Put your serious self on hold and let loose on the Ride Alter Ego Snowboard. With a directional SplitTail design, this board's personality can favor either hard charging groomers or surfy pow depending on whether you run the tail clipped or unclipped. Some might call it a disorder, but when it comes to snowboarding, the Ride Alter Ego's dual-personality is the real deal!
Directional Hybrid Rocker – A directional shape with a hybrid profile that has more rocker than camber.
Response – Medium
SplitTail™ – SplitTail™ technology allows for changing the flex pattern of your board on the fly. This ability opens up crazy opportunities for inbounds and backcountry riding.
Performance™ Core – High strength Aspen is combined with bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.
Double Impact Plates – Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels -- single and double.
Carbon Array™ 3 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 -- 3 and 5.
Hybrid Glass – Triaxial on top, biaxial on base; balanced torsional flex and stiffness for better response with speed.
Roll In Slimewalls® – Unique 3D structure built around Ride's urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
Carbon Slimewalls® – 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 riders' experiences as Ride moved the carbon pop construction to the outside edge for better stability and enhanced response.
Sintered Base – High-end sintered 4000 P-Tex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
Wood Veneer – Real wood birch veneer topsheet sealed with urethane for a unique look and a smooth ride.
2 x 4 Inserts
