I would go with Deltas, NRCs, Alphas, Contrabands, or Nitranes, Rome 390s/Targas, or K2 formulas

You can't go wrong pairing the machete with one of ride's higher end bindings. I'm using forces on my machete and its like riding on a cloud.

For a little comparison I'm 5'10, 205 lbs and ride a 155 machete. If you don't like the violet on the 157W, you could opt for the 158. A 1cm difference won't be noticeable and if you ride with a ducked stance, you should be able to fit your size 12's on there. The waist width of the 158 is 24.9. Keep in mind that these decks have a pretty aggressive sidecut, meaning that this measurement taken at the center is the skinniest width. The deck gets quite a bit wider where your bindings will mount.

Hope this helped

What about the Ride Machete 158 and the Ride RX bindings. Could it fit well?
