Ferocious freestyle weapon.
At the forefront of the all-terrain freestyle movement, the Ride Machete Wide Snowboard blurs the line between dedicated park board and playful all-terrain weapon. It offers a responsive, yet forgiving flex that effortlessly transitions from park laps to open bowls without skipping a beat, making the Machete is a great one-board solution to ripping everything on the mountain. This version's wide waist alleviates annoying toe drag for big-footed riders turning quickly between park hits and carving aggressively down the mountain.
Predominately flat through its running length, the Machete remains extremely stable, allowing you to point it down the mountain and straight-line bigger jumps without unnerving chatter at high speeds. LowRize Rocker at the tip and tail prevents you from catching an edge on boxes and rails, while also promoting extra lift when you're floating through deep powder. Ultimately, this flat-to-rocker profile blends the best of both catch-free forgiveness and high-speed stability, giving you a board that's equally confident spinning onto rails and railing turns down the mountain.
Inside this all-terrain freestyle board, the Pop Rods 1.0 core is comprised of a urethane Slime core with flat carbon rods for added snap and stability. The urethane Slime core smooths out the boards ride, absorbing high-speed chatter and excess vibration when you're busting through chop. Carbon Array 3 laminates radiate to the tip and tail contacts, amplifying rider input into masterful board control. Biax fiberglass keeps the board a bit looser torsionally, which is great for buttering and pressing through the park. Additionally, Ride uses thicker Cleave Edges that stand up to abuse in the park, as well as a Fusion 4000 sintered base for clearing bigger jumps and hauling down the mountain.
