Taking a radical departure from traditional board design, the Ride Helix Snowboard features an asymmetric twin shape that makes carving and learning new tricks a highly intuitive experience. Based off the premise that heel and toeside turning dynamics are different, asymmetric boards feature a deeper heelside radius for a balanced, effortless ride. Ultimately, asymmetric shaping makes heelside turns quicker and easier to initiate, also improving your switch skills by lending a natural feel when transitioning from edge-to-edge. The Helix is a true twin, meaning it rides forward and switch with a balanced feel when you're spinning through the jump line and getting creative in the jib park. Its medium flex allows you to ride this freestyle specialist without it washing out on carves or feeling squirrely approaching bigger hits. Reminiscent of Ride's iconic DH discontinued a few seasons back, the Helix has traditional camber (previous models had a bit of early-rise) for precise, locked-in turns and plentiful pop when you're sending everything from thirty footers to fun-sized rollers. Inside the Helix, the Performance core maintains a lightweight feel with high levels of durability against regular thrashings in the park. This core is complemented with Carbon Array 3 laminates, with three crossing carbon stringers radiating from the insert packs to the opposing contact points. The carbon stringers amplify the snap of this board, meaning it'll feel energetic when you're loading up ollies and sending jumps in the park. Carbon Slimewalls are urethane-infused for durability against dings and impacts, with carbon inserted into key areas for added liveliness and response.
