2012 Ride Compact Snowboard

Ride Compact ($350)

Big features packed into a price-friendly, poppy board. The Compact comes loaded with durable Cleave Edges (50-percent thicker steel edges) and gummy urethane sidewalls to take on big jib bumps. Its twin, rocker shape has lifted contact points and a sturdy flat zone for hook-free turns. The urethane-infused fiberglass topsheet helps to eliminate chatter for an overall velvety glide.

Tester Feedback:

“Stable, on the stiffer side, and good for jumps. A lot of pop! You could get really good at snowboarding on this thing.”

Sizes: 139, 143, 147, 150, 153
