Product Info

The magicians at Lib Tech have done it again by bringing you the Lib Tech Banana Magic Enhanced BTX HP Snowboard, a board without limits. Featuring Horsepower Construction, the Banana Magic has no traditional fiberglass and instead uses completely Volcanic Organic basalt fibers resulting in a lightweight ride with incredible power and snap. Topped off with Magne-Traction edges that turn ice into powder and the incredibly lightweight and durable Bio Beans sparkle topsheet, the Banana Magic is a force to be reckoned with. With incredible edge grip on ice, unbelievable float in powder, and effortless jibbing and damp quiet stability at high speed, this board is truly magic.

Rocker Type

BTX: Enhanced BananaA magical blend of Lib Tech's Banana Tech rocker between your feet and an optimally formulated amount of camber right at the contact points.

    Comments about Lib Tech Banana Magic Enhanced BTX HP Snowboard 2014:

    I haven't found any other all mountain boards that can actually do everything really well! Whether it's riding pipe, a jump line, buttering, powder, or just pointing it down a groomie, it truly does it all. Every time I'm on a different board, I wish I was riding my magic! I'm finally replacing my 2011 model with a new shiny 2014 only after racking up 300+ days on it.

    Comments about Lib Tech Banana Magic Enhanced BTX HP Snowboard 2014:

    I've been riding since 1996, 38 yrs old advanced rider. Strong carving (NASTAR national Finals runner up, regs and switch. 5050 into boardslide almost any rail/box and am a method/stalefish and 360 park jumps as background. 5ft5in and 135lbs.

    Demo'd a 2014 in a 157cm and found it felt lighter than my AB and my T.rice with same NOWs on them all. Couldn't believe how nimble it was while still handling end of day chop at 9-degrees in mid west snowment. Butters and presses with a nice sweet spot but can handle 40mph 35degree slope with anything I've riden. All I have to say is; don't get if all you care about is disastering onto a down flat down kinked handrail.....that's not this board. This is going to be a board for a couple season experienced rider that knows how to proper link turns and rides switch often. Ice, pow, jumps (10ft - 35ft gaps is all we had) and boxes are all really really fun as well. Just hit a cruiser lap through park; but; make the rest of blues and blacks your park and you'll see what I mean. Carving and a playful approach too it is this boards forte.

    I'm getting a 152cm to match my height and weight better. The 157 somehow just felt like it rode as small as my 153 T.rice pro and 154.5 RC
