Review

The Ride Machete GT is an all mountain freestyle board that won the 2015 Transworld Snowboarding Good Wood Award because of its nice equilibrium of power and playfulness. This board is quickly becoming a true classic choice for all mountain and park oriented snowboarders. Ride fitted the Machete GT with a special bamboo and paulownia core which makes this board it light, strong and ready to fly. With nearly 50% more steel this board delivers unmatched resistance to cracking edges. Its medium flex and centered stance will make riding switch and park tricks feel more naturally. The Ride Machete GT is aimed at the more experience riders who prefer a semi-aggressive and semi-technical all mountain freestyle board.
