FS: Brand New 2011 Ride Highlife 161

Selling a BRAND NEW 2011 Ride Highlife 161cm snowboard. Yes, it's THIS SEASON'S model. Decided I want a different size so it's never been ridden or even had bindings mounted. This is one of the best and most expensive boards that Ride makes, a stick that kills it in all mountain freestyle and freeriding. It's very comparable to the K2 Slayblade, Never Summer Heritage, Capita BSOD, LibTech T.Rice. Jump on this deal for 20% off!


Retails for $550! SOLD SOLD SOLD


Description:
Start living the HighLife with this brand new snowboard featuring the latest rocker shape, LowPro™. With the fun and versatile LowRize™ rocker in the tip and grippy ProRize™ tail, LowPro™ allows you to Ride chill or charge hard. Featuring smooth riding 90A Slimewalls®, Membrain® top sheet and Carbon Array™ 5, this snowboard is effortless in pow, fun cruisin’ with the crew or maching laps at warp speed. You’re destined to cover more mountain on the HighLife, enjoy!

Features:
*LowPro reverse camber shape features a flat tail and rocker nose to combine edge grip, pop, and float
*Carbon Array 5 in binding zone improves edge-to-edge reaction speed
*90A urethane Slimewalls dampen the ride and resist edge damage
*Silencer 5 technology reduces vibration and chatter at high speed
*Urethane-fused Membrain topsheet delivers all the durability with half the weight
*Trippy Spacecraft collab graphics give your ex-hippie uncle gnarly acid flashbacks

The board looks even better in person b/c you can't see the finish in pics. The Ride x Spacecraft collabo graphics are amazing too.

I vouch for everything said about this board including the above comment. One of the sickest designs this year. Ride's boards consistently look 100x better in real life because they always have nuances that cameras can't catch. If I had the money, I'd hop on this awesome deal. Sick board!

If I could make up my mind that I definitely want this board over some other ones I'm looking at, I'd buy it off you right now. Great deal.

After you ride it a few times I would be interested in your opinion of this board.

Absolutely! I post all my board reviews in my blog. In fact, I've got a review on my Slackcountry that I'm about to post pretty soon here....
