Bucking the notion that higher priced boards are inherently better to ride, the Ride Manic Wide Snowboard blows your riding expectations out of the water at a price that leaves you free hit up iconic mountain ranges and famed riding meccas. The Manic Wide stays affordable, yet still slays everything from park kickers to fresh powder without leaving you wanting more. This particular version is widened, preventing pesky toe drag from sapping high-speed carves when you're packing big boots. Like its bonkers name suggests, the Manic Wide manages the seemingly impossible task of balancing affordability with riding performance, thanks to Ride's proven technologies packed into a versatile, shred-anything shape. Starting out with its design, the Manic is a directional board that's set-back enough to benefit from improved float and straight-line stability. The Directional Rocker is flat along the board's effective edge, making it highly predictable on carves and super-stable at speed. Tip and tail rocker keep the board smooth and catch-free, with the longer nose rocker bringing the benefit of extra float in the deep stuff we all crave. Ride keeps the Manic refreshingly simple with its Foundation core, which features aspen wood from tip-to-tail for proven durability. Biax fiberglass allows for a bit more torsional flex, which is great for making quick turns without extra stiffness holding you back. Something rarely seen on boards in this price range, linear carbon stringers create a snappy sensation for boosting from jumps and sending natural hits. Another stand-out feature, urethane Slimewalls absorb vibration while preventing sidewall blow-outs when you inevitably thrash the board into tree limbs lurking underneath the snow.

Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
