Like its threatening name implies, the Ride Machete Wide Snowboard mutilates everything from intimidating jump lines to hidden tree stashes with its versatile twin shape and go-anywhere medium flex. And although it excels at sending kickers and jibbing, it's never afraid to leave the park's boundaries for some high-speed resort laps or even fresh powder on those cold, stormy days. This particular version is wider, giving those with bigger feet a solid riding platform without worrying about toe drag holding you back.
Predictable at higher speeds, the Twin Rocker profile is predominately flat along the board's effective edge, rising early with a subtle dose of rocker to loosen up the tip and tail. Flat profiles are great at keeping the board stable at higher speeds and controlled on edge, but without the catchy sensation of a fully cambered deck. Subtle rocker along the tips makes it more playful while providing extra float. Ultimately, this hybrid profile maximizes the Machete's versatility, allowing you to conquer anything on the mountain with a freestyle-focused approach.
Equipped with a Pop Rods 1.0 core, the Machete gives you loaded pop and smooth-riding characteristics, but without the fun-sapping stiffness usually associated with high-end boards. The Machete achieves this through incorporating a urethane-wrapped slime core that's ultra-damp with snappy carbons stringers radiating from the insert packs to the tips. To maximize playfulness, Ride designed the Machete with torsionally forgiving biax fiberglass. As a bonus for park riders, Roll In Slimewalls dampen impact and resist blowouts when you're jibbing and stomping landings.
