2011 Ride DH Review

My stats: 175lbs, 6'0", size 12 US

I bought the 2011 Ride DH 157cm a few days ago. Here's my impressions so far...

Powder - after setting back my stance I rode in 2 feet of powder effotlessly. For the deep stuff there are faster/more suitable boards but the DH is a solid performer.

Groomers - fast, stable, maneuverable, holds an edge on any type of snow - groomer killer.

Park - saved the best for last - Holy shit! This thing pops like a mother! One of the sweetest boards I have hit kickers with. It will send you up, up, up.

Overall, the board is fairly light and solid built. There have been at least half a dozen occasions in the last few days where I thought I fucked up the base but on later inspection found nothing but minor scratches.

IMO, this is a great board for jumping anything that you can use on the rest of the mountain without compromising on performance.
