Bang for you Buck
Great all mountain board, very responsive even for a guy my size(225). It gets a lot of complement all over the mountain, Would recommend it to all my friends.

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

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!

Dual twin is sweet. A little stiffer for all mountain but still performs in the park

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.
October 9, 2013
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.

Board looks really nice!
I haven't went on the slopes yet going in a week but I've ordered the board with the green flow bindings and it looks badass! Tried the board on and it has nice pop can't wait to try it out on the mountain!

Ride Machete
I bought this board to help fill the quiver. I ended up riding the Machete almost exclusively, It does everything great save for really fast hard groomers.

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!!

Joseph D on Dec 26, 2014
Awesome reviews for an older board and it was exactly what I have been looking for. Excited about the "pop" for jumps and really hope that the board is exactly as great as I have read about in reviews.

Andres F on Dec 2, 2013
Was looking for a good all-mountain board, but something slightly more playful than my 2007 Ride DH. Fantastic price on this and had it in my size. Good reviews and word of mouth on this one. I plan to take this board all over the mountain. 15-20ft cliff hucks in the slackcountry, to booters in the park, to tooling around on groomers.

Tanis W on Nov 19, 2013
Got great reviews and love the design! I currently ride a Forum Manual and although I love the massive amount of pop I get from the board it leaves a bit to be desired as far as high speed stability. Reading the reviews for this board it seems you get the best of both worlds; great for park riding but also handles all mountain riding! I'm super stoked to try it out and will definitely post a review of it!

I A on Dec 30, 2014
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.
I want this board for park also would anyone recommend this board for me for a park and mountain?
Ryan A on Jan 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have this board and it is a great all mountain board. The flex and twin shape is great for the park and has enough rocker to float in powder. I would definitely reccomend this board.
I am 5'9, 170 lbs and shoes size 10. I like to ride on mountains. Do you think board size 158 cm would be right for me? Is there a wide version for this board? Thank you in advance!
fanglesstiger on Oct 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I don't know if there is a specific wide version of the board, but I can tell you that I'm over 200lbs with a size 11 shoe and I don't notice this board being too skinny at all.
I found this board online for 270 can you match that?
A shopper on Dec 10, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I also, as we'll, tambien, snagged this board on Black Friday for $256, and couldn't be happier with the look, but have yet to get bindings for it:( but it came with a free watch! Thanks the house your the shizznizz
Will you price match a competitors price?
christian c on Aug 7, 2013

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!
would this be good for an intermediate leveled person?
A shopper on Jan 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely, I had this board out in Colorado last week in Breckenridge and Vail after some good snow and loved everything about it, from riding pow through the trees to carving fast lines on the groomers, she's super fast and has lots of pop too!
I am 6'2" intermediate to advnaced rider that weighs 170-180 lbs, Will i be alright with a 158?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My son, who is 18 years old, 5'10' and weighs 165, said that it would be perfect for you. He said that his board is slightly big for him. He is also an intermediate to advanced rider. He loves the board.
im 5'8" 160, want to rip the park with little of rest of mountain, 149 or 152cm?
A shopper on Jan 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: go with the 152. I'm assuming this size is just for fun.? even for fun 149 is small for your size. 156-158 is your ride.
My son's boot size is a 9 at what size do you go from a regular to a wide board? As he is 13 and growing fast!
A shopper on Nov 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm by no means an expert but I would say that for now and for a few years he'll
He OK with getting this board in a regular width. He'll have more control over it and it will be more responsive. In a few years he'll likely want a new board anyhow and he can get a wide if he's ready.
Im 5'10" 170 and I was thinking of going with the 155cm because I am big into the park but I am afraid it might be too small for normal runs should I just go with the 158cm?
A shopper on Nov 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm 6' 3'' 140 lbs and all I do is ride park. I have the 155cm and it works great for me. I think it is a more of a opinion based style. I like my board smaller for rails and stuff because it makes it easier but I don't thing that those couple of cm are going to hurt your riding ability at all. overall great board though. no complaints
Im a park kind of guy and like to hit trials once inna while, anyone think of a better board for the price?
A shopper on Oct 14, 2014
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.
I'm 5'11 165. Intermediate rider. Should I go for the 155 or 158?? Appreciate any advice
A shopper on Dec 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm the exact same size and got 155 which is perfect for an all around board. You don't need anything longer unless you wanted to just ride straight down the mountain and wanted more stability.
Is this a good board for east coast snow? I board in mid atlantic region, I am almost 5'8'' and 140 lbs beginner to intermediate rider.
A shopper on Dec 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have no idea what east coast snow is like. We are in Colorado. My son is about your height and weight and it works well for him.
Im 5'9 135lbs and I got a 149cm is that perfect or a little too short?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Alittle short but if u riDE park will be good for jibbing i ride a 155 and I'm 6 foot but have long legs and I perfwr that it's mostly personal preference
hi my name is Juan, I'm 136lbs, 5"5 tall, would you say the 149 is a good size for me for all mountain riding or should I consider the 152 in stead?
A shopper on May 29, 2015

The 149cm and 152cm Ride Machete Snowboard's have an effective edge (board's contact on snow) difference of 1.2cm, which isn't much. You fit within both sizes weigh ranges, but I think you'd be better off on the 149cm size.

The Machete board has a lot more pop and stability than other boards that are similar. It's going to be a great board no matter which size you get.
Does this board come pre-waxed? Also, are the nose and tail de-tuned?
bjlasota on Jan 15, 2015
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.
Im worried this board will not be fun for presses on rails and boxes, should I not be?
Kalen D on Dec 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It's not the most flexible board. It's slightly more playful than my DH, but not a super buttery board in the end. If you want something that is for rails and presses, the Kink will be more fit for you. This is more all-mountain playful.
I have the 155cm board and size 9 boots. which size ride bindings would work best- medium that are sizes 5-9 or large that are sizes 8-12?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's always best to get a snug fitting boot/binding combo. I'd go with the size medium bindings on the Ride Machete Snowboard.
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:
Membrain Topsheet
Carbon Array 5
Hybrid Glass (Biax & Triax)

You'll love the Ride DH2 Wide. Check it out HERE:
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
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.
Question I have a size 12 foot would this board be kinda a tough fit?
A shopper on Nov 29, 2014
Others may disagree with me, but 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. Really this Ride Machete is too narrow.
what board size should i get? i weigh 120 with my gear on and im 5'8. i also ride all mountain and kickers.
A shopper on Oct 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: For a rider at 120lbs the 149 Ride Machete will be the best fit.
How much will the base colour vary?
A shopper on Jul 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hardly enough to tell the difference. I just walked back into the warehouse because I wanted to see for myself how much the bases would vary on the Ride Machete. They all look identical to the picture.
i m 178cm tall, what is the size of the board i should choose?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The board that fits you're weight best. How much do you weigh?
Will flow the five se bindings fit on this board?
Ryan A on Jan 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes all Flow bindings are 4x4 compatible and will work great with all Ride Snowboards
Will Union Force bindings, larges fit well on this board?
Mason L on Dec 30, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Hello Mason,

Yes Union Force Snowboard Bindings will most definitely fit well on the Ride Machete Snowboard. That's actually a really great board/binding combo! Good picks!
does this board have a small positive camber in it?
A shopper on Feb 14, 2014
