After a long time of search I found on a local store the RIDE Machete 160cm 2009-2010. I want to ask if anyone knows if it will fit me because I am 80kg and 183cm. I need a longer, a smaller or it's ok? One more thing, is it similar with the 2010-2011 machete?
if my conversion is correct you are 6 feet tall and 175#..obviously diff riding styles can adjust the board size but i think that would work or maybe go a little shorter, but dont think you'd wanna go bigger. for example im 6 feet and 200# and i ride a ride kink 156 and actually also have a machete 157 and personally dont like anything much bigger. and if i remember correctly there was one small change b/t the 2010 and 2011 machete but dont think it makes the ride completely different or anything
I called them today and they told me that they have the same board but 158 cm. Now my only problem is the width because i wear 11.5 boots.
Go in with your boots and some bindings (if you don't want to bring bindings, they'd probably provide them). Ask them to set it up and see if it'll fit with your angles. I've got 11.5 boots as well (K2 Darkos) and I can fit on some regular style boards because of my angles (-15, 21 or -15, 15).
Best case scenario, they fit. Worst case is that you have to keep looking.
