Product Info

The Ride Helix Snowboard, named after a synonym for a spiral, is a board so techy and sciency, you'll expect it to turn down the mountain for you. And sometimes, it almost feels like it does. This all-mountain twin features not just an asymmetrical shape, but also quadratic sidecut, meaning that on each of the two unique edges, there are three unique turning radii, for a grand total of six meticulously designed sidecuts circling the board like electrons circling the nucleus of a carbon atom. Additional carbon atoms can be found making up the Carbon Silmerods built into the Helix's tip and tail. The end result of all of this crazy tech is a board that's snappy and responsive, yet criminally smooth, handling any turn shape with robotic efficiency.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Twin Hybrid CamberA true twin shape hybrid profile that has more camber than rocker.

Flex

Aggressive Response

Shape

Asymmetrical ShapingAsymmetric sidecut shaping improves heelside turn initiation and control. Offering perfect balance while turning through different radii for the heel and toe side edges, the board just feels right!

Quadractic SidecutBlending of three radii to improve turn initiation/exit while providing the best grip possible. This design is uniquely formulated for each model based on its shape and riding style.

Core

Performance™ CoreHigh strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.

Carbon Slimerods® 2.0RIDE’s Slimerods® give already fun and playful boards the added liveliness to set them apart from other boards. Using strategic placement in the boards tip and/or tail, this technology adds pop without the stiffness generally associated with snappy boards. Made up of flat carbon rods that wrap a urethane slime-core, Slimerods® have carbon for massive pop and a slime-core to smooth out the landing. Available in 2 levels: Slimerods® 1.0 & 2.0.

Laminates

Carbon Array 3™This 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 all pressure angles. Rider input is then channeled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control. Offered in two levels of technology, 3 & 5.

Double Impact PlatesAdded underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels, Single and Double.

Hybrid GlassTriaxial on top, biaxial on base; balanced torsional flex and stiffness for better response with speed.

Sidewalls

Slimewalls®RIDE’s exclusive Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the urethane in Slimewalls® smoothes the interaction with the snow, wood or metal surfaces you may ride on. On top of all that, these babies are virtually indestructible, the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding.

Roll-In ConstructionUnique 3D structure built around the urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.

Base

Sintered, Stone Ground Race BaseHigh-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.

Binding Compatibility

2 x 4 Inserts
