Description

Buck yeah.

Stability is the name of the game. Whether stomping huge park landings or perfecting your jib game, the Ride Buckwild Snowboard performs like a genetically modified super-cat; always poised to land on its feet. The ProRize profile uses a primarily flat shape with just the right amount of rocker to keep things loose. That means less washing out and more high fives.
  • ProRize shape features a large flat zone with minimal rocker at tip and tail, to balance edge grip with a forgiving, hook-free freestyle feel
  • Skate-inspired 85A urethane Slimewalls absorb edge impacts from jibs, trees, and rocks
  • Carbon Array 3 in binding zones improves edge bite and toe-to-heel transitions on hard snow
  • Carbon-wrapped urethane Pop Rods 2.0 increase (you guessed it) pop without increasing stiffness, without sacrificing butter-ability
  • The Fusion 4000 sintered base holds wax and keeps things fast

Fun to ride, Not Durable!

This board performs well all over the mountain. It is light and maneuverable for trashing the park, floats ok in powder, and to my surprise it is stable at high speeds (although for anything too steep or icy the flat camber is too washy).

My only problem with this board is that it has not lasted long. After 3 days on the mountain, I have one core shot the size of a quarter, one edge close to blowing out, and the tip is starting to delaminate. Now the base damage IS my fault (I'm not one to shy away from a powder stash, even if there may be hidden rocks and stumps) but the size of the damage tells me that this stick was not built to withstand much abuse. Also, the delamination is UNACCEPTABLE after only 3 days.

Overall I'd recommend the buckwild for crushing anything in-bounds, but it will not stand up to the streets or backcountry. The combination of pop, camber, and flex make it ideally suited for halfpipes and big jumps, especially when spinning is involved.

((( A note on flat camber: I bought this board short, thinking that a short board plus flat/rocker profile would equal mega-smooth buttery jibbness. At 6/10 the flex is too stiff for such purposes, and I found myself slipping off the end of the board if I attempted any but the most modest of presses. For playful softness I think a traditional camber board which flexes in the middle is a better choice, because a softer reverse camber board gets unstable in a hurry. Now you know! )))

Sorry for the low production value on these, it was a spur of the moment idea. But the content is there to help you decide if the Buckwild is the right deck for you.

Bestfriend

I am a huge fan of the Buckwild and it's been a popular board among the team riders, if it's good enough for them it's definitely good enough for me. I have found this board to be the perfect all around board for me. It's plenty stable at speeds due to the carbon array 3 yet I can still press it on rails/boxes with ease. The pro-rize make the board flat essentially which makes it real forgiving but due to the pop rods it doesn't sacrifice any nollie/ollie pop. Overall this board is super fun and performs in so many conditions (pipe,park,chinese downhill) without flinching at all.

GREAT new addition

The Buckwild is an amazing addition to the Ride board line up. A bunch of the Ride crew here in the Rockies picked up this board and couldn't put it down - Including myself! It was one of the highest rated boards at the early demos and for good reason.

ProRize and Pop Rods 2.0 are the main reasons why this board kills it for me. ProRize offers you greater effective edge for carving and holding tight at high speeds. Pop rods 2.0 give you amazing snap in your ollies and nollies. The Buckwild is a great all around board with medium-stiff flex pattern that breaks in very nicely. You will not be disappointed!!
