Pros: Stable, good carver, easy turner

Cons: none for now

Newbie to boarding, upgraded to the Ride Control after a few weeks on a K2 beginner board.  What a step up!  Immediately felt much more stable at speed.  Equally adept at carving as the softer flexing K2.  I don't head anywhere near the park, so the directional shape and freeride sidecut works very well for me.  Not up to speed in riding in snowy conditions except for light powder (< 2").  So far the board seems to handle light chop well.  Enough strength to plow right through without sending me off-balance.  A great board for the beginner rider moving up the experience ladder.

Description:

If you're a progressing rider who makes the entire mountain your playground, the Ride Control Snowboard is your ticket to all-mountain dominance. Ride laminated the Control's full-length wood core with linear strands of carbon fiber to give the board more snap, so you'll power out of turns and ollie like never before. A directional shape and deep radial sidecut lend this freeride board Nascar-like handling when winding your way through the trees. Should you accidentally bonk one, don't worry, the Control's ABS sidewalls and full-wrap steel edges will take the hit. Ride gave the Control Snowboard an extruded 1500 base for easy maintenance, good wax absorption, and fast performance. *We can't control what base color you'll get. But they're all rad, anyway.
