Ride Slackcountry UL - 2013


The Slackcountry UL is for those riders who love the backcountry and spend a lot of time riding powder and variable snow but aren’t quite ready to start riding a fully directional snowboard. With an almost-twin shape, slightly set-back stance and Ride’s HighRize Rocker (centred between the feet with a more pronounced rocker on tip than on the tail) this is the perfect board for the backcountry freestyler. If you do a lot of hiking then the lightweight construction of the Slackcountry will definitely pay dividends.

Manufacturer's Description:

This ultra light snowboard features our HighRize™ shape built with slightly higher rocker in the front than the tail and maintains a loose feel that retains response. The versatile twinish design of this all mountain snowboard allows you to dominate the deep stuff, slash groomers and easily ride switch. Complete with our Hempbrain™ top sheet and all the latest UL techs, you’ll float in pow like you’ve always dreamt, but don’t bother pinching yourself ‘cause this Ride’s for real.
