Product Info

If you aren’t careful, the Lib Tech Banana Magic Enhanced BTX Wide Snowboard will cast a spell on you. With its enhanced Banana Tech and Magne-Traction™, this board is designed with edge grip on hard snow and stability at high speeds in mind. Unbelievable float in powder and effortless jibbing capability are some of the unexpected side benefits. Super environmentally-friendly construction to boot! Note: This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Enhanced Banana (!BTX!)High rocker between the feet blended with a secret numerical formula of camber to the contact points focuses maximum pressure between your feet for magical turns and edge hold on ice and a mild amount of pressure to the tip and tail for end-to-end stability and pop while maintaining incredible float and catch-free freestyle.

Flex

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)7

Shape

True TwinA true twin snowboard shape is ideal for riders who want to ride switch or play in the park. The nose and tail are identical and the flex is evenly distributed throughout the entirety of the board. True twins are perfectly symmetrical.

Core

Columbian Gold CoreExperimental new dead tree with the highest compression response ever used in a snowboard

Laminates

BasaltBasalt is produced in a clean, pure process consisting of high heat and absent of toxic additives. Not only is it safer for humans, it’s easier to recycle. Basalt fiber has strength properties much higher than fiberglass and better damping properties for a smooth ride.

Sidewalls

Glow-in-the-dark Sidewalls may look radioactive, but they're made from healthy soy-based elastomers

Edges

Magne-Traction™Serrated edges slice through the snow with 7 strategically located and sized bumps along each side of your sidecut giving you insane edge hold and precision control. The biggest bumps are at and between your feet where your balance is centered adding maximum control and power where you need it most. The bumps outside your feet are smaller and less aggressive providing tip and tail control but maintaining freestyle freedom.

Topsheet

Bio-Plastic BeansA bio-plastic top skin made from beans that features the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any top sheet in the industry

      Comments about Lib Tech Banana Magic Enhanced BTX Wide Snowboard - Blem 2013:

      Coming from a regular camber Rome 159 to this board at 158W, I was worried about losing the ability to grab a line. I've been pleasantly surprised at the somewhat dramatic increase in ease of turn initiation without at all compromising on the ability to carve thanks to the magne-traction. In fact, I feel like it cuts even better once you tell it to, especially on steeps.

      The combination of the elliptical rocker camber and mange-traction makes speed on steeps, and everywhere really, a lot more comfortable for me as I feel like the edge only exists when I want it to.

      Decent amount of flex permits riding decently undulating terrain comfortably, but it's not gonna be what you want if you're trying manual all over the mountain.

      I read other riders complain of instability in the flats, but I've yet to experience it. Either I'm not going as hard as they are, or the wide board added the rigidity needed to overcome the chatter.

      I'll be riding it for at least a few seasons for sure.
