Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
Cleave Edge™ Nearly 50% more steel delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.
