Product Info

Ride Machete GT Wide Snowboard 2013: Beefed up and ready to slay the entire mountain the Ride Machete GT Wide Snowboard takes your freestyle moves out of the park and into a bigger sandbox. 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.

Product Details

Flex

Flex rating: 7 out of 10 (1 soft - 10 stiff)

Designed for experienced riders with bigger feet who like to cruise the whole mountain and are equally at home working natural and manmade features. It has the perfect shape to take you anywhere on the mountain with a smooth, fluid style.

Shape

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.

Construction

Thin Con construction has tapered tip and tails to reduce swing weight, enhance tip flex and run the sidewall past the effective edge.

Hybrid Glass features triaxial on top and biaxial on base for balanced torsion and stiffness

Skate-inspired Popwalls™ sidewalls combine Slimewall® and carbon Pop Rods® for response and stability

Carbon Array 5™ has carbon stringers placed in the binding zones to focus energy and ensure precise response

Additional Features

Membrain® is a thin, light topsheet created by infusing urethane into fabric that weighs less than half of traditional plastic top sheets.

Cleave Edge™ gives you extra edge material for greater durability and more base bevel options

Fusion 4000 Base™ is a durable, harder and faster sintered base

2 x 4 inserts

    Overall, this is a great board. I did my homework and knew exactly what I was getting: stiff, twin shape, great for carving and freeriding. I rode it in both good and icy conditions and it performed really well both times.

    Comments about Ride Machete GT Wide Snowboard 2013:

    Great Board for anything you want to ride. Rocker on the outside helps this board float in powder, even at slow speeds. Has good contact points that bite when stomping landings. Not a lot of torsional flex but tip to tail this board has a lot of pop. Perfect flex for riding all mountain/powder and park jumps/rails/jibs. Good balance of stability and butter.

      Comments about Ride Machete GT Wide Snowboard 2013:

      The Machete gt is an excellent all mountain board. I was very happy with how it transitioned between park runs, and free riding. Being a snowboarder on the east coast, with a girlfriend who ski's, it is perfect for me to have a board that carves hard in the icier conditions free riding with her, and allows me to escape the girlfriend to ride park. The only thing lacking in performance for me with this board is it's stiffness, I wish it flexed a bit more. Overall I am extremely happy with my purchase and would recommend this board to anyone who likes to do a little of everything the mountain has to offer.
