RIDE MACHETE GT 2019 SNOWBOARD
A staff favorite, the famous Ride Machete GT is a true weapon, if you are ready to step off that wishy washy reverse camber board and want something that is poppy, super stable and rewards you when you blast through that turn yet is still forgiving then the Machete GT is for you. You can expect true power when carving those edges and some hectic pop that will send you to the heavens. It isn't a stranger to powder either so you know you can show off wherever you want to go. A real masterclass in its art, the Ride Machete GT is one solid board you need in your collection.
Profile: Twin Hybrid Rocker
Specialty: Park, All Mountain
Extra thick steel edges to take the brunt.
Blending of three radii to improve turn initiation/exit while providing the best grip possible. This design is uniquely formulated for each model based on its shape and riding style.
High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.
This totally unique sidewall combines layers of Slimewalls® material and carbon strategically placed at the inserts out to the contact points in the tip and tail on a twin, and the back inserts to the contact points in the tail on a directional board. This exclusive tech enhances the charging rider’s experience as we have moved the carbon pop construction to the outside edge for better stability and enhanced response.
RIDE’s exclusive Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the urethane in Slimewalls® smoothes the interaction with the snow, wood or metal surfaces you may ride on. On top of all that, these babies are virtually indestructible, the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding.
Unique 3D structure built around our urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
DOUBLE IMPACT PLATES LAMINATES:
Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most
Triaxial on top, biaxial on base; balanced torsional flex and stiffness for better response with speed.
CARBON ARRAY 5 LAMINATES:
This power distribution technology provides total board control in every stance location. Widespread carbon stringers placed at the binding zone gather input from any stance width and all pressure angles. Rider input is then channeled to the opposing contact point for maximum board control.
