Outside board manufacturers weight limit. Ride DH 157/159
I'm looking at a Ride DH 2012 board for Free riding.
I'm 85kgs with 9.5UK boot, 5'9 height.
I'd like the board to have fast response and so I'm thinking 157 but I'm worried that I'm outside of the stated weight limit.
The 157 just comes up to bottom of my chin.
Ride say 157 max weight of 82kgs for the DH.
The 159 max weight is 86kgs.
If anyone has experience with this, it would be of great help.
Many thanks, Romie
