Pro Nico Droz loves this board.
Ride took a great jib deck and made it even better—Pop Stix (flat ribs of carbon) in the Ride DH Snowboard add liveliness and pop without detracting from the buttery flex. If you're a fan of the twintip DH, you already know about the 85A-durometer urethane sidewalls that protect your deck and absorb shock when you slide on wood, metal, and snow. Detune the DH's edges to your liking—50% more steel in the edges ensures durability and resistance to cracking. A radial sidecut gives you smooth, predictable turning. *These Ride boards arrived with assorted colored bases. We have no control over which color you'll get.

Is this board any good for the mountain?...
Is this board any good for the mountain? I dont do alot of park
It is a twin and is more made for the park. It can be rode everywhere, but mostly suited for the park. Look at the Antic snowboard from Ride...

I want to get this board because it looks sick and its cheap on sale. Is it any good for the mountain too?

CHEAPLY MADE IMHO
This is just my opinion, and some might say i ride rough, but my board didn't stand up to rail use. I ride mostly park in the northeast. I had this board for 6 days. In the first 5days i can say the board was light, poppy, mid flex, super responsive, great dampening, stable at high speeds, and super fun. But on that 6th day, the same thing that makes this board fun (slimewalls) was the downfall! I hit a burr on a round rail doing a boardslide and it caved in my edge like a semi-circle and pushed my edge out on the bottom. Totally wrecked the board but landed my trick. That i wouldn't call good craftsmanship! 6 days on snow!! Come on!! But i tore the base and edge out and super glued base from an old board covered with marine eppoxy and it came back to life. Best rock board i have ever had. Maybe you will have better results
This board is definitely the best board ive ever road. It is extremely smooth. Amazing pop. Great flex great for presses and butters. This board can handle anything the park throws at you from rails to kickers. Definitely recommend it for everybody.
very good Board
really good Board, light and I mixed it up with the Ride Contraband Bindings and they make a good couple. really light and all-around Board.
I was riding on the 155. Really good!
Ride Dh w/Contrabands
The Ride DH has a sweet edge on it and I loved the ride. I rode it with the Contrabands and the combination was spectacular. The 155 was ideal for me, as I usually ride a bigger board, but this was a joy at its least.
RIDE DH 151
SCREW GRAPHICS, you should worry how a board rides before you worry about graphics. I have the 151. It is great in the park. BASE is fast. I wax like
every two weeks. Base takes abuse. Rails and boxes are no match for it.Jumps and rock drops is great. It's okay in the powder. I'm 5'3' and hit 200lbs. I'm a tank. It takes my weight just great with the pop stix. I highly recommend it for parks.
Sick Park Board
Loving this board for nose presses and rails. definitely didn't have many vibrations when redlining the board, this board is an awesome park board, just be careful not to dent edges when you slam into the hand rails.
Hi there.m looking into buying a ride DH,...
Hi there.m looking into buying a ride DH, for park and freestyle use. I weigh 77 kg and im 177 cm tall. Some people recomened a 157 others recommend a 155, how do i make this decision? Many thanks Joe.
If you're using it mostly for jibs and rails and such, I'd go for the 155. Otherwise, I'd say to jump on the 157. You want to consider things like weight and riding style... in my experience the DH isn't the most durable board so maybe you want to go with the size that is designed to handle a little more weight.
wht is stance width
wht is stance width
That depends where you mount them.
its the width between your bindings...
I really like my Ride DH, its fun and can handle all different terrain. I am 5 foot 9 and 140 pounds and I ride a 155cm DH. I found that it works well as a park board but the length that I purchased for myself I have a lot more fun hitting backcountry booters on it. The swing weight is a little more than what I like but I also just suck at spinning anyway. The slimewall edge works great for reducing vibration, and helping you to not catch your edge on rails. My main complaint with the slimewall is that I had a pretty good impact to the side of my edge, most boards wounld have just had a dent I feel, but the softness of the slimewall allowed my edge to totally snap and get jammed into my base and the board is now ruined. At the same time it was a pretty intense impact to the edge. Also this years model has pop sticks that are like fishing rods running the length of the board. they give the board great pop, you can ollie over slow signs like never before.
DH is perfect!
Ride's "DH" is the perfect board for rails, kickers, and anything else you can find. The board keeps its POP and has a decent base. It has actually been one of the toughest boards I have had. It has the best feel of any board out there. Bottom line, Buy the DH...(It will last more than one season!)
I have ridden this board for a week and love it. The flex on this board is nice and feels so smooth on boxes and rails. Its a little slow compared to my other board but just a little bit. All in all this is m favorite board I have ever ridden. Great park board!!!
Been riding the board for a bit now, love the snap and bite to it, good in park and rails, pipe it's a bit dodgey but better then any of the burton boards i've ridden and the look on it looks mint as well!
Bought the DH at the end of last season and i was impressed. Smooth and buttery on boxes but still enough pop to handle big kickers. all around good park board
Not blown away
I rode my friends DH and wasn't blown away. It was ok but I liked my Rome Agent much more. The graphics are flashy so if you like that go for it but for the cash I think you can get a better board like the Agent or the Nitro T2 that I rode last year. Both Rome and Nitro have a better warranty for 2 years. My friend broke his DH, Ride did cover it but it took a long time and the warranty is only for a year. For the cash you can get better.
Pop Sticks !
The DH is back for 08/09 with a couple of great updates. The first you will notice is yet again Ride doesn't let down with the great graphics that you come to expect every year on the DH. The artist that did these graphics is Barry Mcgee, google him he has some amazing work.
The main tech update to the DH for 08/09 is the addition of Pop Sticks. Like with the Society, Ride has taken tech that is used in the fishing pole industry to add some amazing pop to the tip and tail of the DH without messing with the perfect 6 out of 10 flex the DH has.
Basically there are these fishing poles that you can bend past 180 degrees and they will not snap. Ride took this tech and milled it down into these 6 inch "sticks" that they place into the nose and tail of the DH. Now you can load up your Nose/Tail and get an incredible snap, but the board is still soft enough to butter and screw around.
The board will accommodate up to a 10.5 boot in all of the sizes, so if you have a size 11 or bigger check out the Dose, the wide version of the DH.
