The Ride Buckwild Snowboard
This twin shape has minimal rocker featuring a long, stable flat zone that extends well beyond the inserts into the tip and tail. The Pop Rods are carbon tubes added to the boards for more pop and smoother landings without added stiffness. The Carbon Array provides total board control in every stance location. 3 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.
Ride’s exclusive Slimewalls are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the urethane in Slimewalls smooths 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. Nearly 50% more steel in the Cleave Edge, delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii. – Michigan Boarder
Read the rest of the review and Michigan Boarder’s Personal Thoughts on the Buckwild:
You can describe Jake Blauvelt in many ways, but two words that resonate with the dynamic rider are: Well Balanced. From his aggressive riding to everyday life, Jake focuses tons of his energy on being well balanced. Yes, Jake kills it on the board, but to be able to consistently perform at such a high level demands dedication and hard work. Jake eats well, unplugs from everything by going fly-fishing, and knows he’s super fortunate to be able to do what he does.
