Snowboard Review:

I didn’t even realize that the Manic was one of Ride’s entry level boards until after I’d ridden it, you just wouldn’t think it! I took it all over the mountain, through pow, pipe, sticky & icy piste, kickers and even a few rock drops and it dealt confidently with the lot. Best of all, it was a fun board to ride and really forgiving, definitely a strong performer for the beginner/intermediate rider.

The directional shape gave the Manic a good feel when charging at high speeds and with the rocker profile, helped it to feel really stable, a lot of more entry level boards can be a bit too soft, the medium flex of the Manic was great for all types of riding. My one small criticism would be the switch handling, I do a lot of switch riding and I am constantly popping 180’s, I didn’t think the Manic handled as well ridden backwards. However, if you’re looking for a snowboard to help you progress all elements of your riding and you don’t ride switch much then this board would suit you well.
