Product Info

Joining forces with Ride engineers, team rider Marco Feichtner had a hand in refining this wild ride. Delivering versatility for everything the mountain has to offer, the Ride Wild Life Snowboard features Ride s All Mountain Rocker shape with playful LowRize™ rocker in the nose and the grippy stability of the flat zone under foot and through the tail. Complete with Slimewalls® sidewall, Carbon Array 3™ laminates and Fusion 4000™ base, this directional Ride will have you running wild from peak to park, with a responsive feel that won’t let you down.

Product Details

Rocker Type

All Mountain RockerAll Mountain rocker features a directional board profile with LowRize™ rocker in the tip and a stable flat zone under foot and into the tail, ideal for exploring everything the mountain has to offer.

Flex

Feel-O-Meter: 4 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)This is a freestyle all-mountain flex that remains playful enough to destroy the park while allowing you to charge hard down the slopes. 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.

Directional

Core

Performance Tuned™ CoreHigh strength Aspen is combined with bamboo and other lightweight woods to provide the perfect balance of strength and light weight. Ride blends the proven strength of pop and feel of specific woods with added dampening materials and composites by mixing natural wood with high-energy "uppers" and vibration absorbing "downers" to create a core tuned for maximum snap and feel.

Laminates

Carbon Array 3™ LaminateThis power distribution technology provides total board control in every stance location. Widespread carbon stringers placed at the binding zone gather input from any stance width and pressure angles. Rider input is then channeled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control.

Hybrid GlassTriaxial fiberglass on top and biaxial on the base results in balanced torsion and stiffness for better response at speed. Ride's unique glass designs are flatter, more consistent and therefore stronger, without the gaps or stretching of woven glass.

Linear CarbonCarbon is used to increase pop and liveliness with added benefit of strength. Linear Carbon adds more snap for ollie power.

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 4000™ BaseMore durable, harder and faster than extruded bases, Fusion 4000™ is the fastest base material known (sintered). Ride invented and owns the Fusion Base™ Technology in which material is formed together for a solid, fast Ride every time.

Die-Cut BaseBase color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.

    Comments about Ride Wild Life Snowboard 2014:

    The Wildlife is a great directional freeride board. The rocker in the nose and tail help you float in the pow, and the flat camber has plenty of grip when you need it. Compared to the Ride Highlife, the softer flex is much more forgiving on landings and way easier to ollie. So, if you're not a total park-rat and like the charging capabilities of a directional board, but still like to jump and throw tricks... this board's for you.

    Comments about Ride Wild Life Snowboard 2014:

    This is a great board for a great price! I would defiantly recommend getting this board. It is flexible, but not too flexible, not too heavy, but not the lightest board either, and it has the gel side walls, which really help out at the terrain park.

      By far the best board I've had and been able to ride. Conditions were subpar when I went first time with this board but I was able to make the best of it. A great board with a lot of flex for riders who just want an all around board.
