17/18 Ride Kink
The Kink is built for serious abuse. The soft flexing twin features hybrid camber, a board profile that understands snowboard satisfaction can only truly be achieved with a little control. Hybrid camber gives you a small amount of rocker under the tip and tail for a catch-free feel at the contact points and camber under foot to give you all the pop and control you need when you want to spank a rail or show the jump line who’s boss. Our Cleave Edge Steel edges are 50% thicker than standard steel edges and when combined with our SlimeWall technology, the Kink pushes snowboard durability to a new level. Always a team favorite, this board will perform on jumps, rails or in the street. The Kink will take all the abuse you can give, and come crawling back for more.

Cleave Edge Steel
THIN CON: ALL RIDE boards feature Thin Construction with tapered tips and tails, reduced swing weight, enhanced tip flex and the sidewall runs past the effective edge.
CLEAVE EDGE™ STEEL: Nearly 50% more steel, delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.
BIAXIAL GLASS: 90° and 0° angles, fun and forgiving.
SINTERED BASE: High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
PERFORMANCE™ CORE: High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.
SLIMEWALLS®: RIDE’s exclusive Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the 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.
ROLL IN SLIMEWALLS®: Unique 3D fiberglass structure built around our urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
IMPACT PLATES: Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strenth and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels – single and double.
STANDARD TOP SHEET: Durable topsheet with graphics only RIDE can bring you.
