Ride Promise

 

RideDescription:
The Ride Promise is brand new for this season and features Slimewalls(R) 90A sidewalls that provide dampening in any conditions, while the Carbon Array 3-stringers distribute power for total board control. For eye-watering speed, check out the durable, hard and fast sintered Fusion 4000 base(TM), and for enhanced response, maximum feel, increased pop and easy manoeuvrability the Promise has a tip-to-tail wood Foundation Tuned Core(TM) and Carbon and Aramid Laminate. Finally, to make sure you dial in those smooth, styled turns Ride have used a quadratic sidecut. Astounding value for money, the Promise is sure to be a big hit this winter.

Slimewalls: skate-inspired Urethane sidewalls are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts for extra smooth riding and durability. Offered in 85A and 90A durameter urethane.

Quadratic Sidecut: 3 blended radii throughout the sidecut offer a manoeuvrable and playful centre radius and smooth tracking, never hooky radii at the tip and tail.

Carbon Array: Ride's power distribution technology is designed to enhance rider response, and works by channelling rider input to the opposing contact point. Carbon strips running from underneath the bindings to the 4 contact points of the board provide more stability at speed, and more response when you make your turns. Available in three levels with 3, 5 and 7 rays.

Sizes: 145, 148, 151, 154

K2 Luna

If you're a confident rider then the Rhythm core plus Kevlar inlays, and Biax fibreglass give you plenty of pop while remaining light and manoeuvrable yet stable at speed. Whatever your level and wherever you ride the Luna is one board that has the performance to let you do it all.

Ride Fever Pitch

RideDescription:
The Ride Fever Pitch has been designed by Ride and their pro-team for the always-charging freestyle femme. If you're a rail abuser but still want a super smooth ride then the Cleave Edge(TM) and 85A Slimewalls(R) technology will do the job. If it's smooth, consistent turns you're after the Transition Radial sidecut gives them to you, and to keep you in control the Fever Pitch uses Carbon Array 3(TM) core inlays. When the urge to jib overpowers you, the new Pop Stixs(TM) add potent pop without the stiffness you usually get with snappy boards, and the Linear Aramid laminate adds even more snap for extra ollie power.

Cleave Edge: Uses nearly 50% more steel than regular edges, delivering unmatched resistance to edge cracking. It can also be detuned to a larger radii. Slimewalls: skate-inspired Urethane sidewalls are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts for extra smooth riding and durability. Offered in 85A and 90A durameter urethane.

K2 Duchess

K2Description:
The K2 Duchess combines the ultimate powder riding experience with all terrain freestyle perfection and this season has a couple of new additions for an even better ride. The new Hybritaper tip tech reduces swing weight for super stylish spins, and the new ICG-20 top and Triax base fibreglass gives you better pop, a livelier feel and improved edge hold and stability. A slightly longer tip and tail lets you float in the deep stuff, while the 4000 Sintered base will keep you flying past your mates no matter what the snow is like. For control and confidence, the Hyper Progressive sidecut provides a consistent, smooth ride, and the new Harshmellow tech kills chatter, vibrations and shock from flat landings and high speed.

Hybritaper tip tech: This construction tapers the core to the nose and the tail to reduce swing weight, making it easier to spin.

ICG (Integrated Carbon Glass): K2 have integrated carbon strips into the fibreglass reducing overall weight, creating a super smooth release of power and increasing pop and liveliness. ICG 10 for freeride - ICG 30 for freestyle.

Hyper Progressive Sidecut: Allows for ultra fine adjustment at any speed and in any conditions. An infinite number of different radius are blended together from mellow in the tips to more aggressive in the centre. This mellows out the transitions for a more predictable ride.

Harshmellow: K2's uniquely formulated synthetic compound dampens the specific target vibrations for each product.

Sizes: 147, 154

Price: £360
