Machete, you would deem it crusty and block him based on principal alone. Luckily, snowboards like the Machete don’t go out of style as fast as slices of pop culture featuring unjustly murdered gorillas or bad sportscasters. Much like a video of a man getting tagged in the bags gets funnier upon repeated viewings, the Machete gets better this year thanks to the addition of Twin Hybrid Rocker. Rocker in the nose and tail lifts your contact points off the ground for a catch-free ride in the park and effortless float to stick those powder landings, while camber between your feet helps you hold your edge and power through turns. The Roll-In Construction design over each sidewall will put an end to chatter like a trigger-happy employee at the Cincinnati Zoo while Carbon Slimerods® 1.0 will have this board transitioning from edge-to-edge with such effortless pop it will have you thinking “boom goes the dynamite.” So hide yo kids, hide yo wife, the Machete is a mid-flexing twin that will perform all over the mountain but is most at home in freestyle situations.

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.
High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
RIDE's Carbon Slimerods® give already fun and playful boards the added liveliness to set them apart from other boards. Using strategic placement in the board's tip and/or tail, this technology adds pop without the stiffness generally associated with snappy boards. Made up of flat carbon rods that wrap around urethane slime-core, Carbon Slimerods® have carbon for massive pop and a slime-core to smooth out the landing. Available in two levels - 1.0 & 2.0.
High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.
Triaxial on top, biaxial on base, balanced torsion and stiffness for better response with speed.
CLEAVE EDGE™ STEEL
Nearly 50% more steel, delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.
STANDARD TOP SHEET
Durable topsheet with graphics only RIDE can bring you.
