RIDE 2016 BOARD HIGHLIFE UL

SNOW 2016 : Présentation de la board HIGHLIFE UL de RIDE par Arnaud, conseiller snow chez Glisshop.com

Snowboard Ride Highlife UL

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

The Highlife UL is the kind of board you see hanging on the side of a helicopter, with proriders sitting in it. It is the kind of board that is often covered with powder snow in the videos so you never know it’s the Highlife the guy is riding. But the Highlife doesn’t want to shine by its look or be in the spotlights, all it wants is to perform. 

What can the Ride Highlife UL do? 

The Highlife UL is a board that features state-of-the-art technologies and that delivers unparalleled freeride performance. To make things simple, it is the most powerful and responsive deck you can find in Ride’s line of boards. It doesn’t get better than this. Behind its sober and elegant style hides a beast waiting to be unleashed. Saying the mountain can be dangerous is true, but saying the Highlife doesn’t care about danger is also true. It is a fantastic high-end freeride gem, light as a feather. The board is stiff and responsive which means it performs extremely well on hard snow. Carving an arc is easy, the board locks in and rails through it with a scientific precision. And the harder you push, the harder it’ll push back to spring into the next turn. On powder, it works like a dream. The rockered nose carries the board above surface and the lightweight construction makes you feel like you are flying. The board slash turns and delivers so much pleasure that it is hard to describe with words. The Highlife UL is a board made to ride hard and fast regardless of the conditions and terrains. 

Who is the Ride Highlife UL designed for? 

So much performance needs skills to be tamed. We recommend the board to advanced and expert riders who have strong legs and good technique. If you do, then you’ll appreciate how stable, responsive, precise and powerful the Ride Highlife UL works. Prepare for a blast.

Structure - Construction

  • CARBON ARRAY™ 5  :

    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.

  • Slimewalls®  :

    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.

  • Fibre de Verre POP GLASS  :

    Carbon fiber positionned at 90° incorporated to fiberglass. More pop but no more stiffness.

  • SILENCER™ 5  :

    Purify the response from our Pop Glass, Carbon Arrays and Linear reinforcements by filtering out vibration for a super smoothed-out, snappy core.

  • UL Core  :

    Built to smooth the Ride and lighten the load. The UL Core has tip-to-tail full thickness silencer stringers, placed strategically within the wood core for high strength and less weight.

Shape - Sidecuts

  • All Mountain  :

    Designed to suit the needs of versatile riders, these boards offer outstanding performance where-ever you take them. You can start your day early with some off-piste tree-runs, continue soaring over the slopes around noon and finish the day off with a park session.

Rocker - Camber

  • Hybrid All Mountain  :

    Featuring rocker in the nose and a level micro-camber zone extending under the feet and through the tail.

Other

  • MEMBRAIN®  :

    Weighing less than half of traditional plastic top sheets, Membrain® maintains a smooth feel by infusing urethane into fabric. Along with pushing limits in the world of lightweight, this process also allows us to push the boundaries when it comes to graphics by utilizing the textures and aesthetics associated with a variety of fabrics.

Snow Binding Drake Supersport Black

The Supersport is a name that counts in the snowboard industry. It is an iconic binding in Nitro's lineup and many riders have been in love with it for years. The good news with the new 2016 version is that it was upgraded. The binding comes with a new baseplate named Light Saber. It delivers better response and higher flexiblity to freestylers. Speaking of flexibility, it was fine tuned on the highback to have a binding that adjusts better to your style. It even comes with the magnesium buckles improving lightweight and giving the binding a better overall finish. Seems like the Supersport is everything but dead! 

What can the Drake Supersport Black do? 

The Supersport is a freestyle oriented binding that remains versatile enough to face the entire mountain. Like any decent high-end binding, it delivers power and precision and ensures support to hard chargers. You can push hard it will respond fast. In the park, you'll appreciate its lateral tweakability and the great contact feel with the board. If your style is not good, you won't be able to blame the binding anymore.  

Who is the Drake Supersport Black designed for? 

If you are an advanced or expert rider and if you are looking for a durable, light and precise binding that allows you to destroy the park and the backcountry, then the Supersport is a safe pick.

Baseplate - Chassis

  • Light Saber  : The Light Saber is an evolution of the Delta Light base plate. Drake reduced the contact points to the minimum, in order to give you a better feeling while riding, whilst reducing the weight. The heelcup positionning is totally toolless: 3 different positions, adjustable with two levers placed on the baseplate. Last but not least, the new Light Saber baseplate gives you the opportunity to adjust the highback independently from the ankle straps, this means 13 different customizable combinations to suit your riding style.
  • Natural Cant Evo  : The Natural Cant Evo has a total new design and it’s totally toolless; beside that 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 Evo pad your riding will feel totally different.

Highback

Straps - Buckles

  • Mg12 Buckles
  • 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.

  • Gran Turismo Ankle strap  :

    The new GT strap offers you the right comfort and lightness you need. GT ankle strap has been developed for riders that like to push hard all day long without pressure points.

Various

Great board although for advanced riders for sure, not a slow board by any means this board is for shredding fast. Have used this on groomers and it just flies, so much grip and control it's unreal. If you want a board that really carves then pick this it does it effortlessly! Off piste it's great too, set back the stance and off you go. This is a very stiff board hence good for high speed, if you are looking for a cruiser and fast edge to edge shifts it's hard work. Overall for my first hybrid camber board and with the rocker at the tip it's a board you can be confident on yet still get massive amounts of grip due to the camber between your feet. Another top of the range product by Ride Snowboards. Glisshop provided a great service too, great communication, from France to Scotland within 4 working days so cannot fault.
