Dominate in the deep stuff with the Ride Slackcountry UL snowboard. HighRize™ shape provides a loose feel with great response.

  • Reverse camber HighRize rocker lets the Slackcountry float in the pow like a dream; it's shaped to give you an ultimately smooth and responsive ride
  • A slightly higher rocker in the front offers float, while the directional twin shape adds versatility for riding switch or slashing groomers
  • Silencer 7™ technology quiets noisy vibrations for a super-smooth ride
  • Carbon Array 7™ stringers in the binding zone channel power to the board for maximum control
  • Hempbrain™ technology lightens up your ride by eliminating the traditional plastic top altogether and offering a lighter, stronger topsheet made of natural hemp fibers
  • Skate-inspired Slimewalls® sidewalls absorb impact and smooth the interaction between the board and snow
  • 90° carbon fibers stitched into the glass lend extra pop without adding extra stiffness
  • Ride Slackcountry UL snowboard features a UL (ultralight) core built for high strength without bulk, and a UL sintered base for extremely lightweight performance and precision
  • Please note: base colors may vary

Ride Slackcountry UL Snowboard - 2011/2012is rated5.0out of5by1.
Rated5out of5byfromBest board I've ever ownedI've owned about 25 boards including 4 T.Rice pro model boards, crush, berzerker, 2010 slackcountry (amazeballs!), legacy, and the dark series to name a few. By far the slackcountry lineup is the best board for my riding style. I'm super bummed that they're not bringing it back to REI for the 2012-13 because the new graphic is amazing. I'm a designer and a typography geek so other than the 2010 board the '11 and '12 boards where lackluster graphicly but still amazing boards to ride. They sort of put a paper bag over a super models face where other brands put lipstick on a pig. Congrats to Ride for putting this board together and making a sick graphic for the 2012-13 board. Shame on your REI for not carrying it because you're scared we might not get snow... WHICH WE WILL!
