Details

DNA has two primary functions, storing genetic information and transmitting genetic information, both of which are made possible by its double helix structure. The snowboard also has two primary functions, turning toeside and turning heelside, and the shape of the snowboard is what makes this possible. The Asymmetrical Twin Hybrid Camber on the Helix snowboard is an anatomically correct board shape that provides more leverage over your heelside edge, which improves heelside turn initiation and control. The double-stranded structure of DNA also provides stability, much in the same way that the traditional camber on The Helix provides that stable, controlled feel. Carbon Slimerods® 2.0 are layers of carbon fiber and urethane included to damp vibration and enhance board response and pop. The Helix is a mid-flexing freestyle twin with an asymmetrical shape for a more scientific approach to turning and it’s designed to give you the consistent snap and aggressive feel of camber.

  •  Performance™ Core
  •  Sintered 4000 Base
  •  Roll-In Slimewall®
  •  Carbon Slimerods® 2.0

BEND:

MULTI CAMBER

A asymmetrical shape with a hybrid profile that has more Camber than Rocker.


SHAPE:

ASYMMETRICAL

Asymmetric sidecut shaping improves heelside turn initiation and control. Offering perfect balance while turning through different radii for the heel and toe side edges, the board just feels right


FLEX:

AGGRESSIVE

7-10 (Scale 1-10)


CORE:

PERFORMANCE™ CORE

High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.

DOUBLE IMPACT PLATES

Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels, Single and Double.



FIBERGLASS:

HYBRID GLASS

Triaxial on top, biaxial on base; balanced torsional flex and stiffness for better response with speed.


BASE:

SINTERED 4000 BASE

High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.


FEATURES:

ROLL-IN SLIMEWALLl®

Unique 3D structure built around our urethane Slimewall ® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.

STANDARD STEEL EDGE

Rockwell 48 C.

CARBON SLIMERODS® 2.0

RIDE’s Slimerods ® give already fun and playful boards the added liveliness to set them apart from other boards. Using strategic placement in the boards tip and/ or tail, this technology adds pop without the stiffness generally associated with snappy boards. Made up of flat carbon rods that wrap a urethane slime-core, Slimerods® have carbon for massive pop and a slime-core to smooth out the landing. Available in 2 levels: Slimerods1.0 & 2.0.

CARBON ARRAY 3™

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.
