The Ride Machete is one of the most sold boards in the ride lineup. It is suited for a wide variety of terrain and riders thanks to its twin rocker profile and soft to medium flex. You can lap the park, carve down groomers or set a line through the trees, this board will help you get down everywhere.
The beginner to advanced rider that likes a forgiving ride to shred it all.
The perfectly symmetrical Twin shape offers a balanced ride that’s equally versatile when ridden regular or switch.
Twin Rocker - A flat camber profile between the feet means stability, better balance, and continuous edge control. The tip and tail kick up with an early rise outside the feet for the catch-free, loose feeling you’d expect from rocker.
The soft-medium flex allows for easy turning and ensures a comfortable ride through every terrain, whether it is park, powder or anything in between.
RIDE’s 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 tail, this technology adds pop without the stiffness generally associated with snappy boards. The Carbon 3 Array laminates are widespread carbon stringers placed at the binding zone to gather input from any stance width and all pressure angles. Rider input is then channelled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control. The sintered base is an industry standard for quality base materials. Provides a balance between the speed created by a hard surface and good wax retention. Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. On top of all that, these babies are virtually indestructible, the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding. The Impact Plates are added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most. The Cleave Edge™ Steel features nearly 50 % more steel and delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii. Biaxial Glass features a jib-friendly, torsionally soft flex, and forgiving feel.
