Last year I was all about the Machete, but once I took the new DH2 out last February I completely forgot about my machete.
The biggest change is the rocker design has changed from LowRize to Ride's new ProRize shape. ProRize is not as dramatic as LowRize, the board is completely flat and then the last part of the nose/tail is rockered up about 2mm to get the contact points off of the ground.
The new ProRize carved amazingly well at Snowbasin. I took it on soft & Icy groomers and it carved exactly how I wanted it too, was stable when I pointed it down the steep stuff and held a great edge. We even found some sun baked pow and chop off of the John Paul lift and it plowed through the crud and the prorize rocker was just enough to help keep the nose up in the sun baked stuff.
The other change is the DH2 now has PopRod 2.0. This year Ride will have PopRod 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 in certain boards. The change with PopRods is there is now a layer of urethane sandwiched in between flat carbon fiber pieces, the same urethane that is used in Slimewalls. So now what you get is that crazy pop, but it's smoother and damper. The pop the new Poprods generate is great and you get killer response in the nose and tail while keeping the overall flex of the board about a 6 out of 10. So it's still playful when you want it to be.
Everything else tech wise has stayed the same, but those two changes make this board a must have for the rider that loves to treat the entire mountain like a terrain park, is interested in rocker, but wants something that is stable, playful and still has some of the benefits you get from rocker.
If you're sporting a size 11 or bigger in your boots, you should take a look at the DH2 Wide. If you're looking at upgrading your boots this season too check out the deuce, FUL or RFL from Ride as they have a reduced footprint and a size 11 in those boots will fit on a regular width DH2.
whats the best set of bindings for this board? back country riding, tree riding, pow, big mountain, kickers........no park

Dogfunk.com Price Comparison
Yes, that should not be a problem. However, the site might give you issues because of the strange address so call in at 18773643865 and place the order with a Gearhead.

This board is sweet. I'm glad they changed this board to Prorise. This board wants to land EVERYTHING! This is best alternative to camber. It floats really well in pow. This is my go to board for those backcountry booter days. This is an all mountain killer too. Not just for pow. This does really well in all aspects of the park and mountain.
Will Dogfunk be getting the DH 2.4 or DH 2.5 this season?

We will be getting both the DH2.4 & 2.5 in this year. We expect the 2.4 to arrive sometime around 10/5. Check back 10/5 and if you don't see it keep coming back as it will pop up. This time of year our receiving dock is pretty full and it can take a few days for things to get unpacked and put up on the site after they arrive.

If you're looking for an aggressive rocker board, the DH2 is a great option. Extending the flat zone gives you better tracking, turning and shredding. This coupled with carbon array 5 gives you large booter crusher, and will be responsive to your riding needs as you progress.
Take this stick all over the mountain, but don't be afraid to push its limits!

I don't have this exact board, but I have the DH2 LE series from 2009. It has the same camber as this board and is one of the best park boards out there. It stands tall right up there with the K2 WWW, and the Lib Tech Skate Banana. I have ridden all these boards and love this one equally as much as the others. The only downfall to this board is that the base can get scratched up pretty easily... Watch out for sharp points on rail, rocks, or twigs. This board is an overall winner in my book... If I could choose a board for you it would be this one.
