With 09/10 Alpha Movements
Extended Board Family
Mine, my roommate's, and one buddy's boards, my DH 2.2 with Alpha Movements is 3rd from the right.
Mine and my roommate's boards, my DH 2.2 is on the far right.
All mountain destroyer!
First of all, I picked up my DH2 in early November of 2009, and have since ridden it about 3 or 4 times a week here in the great state of Alaska. I spend most my time riding a combination of all-mountain and park, but also do plenty of backcountry/pow riding along with many urban/jibbing sessions. It is easily the best board I've ever owned.
Most descriptions of the DH2 label it as a park board, and I'm not saying that it doesn't slay the park, but this board is definitely more than capable of ripping the entire mountain. Within the first week of riding my DH 2.2 (the second of the three limited edition graphic releases), I had the pleasure of bringing it out on a 2' pow day.. I was shocked by how much the lowrize rocker made it float out of the deep Alaskan powder. Since then, I've done everything possible on this board, from 3' pow days at Alyeska Resort, to sessioning urban spots around Anchorage and the surrounding areas, and everything in between. The carbon array 5 and pop stixs make the DH2 very snappy and stable, with tons of ollie power, and the lowrize rocker makes the DH2 playful and pressable on boxes and rails. I've literally used this board for every style of riding and it miraculously seems to excel in each discipline, I've done backcountry, all mountain, park, and urban jibbing. It's proven itself to be very durable as well, the cleave edges and slimewalls take abuse like you wouldn't believe. The only complaint I have (and it's a very minor one), is that the top sheet has cracked on either side of the nose of my board (roughly in between the binding inserts and the tip) from being pressed so much in addition to taking various ragdolls and tomahawks. This is purely cosmetic and the cracks only reach about an inch to two inches into my board from the edge. These cracks have not compromised the integrity of the board in any way. If you're looking for a noodly board to be used strictly for urban and park, you may want to check out the Ride Crush, but if you're looking for an incredible park board that can also slay powder and hold it's own on the rest of the mountain, look no further. I highly recommend the Ride DH2.
Also, for sizing references, I'm 5'10", 150 lbs, wear a size 10 32 Lashed, use Ride Alpha Movements in size 9-11, and have the DH 2.2 in a 155 regular. Hope this helps.
i rode last years dh2 and loved it......this one fer sure rides better than last years......i ride alot of park 4 to 5 days a week and this thing has held up great for me.....if ur looking for something that will take you from peak to park , this is the stick for you
one word that explains the board AWESOME! best thing that i ever rid. ride with RIDE and the dh 2 out preforms cant wait to go out later and tear up hills.
how wide is this board? is it wide enough...
how wide is this board? is it wide enough that my size 11 rome bodega boot fit on it?
Waist is 252mm. Measure it up against whatever deck you're riding right now. You'll probably be OK unless those Bodegas are enormous. My X8 had a waist of 25.5 or something, and it worked find with my 32 size 11s.
This Stick is IT.
Finally got my DH2 out on the freshies just after the christmas holiday and I was absolutely astonished with not only its smooth handling on groomers and in powder but its performance in the Park. the deck is so damn light it out performs any other Ride park board I've owned. The camber design and slightly torqued up stiffness give superior stability at speeds in the steeps but its butter soft pressing and jibbing around the rails and boxes. Price point is high, but it was DEFINITELY worth every cent.
diggin the hellsyeah's
I couldn't be happier with my purchase of this deck. Since this was my first venture out on a negative camber board i wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleased to find that this board was everything and more than i expected. It's quick edge to edge, is just stiff enough to carve it up on the goomers and it spins to win. What else do you need in a board? Very pleased!
The end all be all of freestyle decks. Poppy, carvy, jibby, stable, versitile
It rips the groomed. It isnt hooky. You will land things that would normaly bust your @$$. And beyond that, today I was riding 6 inches of set up powder over 20 inches of hollow sugar on the 159, center mounted at 15deg/-15deg and it rode like a setback freeride deck either direction. 'nuf said.
I recomend it to any park rider who likes to charge hard or anyone looking to ride freestyle all over the mountain. All for under $500.
Ehhh its alright.
This deck is sick for sure... it is stiffer than the older DH2 but with the rocker it has pretty much the same amount of flex. The rocker is pretty mellow, powers through some gnarly shit and still holds a decent edge.
The guy below me is trippin cus the DH2 is way heavier then the Trilagy Arts noodle i was just riding. Plus i dont know why you would swear on this board before you rode it, because i rode last years DH2 last season and broke it, so got this one from warranty, and i dont swear on it by any means. Im almost sure i will break it, but the lowrise rocker is sick for jibbin and pretty mellow.
lost o pop!
A feather for yo' foots
I have yet to even put this stick on the hill, but i already know its gonna be legit.
I've been sticking with Ride now (despite my affections for Mervin) for 5 or 6 seasons and have had a Kink, Society and now the DH2. Swore by each and every one while I had it on the hill.
the DH2 is HANDS DOWN one of the lightest boards I've ever felt and I've spent a number of years (8 or 9) working in snowsport retail and tech shops.
mine is gonna be put to the test at Wolf Creek for the crews annual interstate snow search.
how would this board fare in steep and...
how would this board fare in steep and deep powder (like Revelstoke, BC) when say compared to a Lib Tech T.Rice BTX with C2????
I realise the lib tech board would be stiffer and that the rocker is different on both boards, but I once took a friends DH through trees in Niseko Japan's deep pow and it shredded...
I am not into jibbing rails / boxes, i am into trees, deep pow and speedy groomers...
Is the DH2 for me or should I go for the Lib Tech T.Rice BTX C2...?
Neither you want a FREERIDE snowboard not a FREESTYLE snowboard. Check out something like the Burton Custom X. Check out http://www.backcountry.com/store/group/295/All-Mountain-Snowboards.html for backcountry.com's list of all mountain snowboards (freeride)

Great stiff Rocker style board.
Super fun board for the Park and Powder.
its a stiffer version of LowRise Technology.
Great for hitting big jumps and is easier than you can imagine when it comes to pressing that nose down on Rails.
the board is fun to ride but mine has 2days on it and the nose is already snapped offed which is crazy.
Do you suggest the Ride DH2 or the K2 WWW...
Do you suggest the Ride DH2 or the K2 WWW rocker?
That depends on if you want to ride the whole mountain or just lap the park. If you freestyle the entire mountain and want to ride pow as well as hit bigger features, go with the DH2. Its stiffer, more stable, and floats better in powder. Oppositely, the WWW rocker is super buttery and ideal for jibbing and butters, but won't take care of you at higher speeds like the DH2 will. If you're looking for a middle ground between the two, check out the Ride Machete.
dude dh2 for sure i just got it, its amazing, kinda stiff tho
What's the word on the limited edition...
What's the word on the limited edition DH2's? Will DogFunk be getting the DH 2.1, 2.2, or 2.3?
Hey Erok, Unfortunately we are not getting the LE DH2 models.
Fun 18 inch powder day at Brighton on the DH2
Stiffer, more response Rocker Deck
Are you into the Ride Machete but think that you might want something that is a bit stiffer and snappier? Basically the DH2 is basically a lighter, slightly stiffer, snappier board than the Machete.
The 2010 DH2 has one feature change to it from the 2009 model. The new model features Ride's Lowrise rocker. The board is flat from the middle out past the binding inserts and then just slightly rockers up (about 4mm). Combined with Ride's Carbon Array 5, this provides a great platform to carve on and you don't find yourself feeling sketched out on turns and at higher speeds with the rocker shape.
Just like last year Ride has thrown their True Color sintered base on this board that is fast in all conditions and doesn't have to be waxed as often as other base materials. You will also find the Membrain topsheet on this model, which is a 1/2 pound lighter than a traditional topsheet but just as strong and durable.
Ride has also taken the time to provide some great videos on their products this year. Check out the DH2 Product overview below and the other videos they've done to help you find the product that fits your riding needs.
