Best Snowboards 2013: Ride Machete GT

An aggressive all-mountain board

Ride’s original Machete earned a reputation as a board of choice for aggressive all-mountain riders. The new, extra powerful and responsive version of this directional twin-shaped stomper features a small amount of positive camber underfoot and rocker at the nose and tail. In the GT iteration of the Machete, Ride inserted carbon fiber into their signature urethane Slimewalls (similar material to skateboard wheels) to add pop and power. You’ll be hard-pressed to overmatch this board.

Length (cm): 151,154,157,160 (wide available)
