The Machete GT is a favorite of snowboard bloggers all over the internet. What is it about the Machete GT that snowboard bloggers love so much? This freestyle deck packs so much tech it's difficult for them to pick their favorite. RIDE's Twin Hybrid Rocker provides rocker in the nose and tail to lift your contact points off the groud for a catch-free ride in the park and effortless float to stick those powder landings. Camber between your feet helps you hold your edge and power through turns. The GT also features Carbon SlimeWalls, which provide a stable and chatter-free ride at high speed that has been compared to "riding a garden hose over a flat tire" in variable terrain. No vibration there! The carbon is strategically placed in the nose and tail to ensure you maintain edge-to-edge quickness and pop. The Machete GT is a responsive freestyle deck with a stiffer flex, so don't be an angry snowboarder if you don't have the chops to get the maximum performance from the Machete GT.

Cleave Edge™ Steel
Nearly 50% more steel, delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.
Triaxial on top, biaxial on base, balanced torsion and stiffness for better response with speed.
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.
Roll In Slimewalls®
Unique 3D fiberglass structure built around our urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
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 riders' experiences as we have moved the carbon pop construction to the outside edge for better stability and enhanced response.
Carbon Array™ 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. Offered in two levels of technology, 3 & 5.
Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strenth and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels - single and double.
Standard Top Sheet
Durable topsheet with graphics only RIDE can bring you.
