What a time to be on a RIDE. Most people are perfectly happy sitting toes in the sand or poolside for the months of summer, but then there are those who can’t shake the thought of snowboarding. We spent a good chunk of the dog days on Mt. Hood, above the clouds searching for transition, sliding rails, and slashing the slush. Lucky for you, we captured a whole bunch of the RIDE team ripping it up as seen in the RIDE Summer of 16 edit.

Danimals was standing in the middle of the road, totally dumbfounded near Mount Hood Oregon. He was totally blown away that he was now officially on the Pro Team. To commemorate this special occasion we made a very limited number of Danimals Edition 153cm Helix snowboards.
The asymmetrical Helix is the Minnesota natives go to board for riding rails in the streets to lapping jumps in the park and all the groomers in between. Limited amounts mean you have to act fast to get this piece of snowboard history before they are sold out!
To say the Danimals Edition Helix is rare is an understatement. Looking at the dealer inventory list most dealers only have 1. Some bought 5 at the most! So hurry and call one of these dealers on the list below!

likes loves the Helix…. They really really love it! We don’t have a speech prepared for this special occasion but know that you’re our new BFF. Read the excerpt from their article below but better yet, read the whole article at their site via the link below.
The RIDE Helix made its debut last season, replacing the DH in RIDE’s line. Any concerns about how it would measure up against that legendary stick were quickly put to the sword, and now it has a following all of its own – one that was no doubt bolstered by the sight of Yuki Kadono using his to stomp the first ever back-to-back triple cork 1620s in the 2015 Burton US Open slopestyle.
Watch the Helix Video Review:
If you hadn’t already guessed by looking at the shape of the nose and tail, the RIDE Helix has an asymmetric design. The sidecut on the heel edge is tighter than that of the toe, which compensates for the fact that you’ve got less maneuverability on that side.
Turning is therefore a breeze, aided by the camber profile that’ll grip the corduroy like hell. With its true twin shape and mid flex, it’s just the thing for freestyle as well – especially getting airborne off anything from sidehits to the XL kicker line.
Slight rocker sections help with pressing, and also improve the experience in powder, but there’s no compromise to the edge hold. Whether you’re a Japanese park slayer or a one-week-a-year piste cruiser, the RIDE Helix has so much to offer.
