Poppy, playful, and fun—all without compromising control.
The Ride Machete Snowboard's poppy feel, versatile shape and flex, and stable yet fun ride add up to create an all-mountain freestyle ride that will take you from park laps to pow runs and everywhere in-between.Designed to make the entire mountain into a playground, the Machete is loaded with technology aimed at playtime. 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 landings. Between the bindings, the Machete uses micro-camber for edge control and 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 more flexibility with de-tuning.
The Machete also uses Ride's proven Slimewalls sidewall technology―urethane sidewalls that absorb impact to smooth the ride and allow you to ride harder, longer. They're also some of the toughest sidewalls in the industry. Along with Slimewalls, Ride’s Carbon Array 3 Laminates add stiffness throughout the board for better board control. All of this technology is built around Ride’s Pop Rods Core, which sandwiches Slimewalls urethane material between flat carbon rods for tons of pop without added stiffness. Ride finishes off the Machete GT with its Fusion 4000 Base—the fastest base material known to man.

I picked the 160 up early this year. Let me tell you, it does NOT disappoint!
I've got a friend who suggested this board when I complained about all other boards I've ridden lately not surfing enough in all conditions. This fixed that complaint. I like a board that controls like a surf board and this does just that.
I've used this board in both pow and on groomed runs and that surfy feel remains consistent. I haven't used this in the park so I can't speak to it there. What I can tell you is that it has got that perfect blend of playfulness and control.
All stacked up with gear I weigh about 180 lbs so the 160 cm feels good. As a park only stick I'd probably go a size shorter.
I can take it anywhere on the mountain. It's that simple.
