The MTNPIG is the most aggressive of the Pig series boards. The MTNPIG is designed for long arch high speed turns. Ride the MTNPIG in your standard board length, unlike the rest of the pig series we don't suggest sizing down on this model.
The mountain pig doesn't have the quick turn initiation of the other pigs as it is designed to excel at high speed in wide open terrain. She will turn, but she's plenty happy straight-lining the entire mountain.
The half-moon tail shape helps the tail sink in deep snow while providing a long effective edge increasing overall edge hold for sketchy situations. Tapered Linear Quadratic Side-cut allows for smooth turn initiation and powerful support through the turn without losing grip.
Carbon Slimewalls® enhance response and stability. Carbon Infused Glass provides extra pop. The MTNPIG is running wild and fast through the mountains growing fat on powder and should only be approached by an advanced rider that isn't afraid to point it.
This board is also a favorite for our team riders looking for a big backcountry jump board because it's stiff, fast and stable.
DIRECTIONAL HYBRID CAMBER: A directional shape with a hybrid profile that has more camber than rocker.
LINEAR QUADRATIC SIDECUT: A directional sidecut utilizing Quadratic curvature from the tip to the rear insert pack, then progressing into a linear section into the tail. This creates smooth catch-free turn initiation and powerful support through the turn exit without losing grip.
SINTERED BASE: High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
PERFORMANCE™ CORE: High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.
SLIMEWALLS®: RIDE’s exclusive Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the urethane in Slimewalls® smoothes the interaction with the snow, wood or metal surfaces you may ride on. On top of all that, these babies are virtually indestructible, the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding.
CARBON SLIMERODS®: 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: Slimerods® 1.0 & 2.0.
ROLL-IN CONSTRUCTION: Unique 3D structure built around our urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
IMPACT PLATES LAMINATES: Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels, Single and Double.
CARBON ARRAY LAMINATES: 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.
WOOD VENEER TOP SHEET: Real wood Birch veneer topsheet sealed with urethane for a unique look and a smooth ride.
CARBON INFUSED GLASS FIBERGLASS: 90° Carbon fibers stitched into the glass. Extra pop and response, without adding extra stiffness.
