Ride Mtn Pig 162 Snowboard Review 2018-2019

Description

TESTER: Eric Odlin

BOARD: Ride Mtn Pig 162

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  4

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Shape is cool. And I like Ride’s approach to side cut and enjoyed playing with the subtle finesse you could apply to sidecut and turning.

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: I could hold and track at speed like I’d hoped I could. Coulda been me?

OVERALL COMMENTS: I though I would love it, but in the end I only liked it. Not sure why. It performed great, but left me underwhelmed.

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 7:  6

SHAPE COMMENT: FUN TO LOOK AT

ADDITIONAL SHAPE COMMENTS:  Looks twin-ish but with some squared fun on the nose and a wally like cut on the tail. Gave me all mountain vibes.

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 7:   5

FLEX COMMENT:  JUST RIGHT

ADDITIONAL FLEX COMMENT:  Stout and solid. Right where in needed to be to be aggressive.

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS FROM 1 TO 7:   OK

STABILITY COMMENT: PRETTY GOOD

ADDITIONAL STABILITY COMMENTS: I never washed out. Rode a hair smaller than I’d like for a 162 early rise.

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 7:  5

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:  Had good feel for the terrain. Medium damp and poppy.

RATE FLOAT IN POW FROM 1 TO 7:    RADICAL

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: OK

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: Ripped like a “regular” deck, but Fairly traditional feel, with a more nose up and tail down thanks to its nice shape accents join the nose/tail

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 7: 

GRAPHICS COMMENT: OK

ADDITIONAL GRAPHICS COMMENTS: Clean yet DIY looking. Simple, in a good way.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY: A good ride. Although it did blow my mind I know a lot of riders would love this. I really like playing wot side cut while carving and Ride boards are some of the most unique turn feels out there.
