The Benchwarmer is an aggressive twin shape suited to riders seeking hardpack performance in the park. The Benchwarmer offers the most aggressive camber profile for the riders demanding a precise and crisp ride. The Benchwarmer is at home on the big line of the park and on firm snow. The Twin Hybrid Camber provides stability for jumping as well as aggressive high-speed turns. Asymmetric shaping improves heel-side turn initiation and control with different radii for the heel and toe-side edges. Carbon Array 3™ gives you extra pop without adding stiffness. New Carbon Slim Walls reduce weight, increase damping, increase energy transfer and enhance response stability and durability. The Benchwarmer is a performance-focused twin suited for intermediate to advanced riders looking for hard snow performance in a snappy, predictable twin shape.
Twin Extra Camber: A true twin shape hybrid profile that has more camber than rocker.
Quadratic Side-cut: Blending of three radii to improve turn initiation/exit while providing the best grip possible. This design is uniquely formulated for each model based on its shape and riding style.
Sintered Base: High-end sintered 4000 P-tex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
Performance™ Core: High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.
Carbon Slimewalls: Further improving on Ride's revolutionary Slim Wall technology, Carbon Slim Wall integrates a full-length Carbon-Urethane, composite laminate, that provides additional edge hold and energy transfer over our standard Slim Wall.
Carbon Array Laminates: This power distribution technology provides total board control in every stance location. Widespread carbon stringers placed at the binding zone gather input from any stance width and all pressure angles. Rider input is then channeled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control. Offered in two levels of technology, 3 & 5.
Hybrid Glass: Triaxial on top, biaxial on base; balanced torsional flex and stiffness for better response with speed.
Impact Plates Laminates: Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels, Single and Double.
Standard Top-sheet: Durable Urethane top-sheet material with graphics only RIDE can bring you.
- Cleave Edge™ Steel: Nearly 50% more steel, delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.
- Warranty: 3 Years
- Wide: for riders with 11.5+ boots
Precision, control and pop. The side profile of camber looks like a rainbow. Tried and true, camber has been the dominant board bend in the snowboard industry for almost 40 years. Adopted from the bend of alpine skis, camber snowboards deliver precise turning and edge control, with spring-loaded pop due to the bend in the board, providing better jumping characteristics. Advanced riders tend to prefer this bend, especially for hard carving and high-speed riding. Even when it comes to softer park snowboards, camber boards deliver exceptional pop and control.
However, they are not as forgiving of mistakes and can be more difficult to learn or progress on than a rocker or hybrid bend.
Asymmetrical boards offer an additional dimension to snowboard design. With a designated toe and heel edge, asymmetrical boards truly realize that your foot is definitely *not symmetrical*. The toe edge is generally slightly longer with a shallower, less aggressive side-cut and the heel edge is generally slightly shorter with a deeper, more reactive side-cut. This is all designed to minimize rider fatigue, while maximizing performance through easier, more natural feeling heel-side turns for better response, better carving and more fun!
