The Compact is built for all-mountain performance. The standard camber profile provides camber underfoot for snap and response with a long, rockered nose for float and turn initiation. Quadratic Sidecut improves turn initiation, exit and edge grip as well. Slimewalls® offer up a smoother ride and increase durability by absorbing impact. Roll-In sidewall construction increases board strength and reduces board weight. The Compact is a soft-flexing directional all-mountain board that allows riders of all ability levels to have fun on the mountain.
DIRECTIONAL HYBRID CAMBER - A directional shape with a hybrid profile that has more camber than rocker.
QUADRATIC SIDECUT - Blending of three radii to improve turn initiation/exit while providing the best grip possible. This design is uniquely formulated for each model based on its shape and riding style.
EXTRUDED BASE - The industry standard extruded 1500 Ptex base material. Good wax absorption and easy to repair.
WMNS PERFORMANCE™ CORE - Specially formulated for the women’s line, this core combines lightweight Paulownia wood stringers with high-strength Aspen. Available on every women’s board.
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.
ROLL-IN CONSTRUCTION - Unique 3D structure built around our urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
BIAXIAL GLASS FIBERGLASS - 90° and 0° angles, fun and forgiving.
IMPACT PLATES LAMINATES - Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels, Single and Double.
STANDARD TOP SHEET - Durable Urethane topsheet material with graphics only RIDE can bring you.
