With a softer flex and rocker shape the Compact is easy to RIDE and all-around fun. If ripping around the entire mountain is your idea of awesome, then the Compact is your kind of deck. You won’t get hung up on slush or chop with built-in hook-free control. Urethane Slimewalls® make for less chatter, and a smoother ride overall.
Base + Edges
Fusion 1500 Base:
The industry standard extruded base material. Good wax absorption and easy to repair.
Ride's exclusive slimewalls are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, 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.
Construction + Core
Ride blends the proven strength, pop and feel of wood with added dampening materials and composites. Mixing natural wood with high-energy "uppers" and vibration absorbing "downers" creates a core tuned for maximum snap and feel.
Tip-to-tail Aspen wood core with proven durability that retains pop and flex.
90 degree and 0 degree angles, fun and forgiving lay up that provide consistent pop while still being soft.
Shape + Flex
A true twin shape that is flat between the inserts with rocker throughout the tip and tail.
