Snowboard Ride Alter Ego

Note: The colour of the bases may be different from the picture displayed on the website, manufacturers combine colours randomly.

If you want a board that looks like no other, there are chances for the Alter Ego for catch your attention. This board adjusts to your mood and to the conditions by delivering either a powerful and responsive ride or by offering a loose and smooth surf-like feel. 

What can the Ride Alter Ego snowboard do? 

Carving or powder surfing, it’s your choice. The Alter Ego is a very unique board that has a ‘lock-able’ tail. Thanks to a very simple clip system, you can lock the tail and get a board that works like a normal board with more precision and more response on hard snow. Or you can unlock it which results in a split tail, more flexible, allowing to reduce your turning radius and lay shorter turns. This is the carving part. But if it has been dumping all night, it’s another story. You better not stay on groomers with a board like that on your feet! Unlock the tail on the pow and surf the mountain like a big wave! The tail sinks naturally providing control and lifts the nose for an effortless floatation. No need to sit back, you can keep a natural position which maximises the board’s manoeuverability as well. And if it’s speed that you’re after, then lock the tail again. The board will feel more powerful and it will provide more support. Your ride, your choice! 

Who is the Ride Alter Ego snowboard designed for? 

We thoroughly recommend this board to advanced and expert skiers looking for high piste and powder performance. This adjustable tail feature adds a lot to the ride, making it truly customisable. Charge hard and fast or cruise the pow with the same deck. Disturbing, but great!

Structure - Construction

  • 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. Offered in three levels of technology, 3, 5, and 7.

  • Popwalls™ sidewalls  :

    This totally unique sidewall combines layers of Slimewall® 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. The new and exclusive tech enhances the charging riders’ experience as we have moved the carbon pop construction to the outside edge for better stability and enhanced response.

  • HYBRID GLASS  :

    Triaxial on top and biaxial below, torsion and stiffness are balanced for a better response at high speed.

  • PERFORMANCE Core  :

    Aspen wood very dense combined with bamboo and other light woods to provide a perfect balance between strength and lightweight.

Rocker - Camber

  •  :

    Rocker in the nose and a camber zone extending under the feet and trough the tail, paired with Split Tail technology this opens up crazy opportunities for inbouds and backcountry riding.

  • FUSION 4000 base  :

    Stronger, harder, faster than extruded bases - known to be the fastest base (sintered)

Baseplate - Chassis

  • Delta Light  :

    Engineered with the highest quality aluminum and fiber reinforced nylon. This ultra light weight baseplate was designed to enhance response and board feel. The weight on this baseplate was dramatically reduced by removing heavy plastic and replacing it with an EVA dampening pad. Delta-lite has an all new contact pad placed directly on the board to better dampen and take riding to a whole new level. A versatile, all-terrain performance baseplate that’s fully customizable for superior fit.

  • Natural cant  :

    Customize your riding stance maintaining the natural riding position in order to facilitate the natural inclination of the legs! It features the Rebound heel absorber low density cushioning to increase in the heel area the absorption of the vibrations and the dampening in landings. Thanks to the new Natural Cant pad the riding flavor will smell differently.

Highback

  • Light Frame  :

    Good news for the lovers of lightness! The new Light Frame keeps the same benefits of a full frame highback without the weight! It's a perfect mix of torsion and response while dramatically reducing the weight of the highback. This guarantees that it is comfortable, forgiving with no compromise of the support. And no extra weight.

Straps - Buckles

  • MG 12  :

    Take the quickest, and most efficient ratchet in the market, appreciated for its ability to slide five ladder steps every crank and its ergonomic shape to fasten the ratcheting and releasing operations. Then reduce the weight by 25% using Magnesium instead of aluminum and add even more precision with the new metal button release. You have yet to try the best.

  • Convertible Toe Glove  :

    This revolutionary uretane strap ensures perfect fit over the toe of the boot. Its two flexible wings go around the toes,

    automatically forming a gapless bond between strap and boot, which keeps them secure in the binding. They can also be

    positioned in their original mode across the front of the toes.

  • Premium MFC ankle strap  :

    Comfort, response, and flex in a luxuriously constructed strap.

    New internal padding for extra flex and coheasion with boot and binding interface. Featured on the Fifty binding, which is the best Drake's “value for the money”.

Various

  • Disc Classic  :

    The original Drake disc that mounts on 4-hole and 3-hole pattern without hassles. Don't waste time looking for ways to rig a custom stance. The classic gives you the option to personalize your drake binding setup with any board brand you ride.
