Ride Machete Wide Snowboard 2012

Strap yourself into the Ride Machete Wide Snowboard and get on the cutting edge of the snowboard world. The combination of Ride’s LowRize™ Rocker shape with the embedded Pop Rods® technology turns the board into a poppy, go-anywhere freestyle twin. Snag a couple of buddies and have a good time slashing up walls on the mountain with the Machete, which may be fun and forgiving to you, but is a death threat for natural hits, and park features.
Rocker Type
LowRize™ Rocker - A twin rockered shape that lifts the contact points just out of the snow and has a nearly flat zone under foot.
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - 6, a mid-range flex rating makes the Ride Machete Wide Snowboard perfect for turning the mountain into your personal park.
Shape
Thin Construction - Features a tapered tip and tail to reduce swing weight, enhanced tip flex, and sidewalls that run past the effective edge.
Sidecut
True twin
Core
Pop Rods® 1.0 - Provides supreme pop and snap
Laminates
Biaxial - 90 degree and 0 degree angles for a fun forgiving ride
Sidewalls
Slimewalls® - The virtually indestructible 85A sidewall technology wins on absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. The urethane in Slimewalls® smoothes the interaction with the snow, wood or metal surfaces you may ride on.
Base
Fusion 4000 Base™ - Hard and durable giving you one of the fastest base materials out there (sintered).
Edges
Cleave Edge™ - Durable, equipped with 50% more steal for unmatched resistance and cracking prevention.
Additional Features
Carbon Array 3™ - Power distributing technology that provides total board control in every stance. Widespread carbon stringers placed at the binding zone gather input from any stance width and all pressure angles. Rider input is then channeled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freestyle
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker is another variation on the rocker theme that seeks to provide a little more hard snow edgehold and pop than full rocker while retaining ease of turning and float. Performance is between a fully rockered board and a flat board.
  • Flex Rating: Medium
    Medium
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
