Ride Burnout 2020 Review by The Good Ride

The Ride Burnout is a twin with a long effective edge combined with a mellow but somewhat long hybrid camber that gives it good drive regular and switch. It also had above-average edge hold for Ride.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  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.

How This Review Happened:  We borrowed this for an extended demo and then returned it.
Size: 155
Days: 3
Conditions: Pretty great mid-winter snow.
Riders: James (Size 9, 5’10” 185-195lbs)
Boots: Adidas Tactical ADV
Insoles: Sandsole Custom Insoles
Bindings: Union StrataUnion Superpro, Ride LTD

Similar Boards (but not the same) That We Compared This To:
Lib Tech TRS HPNever Summer Proto Type Two, Nitro FuryYes GreatsLib Tech Hot Knife, Stone Message, Signal Disruptor, Yes Not So Basic

Set-Up:  22” Wide. 15 front -15 back.  Centered.

Approximate Weight: Feels normalish but it’s weird. It looks so thin that you would think it would be a potato chip posing as a snowboard but then you pick it up and feel all this reliable girth to it.

Sizing: The 155 felt just right for my specs.

Flex/Buttering: The mediumish flex is pretty doable for buttering but it took a little work to get the tip and tail. I kind of like that medium effort over too easy but it comes down to your weight and strength.

On Snow Feel/Ability Level/Skidded Turns: The Ride Burnout has a very stable bordering on being semi-catchy hybrid camber profile. It’s long effective edge makes this 155 feel like it’s bigger than it’s size but that’s what it’s supposed to do.  Skidding turns when you are off your game is very doable.

Edge Hold: Pretty good edge hold. Ride might be stepping up their game or it might just be the tune or lack thereof of the demo board we tried. In the few hard patches, we had in this great mid/winter snow it gripped well.

Turn Initiation: Pretty fast initially edge to edge but when the edge is set it slows down a bit as the edge is committed to a turn.

Turning Experience/Carving: There is a little more spring out of the turn than I expected and the Ride Burnout is a fun board to make harder turns with and it carves well regular and switch.

Powder: The rocker in the tip/tail definitely helps make this not as much of a cartwheeler as it could be. There isn’t that much setback on board either.

Speed: The Ride Burnout has that same medium flex that many all-mountain boards do and it is a good twin for a straight line or two but it isn’t the board you get from Ride if all you do is point it.

Uneven Terrain: The Ride Burnout does a good job powering over or around uneven terrain and it’s a good all-day resort rider.

Switch: Almost perfect either way.

Jumps/Park: Some can jib well with this but for us average riders it didn’t inspire confidence there. The pipe was fun even though it was pretty messed up in there and it had a good bit of pop and has a stable approach that tracks well into and out of a kicker or natural hit.

So the Ride Burnout is a pretty good semi-technical/semi-aggressive mountain freestyle ride that seems like it’s pretty specialized but as long as you aren’t after deep powder it has decent appeal.
