Living the life means snowboarding when you want, where you want and most importantly, doing so on the Ride Highlife UL Snowboard. The Highlife has everything you need for all-mountain domination that can show up your friends in the powder too. With the Hybrid All Mountain camber, you have a rockered nose to keep you up and out of the deep snow while the mellow camber underfoot and through the tail gives this board a lively personality. With the stiff flex rating you can push your speed limits - just don't get your pass clipped by ski patrol. The Ride Highlife UL Snowboard is made for the guys who want to rip the entire mountain on a snowboard that keeps up with their big baller-life style.
Hybrid All Mountain This profile features a rockered nose, and a mellow camber zone extending under the feet into the tail.
Flex Rating: 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) A stiff flex is responsive and stable when riding fast.
Directional A directional shape combined with a slight setback is ideal for riding all over the mountain at speed.
UL Core Built to make your ride extremely smooth. The UL Core has tip-to-tail full thickness silencer stringers that are placed strategically within the wood core for high strength and less weight.
Carbon Array 5™ This laminate technology provides total board control in every stance location. Five widespread carbon stringers are placed under the bindings where the rider energy-input is channeled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control.
Silencers 5™ Dampeners These dampeners filter out vibrations from Ride's carbon laminates for a super smooth, snappy ride.
Pop Glass Carbon fibers stitched into the glass provide extra pop without adding extra stiffness.
Popwalls™ + Slimewalls® Ride's exclusive sidewall combo combines layers of smooth urethane Slimewalls® while the contact points have strategically places carbon. This enhances the board's responsiveness and stability while being extremely durable.

Die-Cut Base Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
Rockwell 48C Edges
Membrain® Top Sheet This top sheet is extremely lightweight but maintains a smooth feel by infusing urethane into fabric.

Comments about Ride Highlife UL Snowboard 2016:
This board is a direct replacement for my Ride Yukon in a 169W. That was my favorite powder board. The HL is lighter and slightly more aggressive while still maintaining the pop and carvability of the Yukon. I'm a big guy and I need a board that will take the abuse. At 6'3" and 240lbs with a size 14 boot, there aren't many options for me. The High Life Wide is perfect! I do wish however, that they continued to make the 172W version for 2016. Not enough big guys shredding the mountain I guess.....
