I have a size 11 shoe, I'm 115 pounds, and I'm 5 foot 7.5. What size snowboard should I use? every bit of advise would be great, thanks.
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.
I'm about 5'10", 200lbs and have the 163 Wide and it is great in all conditions. Smooth and excellent control. Very stable at high speeds. I feel no paranoia about catching an edge on the catwalks. Too stiff for playing around at the park, but an excellent choice for bombing the groomers. Put close to 600,000 vertical feet on it this season and have yet to find anything to complain about.
got this board mid season and its amazing how well it turns zipping down the mountain. Responds really well, and does not chatter when you are really picking up speed. If you like to ride the mountain and go fast I would put this board at the top of your list!
i have been snowboarding for 1 year and LOVE pow but am just getting into the park. also love the graphics. is this a good board for me?
hey mann if ur lookin to hit up some park runs there our some better boards out there that still have massive floatt in the poww. if i were u id look into the ride dh which kills it anywhere park or pow! hope i helped man
and what bindings/boot would work good with this if i did get this board
I was lucky enough to finish the 2010 season on a Highlife 158. I've been a huge fan of the Timeless and Concept TMS/UL family for quite some time and fortunately the Highlife, which is replacing the TMS/Yukon, hasn't let me down.
The first run I took this board out my first impression was, wow I don't even notice the rocker at all! But then I quickly realized that I've spent the majority of the season on the Machete and I was just used to the lowrize rocker on the nose with the turn initiation. The demo day at Snowbasin, where I first rode the board, I really liked the board a lot; it carved well, poppy in the nose and tail, stable at high speeds, base was fast in all the conditions I took it in.
But I really didn't start appreciating how great this board was until I switched back to my Machete.When I started riding my Machete again the difference in the tail was amazing. I couldn't believe the difference in how loose the tail was when exiting turns and on landings on the Machete compared to the LowPro on the Highlife. I had washed out on larger drops quite a bit during the season and I had chalked it up to bad technique, but then started to think with how different it felt after riding the LowPro that it could be partially because of the LowRize on the Tail.
I was lucky and got to finish my season out on a Highlife and managed to ride it in every condition imaginable and haven't even remotely thought about switching back to my Machete. I won't deny that it could be partially a mental thing, but since I've switched I've been stomping every drop that I try. The tail is extremely stable and tight yet doesn't hook or "fish Tail" when exiting a turn on firm groomers.Flying through crud, iced up groomers & choppy snow, slushy patches, etc... is a breeze and popping off the tail is effortless and almost exactly the same as when you olly on a regular camber deck. The CA5 & Pop glass provide enough oomph to spring right off the tail with ease.
I had so much fun riding this deck that there is a very high probability that this will be the only deck I ride during the 2010/2011 season, it's that great and handles everything you throw at it!
I am debating the 155 v 158. I have a size 11 boot and weigh 190lbs. Am I going to lose speed by riding a 155 over a 158? Recommended weight is that I should be riding a 161, but I don't want anything that big.
Sturdy built. Need I say more?
If I had to choose one word to describe this board it would be......Charger! If you like going fast, the Highlife likes going faster. If it's G-forces you want the Highlife can hold a turn like a small european sports car. Big mountain? While you're breaking a sweat the Highlife is sipping a pina colada asking whats next? It is a do-all-bundle-of-agrresive just waiting for you to challenge it. If you like the old model Timeless and Concept TMS boards say hello to their heavy metal stepchild.
Warning: Not for those who get week in the knees when they see kittens
I didn't understand this board until i got to ride it in Washington with the Ride crew. The shape on this board is amazing. The Lowrise nose makes it float effortlessly through the deep heavy stuff of the northwest, and the Prorise tail makes it extremely stable. Now I know why this is the board of choice for the guys at Ride headquarters. I was really bummed when they discontinued the TMS until rode this. Board is amazing! You can ride this everyday, in every condition. The few runs I took on a different board I was wishing I was on this.
