Review

This season’s Ride Compact is an all-mountain freestyle snowboard that’s well known for its versatility and built for ladies who want to conquer the slopes this winter. This Ride board has a True Twin shape and a Flat to Rocker profile, which allows it to float nicely though deep powder, ensuring you will glide effortlessly down the mountain. Its soft flex feels playful yet forgiving, ideal for jibbing and progressing your skills. The board’s centered stance will provide the necessary stability, while its lightweight and lively core offers a nice amount of snap an pop. This helps you to manoeuvre easily. The Ride Compact snowboard is a great choice for women who want a long lasting durable board that offers a smooth surfy feel at a great price.
