Committed to manufacturing the best snowboards, boots, and bindings on the market, RIDE lives and breathes snowboarding.
With the Twin Pig, Fuse boot, LTD binding, and MTNpig as submissions at our inaugural STOMP Summit in Aspen, RIDE showcased a variety of products that exemplified this commitment to providing the best boards, boots, and bindings for snowboarders.
Sizes: 142, 148, 151, 156W, 157
It turns out RIDE’s widely popular Warpig has a fraternal twin. Featuring a similar short and wide profile that allows riders to size down, the softer, freestyle-focused Twin Pig is built around RIDE’s Asymmetric Twin Hybrid Camber–a design that incorporates positive camber between the feet and rocker outside for a playful ride with plenty of pop and stability. Plus, with its Asymmetrical Quadratic Sidecut, the Twin Pig can be as much fun carving around the rest of the resort as lapping the park.
Sizes: U.S. Men’s 7-13 (8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 11.5)
Fusing clean lines, plenty of technical features, and a traditional shell lacing system, the aptly named Fuse is a responsive boot for the freestyle-minded rider. With a stiffer flex, testers found plenty of support outside of the park, while the heat-moldable Intuition Mobile Foam Wrap Liner provided optimal comfort and a customizable fit. Plus, thanks to a full rubber toe cap and RIDE’s new, Michelin Fiber Lite sole, the durable Fuse is sure to meet the demands of hundred-plus day riders.
Colors: Black, Snake
Sizes: M, L, XL
RIDE admits that LTD can stand for a number of things, “limited” being one of them. But according to our testers, this highly-versatile binding is far from limited to anyone style of snowboarding. Featuring a Slimeback highback that provides response with the vibration dampening properties of urethane, the LTD proves to be a freestyle-spirited binding built for all types of terrain. And with an Aluminum Infinity Chassis that has a lifetime guarantee against bending or breaking, it may be a long time before you want, let alone need, anything else to strap into.
Sizes: 155, 159, 162, 160W, 164W
Better watch out, because this hog is ready to charge. The biggest and baddest in RIDE’s stable, the MTNpig is a mean method of all-mountain destruction. Featuring a high speed Sintered 4000 base and RIDE’s vibration dampening Carbon Slimewalls, chunder, powder, nor anything in between is able to slow this board down. And with a tapered directional hybrid camber profile that features a mellow sidecut built for large, arcing turns, the MTNpig just as hungry for powder and slush as fresh corduroy.
This past spring, TransWorld SNOWboarding hosted the inaugural STOMP Summit. With Aspen as the venue, STOMP set out to provide an engaging platform for brands, retailers, and media to interact, offering each the opportunity to experience and understand this season’s most sought after gear firsthand, on the mountain. Featuring products from the brands in attendance, every item has received its chance to shine on-hill, as we took over one of the world’s most iconic resorts.
