Description

The Baretta is down for whateva.

Purposely crafted for intermediate-to-advanced female rippers, the Ride Women's Baretta is a highly versatile deck that's great for deep powder days, fast cruisers, and even the occasional park hit. This directional board is set-back for extra float and stability when you're charging steeps and pow-filled glades. Its Mountain Hybrid profile complements its directional freeride shape, giving you micro camber underfoot that blends into a rockered nose for effortless powder riding. You'll find the board's micro-camber isn't as aggressive as traditional camber, yet it still delivers the precise edge-to-edge response inherent to full-on camber without the board being overly grabby or unruly.

Inside this all-mountain weapon you'll find a Performance Tuned core made from durable aspen, snappy bamboo, and lightweight paulownia, achieving a happy-medium blend of responsiveness and lightweight, lively snap. Carbon Array 3 laminates create a powerful feel when you're loading into and out-of turns, as the carbon stringers run to opposing contact points for enhanced energy transfer. Furthermore, you'll find impact-dampening Slimewalls for reduced chatter when you're hauling at scary-fast speeds.

Made a snowboarder out of me

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Felt stable at high speeds, turns and controlled easily... although it is directional, easily ride fakie. Video says it is for intermediate girls, but I am a beginner and did great on it. I read the Baretta is aimed at women with big feet but I have small feet - size 4.5 women's / 3 men's and was able to control it easily. Also took a size smaller than the recommended weight specs, and it was great. Board bottoms are random as pink or purple, and not based on size.

10 years ago I tried snowboarding for 3 days on rental gear. Because I've got tiny feet and am 4'10", snowboard & ski rental shops always gives me kids equipment based on my height, which is wrong for my weight because I'm more filled out than kids. I ended up with a super short board - general non manufacturer calculators place me at 128-138cm boards. As a result I kept falling and thought I sucked.

I decided to buy snowboarding boots so I wouldn't have to wear kids boots as kids rental equipment is never replaced, and then decided to spare myself from an embarassingly short kids board by buying my own board. Even though the Ride website and lady below recommends this board for Intermediate to Advanced snowboarders, and I am a novice, this is the only design I liked. Based on the weight/height chart for this particular board, I should have gotten the 145cm board; based on weight only I should get the 147cm board - huge difference from generic snowboard calculators- but I wanted the purple bottom so I got the 142cm board, which is shown online as purple. When the snowboard came in I learned the board bottoms are "random" between the pink and purple so I ended up with pink bottom anyway. I kept it regardless because I had a trip planned the next day. I figured the width may be better for my foot size and the shorter board better for my shorter stance anyway, and at least it was longer than the one I got before. I took out the 10-year old burton stilleto bindings I had bought and never used and miraculously they fit (yay universal standards) and I was able to screw it right on and ride the next day.
WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I am a beginner by any definition, having bombed out last time so bad at one point I removed the snowboard to walk down the mountain so I wouldn't accidently fall down the double black diamond while trying to stay on the green. Back then, I could not go more than 15 feet without falling, and felt super unstable. But on THIS board I was able to ride flat at a high speed without falling, and felt very stable. I could control it too, I could maneuver this easily turning left, turning right, brake with the back side, brake with the front side, and also ride fakie. Supposedly this snowboard is "aimed at women with big feet" but I have a size 4.5 women's foot and it was great, I had no problems with braking on either edge.
I took this out one day and it got a random chip on the side, don't remember hitting it on anything, so it may not be the most durable.
I was able to snowboard 10 times better on this board than I was able to on a beginners/kids board. I took off one star because I expected a purple bottom on the 142cm, although it is still beautiful, because it chips easily, and because the recommendations almost led me astray from the board w my small feet and beginner status, but it performed better for me than beginner boards supposedly matched to my specs. I now believe that soft "forgiving" beginner boards aren't good for beginners becuase in trying to control the board, it refuses to respond, even if your heel has lifted halfway off the boot. Responsiveness is the way to go.
