My brother has this board and it is very stiff. Definitely a park board, very poppy not great for pow tho, harder to keep that nose up. That said he doesn't ride that often and never backcountry so he loves it! I'm jealous of the design though! The graphics are pretty dope! Although if you're goofy (like me, my brothers regular) the top graphics are upside-down hahaha.
How well does this board handle rails and...
How well does this board handle rails and boxes? I like to hit park jumps but also want a board that is fun for occasional jibbing. I've been reading mixed things about this in various reviews and am curious as to how this board holds up on boxes and/or rails. I'm basically looking for a good all-around park board. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.
well my friend has this board he is about 5'11" and about 140lbs and rides a 151cm and at that size he was able to kill the jibs well still being able to rip on jumps. and it still handle the pow pow vary well
not really suited for the park
First off, all the hype about this board having lots pop is for real. Everywhere I rode this thing people were tripping out on how high i was boosting off little jumps. Its like a pogo stick. The build construction is solid, and the graphic is clean. I think Ride is one of the better quality large board companies out there.
That said, this board is super stiff. They advertise it as a good park board, but only if you hit big jumps exclusively... boxes are impossible to press, and rails are downright sketchy. Powder is also another area this board has issues. You really have to work to keep the nose up. Overall this board is best suited for iced groomers and parks with large booters.
Last season I would have rated this 4 stars, but after riding a bunch of reverse camber and flexy boards this season I began to realize how much better technology is out there. Just keepin it real.
hi im interested in buying this board but...
hi im interested in buying this board but im not sure if it will satisfy me. i want to step up to a good performance park board and am wondering if this board is what i want. if i am 5'7 and 130 with a US 10 foot size, what size board should i use
yes this board is great for freestyle and park. I would recommend a 151 size for you and since it is a twin, riding freestyle is perfect for it. Also with the pop rods, you will get an increase of pop off various jumps and more. This board is sick!
would the 160 fit a size 12 boot without...
would the 160 fit a size 12 boot without having my toes hanging over?
Yes, a size 12 boot can fit a 160cm Ride Society with no toe drag. It really depends on the boot you select along with the adjustability of your binding. With the 160cm Ride Society, I chose to use the size 11.5 (29cm) Salomon F22 boot with its low profile shape and the Ride Alpha binding with its adjustability and convertible toe strap. It has worked well for me and I love the setup. Good luck!
disagree with markc (see below). ride society 160 has 252mm in waist width. you need at lest 256-260 in waist width for Size 12 boot (even when it is low profile) in my opinion.
you could may be pull it off if you set up your bindings in wide stance and really angled, but i think you'd be better of with wider board.
i have the 08' model and it is awesome, perfect flex for pressing that box, and equal pop. ive had this board out in lake tahoe at squaw valley, droppin off 20 foot cliffs into a couple feet of powder and it is sick. definately worth the money
Stiff yet a lot of fun.
If you are serious about mashing the Park this board is legit.
Carbon Array 5 makes it super stiff on the noze and tail. and yet has some flex between the bindings.
I have last yrs model and i must say. it is freaking awesome. By far the best board i have ever ridden on. I'm 5'9 165 and use a 154. works perfectly. Im all over the place on the mountain. Park-Steep Slopes. it handles great wherever i go. Great on the pipe as well. toEverything about it is great. no complaints at all. i ride on the east cost and i was surprised to see how well it handled on ice. The slimewalls really dig in and make it smoother. Overall great board!
The Society is back again for Oh'10 and is the same great board that it has been the past few years. The only thing that has changed from last year are the graphics. The Society features Carbon Array 5 to keep it snappy in the nose and tail, but is softer between the bindings so it's still playful on boxes and rails.
It also features a tech Ride introduced last year called Pop Rods. Ride has inserted two hollow carbon rods in the nose and tail of the board. This allows you to really load up the nose and tail and spring higher then you have before.
Combined with a True color sintered base that is fast in all conditions, 85a slimewalls and a quadratic sidecut the society will take everything you throw at it. This board is perfect for the rider that loves the park but wants something that will not let you down anywhere on the mountain.
Unfortunately ride doesn't make a wide version of this deck and the 24.9-25.2 waist widths really max out at a US 10.5 boot size. If you are rocking an 11-11.5 check out Ride's RFL and FUL boot that have reduced foot prints that will allow you to squeeze on this deck without plates.
