Product Info

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.

Product Details

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!


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.


TwinCompletely symmetrical with identical tip and tail measurements and flex pattern


Performance Tuned™ CoreHigh 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.


Carbon Array 5™ LaminateThis 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 GlassTriaxial 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.


Popwalls™ SidewallThis 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.


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.


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


Membrain® Top SheetWeighing 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.
