Below is a quick overview of the 2021 Ride snowboards collection.
First I will take a look at any new boards for the 2020-21 season, and any old 2019-20 boards that aren't returning with a 2021 model.
Then I'll look at each board and put them into the categories where I see them fitting best.

I have categorized Ride's 2020-21 lineup below. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how Ride labels them.
Of course these are only broad categories as every board is different, but this is a rough guide.

RIDE YOUTH SNOWBOARDS
So there you have the 2021 Ride snowboards.
So just the status quo for 2021 for Ride, as far as boards go - no major changes. There might be some tweaks here and there, but certainly nothing major there.
They seem to have focused on their binings line for 2021, which has had a big overhaul. I'm not so sold on the naming of them, personally, but those might evolve overtime - and the name, of course is not that important!
All the bindings are named either A or C, depending on whether they have an aluminum or composite heel cup. So there's the A10, C-10, A-8, C-8 etc - with the number representing the flex of the bindings. But I will go into more detail for the new bindings in a separate post.
They have also made some additions to their boot line, bringing in the Lasso Pro, Lasso Pro Wide and Anchor boots. And on the women's side, the Context.
