RIDE 2016 BOARD COMPACT
SNOW 2016 : Présentation de la board COMPACT de RIDE par Arnaud, conseiller snow chez Glisshop.com
If you want to put some colours in the streets, get your hands on the Compact. This freestyle stick is going to paint walls and turn parks into rainbows. Get ready to have some fun!
What can the Ride Compact do?
More than being just colourful, the Compact is a twin-tipped freestyle board for women. Primarily intended for riders who want to discover the joys of freestyling, the Compact features a poplar woodcore offering the natural flexibility of the wood. It makes the board poppy and responsive, ideal for learning and landing your first tricks. The twin shape allows for switch riding while the LowRize rockered profile maximises forgiveness and playfulness. The soft flex pattern makes it very easy to do presses and butters or try sliding on a rail. It also makes riding smooth and catchfree, which is good if you plan on upgrading your skills on piste too. In other words, the Compact is a simple yet efficient board that makes snowboarding really fun. The board turns out to be one of the best toys we got to try this season.
Who is the Ride Compact designed for?
The Compact is a board suited for many women riders. From beginners looking for versatility and progression to intermediates or advanced freestylers looking for a new park toy, the Compact is going to make your days brighter.

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 that, these babies are virtually indestructible, the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding.
90° and 0° angles, for a playful and forgiving board.
Woodcore running from tip to tail with high longevity.
A twin rockered shape that just lifts the contact points out of the snow and has a nearly flat zone under foot.
One the industry standard, it absorbs wax and is easy to maintain.

What can the K2 Charm Black do?
This entry-level binding is perfect for making progression painless and fun endless. It is flexy and forgiving, allowing inexperienced riders to work on their technique without struggling too much. It makes no doubt that you'll be able to link flawless turns only after a couple of runs on the green slopes. If you know how to do that, then take it to the next level and hit darker colours like blues and reds, and if, really, you're talented, you can rely on the EVA foam that delivers optimal cushioning and comfort making the binding perfectly suited for riding in more difficult and variable conditions.
