Ride Warpig 2017 Review by The Good Ride
The Ride Warpig doesn’t feel like it’s name. Instead it feels more like a short fat Gazelle. If this had the same camber profile as the Timeless it would be amazing but it still is a pretty fun ride for a flat to rocker short fatty.
Conditions: Really good Sierra groomers.
Riders: James, Peter, Jimbo
Boots: Adidas Tactical ADV, Burton SLX,
Bindings: Ride LTD
Set Up: Pretty close to centered on side cut, 15 front -12 back approx 23″ wide.
Approximate Weight: Felt pretty light but not fragile.
Flex: Snappy and poppy but still somewhat easy to butter if that’s what you are into.
On Snow Feel: Very stable one footing off the chair or flat basing. Flat to rocker like this makes for an easy ride and we all liked the feel underfoot. It’s a small, light dynamic short fatty.
Edge Hold: Not as much as we like but its fine in hard snow. Ride is generally opposed to doing anything with the side cut and they feel their edge hold is enough but for us we’d like a little more grip than this provides so the edge won’t slide out on a committed turn that starts with soft snow but finds it’s way into a hard patch.
Turn Initiation: Short fatty’s like this offer up turn initiation that’s different than normal freeride boards. It’s got the ability to get a little quicker tight radius turn and throw it around easier than a long narrow waist board but the wide waist is noticeably slower getting quickly from edge to edge in tight situations like trees or bumps compared to a longer narrower waist board. Still it had pretty fun snappy turns for a flat to rocker short fatty.
Skidded Turns: Very easy to skid a turn without consequence.
Carving: Much better than we thought for a board with no camber but still missing that pop out of a hard carve. Still they are doing something pretty good for a flat to rocker board. It only makes me wonder what the board would be like if it had a similar directional hybrid camber profile to the Timless or Bezerker. That would be pretty special.
Speed: Ride makes damp boards and although this isn’t their dampest it’s more damp than it would seem from inspecting it in a shop.
Uneven Terrain: Short fatty’s aren’t really fun in bumps or hammering through messy end of the day resort snow with emerging moguls. It’s the width that’s the problem here. It’s fun in a soft banked slalom though.
Powder: So this has a centered stance and we aren’t sure what the set back on board is. It seems like there is some decent directional float but we didn’t get to test it in powder.
Switch: Much better switch than we though and you can take it each way without having to adjust too much.
Jibbing: Didn’t jib with it but seems like it would be ok.
Pipe: No pipe but not usually into short wide boards when riding the pipe.
Jumps: Nice pop off the tail and it’s pretty good for directional air.

my favorite board right now
So, let me just start by saying that right now this is my go to board...... my favorite board. Basically this took the place that my Prototype two had in my heart....... this is a real "do it all board" and what is most important for me is that this board is FUN...... pure FUN.... and that is the main reason why I give this board 5 starts cause is just too fun man!!!!!!! Basically this is the board I take with me when conditions are not too icy, the only weakness I find in this board is that it does not grip as much as a Lib Tech board or a board with mellow magne or any of those traction system so that is the main reason I don´t use it when is super icy.... for those days I take my Proto. So long story short, is fun everywhere, you can carve, do park, you can do out of piste (you can set your stands back if you feel like it) you can do jumps of any size, the board is fast, light, beautiful looking...... I just can´t get enough of it.
My set up, Malavitas and 32- 3M boots.
