Why think so hard? Why not live the Highlife and let Ride worry about all of the technical stuff for you. The new all mountain Highlife is loaded with features like the lightweight slippery Membrain topsheet for a smooth feel, the dampening 90A durameter urethane Slimewalls for increased response, and the Carbon Array 5 with Pop Glass to give the whole thing extra pop but reduce chatter. Plus with the new LowPro rocker shape, this adds a sick amount of loose effortless fun sprinkled with grip and stability. Not to mention gnarly graphics from Spacecraft so all you have to do is chillax, wait until it snows, strap on this beastly, but buttery board and let it Ride. The Ride Highlife Snowboard has a Lowpro Rocker.
Thoroughly impressed with this board. The Highlife handled everything I threw at it. The rocker shape is superb for powder conditions and virtually eliminates the leg burn you get from powder riding. This is because the nose stays lifted off the snow so you don't need to manually keep it lifted. Very nice when carving groomers as well. Super stable and stiff so lighthearted riders need not apply.
