Ride Commissioner Snowboard 2021 Black 158 The Ride Commissioner Snowboard 2021 is made for a rider that demands the ultimate high-speed performance. This board will go as fast as you want to without flinching, powder, groomers, chop this board will power through all of it. Ride has used every technology available to make sure this board holds up to the most demanding speed freaks on the mountain. A Tapered Elliptical Progressive Sidecut allows for exceptional turn initiation and follow through. A laser-cut aluminum/carbon fiber topsheet increases high-speed control. 100% Paulownia core reduces weight and increases flex properties for snappier turns. The low friction Race Base is made from a carbon-infused sintered base material to ensure a fast ride. The Commissioner is designed for intermediate to high-level riders seeking high-speed all-mountain terrain. Directional Hybrid Camber:A directional shape with a hybrid profile that has more camber than rocker. Elliptical Progressive Sidecut: Designed exclusively for the Commissioner, this sidecut combines tight elliptical curvature at the tip and tail to provide low-speed initiation and response with a larger radial section between the feet for high-speed stability and tracking. Paulownia Core: 100% lightweight Paulownia wood for maximum performance. Sintered Base: High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded. Slimewalls: Ride’s exclusive Slimewalls are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the urethane in Slimewalls smoothes the interaction with the snow, wood or metal surfaces you may ride on. On top of all that, these babies are virtually indestructible, the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding. Carbon Slimerods: Ride’s Slimerods give already fun and playful boards the added liveliness to set them apart from other boards. Using strategic placement in the boards tip and/or tail, this technology adds pop without the stiffness generally associated with snappy boards. Made up of flat carbon rods that wrap a urethane slime-core, Slimerods have carbon for massive pop and a slime-core to smooth out the landing. Carbon Array 5: This power distribution technology provides total board control in every stance location. Widespread carbon stringers placed at the binding zone gather input from any stance width and all pressure angles. Rider input is then channeled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control. Silencer 5: Specially designed urethane layers purifying the response from Ride’s Carbon Array 5 by filtering out vibration for a super smoothed-out, yet snappy feeling. Aluminum / Carbon Top Sheet: Racing inspired technology that balances the strength and damping abilities of anodized Titanal aluminum with the stiffness and rebound properties of woven carbon fiber. These two materials have been specifically designed together to improve the board’s edge hold, turning power, and overall speed while reducing weight. Carbon Infused Glass Fiberglass: 90° Carbon fibers stitched into the glass. Extra pop and response, without adding extra stiffness.
