My go-to all mountain shred stick
I started last season without this stick in my quiver. After a few days alternating between my Never Summer SL and Ride Slackcountry, I decided I needed something to bridge the gap between the two boards. Little did I know, this bridge would end up being my favorite go-to board in my entire quiver. I used this thing everywhere: deep pow, cliffs, slackcountry hiking, variable days, groomers, ice, and everything in between. EVERYTHING. The board is so smooth, so damp (without killing feel), and just plain FAST. Despite only having a little bit of rocker in the nose, it stays up in the pow just as good as my Ride Slackcountry. The flat tail gives a lot better landing feel when dropping cliffs or airing lips too, which was one of the drawbacks from the Slackcountry. This board even handled some great park laps at Breck this season too. Yes, it's that versatile. Easily the best board I've ever ridden and will continue to ride. Well done, Ride.
