The 2013/14 Ride Machete GT Snowboard key features:
Hybrid LowRize - This go anywhere twin shape features LowRize Rocker in the tip and tail and a level micro-camber zone between the feet.
Performance Tuned Core - High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and other lightweight woods to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.
Carbon Array 5 - This power distribution technology provides total board control in every stance location. Widespread carbon stringers at the binding zone gather input from any stance width and all pressure angles. Rider input is then transferred to the opposing contact point for maxed out board control. Two levels of technology are available from 3 to 5 carbon rays extending from contact point to the effective edge.
Membrain Topsheet - Weighing less than half of traditional plastic top sheets, Membrain maintains a smooth feel by infusing urethane into fabric. Along with pushing limits in the world of lightweight, this process also allows Ride to push the boundaries when it comes to graphics by utilizing the textures and aesthetics associated with a variety of fabrics.
Popwalls - 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. This exclusive tech enhances the charging rider's experience as Ride has moved the carbon pop construction to the outside edge for better stability and enhanced response.
Hybrid Glass - Triaxial on top, biaxial on base, balanced torsion and stiffness for better response with speed.
Cleave Edge - Nearly 50% more steel; the cleave edge provides an unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.
Thin Con - Featuring tapered tips and tails, enhanced tip flex, reduced swing weight and sidewalls that run past the effective edge, Ride’s Thin Construction sets riders up for easy spins and board handling.
Fusion 4000 Base - This sintered base is more durable and harder than extruded and is the fastest base material known.
