Ride Helix

Ride Helix 2017

The Ride Helix has been around for a few seasons now, and is a asymmetrical twin park board. This year it has a regular camber profile, changed from the older season hybrid twin shape.

Features of the Ride Helix

  • Asymmetrical Shape
    No matter if you are riding regular of goofy, the board has a specific heel edge. Because of the way our bodies bend, it is much easier to put the weight of our bodies over our toes (as knees bend that way), which makes toe side turns easier than heelside. To make up for that, the heelside sidecut of the board is tigher or smaller than the toe side edge. Because it is slightly smaller, it means that it takes a bit less effort to get a better heelside turn. Although it isn’t an extremely noticeable feature, the asym shape just means (when I ride them) that the turns feel smooth, easy and natural.

  • Camber
    Regular, old school camber profile, which doesn’t have any flat or rocker sections. Camber is the best for riders who want to go big or fast. It has very good edge hold, is stable at high speeds and has plenty of pop. Perfect for big jumps and park riding. The tradeoff is that camber boards aren’t forgiving.
  • Slimewalls
    Rather than make the sidewalls from the standard ABS material, the Slimewalls are made of urethane, which is very good at absorbing impacts, and absorbing chatter from riding at high speed.
  • Carbon Array 3 Laminates
    Carbon stringers extend out from under the bindings to the contact points.
  • Pop Rods 2.0 Core
  • Hybrid Glass
    A combination that has triaxial glass on top, with biaxial glass on the bottom. You end up with a good mix of torsion and stiffness that will handle well at speed.
  • Fusion 4000 Base
    A sintered base material, that is hard and fast. It does a good job at soaking up wax and keeping the board moving fast.
  • 2×4 Inserts
    Standard binding inserts.
