Ride DH2 - 2012

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

Revised for this season the DH2 drops last year’s Prorize profile for the all new Hybrid Twin profile. The addition of camber under the feet increases on-edge performance and ollie pop meaning that hard icy days when you might have previously retired the DH2 to the garage and taken out an old cambered for a shred are all in the past. A versatile twin for park riders who don’t want to be confined to riding kickers, jibs and rails all day.

Manufacturer's Description:

What colour is powder?

DH2 155cm (2012 model) Ride Capo bindings Burton Moto boots

Me: Beginner/Intermediate 185cm and (about) 80kg

Conditions: Piste/Park/chopped up powder

This board is great on a hardpack piste and park, the edge hold is fantastic!  Before I went away I’d decided I really wanted to get some proper speed up this time and this board let me do it with confidence (something I was unable to do on the last board I rented, a Custom Flying V).  There is minimal chatter and It’s really stable at speed, medium to firm flex, and turns are locked in, solid and stable.  The board gives good pop and stable landings, as you’d expect from a park board.  Bit too stiff longitudinal for presses though, better for jumps than rails I feel.

I took the board through some chopped up powder fields and it was pretty average here.  Admittedly it was short to be riding powder on (for me) but I also dont feel the micro-rocker in the nose was enough to really make it work there.  I swapped it for a softer flexing directional Ride Manic after some heavy snowfall and that was much better.

This board is brilliant in the areas it’s designed for though.  If you’re into park I’d recommend you test one as I’m sure you’ll be very impressed :)
