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!!

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.

CHUCK NORRIS WOULD APPROVE
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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
