Pop Rods 1.0
POP RODS 1.0

More pop and smoother landings without added stiffness. Available in 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0.

Slimewalls®
SLIMEWALLS®

Ride’s exclusive Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the urethane in Slimewalls® smoothes the interaction with the snow, wood or metal surfaces you may Ride on. On top of all that, these babies are virtually indestructible, the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding.

Carbon Array 3
CARBON ARRAY 3

This power distribution technology provides total board control in every stance location. 3 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.

Cleave Edge ™
CLEAVE EDGE ™

Nearly 50% more steel, delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.

Comments about Ride Snowboards Machete:

Picked this bad girl up in NZ. Since then we've visited the icey blacks of Turoa, the off piste pow of Japan and back home on Aussie 'snow' this board has not let me down. Looking forward to our holiday to Canada.

It is a little stiff but so am I.

    Comments about Ride Snowboards Machete:

    I went to a specialist boardstore a friend recommended, I was planning to get. everything new. First I got a pair of new boots and bindings and finally I got to choose from 3 boards, all of them were Ride boards, because of my experience it became the Ride Machete 164 wide. I used it for one week in Austria and had a Fun time, no complains! Can't wait till next year, tegen we are going to Dolomites, Italy.

      I rode this board with Union Metafuse bindings and Burton SLX boots. All new. After 3 days of tweaking, I was one with the board. Rode Niseko and Rusutsu in deep powder and icy conditions. Wiped out my mates in races and jumps. They wanted to use my board to race. Enough said.

      Comments about Ride Snowboards Machete:

      I bought the 2012 model of the Machete at the beginning of this season. I must say it is one of my favorite boards I have ever ridden. The LowRize shape gives the board a surfy ride, while still maintaining enough edge contact to carve without washing out. I am amazed at how well it performs in powder. the slime walls and carbon pop rods are also nice touches. The flex is perfect for me, not too stiff, but not too noodly either. All in all I think this is a true all mountain board that will perform in all conditions.

        Comments about Ride Snowboards Machete:

        I researched boards for a few months and after riding snow boards for three years, I felt I was ready for an advance board. I decided to buy this board and I'm so glad I did. I went from a Ride Antic, which is a little softer, has a higher rocker, and has less pop to this board. I couldn't believe the difference between these boards. I went straight to the top of Cannon Mountain on a really great day with some of the best packed powder of the season. From the first turn, I knew I could trust this board and it's edges. I went down certain parts of runs I love that I ussually go through at slower speeds and more cautious. With this board I just dropped in and kept a great speed while carving with ease. I was passing people like they were standing still, loving it, and I felt so confident on this board. Buy it, if you are looking to hold hard carves, pop off jumps bigger, and want one heck of a great ride down your favorite mountain.

          I used this board once and am kicking myself for not looking at this in the past, great at high speeds, no chatter, decent edgehold. If this is a good board in the northeast its a good board anywhere!! never getting away from the machette line

            I got this board last year and rode it all winter. I used on some of Squaw Valley's steepest terrain as well as the parks at Mammoth. The board performed extremely well, and I couldn't have asked for better.

              Amazing board, but its stiffer than its "6'" rating.
              Dont scale down in size, the ride sizing is bang on.
