Dialed freestyle response for well-rounded riders with big boots.
With a floaty twin shape and snappy flex, the Ride Machete GT Wide Snowboard dominates park jumps, natural features, and technical lines with speed and precision. All-new Popwalls and the Carbon Array 5 layout ensure plenty of pop to clear the big jump line, while the beefy Cleave edges handle man-made and natural jibs alike. The wide version of the Machete is recommended for riders with boot size 11 or larger.
As Ride's flagship all-mountain freestyle board, the Machete GT is loaded with Ride's latest technology. The Hybrid LowRize Shape features a rockered nose and tail to give the board plenty of float in the deep stuff and a bit more forgiveness on sketchy terrain and sketchy landings. Between the bindings, the Machete uses micro-camber for edge control and tons of pop. The true twin shape rides and lands with plenty of control and predictability whether straight or switch. Ride’s Cleave Edge edges wrap all the way around the board seamlessly and contain about 50% more steel than standard edges for bomber durability and a little extra material for de-tuning.
The Machete GT is also Ride’s showcase vehicle for its new Popwalls sidewall technology. Ride sandwiches carbon stringers, which come from the rear inserts to the contact points in the tail, into its Slimewalls material to give the Machete tons of pop, enhanced stability, and better response. Along with Popwalls, Ride’s Carbon Array 5 Laminates add stiffness throughout the board for better board control. All of this technology is built around Ride’s Performance Tuned Core, which blends aspen, bamboo, and other lightweight woods for the perfect amount of strength, pop, and light weight. Ride finishes off the Machete GT with its Fusion 4000 Base—the fastest base material known to man.
