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.
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.
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.
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
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
