RIDE

MTNPIG $580

Transworld Snowboarding - - MEN’S ALL MOUNTAIN -

RIDE has a pen of pigs these days, and this is the big­gest, bad­dest, and down­right mean­est of them all. Eas­ily one of the dampest boards in this year’s test, the MTNPIG per­formed best when the gate was left wide open. It ral­lied through chun­der and chop with com­plete con­fi­dence, and due to its ta­pered, di­rec­tional cam­ber pro­file, it pre­ferred to lay trenches, not hang out at the feed­ing trough. But be warned: if you want a board to ride slow and ca­sual, this hog sure as hell ain’t the choice for you. Rid­ers seek­ing play­ful­ness felt awk­ward while those look­ing to haul ass couldn’t get enough.
