If you're all about boosting off cattracks, tapping trees and jumping those pesky "slow ski zone" signs, you need a board built for all-mountain freestyle destruction: the Ride Machete GT Snowboard. Its incredibly playful and surfy feel is brought to you by a Hybrid LowRize™ shape that features LowRize™ rocker in the tip and tail and micro camber underfoot, paired with carbon and Slimewalls™ Sidewalls. Ideal for going big while remaining extremely agile, the Machete GT is ready to slice and dice whole mountain to shreds.
Rocker Type
Hybrid LowRize™ - Hybrid LowRize™ amps up the performance by adding a level of micro-camber zone between the feet. Designed to enhance response and pop, while maintaining that playful, surfy feel. The Best of both worlds!
 
Flex
Feel-O-Meter: 5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - This is a medium flex designed for all-mountain freestyle riding. 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
Twin - Completely symmetrical with identical tip and tail measurements and flex pattern
Core
Performance Tuned™ Core - High strength Aspen is combined with bamboo and other lightweight woods to provide the perfect balance of strength and light weight. Ride blends the proven strength of pop and feel of specific woods with added dampening materials and composites by mixing natural wood with high-energy "uppers" and vibration absorbing "downers" to create a core tuned for maximum snap and feel.
Laminates
Carbon Array 5™ Laminate - This power distribution technology provides total board control in every stance location with widespread carbon stringers placed at the binding zone to gather input from any stance width and pressure angles. Rider input is then channeled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control.
Hybrid Glass - Triaxial fiberglass on top and biaxial on the base results in balanced torsion and stiffness for better response at speed. Ride's unique glass designs are flatter, more consistent and therefore stronger, without the gaps or stretching of woven glass.
Sidewalls
Popwalls™ Sidewall - This totally unique sidewall combines layers of Slimewalls® material and carbon strategically placed at the inserts out to the contact points in the tip and tail on a twin, and the back inserts to the contact points in the tail on a directional board. This exclusive tech enhances the charging riders' experience as Ride has moved the carbon pop construction to the outside edge for better stability and enhanced response.
Base
Fusion 4000™ Base - More 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™ Steel - Nearly 50% more steel delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.
Topsheet
Membrain® Top Sheet - Weighing less than half of traditional plastic top sheets, Membrain® maintains a smooth feel by infusing urethane into fabric. Along with pushing limits in the world of light weight, this process also allows Ride to push the boundaries when it comes to graphics by utilizing the textures and aesthetics associated with a variety of fabrics.

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/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker shapes seek to give you both hard-carving edgehold on firm snow from camber underfoot with enhanced turnability and float in powder from the rockered tip and tail. This profile is increasingly popular for freeride boards designed primarily for soft snow.
  • 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.
