If you hang out with the park crowd, the Ride Society Snowboard will fit right in.
Find the biggest jump on the mountain and point it, the Ride Society Snowboard will help you stomp it. How? First of all, Ride uses urethane in this freestyle deck's sidewalls. Just like on your longboard wheels, the urethane reduces vibration for a smooth ride up to the takeoff. A screaming fast Fusion 4000 sintered base ensures you'll have enough speed to make the transition. Just before you reach the lip, ollie to get a little extra air. Carbon laminates over the Society Snowboard's Aggression Core store, then release energy for explosive pop. The carbon laminates also transmit power from your bindings to the edge, so you won't wash out when you land. Ride gave the Society a twin shape, so it feels the same switch or regular. If you still have any doubt about this freestyle board's performance, consider this—the Society is the choice of freestyle rulers J.J. Thomas and Mikey LeBlanc.

This borad is sick. enough said.
Epic? I think so
The Ride Society is pretty much the Cadillac of snowboards. It cruises, it carves, it pops, it jibs. It does anything that you can throw in front of it. I got to ride the 154 last season and absolutely loved it. Once you're past the break in period, its on like Donkey Kong.
The Slimewalls make vibrations slim to none and help when gripping on rails. The Cleavedge is so sick, because you can detune to almost nothing and still have an edge.
It is the same flex as the DH, but with the Carbon Array of 5 it is a lot snappier than the DH. I demo'd the DH and the sidecut on this is much more superior to the DH.
I recommend this deck to anyone with the idea of wanting to shred the entire mountain as their terrain park.
Best board ever !
I was fortunate enough to attend a demo back in February and got to ride this board. This board has a similar flex to the DH, but has more pop to it with the extra carbon fiber underfoot. It carves so much better than the DH with it's quadratic side cut and the base of the board is fast as can be.
I rode the 160, I have a 10.5 boot size and had no issues at all with any toe drag at all. I took this board through the park, carving on trail and it some powder in the trees and it was great everywhere. This is definitely going to be my board for the 07/08 snowboard season!
If you want something that is a bit snappier and more responsive then the DH and carves as well as an alpine board, but still kills the terrain park you will love this board.
