As you charge hard, Ride makes sure you get the response you need with the new Hybrid LowRize™ profile that gives you both pop and carving ability with a micro-camber zone underfoot. Popwalls™ sidewall construction and Membrain® topsheets keep the energy high and weight low.

Hybrid Lowrize™ shaping amps up performance by adding a level micro-camber zone between the feet. Designed to enhance response and pop while maintaining a playful, surfy feel, Hybrid Lowrize™ gives you the best of both worlds.

    Comments about Ride Machete GT Snowboard 2013:

    This board is all you need to slay you local hill. I ride steeps and trees with this deck, and occasionally hit some park. As long as the edges are sharp, it'll never wash out on hard pack. It is a litle different in pow when the stance is centered, but well worth it when you do a big 180 and feel comfortable when landing. It's just the right stiffness, it handles agressive drops, and still playful enough to butter around. The base is pretty quick and the edge sidewall combo gives mind numbing control on the edges. The ability to ride switch comfortably is awesome. Pop walls definitely make this thing snappy. All these qualities in one package make your sessions seem seamless and diverse.

    Can't say there is anything wrong with this deck, it is pretty righteous. It seems pretty durable, I dropped a 15ft cliff and hit a rock on the landing. The base took all the damage and the fiberglass and core were unscathed. Patched it up with p-tex and it was good to go.

      Comments about Ride Machete GT Snowboard 2013:

      My wife bought the board for me for Valentines Day. With the Rocker / Camber technology, I was able to carve in deep powder while making nice cuts and still having plenty of speed. The next day, I hit the park and the board slid over the rails and handled jumps with ease.

      Great all mountain board and it kept me from carrying two boards for my recent trip out west.

        Comments about Ride Machete GT Snowboard 2013:

        I like to charge the mountain hard, aggressive carving, while hitting natural and created jumps. The Machete GT delivers one heck of a performance. It carves smoothly, glides effortlessly, very stable performing jumps and is forgiving on the occasion when the rider makes a technical error. At 49 I do not hit the park challenges other than jumps. Outstanding performance, keeps a constant smile on my face.
