Ok, ladies, I know some of you have found yourself in the same predicament – often times I am looking for a bigger snowboard to ride some sidecountry action, but they simply don’t exist unless I want to step up to a men’s model. Other times I want to play around on a shorter board, but my size 8.5 boot doesn’t fit on a size 148 board. Right Sized board shaping is a revolutionary approach to ladies snowboards that addresses just that.
For many years now, ladies’ snowboards have been similarly shaped with consistent offering of lengths, width and flex. Our Ladies Specific Design (LSD) Total Shaping approach to snowboards provides the perfect combo for not only a woman’s build, but how we are going to use the board and where.
The newest addition to the Ride line up is the Baretta. What is unique about this snowboard is the Right Sized component. Taking our LSD Total Shaping to a whole new level, the Right Sized Series opens up a world of board size opportunity to a broader range of women riders. This new board profile allows ladies to ride a longer woman’s model with more float (offered up to a size 157), perfect for big mountain charging and pow, or ride shorter without the toe drag if that better suits your riding style. Ultimately it gives you the freedom to ride what size is right for you regardless of your boot size.
Prop’s to our engineers for innovating the new snowboard shape and catering to our needs, and also to our lady testers that participated in the Mt. Hood blind test that refined the Baretta, allowing us to put the best performing Right Sized snowboard out on the market.
