THE WARPIG ON STEROIDS
Sharing the same compact volume shifted fully directional shape as the standard Warpig, the 2021 Ride Superpig ramps up the construction several notches to create an absolute powerhouse of a snowboard. Aimed unashamedly at experienced riders, this freeride monster shuns traditional snowboard thinking to deliver a level of performance that will blow the mind of even the most demanding rider. No matter if you’re charging groomers or hitting up waist-deep backcountry powder stashes, the Superpig’s short yet wide shape dispatches it with absolute ease. The secret to its stunning performance lies in the combination of volume shifted shape and powerful state of the art construction. The short, wide, tapered directional chassis with bi-radial sidecut is matched to Ride’s super high-end Carbon Array 5 construction. This combination of innovative design and uncompromising build creates a powerful and dynamic game-changing snowboard that shifts the parameters of what we describe as possible.
Rider Style: Advanced Freeriders
The Superpig is aimed at expert freeriders who are looking for a short and wide high-end snowboard that delivers game-changing performance on the piste and in the pow.
Shape Overview: Volume Shifted Directional
The Superpig’s advanced tapered volume shifted directional shape is designed to deliver the perfect balance of on-piste control with off-piste lift and float. The most obvious sign of this is the exaggerated blunt nose shape. This innovative nose design provides effortless lift and float without ever feeling overly weighty or unwieldy. Ride then matched this with a wide central platform under the feet. By adding width rather than length, you still get the same surface area, but you get that surface are in a far more manoeuvrable form, creating a floaty yet nimble board. The extra width also works well with Superpigs aggressive sidecut geometry by reducing toe and heel drag to an absolute minimum. This results in a board that not only works great in the pow but a board you can crank it with on the piste.
Profile: Directional Hybrid Camber
The Superpig’s Directional Hybrid Camber profile combines an extended rocker at the nose with a powerful setback camber under the feet. This responsive combination steps up the performance of the Superpig another notch from the standard Warpig’s Directional Rocker profile. Hybrid Camber delivers excellent lift and float at the front of the board, while the camber under the feet creates a solid and stable ride on edge while upping pop and power through the length.
Internally the Superpig utilises Ride’s high-end Carbon Array 5 construction. Heading this up is the responsive Performance core. Constructed from a combination of high strength Aspen, poppy Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia, it provides the perfect balance of strength, power and weight. Sitting on top of this are the Double Impact plates, these cushion the bindings from hard landings as well as adding an extra layer of defence against core compression. Now it’s at the structural layers where you start to see the differences between the Warpig and the Superpig. In this instance, they are formed from Ride’s advanced Carbon Infused glass. This advanced material adds 90° Carbon fibres stitched into the glass adding extra pop and response, without adding extra stiffness. These are then further reinforced with the addition of the Carbon Array 5 reinforcing. By placing five carbon strips running from the carbon-reinforced contact points through the binding zones at both the tip and tail, Ride powers up the contact points creating a faster and more responsive tip and tail engagement without compromising torsional twist through the centre of the board.
