  • Regular price $429.95


 The Kink is a street machine. Designed with a focus on predictability and durability for urban and park riding, the KINK is at home on handrails and jibs. The Kink is the board of choice for Jed Anderson and many team riders when riding in the street. The Extra Camber profile has camber underfoot for pop and smooth turn initiation with a minimal amount of rocker at the tip for predictable catch-free performance. A Quadratic Sidecut provides predictability and edge hold. Slimewalls® and Cleave Edge™ provide a smoother ride and increased durability. The sintered base is harder and more durable. The Kink is a board designed for modern freestyle and street performance.

“The kink to me is the perfect board, not too stiff but still super stable. It’s not too soft, but soft enough I can hold a press. It’s stiff in the spots it should be to keep the pop in the board. I can trust it when going fast but also know I can be intricate with it and do technical tricks. I’ve been lucky enough to do the Kink graphic for the past few seasons. When creating a graphic I just want to make something original and authentic, I want the board to stick out from everything else on the market. I always think back to when I was a kid and got to go to a shop and pick out a board, I wanted something different and the one that stood out. This year I wanted something simple and bold, you could see it from 100 ft away and know “yeah, that’s the kink.”

TWIN HYBRID CAMBER:

A true twin shape hybrid profile that has more camber than rocker.

LINEAR QUADRATIC SIDECUT:

A directional sidecut utilizing Quadratic curvature from the tip to the rear insert pack, then progressing into a linear section into the tail. This creates smooth catch-free turn initiation and powerful support through the turn exit without losing grip.

SINTERED BASE:

High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.

PERFORMANCE™ CORE:

High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.

SLIMEWALLS®:

RIDE’s exclusive Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the urethane in Slimewalls® smoothes the interaction with the snow, wood or metal surfaces you may ride on. On top of all that, these babies are virtually indestructible, the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding.

ROLL-IN CONSTRUCTION:

Unique 3D structure built around our urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.

BIAXIAL GLASS FIBERGLASS:

90° and 0° angles, fun and forgiving.

IMPACT PLATES LAMINATES:

Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels, Single and Double.

STANDARD TOP SHEET:

Durable Urethane topsheet material with graphics only RIDE can bring you.

CLEAVE EDGE™ STEEL:

Nearly 50% more steel, delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.
