I’ve been riding a Ride DH2 for the past two seasons having upgraded from a very old shape board and was more than a little surprised at how far things have come along and what I’d been missing out on. We’re really happy to be able to offer Ride boards at our chalets, they are great pieces of kit and always get great reviews.
The changes in rocker profile make such a difference to riding in powder and on piste.
In powder the increased rocker at the ends of the board stops the board sinking and means you don’t have to concentrate on leaning back so much.
On-piste the flat area on the DH2 between the feet makes stomping a landing and riding away completely flat so easy it feels like cheating, I’ve really noticed it in my switch riding which was a little shaky a season or so ago but this board really does give you confidence.
Lighter, more responsive, more versatile and more stable. I’ve hiked with it ridden fresh powder, spring slush, park and piste while out with guests and it never lets you down.
