Ride Mtn Pig 160W Snowboard Review 2018-2019

Description

TESTER: Chris Pearson

BOARD: Ride Mtn Pig 160W

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  5

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Good control and pop

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: I set up my bindings at the reference stance and when I strapped in I was surprised how centered the stance was. I wish I had set back my bindings a bit, it felt like it should be a little bit more set back for such a directional shape.
