Are you riding on LSD? Hana Beaman and Megan Ginter are. Got your attention? Introducing Ride Snowboards 2012 women’s snowboard line: Ladies Specific Design (LSD). This gear is made for female riders who shred and need high-performance gear that offer the perfect fit and feel. Ride Snowboards didn’t ‘shrink and pink ’ gear designed for men, and they didn’t cut corners. The LSD Collection is built to accommodate the female form with lightweight material design and an adjustable fit. Here’s the scoop on some of their freshest hard goods.
Cadence Boot- This snowboard boot has a Boa Focus lacing system which
allows riders to crank the knob on the outside of the boot, find the perfect
fit, and easily make adjustments between rides. This boot keeps feet
comfortable with the Impacto insole, which will support the arch and help prevent fatigue later. The Candence women’s boot offers a flexible fit so you can focus on the mountain and not on sore feet or a lose boot.
Bandita Contraband Binding- Want to add some flash to your deck? The bright Bandita Contraband binding features a slingback highback design with a V-Grip strap that will hold your foot securely in place. The Wedgie 2.5 footbed adds spring to your proverbial step and encourages that pop, as you jump onto a box or catch air. Most importantly, this binding is designed to fit a woman’s calf and snowboard boot, which will decrease soreness and promote your natural movement.
Farah Snowboard- The Ride Farah snowboard is built for women who charge the mountain from top to bottom. The Hybrid All Mountain board shape offers versatility and provides a strong, smooth ride while bombing down the hill and carving hard. The Farah is responsive so you can ride fast and throw turns with confidence like Megan Ginter.
OMG Snowboard- Like OMG! Totally. The OMG board is built with the freestyle rider in mind. This board has a playful rocker at the tip and a stable camber for a clean landing. This board allows you to go big without fear of sliding out. Need to see it to believe it? Check out Hana Beaman, who rides the OMG 153 and has three Winter X-Games silver medals.
