Ride Machete Men's Snowboard
The Machete offers all around performance, at home in any conditions this shape is tested and approved by snowboarders all over the world. The hybrid rocker camber profile provides camber between the bindings for snap and response with a slight rocker at the tip and tail to make it catch free in harder conditions, while providing float in softer snow. The twin shape makes it perfect for freestyle progression all over the mountain. This year we worked with snowboard legend and culture icon Trevor Andrew on the graphic. A Quadratic Sidecut improves turn initiation/exit and edge grip. Carbon Slimerods® 1.0 have carbon for pop and a slime-core to smooth out the landings. Carbon Array 3™ provides extra pop without adding stiffness. Slimewalls® provide a smoother ride and increase durability. The Machete is a mid-flexing twin suited for all levels of riders looking to stand out with an iconic graphic.
TWIN HYBRID ROCKER:
A true twin shape hybrid profile that has more rocker than camber.
High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.
RIDE’s Slimerods® give already fun and playful boards the added liveliness to set them apart from other boards. Using strategic placement in the boards tip and/or tail, this technology adds pop without the stiffness generally associated with snappy boards. Made up of flat carbon rods that wrap a urethane slime-core, Slimerods® have carbon for massive pop and a slime-core to smooth out the landing. Available in 2 levels: Slimerods® 1.0 & 2.0.
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.
IMPACT PLATES LAMINATES:
Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels, Single and Double.
CARBON ARRAY LAMINATES:
This power distribution technology provides total board control in every stance location. 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. Offered in two levels of technology, 3 & 5.
BIAXIAL GLASS FIBERGLASS:
90° and 0° angles, fun and forgiving.
Unique 3D structure built around our urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
