Ride Agenda - 2012

/images/brands/ride/logo/ride_logo.gif

It might be Ride’s entry level twin snowboard but our tester Aly Mac really liked it. With a centred stance, subtle Lowrize rocker and forgiving biaxial glass the Ride Agenda is a good choice for snowboarders getting into park riding on a budget but who also like to explore the mountain out of the confines of the terrain park. With the Agenda fun and versatility are the name of the game.

2012 Ride Agenda Video Snowboard Review

The Ride Agenda is Ride’s entry-level freestyle board, aimed at beginners for a super low price. The amount of technology included in this ride should easily push the price above what it currently sits at, meaning you definitely will get your monies worth!

This board comprises of a LowRize rocker profile in a twin rockered shape that lifts the contact points out of the snow for a catch free ride underfoot. Between the bindings is zero camber, a completely flat profile that helps the board to remain stable at high speeds. The nose and tail have a slight rocker profile to them that results in the board being flexible for jibbing around the piste and park. For charging the mountain this board is surprisingly stable at high speed and as it’s entry level, unsurprisingly it is really easy to ride. No matter which part of the mountain I was riding I was always having fun and felt sure of the board and therefore in what I was doing. I would best describe it as refreshingly comfortable.

It’s a true twin with an extruded fusion 1500 base; a durable ride that feels the same in both directions. A quality Foundation Tuned Core sits at the heart of the board giving it its flex, strength and pop, and it works well on both kickers and rails as well as in the pipe. The sidewalls are made with a durable which is pretty standard, you might want to upgrade to a Ride board with Slimewalls if you’re likely to be hitting boxes and rails a lot.

If you’re the type of rider who is experienced in the park you’ll want to get a Ride Crush, if it’s a Ride board you’re looking for. However for beginners of any type of riding; be it piste, park or powder I would definitely recommend this board; It would be an excellent first board, especially for its price.

Highlights:
Super easy to ride
Low rise rocker profile
Low cost

Let-downs:
It’s entry level and the spec reflects that

Hey question for you, been riding for about five six years and dable in just about everything.  I really enjoy hittin the slopes as hard and fast as I can while still foolin around in the park.  I only ride at my local mountain seven springs in Pa, its no western mountain we’ll say that.  That being said how entry level and beginer is this board I really like the price, what would you suggest?

Rich Ewbank on December 22, 2011 at 11:52 PM

Hey Mark… I think the Agenda is going to feel too soft for you from what you have said. I’d possibly up your budget and loot at a board with a flat or low depth camber profile that will be fun to ride but also responsive to aggresive riding.

Bill O. on February 02, 2012 at 11:54 AM

hey Mark, just to get an idea i just bought this board more or less just to abuse at the streets, but i’m also confident enough that it’ll hold up to park city and brighton when i head out to slc next month

This board, for the price, is unbeatable! you can not find another board this good for this cheep!

There really are not to many super flashy specs or crazy cambers that come with this board, just a nice flat to rise profile that fits any rider. Easy to ride with a nice Medium Flex (I would estimate and 5/10)

I would recommend this board to the entry level jibber looking to work there way over to the park.

I would also recommend this board to an advanced rider looking for a second board thats going to hold its own wile not breaking the bank.

Super Cheap and Affordable Board that comes fully packed

Bottom line is, this board has no super crazy technology that companies say “YOU GOTTA HAVE”. But is an all around good board. It does the job with out hurting the wallet.
