Ride Agenda 2023 Review by The Good Ride
Ride Agenda Snowboard Video and Written Review
You have arrived at the Ride Agenda Snowboard Review from an average rider with extensive board knowledge and an exceptionally objective perspective.
Turn Ons/Swipe Right: Fun, forgiving, stable low-cost park to mtn freestyle ride.
Turn Offs/Swipe Left: Not as much pop as some twins.
The Ride Agenda didn’t pop super hard but everything else about this ride worked very well at this price point.
Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews and this is our unfiltered opinion. We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.

James’s Set Up: 21.5” Wide. Sance Angles +15/-15. Close to Reference.
The Ride Agenda felt pretty normal. Some lower cost rides can be heavier and this isn’t. (We don’t put in the exact weight because with wood cores there is no consistency in a boards weight)
The Ride Agenda 155 felt pretty good for me for my size 9 boot size and not bad for my weight. I wouldn’t want to size up or down for mtn freestyle to park riding.
Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level
The Ride Agenda is a true twin with a centered stance and it rides super well centered but doesn’t mind a front foot or back foot heavy turn.
The Ride Agenda’s mellow camber between the feet going to a good bit of mellow (not that high up) rocker before the nose/tail has a very stable feel. It’s got that camber stability that tracks well but doesn’t feel catchy.
The pop of the Ride Agenda isn’t super snappy but its doable and very easy to butter.
I had no problem in uneven soft snow but I didn’t expect anything less from Ride. Even for a softer twin.
The Ride Agenda isn’t super grippy in hard to icy snow but still is competent. It might not grip as hard as some but it doesn’t grab at all in softer snow.
You don’t get the Ride Agenda to bomb but it’s more than competent on a moderate straightline.
I wasn’t super impressed with the base glide but it’s hard to be critical at this price point. It’s about what you would expect.
The Ride Agenda initiated a turn pretty quick but then didn’t take that quick initiation into a tight radius. I liked its versatility for all kinds of turns but didn’t really feel like I had a ton of spring out of the turn.
No powder to speak of but it seems like it will do well for a centered stance twin in pow. Not a board to get if you like to set your stance back in powder.
Very versatile park ride. I’m not a park guy but I would feel comfortable on the Ride Agenda trying new things. It rides switch very well, did fine in the pipe (for how I ride it) and seems like it would be super comfortable on most jibs.
So the Ride Agenda isn’t going to blow minds when it comes to pop but it’s not dead either. Everything else about this ride will be fun.
