DIRECTIONAL HYBRID CAMBER:
A directional shape with a hybrid profile that has more camber than rocker.
ELLIPTICAL PROGRESSIVE SIDECUT:
Designed exclusively for the Commissioner, this sidecut combines tight elliptical curvature at the tip and tail to provide low-speed initiation and response with a larger radial section between the feet for high-speed stability and tracking.
100% lightweight Paulownia wood for maximum performance.
High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
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.
This totally unique sidewall combines layers of Slimewalls® material and carbon strategically placed at the inserts out to the contact points in the tip and tail on a twin, and the back inserts to the contact points in the tail on a directional board. This exclusive tech enhances the charging rider’s experience as we have moved the carbon pop construction to the outside edge for better stability and enhanced response.
CARBON ARRAY LAMINATES:
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. Offered in two levels of technology, 3 & 5.
SILENCER 5 LAMINATES:
Specially designed urethane layers purifying the response from our Carbon Array™ 5 by filtering out vibration for a super smoothed-out, yet snappy feeling.
ALUMINUM / CARBON TOP SHEET:
Racing inspired technology that balances the strength and damping abilities of anodized Titanal aluminum with the stiffness and rebound properties of woven carbon fiber. These two materials have been specifically designed together to improve the board’s edge hold, turning power, and overall speed while reducing weight.
CARBON INFUSED GLASS FIBERGLASS:
90° Carbon fibers stitched into the glass. Extra pop and response, without adding extra stiffness.
