Description

Your smooth kink.

You know what turns your crank—a durable park-slayer that won’t hook during your transitions and jibs. The Ride Kink Snowboard is totally into that. It is that, in fact, thanks to Ride’s Radial Blendz sidecut.
  • Radial Blendz sidecut lengthens the blend zone from the sidecut to the tip for straight, true tracking
  • Skate-inspired 85A Slimewalls use urethane to smooth interaction with snow, wood, and metal
  • Graphics appear when the board gets cold, then fade when the board warms up so you can freak your buddies out
  • Cleave Edge means 50% thicker steel edges (than standard) for durability and so you can de-tune without worry
  • True, centered twin shape for riding switch
  • We can't control what base color you'll get, but we're sure you'll be stoked no matter what

Rocks!

This board is the best. I got a 147 and the graphics look way cooler in person then they do online. It can hanndle anything in the park. although it really excels on jibs but still decent on jumps

Would this board be good to cruise around the mountain? and is it catch edge free?

I love to ride the side hits.

This is really more of a jib/park deck than an all-mountain deck. You should be pretty OK with not catching edges, but if you're more of an all-mountain rider it's probably not the best for ya.

Great Park Board

This board is perfect for the terrain park. I have an older version and will most likely be replacing it with another kink. I would use it for everything but back country.

sweet board

I got this board last year and it is amazing. I paired it up with the Ride Delta MVMT bindings. It not only looks sick on the slopes but has versability and durability. I have used it for shredding the slopes and hitting up the park and it handled very well in both cases. Get it...you can't go wrong

It is def a all around park killer yo. My buddy has an 07 kink and he ripps jumps, box's, rails, everythinggg, for a few seasons now and has had no problems or complaints. So yes it is def good for kickers, but you will notice that the kink is just a killer all over. Plus if you are doing some big booters, the slime walls are a nice dampening device to take out the chatter and ease harsh landings

Rail & Box Killer

Are late night jib sessions your primary focus? Do you hike one particular jib feature at your resort over and over until you get your trick dialed? Then the kink should be on your short list of boards to take care of your jibbing needs.

The Kink has a few features that are going to progress your jibbing sessions:

85A Slimewalls - First of all, they take a beating... so when you're hitting boxes, rails, tree stumps, etc.. you don't have to worry about cracking a sidewall. The slimewalls also flex more naturally with the rest of your board, so you have better feeling under foot. So setting up to spin on your heel or toe edge is much smoother because you have so much more feeling. Last, the naturally absorb vibration, so you'll find that a lot of the chatter you get while riding is absorbed in your sidewalls and you never feel it under foot.

Cleavedge - The metal edges on the board (along with all ride boards in the mobility lineup) are 50% thicker than a normal metal edge. You benefit from this because when you slide down a rail, your edge heats up.. then you pop off and land on cold snow which can occasionally cause your metal edge to crack. Having thicker edges on your board really helps prevent this and you being without a deck.

1500 Extruded base - This base takes a beating and is very easy to repair when you do get a base shot.

This is really one of the best rail boards on the market. If you're looking for the same feeling with Rocker, check out the Ride Crush as that board is just a lighter kink with Rocker. If you're looking for a more all around park deck that can still handle rails just as well make sure to look at the DH & Machete.

Lastly, if you're boot size is bigger than a 10.5 make sure you check out the wide model of the kink so you don't get toe drag.

yo i got a question for you... im debating between the WWW and the Kink cause they are relatively the same in price. Which one do you think would be a better longer lasting choice?

Responded on

I would get the K2 www because it has rocker. Plain and simple rocker is personaly far better than traditional camber. But, the Kink has slimewallz which is a huge plus and its cheaper. They are both really close, but i think the K2 WWW would be best for the long term because of rocker.

Responded on

The only diff is tho, is that you can get the k2 www in rocker and in reg camber. If you want the www, you have to look and make sure it is the one with rocker. Personally i would go for the kink, but really its all personal preference. Slimewalls on the kink are the shit if all you're really into is kickers and jibbs. Never worry about them cracking or exploding like my nitro did lol
