If you're a beginning or intermediate rider who makes the entire mountain his playground, the Ride Control Snowboard is your ticket to all-mountain dominance. Ride laminated the Control's full-length wood core with linear strands of carbon fiber to give the board more snap, so you'll power out of turns and ollie like never before. A directional shape and deep radial sidecut lend this freeride board Nascar-like handling when winding your way through the trees. Should you accidentally bonk one, don't worry, the Control's ABS sidewalls and full-wrap steel edges will take the hit. Ride gave the Control Snowboard an extruded 1500 base for easy maintenance, good wax absorption, and fast performance.
