17/18 Ride Compact
The Compact returns for another season with an all-new shape, but still sports the versatility that riders keep coming back for. Rocker makes riding powder effortless and also allows for a catch-free ride in firmer snow conditions. The board profile flattens out underfoot for a stable flat zone that provides consistent tracking for added confidence while you’re riding fast. The softer flex makes initiating turns easier and Slimewalls to absorb vibration and added durability. The Compact combines performance features with a soft-flexing feel for a board that is fun in any condition, for any ability.

RIDE’s exclusive Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them.

On top of all that, these babies are virtually indestructible, the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding.
