The Helix has been replicated with a few mutations from last year’s model to give you the maximum in freestyle performance. The Helix features RIDE’s Twin Camber shape and a slightly softer flex than last year’s model, but the asymmetric sidecut is what truly sets the Helix apart. The radius of the sidecut on your heelside edge is deeper than the radius on your toeside edge, giving you more leverage over your heelside turns. This anatomically correct board shape allows you to power through turns easier on your heelside edge. The Helix is a go anywhere, do anything freestyle deck and a favorite of team rider, cloning test subject and slopestyle contest dominator Yuki Kadono.
RIDING STYLE: Park
BOARD SHAPE: Asymentrical
PROFILE: Asymmetrical Twin Camber
Roll In Slimewalls
Carbon Array 3 Laminates
ALL RIDE boards feature Thin Construction with tapered tips and tails, reduced swing weight, enhanced tip flex and the sidewall runs past the effective edge.
Rockwell 48 C.
Triaxial on top, biaxial on base, balanced torsion and stiffness for better response with speed.
High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.
RIDE’s Carbon Slimerods® give already fun and playful boards the added liveliness to set them apart from other boards. Using strategic placement in the board’s tip and/or tail, this technology adds pop without the stiffness generally associated with snappy boards. Made up of flat carbon rods that wrap around urethane slime-core, Carbon Slimerods® have carbon for massive pop and a slime-core to smooth out the landing. Available in two levels – 1.0 & 2.0.
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.
ROLL IN SLIMEWALLS®
Unique 3D fiberglass structure built around our urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
CARBON ARRAY™ LAMINATES
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. Offered in two levels of technology, 3 & 5.
Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strenth and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels – single and double.
STANDARD TOP SHEET
Durable topsheet with graphics only RIDE can bring you.
