Get your party pants on, because the Ride Crush Snowboard is nothing but pure unbridled fun. Everything you could ever want in an all mountain freestyle snowboard with the added bonus of Slimewall side wall construction, an ultralight weight and durable Membrain top sheet complete with virtually indestructible Cleave Edge construction. The Crush is out for total mountain domination and will let nothing stand. sit or lye in it's way.
The Ride Crush is an outstanding board. Super soft and skatey feel but enough grip in the rail to do some low to mid speed carving. It gets a little squirley at speed, but that can be attributed to the flat base (if you like speed, i recommend a board with camber.) The flat base makes it easy to get onto rails and boxes, but be wary, this board DOES NOT have pop rods, so you don't get much higher that you actually jump from flat ground. That being said, this board held it's own going through some kickers in the park. Amazing park board, definitely recommend it. (using sapient bindings)
I'm 5' 8" 135lbs. Been riding 24 years. I ride a 155 Never Summer Cobra usually, but I wanted something shorter and softer for playing around. The Cobra is rated as a 5.5 for flex, so I went with this board since it was cheap and rated at a 3 on flex. Well, the Cobra is softer, I'd give this board a 6 on flex, not a 3. I hit 70mph on it toady and it was totally stable. Good for the board, but not the 3 I was looking for. Again, good board, but not a soft park board.
ive been using this board for about a month and i have no complaints about it. i mainly do park but it feels fun when free riding. easy to turn and carve. it has good pop to it. feels good on rails and jumps. great all mountain board and i would recommend it to anyone.
I have a 153 gnu park pickle with a flex of 5.5-6 and I am looking for a shorter board with more flex to goof off on and ride the park with. Will this board be different enough with the 3 flex and length of 147 to really notice a difference? (I was looking for a board in the low 140's but they are much harder to find)
Thanks for including your son's weight, that is the most defining factor when selecting the proper board length. Being a beginner at 180 lbs. and 5'6" he could ride boards between 154cm and 158cm. I'd choose the 155cm Ride Crush Snowboard for him.
I'm 5'11 and around 160. Is the 155cm too small for me?

Best Answer:What type of riding will you mostly be doing?
The 155 rider weight you are in for sure. It is a shorter length which would be great for freestyle/ park riding. If you are mainly free riding and not hitting too many rails and jumps you might want to go a little longer.
I know I out way any board I ride but I like that for jibbing!
Best Answer:Honestly, i wouldn't purchase this board if you're thinking about emphasizing carving and stability. This board feels real soft and loose. Although it's labeled as an all-mountain/freestyle, you can tell this board just loves to be in the park.
I'm the same height and weight as you. I got the 155 and it's great. I do a little bit of everything with it. This board it by far the best board I've been on so far. I have noticed that at higher speeds it does get a little harder. But it's nothing a few quick carves can't change.
You fit within both weight ranges of the 155cm and 158cm Ride Crush Snowboard. The 158cm will be more stable at high speeds and while cruising around. Remember the Crush is pretty soft snowboard with a flex rating of a 3 out of 10...
Well I'm 5'9-5'10 or so with snowboard boots on and weigh about 166 and the 155cm works perfect for me. I can easily control it on the mountain going fast and it works great still in the park with how flexible it is and it's not even broken in yet.
I'm 5'10" and weigh 160. I ride the 155 in this board. I use it as my park board though so I wanted it a little short. My other board is a 158 Salomon. I ride it on pow days and all mountain adventures.
What is the difference from the crush and kink ?? Because I don't. Know what 2 get
A shopper on Dec 3, 2014
Best Answer:The Crush has a larger amount of reverse camber to it and is a small amount softer. More free ride/park and the Kink has a mini section of reverse camber at the tip and tail but is mostly flat based. Great for the park!
If you are mostly riding park I would go to the kink.
I have the Kink. Great Board, but the Kink is going to be more of a jib board, fun to use in the park on the boxes and isn't bad on the rails and has decent pop on the jumps. It also cruises around the mountains good too. Not too familiar with the crush.
I am 5 foot 6 105 lbs with a size 9 boot I love the park and jumps but like carving sweet powder it this board good for me? And what size?
A shopper on Sep 22, 2014
Best Answer:well, i'm right around your height, maybe even a little shorter, with the same size boot and I bought this board and love it. I occasionally do jumps and rails and such but also enjoy just carving down the mountain. So we're about the same height and I bought a size 147 board. I like having a smaller board so i feel more in control of it. The board i had before this one was actually a size 144 so i actually went up a size but i still love it.
I'm 6'0" at 200lbs, and I was very impressed with my Ride Crush board. I'm more into All Mountain riding than park riding, but I know for a fact this board would serve well on both fronts. Carving is super easy as this board has/holds a great edge. It definitely flexs enough to allow for different riding styles. I don't think you would be disappointed with this purchase.
This board feels like riding on a stick of butter. It's extremely soft. If you're focus is freeriding pow, I would stay away from this, as it isn't very responsive. However, if you like a laid back ride, you'll be fine on the Crush.
Best Answer:By your height the suggested board size is 153, but because of the 225, you will want a stiffer board and a longer blade to be able to stop, so something like 158-161 boards would work better for you.
Best Answer:It would physically fit, but have overhang. Not advisable. Generally I suggest that riders with size 11+ boots ride boards that have a waist width of 25.8cm or wider UNLESS the boots have Shrinkage Reduction Technology.
Best Answer:Teddy, Much of your final decision will be your own personal preference, and the style of boarding you do the most. That said, Ride suggests the 155 would work for you... though I personally think it may be a tad short.
Best Answer:The Ride Crush Snowboard and Ride Agenda are very similar in flex, the Crush has slightly better/lighter materials and a little more pop for ollies. Other than that they are both really good boards for the money!
