15/16 Ride Lil Buck
Nothing is unattainable with the twin rocker shape opening up relaxed turns, landings of seismic proportions, and presses that make gymnasts cringe. You’ll be taking park laps without sweating board damage thanks to Slimewalls® Sidewall Technology, allowing the board to absorb sidewall impacts instead of simply defending against them. The Buckwild is reinforced with a glass laminate and carbon stringers for durability and control for freestyle domination. You’ll be wylin’ on a whole new level with the Ride Buckwild Snowboard.
ROCKER TYPE: Twin Rocker – This twin shape has minimal rocker featuring a long, stable flat zone that extends well beyond the inserts into the tip and tail.
FLEX: Feel-O-Meter: 4 (1 Soft – 10 Stiff) – This is a freestyle all-mountain flex that remains playful enough to destroy the park while allowing you to charge hard down the slopes. Ride’s Feel-O-Meter rating is adjusted year to year to align with current industry standards. A board unchanged from last year may receive a new feel number this year if the industry scale shifts.
SHAPE: Twin – Completely symmetrical with identical tip and tail measurements and flex pattern
CORE: Pop Rods® 2.0 Core – Ride’s Pop Rods® give already fun and playful boards the added liveliness to set them apart from the competition. Using strategic placement in the boards tip and/or tail, this technology adds pop without stiffness generally, associated with snappy boards. Made up of flat carbon rods that wrap a urethane slime-core, Pop Rods® have carbon for massive pop and a slime-core to smooth out the landing.
LAMINATES: Hybrid Glass – Triaxial on top, biaxial on base, balanced torsion and stiffness for better response with speed.
Carbon Array 3™ – This power distribution technology provides total board control in every stance location. 3 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.
SIDEWALLS: Slimewalls® Sidewall – Ride’s exclusive Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the urethane in Slimewalls® smooths the interaction with the snow, wood or metal surfaces you may Ride on. On top of all that, these babies are the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding and virtually indestructible.
BASE: Fusion 4000™ Base – The sintered base makes for a durable and fast ride.
Die-Cut Base – Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
EDGES: Cleave Edge™ – Nearly 50% more steel delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.
