Shlliing, sskkrrep, shhhawaa—those are our sword noises.
- LowRize rocker profile raises contact points at tip and tail to reduce edge hang-ups while still maintaining your pop and control
- Glow-in-the-dark Slimewall 85a sidewalls abosrb impacts and make grabbing easy in the dark
- Cleave Edges use 50% more steel to resist dings and blowouts; the beefier edge also gives you flexibility with tuning
- Carbon Array 3 in binding zones improves edge bite and toe-to-heel transitions on hard snow
- Internal Pop Rods 1.0 feature carbon-wrapped urethane to increase snap and smooth out rough landings
- Fusion 4000 sintered base goes harder and faster than other bases, it also has an atrocious fetish for speed

Love this board. The shape just feels the most natural for me. The only thing i HATE about it is the die cut base. Ive owned 4 of these and the die cut was come apart for me on each one.
Perfect all moutain board
This board lives up to all the hype. Tons of pop and super comfy. My only complaint is that its stiffer than I prefer. But definately worth the money for a board that rocks all areas of mountain.

I'm a all mountain rider,like to hit some park as well as powder,so i'm looking 2 boards in 1... i was researching a lot,and found the machete might be an answer! So,another sizing question just to make sure...i'm 6,3 tall, 190 lbs weight and the boot size is 11,5 ( not reduced size boot ) and to repeat,i like to hit some jumps in park,use bassicly whole mountain as terrain park!?
this is a great all mountain board. peak to park. sizing go with the 160cm or the 162cm depending on your local snow conditions.
Thanks Tim,i almost purchased wide version! So,do you think 160 would be a great choice considering my needs,50% park-50% trees,powder,..?
I'm 5'11" 160 lbs. I wear a 10.5 size boot,...
I'm 5'11" 160 lbs. I wear a 10.5 size boot, would you suggest going with a 157w or 158?
I ride a +15/0 stance if that makes a difference
The waist width of the 158 regular is 29.4 cm, and the waist width of 157 wide is 26.2 cm, so the 158 regular is a bit wider. You should be fine with the 158 regular, I'm fairly certain that Ride's wide boards are made for 11+ boot sizes.
Fun, fun and fun... This shape can take you all over the mountian encouraging the playful side of snowboarding.
Go to Board
I've been fortunate to ride all the Ride Machete board models for the past generations, and it has become a favorite 'Go to Board' in my quiver.
The Low Rise profile is great on anything you can shred. From Park to Pipe, All Mountain to Jibbin', the playful feel underfoot is remarkable. Greet floatation on those Pow-Pow days to boot, especially in trees where snow conditions can vary from one turn to the next.
With the addition of Pop Rods, the board has a more lively response when loaded up, especially nice when playing on rollers or park jibbing time.
I take this board anywhere and everywhere the mountain might lead. Great true twin with versatility to Ride.
Quiver of one
If you do not have the ability to build a quiver of boards and want a board that performs in all conditions then this is the board for you. Yes this board is a twin but it is very versatile and will tackle what ever you can through at it - and here is why:
The low rize rocker will keep you floating in the deepest of pow yet makes it very forgiving which is good for buttering and playing around.
The carbon array 3 makes the board plenty responsive edge to edge and keeps the machete plenty stable through the chop and slop as well at high speed.
Pop-rods give the board additional ollie/nollie pop without adding additional stiffness to the flex of the board.
Slimewalls really dampen the ride and when paired with the thicker edge it makes the sidewall super durable which is nice if your hitting rails/boxes or clip a rock/stump.
"Machete" it cuts through everything!
The true one board quiver
If you are a solid rider, live in Utah, and are looking for one board that can do it all and do it all well, then this is the stick for you. The LowRize rocker that starts just outside the inserts allows the board to transition edge to edge quickly and helps it to be super playful and floaty in powder without being too squirrely. The nearly flat camber enables you to ride harder and longer with ease by not forcing you to fight to depress the camber all day long. The pop rods give the board liveliness without making it too stiff and the forgiving nature of the Slimewall sidewall lessens the likeliness of blowing out an edge if you hit a rock under the snow or land too hard on a rail. Great board for a fair price. I'm 150 lbs. and ride the 158cm version just because I like a little more surface area for deep snow. However, the 155cm version feels just as stable at speed.
