Product Info

Rock out with your pop out on the award winning Ride Machete Snowboard. The Machete is freestyle twin board that can handle anything from pow to icy corduroys due to its fast base, smooth-riding Slimwalls® and durable Cleave edges. The LowRize™ Rocker featured on the Machete eliminates hook and provides tons of pop, resulting in a fun, surfy feel, versatile park board that is built to last. Hack up the entire mountain on a board built for destruction. `

Product Details

Rocker Type

LowRise™ RockerLowRise™ rocker just slightly lifts the contact points out of the snow and has a nearly flat zone under foot. These twin rides are full of smooth-riding fun.

Flex

Feel-O-Meter: 4 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)This is a freestyle all-mountain flex that remains playful enough to destroy the park while allowing you to charge hard down the slopes. Ride's Feel-O-Meter rating is adjusted year to year to align with current industry standards. A board unchanged from last year may receive a new feel number this year if the industry scale shifts.

Shape

TwinCompletely symmetrical with identical tip and tail measurements and flex pattern

Core

Pop Rods® 1.0 CoreRide's Pop Rods® give already fun and playful boards the added liveliness to set them apart from the competition. Using strategic placement in the boards tip and/or tail, this technology adds pop without the stiffness generally associated with snappy boards. Made up of flat carbon rods that wrap a urethane slime-core, Pop Rods® have carbon for massive pop and a slime-core to smooth out the landing.

Laminates

Carbon Array 3™ LaminateThis power distribution technology provides total board control in every stance location. Widespread carbon stringers placed at the binding zone gather input from any stance width and pressure angles. Rider input is then channeled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control.

Biaxial Glass90° and 0° angles are fun and forgiving. Ride's unique glass designs are flatter and more consistent; therefore they are stronger with no gaps or stretching as can be found in woven glass.

Base

Fusion 4000™ BaseMore durable, harder and faster than extruded bases, Fusion 4000™ is the fastest base material known (sintered). Ride invented and owns the Fusion Base™ Technology in which material is formed together for a solid, fast Ride every time.

Edges

Cleave Edge™ SteelNearly 50% more steel delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.

Binding Compatibility

2 x 4 Inserts

      Comments about Ride Machete Snowboard 2014:

      I'm an intermediate-level snowboarder that was looking for a board to help continue improving my skill. Previously, I had an old K2 Fuse, so I decided it was time to upgrade. As soon as the Machete arrived, I took it out and had a great time. Part of my enjoyment may be the fact that any new board would have been better than what I had, but I'm definitely satisfied with my purchase.

      I chose this particular board because of a desire to start learning some tricks while still mostly hitting groomed trails on the hill. Since the board is symmetrical and mostly flat with some rocker at the ends, it's well designed for some play in the park while being a good choice for all-mountain conditions.

      Everything about the board, paired with Burton Custom bindings, made me feel more confident when riding. It just made everything I wanted to do that much easier to keep improving. Teaching myself to ride switch worked better, going off jumps was more comfortable, and I just felt better able to control myself on the hill.

      The board definitely works well for me as a progression out of novice and into intermediate riding while giving me the flexibility to ride all parts of the mountain. It also doesn't hurt that the graphics look super slick on the 2014 edition.

        Spent 2 days on Vermont hard pack and this board rips. Very stable and carves great. Tons of float in pow or flat spots. Very light weight and a pleasure to ride!!

        All around awesome board. Stable and fast with excellent quality and build. Serious flavor in the style department. Only complaint...stiffer than a 4 on the "FEEL-O-METER." Would recommend to all looking for a true twin, all mountain shredder! Enjoy!
