Two Boards In One
A freestyle backcountry shape with options. Lock it up for max tail float, hitting jumps and charging hard, or unlock for a unique flex as you sink the tail into big pow turns or surf your way down the mountain. The unique SplitTail design features a trusted and proven tail clip along with Slimewall inlays around the internal edge for added durability. Including the super responsive Popwalls sidewalls, Carbon Array 3 laminates and Hybrid All Mountain shape, the new Alter Ego will allow you to adjust to snow conditions and riding style unlike any other board out there.
Available next Fall in these sizes: 155, 159 & 162
The tail is unclipped for a softer feel and a deeper sinking tail

Showing flex of unclipped tail during a hard turn. The added flex allows the board to turn much sharper than while clipped.

The SplitTail design allows the tail to sink deeper in deep snow, allowing the nose to rise up, making riding pow even easier and more fun!
It sounds like alot but in a few wiggles of your thumbs, you will be done and entered to win. This high end snowboard aka the Baretta is built specifically for the ladies!
For those who need some good old-fashioned pow-in-your-face freedom, the Slackcountry features an ultralight design and Ride’s powder-specific HighRize Rocker.
