Best Board I ever Had
I got this board for christmas and its incredible. The camber technology really allows you to do things you cannot usually do on normal snowboards. It can spin on a dime, and this board does well with my aggressive carving. This board is fast! (might be because it is brand new but i ride much faster than i ever had before) this board is stiff and it is so responsive. I thought jibbing is better on felxy boards, but i was wrong. I have had the best rail sessions with this board so far. Jumps are this board's strong point. It can spin so well! BTW, this board is rediculuouly light. I was afraid of the graphics being too flashy but it ended up looking like I have a neon underglow when I ride. Sick all mountain board. Definately recommend

Awesome
The Ride Machete snowboard & the Ride Rodeo bindings are both great! I bought the setup for my son and he loves it! The response of the board, the fitment of the bindings, he couldn't be happier. Plus the Grenade watch as a free gift is just cool. Very pleased with the entire purchase!

Perfectly balanced
Perfect flex compare to my Capita and Lib Tech. This is a rad board and super stable when you are bombing. Great for west coast snow and terrain. The rocker shape is nice because There is no edge catch. Truly a great riding board at a really good price compared to others.

pure badassery. Good pop, super fun park board and can handle the back country terrain.. I dig this board, only negative feedback its not as responsive/edgy as my DH dfc but in exchange offers better pop and less edge catch on the jibing.

Machete Snowboard
Have loved all my Ride boards since day 1, and this just kicks it up a notch, great board for park, and every inch of the mountain and durable as heck! The board looks super sick and I would reccomend Ride and this board to any!! Only downside I have found is it is heavy, but nothing to stop you from loving!!

Simply Amazing!
I can't begin to describe how much I love this board. I should have upgraded years ago and at this price, it should have been a no-brainer. I used to use an old Morrow board - and by old, I mean 1990's. Transitioning to the Machete was a night and day difference. I had never felt comfortable riding toeside on my old board and this board practically forces you into it. It's incredibly naturally feeling and easy to guide. The moment I took it off a jump, I seriously yelled out "Holy ****" because I couldn't believe how much air I got from a simple liftoff. It would have taken all my strength and more to get my old board that high. This board is a dream come true and I can't wait to take it out again.

Perfect board for all mountain
I bought this board for all mountain and ended up being pretty good in the park. The pop rods in the board make it amazing for jumps because the pop is great. Little stiff but is definitely a solid board its a bang for its buck.

All Around Ripper
This is my new favorite board. Ive been riding a DC PLY mostly for the last few years. Thats a 5 star board too but this one is just a little more well rounded for freestyle riding. They are about the same weight but I feel the Ride is easier to control on boxes and off jumps. It rides park to powder without missing a beat. Its stiff enough to launch booters and its shape makes it great for jibs and floating powder. I havent had it too long but I feel it holds wax better than my PLY. The one thing though is that at high speeds with light cover, it can get a little squirly. If you're bombing hills alot, maybe go with the GT model since thats got micro camber rather than the flat to rocker on this one

Awesome, but watch the finish...
I have the 149 and am 5' 3" and I love it; pretty significant size change from my previous board. The board's profile is awesome and it's a major upgrade from my previous board. I love how versatile it is and it took me to the next level. On top of that, the design is cool as hell.

My only complaint is the durability of the surface of the board around the edges. Board's get scratched and knicks happen all the time, it just seems like this particular one's finish makes it prone to that. I have been riding it on average 5-3 times a month this season and it looks like my old board did after 4 seasons. I don't take it in the park and I am very mindful of other people knocking in the back of it, however, even the slightest bump results in a nice size gash on the edge; causing peeling and deeper chips. I love this board, but because of this I am not sure it is going to last long.

I am still giving it 4 stars, but I will likely see if RIDE or the-house.com is able to help me out at all with this. My friend bought another RIDE board at the same time as me, and her's is in much better shape and she abuses the hell out of her board and rides just as often.

maybe I just don't like Rocker profile boards
I'm not a GREAT snowboarder, but i can definitely handle myself on the mountain. I originally bought an LSB setup from a buddy for $50 (boots binding and board). i rode that board for probably 7 years or so, but figured I was missing out, and bought a burton board off of craigslist. i later found out that that burton board was a 10 year old mode. anyway, I rode both of those boards with no issue, riding switch proficiently, jumps and able to enjoy myself. I AM NOT AN EXPERT, but again, I can enjoy myself on the mountain. The Ride Machete was the first new board that I had bought, and the first Rocker profile board that I had bought. I rode the Machete the few times that i had the opportunity to ride last season (1 being a 4 night trip to snowbird in utah) and felt like I was new to snowboarding the whole time. it felt like my back foot wanted to kick behind me the whole time, and felt like i had to overcompensate the entire time. I rode the board for that season. this upcoming season, i will give the machete another shot, but i will be bringing one of my old boards to make sure that maybe i just lost it alltogether.

anyway, if it doesn't get any better, and i can ride like i remember on the camber boards, the rocker might be up for sale on craigslist and i'll be looking for a new camber board in 2015.

will this board be ok for a beginner or will it be a bad choice?
Richard on Feb 3, 2014
Best Answer: This board is for intermediate to expert riders. Of course, it could easily suit a beginner, too. However, the technology of the board probably won't be noticed by a beginner, as opposed to expert riders, who look for minute details/preferences in their boards.

At 5'7"and 160lbs, what is the best size board? I've started riding more park but mostly still ride all mountain. More east coast than west coast.
Rich gmail on Oct 23, 2014
Best Answer: The Ride Machete Snowboard is a progressive all mountain freestyle board that can be ridden coast to coast. As far as sizing, you can really chose that based on what kind of conditions you are truly riding in. For example, if you are riding hand rails all day you may prefer the shorter board with a quicker swing weight. If you are riding in steeper and deeper snow out west you may prefer a bit more surface area. My advice is the 155 based on your height and weight.

I am 6'1" and 220. Should I go with the 158 or 160? I currently ride a 157 DC Focus.
A shopper on Jan 4, 2015
Best Answer: I'm 5'10" 160 and I ride this board in a 158 and I feel like it's a little too long for me. If the 157 feels comfortable for you on the other board then I would say a 158 should be just fine for you. But I think you'd like either length board. This is only my second season snowboarding so I learned and am still learning on it. It's really fast and has great stability at high speeds. Not really a park board but I pull off some tricks.I think your extra weight will benefit you on this board because it's a little stiff but it's a great all mountain board! Not to mention the graphics are siiiiiick!

Im a park kind of guy and like to hit trials once inna while, anyone think of a better board for the price?

Best Answer: I bought this board as kind of the reverse, something that I can ride on the trails and hit the park if I'm feeling the itch. My other board is a Forum Manual and I found that it was just entirely too flexible and unstable at speed to do the trails well. This board is great for everything!

Is this board good for riding freestyle while also riding powder?
chaseChase m on Oct 19, 2013
Best Answer: Yeah. A little bit slower than a flat or normal camber board, but a lot of reverse camber boards are really terrible in the powder, so the machete is a great compromise. I love it for freestyle because it has great flex and the swing weight on the ends are light. Fun and pliable, but still rather sturdy, It does what it advertises; good powder, great freestyle.

Best Answer: It appeared that it had some shop wax on it, but because of the sticker on the bottom I just melted it down and and rewaxed it. The edges were not detuned, did that myself also, but that's a preference thing so wouldn't expect them to do that on the stock board.

I'm looking to purchase this board as an all mountain/freestyle board. I wanna hit the trails but also be able to get it in via the park. I'm 6'2 205lbs. I was thinking about going with the 158cm but I feel that this board might be a bit to small. Any advice? I wear 11.5 boots and was planning on throwing some large burton freestyle re:flex bindings.
A shopper on Dec 31, 2014
Best Answer: The Ride Machete Snowboard is a great deck and would be pretty good for the riding you want to do, but the 24.9 waist width of the 158cm length won't be great in the toe/heel drag department. Most riders with size 11+ boots ride boards with a minimum waist width of 25.8cm.

One board that really stands out for you is, which is also in the Ride line, is the Ride DH2 Wide Snowboard. The DH2 has a waist width of 26.1cm (157cm) and 26.3 (161cm), which would be great for ripping groomers. There is one thing to note about the DH2 - it's going to be more stable, have an immense amount of pop, and will be lightening fast edge to edge.

For $42 more you get a waist width that accommodates your foot size, and the following upgrades:
Popwalls
Membrain Topsheet
Carbon Array 5
Hybrid Glass (Biax & Triax)

You'll love the Ride DH2 Wide. Check it out HERE: http://www.the-house.com/9857rddh2w13zz-ride-snowboards.html

Will the 152 board work with the size 10 burton custom bindings without toe and heel drag? I wear a size ten boot.
joe r on Dec 18, 2014
Best Answer: Joe,
What size boots are we talking about? Generally I suggest that riders with size 11+ boots ride boards that have a waist width of 25.8cm or wider UNLESS the boots have Shrinkage Reduction Technology. If your feet are over 11, then look at a Wide board, as this will be too narrow.
