BEST BOARD YET!
I have been riding 20 years now and I have been on a lot of decks. This is the best board I have ever ridden. It holds an edge on ice, charges through choppy, bumpy conditions, floats in pow super good thanks to lowrize rocker. The slimewalls take out all the chatter. The board is super lively and has tons of pop!! Its super light too! Ride has this thing figured out no doubt!!! Some people think this is just a park board, but this thing will charge the whole mountain!!! This is for real!! I have size 11 Ride Duece boots and I am 6'3" and 230 lbs. I am on a 161 wide. Its perrrrfect!!!
Just blew out the edge of my Nitro MFM 159...
Just blew out the edge of my Nitro MFM 159 Wide and am now looking at reverse camber, specifically the Ride Machete. Wondering if anyone can advise if there is a deference in determining the right length between camber types? I was fine with the MFM, but have read a lot of reviews on the machete and think that's my next addition. I just need to figure out the proper length versus the two. My MFM at159" Wdie was good for both high speeds on groomers and backcounrty powder. I'm 6 ft around 189lbs. I have my choice of 157 Wide or 161 Wide. Any thoughts from the reverse camber experts?
Slays it All - All I Need
Everything about this board is just amazing. Coming off of an old Ride Decade 151 gave me a lot of perspective on how the tech performs on this deck. Slimewalls offer a smooth board feel on the hill and on rail features. Lowrize rocker is great for floating in the pow and not being hooky or twitchy; also great for spins and landings when you are a little forward/back in the spin and able to hold it down for the landing and not washout. Had some worries that it might be too soft for being able to charge the steeps but a few runs in I knew this was the perfect choice. You can rally this board down anything and feel completely stable but it is still playful to butter around and press the box. The Carbon Array 3 keeps the board poppy in the nose and tail and helps keep the edge when needed. If you are the type of rider who is on the first chair of the day to catch those perfect pow runs and then for the afternoon throws down on every feature in the park - The Machete is what you need.

I'm stuck between the Machete 161W and the 164W. I'm 6'1" / 195 lbs. Mostly doing mountain riding and some park. I like the design (color) of the 161 much more then the red in the 164. How much of a difference in 3 cm's going to make?
the 161 is a better size for you for all mountain/park riding. You only need a wide board if your boots are size 12 and up
Alright its definetly time for a new board...
Alright its definetly time for a new board and ive been looking at the Ride Crush and the Ride Machete or even the JibTech Skate Banana suggestion between the three? Ive also been rockin the same burton 163 for 5 years and ive made the transition to the park and its too stiff and bulky to get real technical so im looking to downsize...im 6'2" about 175-180 would I be alright with a 159 or even a 157?
For sure, I'm the same size and I ride a 159 all over the mountain. Depending on what you're looking to focus on you could ride a 157 but I wouldn't recommend it unless you're getting three different boards for different conditions/riding. Having said that, you can do it- it just might limit you on a powder day.
skate banana - no doubt..one of the most fun boards i've ever ridden AND because of it's reverse banana tech it'll float like crazy in powder which means you actually could downsize to a 157 because you're looking for a park/jib board..plus for those massive pow days you've still got the floaty 163 in your quiver

I wear a size 11.5 Burton Moto boot. What waist widths should I be looking at?
Hey bro! I also have an 11.5 Burton Moto.....I have an exact width that you need to look at. Since I am also a big footed rider the MINIMUM WAIST WIDTH that I look at is 24.8(248mm). If it is smaller than that you will drag your heels and toes. I don't know how many boards I have gone through to tell you that but it's the truth! Take care and board safe homie!

I want to get a board that will kill it in the park, but still be decent shredding the rest of the hill. I'm tied between the Machete and the Capita Horrorscope...I feel like the machete might be a bit too stiff for what I want. I don't know which one to go for?!
is this the 2010 w/ the reverse camber?

Sure is, read the review below by Mr. Tidbit and learn all about the goodness. "Don't bring a banana to a machete fight"

I need a board that is flexible enough for me to do park, but when i want to straighten out down the mountain, i need stability for the speed. I ride in PA, and i want to buy either this deck or the Ride Crush... Any suggestions?
Also, i have an 11 size foot and am more comfortable riding a 156cm
The machete can practically slay the whole mountain. It would definately be the best choice for you. For size 11 boots, you should probably get the 157 wide. You can't go wrong with this board.
Best Rocker, Reverse Camber Board for 2010
The main problem with Rocker/Reverse camber is that you sacrifice effective edge, which in turns limits your ability to carve. The best way to describe it is that you feel like your effective edge is only as long as your stance is wide.
Why is that bad? When you go to initiate a turn you need to shift your weight forward to flatten out the nose of your board to get the contact point down and initiate the turn. While you're in the turn, when you shift your weight to hold the turn or to start to exit the turn the nose of the board tends to come up, giving you that washy/unstable feeling.
Another problem is the lack of pop in the nose and tail, you simply cannot ollie like you are used to. You have to focus the energy just being your binding to generate enough force to spring, even with that you still don't get the same amount of pop. People give me shit about this saying that it's like doing it on a skateboard and it's not a big deal, but I'm a really bad skater and I'm not looking to get that kind of feel when I ride.
Saying that, Ride has some solid contributions to the technology for 2010. What Ride has done for years that other companies are just starting to jump on with is Carbon Array. Having the carbon run from the binding inserts out to the contact points, but no carbon running tip to tail causing the entire board to stiffen up. What this does for rocker is it keeps the board flat during turns and as you shift your weight to hold the turn or exit the turn the nose doesn't come up and cause a washing unstable feeling. The new Radial Blendz sidecut also allows for smooth transition from the flat section of the board to the rockered sections providing more stability during turns and at higher speeds.
Having the Carbon Array in their boards with Rocker is also a huge advantage as it keeps the nose and tail poppy. You don't have to focus your ollie just behind your binding like you do with other Rocker/Reverse camber boards. The energy trasmission through the carbon array allows for you to ollie like you would on a regular camber deck.
I haven't been a huge fan of Rocker/Reverse Camber, but the machete has changed my mind and is def. a board that I will be adding to my 2010 Quiver. If you were a size 10.5 or smaller, check out the regular model of this board as you don't need the extra width. Also, Ride has done some great videos this year that are worth checking out if you want more info about their product.
Edit: For those of you that read Snowboarder Magazine... My review for the Machete is featured in the 2010 Snowboarder Mag Buyers Guide, pg. 139.
