Both snowboards are products of The Ride snowboarding company, which is a team built of like-minded individuals with each their own distinct riding styles, all in pursuit of having a good time.

Although there will be similarities between these two boards, the Twinpig is thinner enough, and the camber is different enough to be a cousin of the Warpig.

The Warpig is a broader board than the Twinpig, but the latter will still be wider than the standard traditional twin shape snowboard. The significant difference that separates these two is the asymmetrical shaping on the Twinpig for better heel-side turn initiation.


Which One has More Quality?

There will be different uses for each style of board, including the asymmetrical design that comes with both models of snowboard.

When determining if the Warpig fits over the Twinpig, consider the wider board theory when it comes to powder days or how much easier they get up on top of deeper snows.

Otherwise, there are few situations that will require the wider board to which the Twinpig has consistently been proven to be a better all-mountain board.

In the trick parks and off the features within, you have a slightly lighter weight, which gives it a tidbit of an advantage in the pop category.

Which Model is More Popular?

To put this in a contextual way, The Ride’s Warpig snowboard is designed for those going out onto areas with deeper snow, powder snow days, and in the back wooded areas that are ungroomed.

Unfortunately, there are only a select few numbers of riders out there that participate in this type of adventure-seeking trip. Otherwise, the overwhelming majority of snowboarders go with the Twinpig and its lighter design.

To put it plainly, over the years, these two options from The Ride have been sold side by side, and the Twinpig is regularly selected over the Warpig.


Pros & Cons: Twinpig vs. Warpig

The Twinpig has little to complain about when it comes to riding in just about every sort of snow and terrain combination you can think of.

There is even going to be a go-ahead from the experts concerning the jump and other terrain features to play off while heading down the slope; the issue is that the deeper snow will more often than not have a rider wishing for the wider board.

To which the major pro for the Warpig is the powdery conditions and deep snow situations that arise; this design masters the conditions. Issues are on the groomed sections; you must almost beg the board to turn when coming down the slope.


Price Range: Twinpig vs. Warpig

The truth about these two boards is they do not come cheap; the most inexpensive Warpig was around one hundred dollars, and then other Warpig boards in the five, six, seven hundred plus dollar range.

The bundles that come with boot and bindings will push both models’ packages into the thousand-dollar range; as for the Twinpig as a board, there is hardly one under the three-hundred-dollar mark.

On the upper end of the Twin Pig price range, there are going to be less snowboards above the seven hundred seventy-five-dollar price tag than the Warpig.


Final Verdict: Twinpig vs. Warpig

There are going to be different utilizations that come with riding on either model of snowboard, and the broader boards will do better on the powder. The Twinpig is a thinner version of the Warpig and can be used to ride in most conditions and on most terrains.

The Warpig is a solid board but should be thought more of as an additional board when needed for backcountry adventuring and dealing with feet of new snow in those epic winter storms.

The Twinpig has been pegged as the ride every single day option by most snowboarding experts.
