Camber puts pop into skis\/snowboards and gives skiers\/boarders good edge control while carving turns
The flex pattern is balanced, leaving the board to respond in the same manner forward as backward.
If park riding is in your DNA then the Ride Helix Snowboard ought to be in your arsenal. The Helix's asymmetrical shape gives you incredible control over your heelside turns, while the Carbon Slimerods® 2.0 layup yields a wicked combination of pop, response, and vibration dampening. Precise, powerful, and proven to rise to the occasion when hot laps through the pipe and XL jump line are going down, the Ride Helix Snowboard takes a new-age scientific approach to riding that's quickly upping the ante of what to expect from a high-performance park board!
Twin Hybrid Camber – A true twin shape hybrid profile that has more camber than rocker.
Response – Aggressive
Asymmetric Shaping – Asymmetric sidecut shaping improves heelside turn initiation and control. Offering perfect balance while turning through different radii for the heel and toe side edges, the board just feels right!
Quadratic Sidecut – Blending of three radii to improve turn initiation/exit while providing the best grip possible. This design is uniquely formulated for each model based on its shape and riding style.
Performance™ Core – High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.
Carbon Array™ 3 – This power distribution technology provides total board control in every stance location. 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.
Hybrid Glass – Triaxial on top, biaxial on base; balanced torsional flex and stiffness for better response with speed.
Carbon Slimerods® – RIDE's Slimerods® give already fun and playful boards the added liveliness to set them apart from other boards. Using strategic placement in the board's tip and/or tail, this technology adds pop without the stiffness generally associated with snappy boards. Made up of flat carbon rods that wrap a urethane slime-core, Slimerods® have carbon for massive pop and a slime-core to smooth out the landing.
Double Impact Plates – Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most.
Roll-In Slimewall® – Unique 3D structure built around the urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
Sintered 4000 – High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
Standard Steel Edge – Rockwell 48 C. Ride's Austrian-made steel wraps the entire perimeter of your board for the best delam protection around.
Standard Topsheet – Durable urethane topsheet material with graphics only RIDE can bring you.
