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!?

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,..?

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 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.

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.
