This is a board for the rider that wants something unique, fun, and capable in all conditions. I would say my favorite two categories on this board are carving and park. If you are looking to add a specialty board to the quiver or just find something different for a daily driver, this snowboard fits the bill. At the end of the day, I can say with confidence you’re going to be stoked on the Warpig.
The Ride Kink is known for being an excellent jib board, and the 2017 model stays true to that essence. Ride added some camber to this board since I last rode it (in 2015), which provides noticeably more pop and stability; this really boosts its performance outside of the park. The highlight on this board for me is how well it is able to carve with speed yet still provide a great buttering and jibbing experience.
If you’re looking for a powerful, lively snowboard that’s just as capable sending giant kickers in the park as attacking the mountain at full speed, the Helix has got you covered. Check out our full review of the Ride Helix snowboard.
Ride did a really great job complimenting the camber profile of the Machete with the addition of several carbon stringers. The board felt pretty stiff without bindings, although it ended up being a playful ride on snow. It surprised me by dishing out a lot more pop than I thought could come out of this flat camber snowboard. Check out the full review.
