The Wild Life will domesticate anything the mountain throws your way. An all-mountain, versatile snowboard with a do-everything shape, the Wild Life is stable at high speeds, eases in and out of turns fluidly with a generous, directional rocker in the tip. The Wild Life offers a versatile ride that can cruise the whole mountain and for its price range, packed with features that you would normally find on way more expensive boards. Thanks to the Directional Hybrid Camber profile, the Wild Life will offer float in powder and grippy stability on harder snow.
This board is for all-mountain junkies. If you want a smooth ride with lots of flexibility to get you to the next level, the wildlife is perfect for you.
Directional is the classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition.
The Directional Hybrid Camber profile has an under-foot camber with a large rocker area in the nose. The float of the rockered nose improves manoeuvrability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response.
The soft-medium flex allows for easy turning and ensures a comfortable ride through every terrain, whether it is park, powder or anything in between.
The Performance Core is made of Aspen combined with bamboo and lightweight paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strength and weight. Hybrid Glass is triaxial on top and biaxial on base for balanced torsion and stiffness, which results in a better response. The Carbon 3 Array laminates are widespread carbon stringers placed at the binding zone to gather input from any stance width and all pressure angles. Rider input is then channelled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control. The sintered base is an industry standard for quality base materials. Provides a balance between the speed created by a hard surface and good wax retention. 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. The Impact Plates are added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most.
RIDE was created for the people and is built on technological innovation and superior quality. They work closely with their team of riders on both design and marketing to keep sight of what snowboarding needs. To keep the stoke high and the impact low, RIDE have put several green initiatives in place in the last few years. All baseplates and heel cups are 100% recyclable and the wax used for their boards is 100% biodegradable.
