Mervin’s revolutionary Banana Tech reverses a snowboard’s “pressure map” by focusing your weight between your feet (resulting in better edge grip and carving) and reducing pressure at the tips and tails (making the board less catchy and easier to pivot). Get on the Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX (Grey / Black) Wide Snowboard and see what all the buzz is about!
Banana Technology (BTX) Rocker between your feet blended with flat-to-mild camber to contact points focuses pressure between your feet for easy turns, great edge hold on ice, and a mild amount of pressure to the tip and tail for unreal float and catch-free freestyle.
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) 5
True Twin A symmetrical shape for equally precise performance riding regular or switch.
H-Pop Wood Alloy Core is made from experimental new dead trees with the highest compression response ever used in a snowboard. It has half the glue weight and absorbs less resin weight. Another industry first for Lib Tech.
Double Sintered UHMW Sidewalls Twice as sintered as any other sidewall: tough, handsome, and light
Power Transfer Internal Sidewalls The same futuristic power 90º pop technology from Lib Tech's world record setting skateboards and power transfer spines, only this time Lib Tech has placed it along the sidewall of your board to add board control to our sandwich construction: stronger, more pop, and more control.
TNT Fast and low maintenance dual layered fluoro base material: Wax it or maybe skip a day.
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.

Comments about Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX (Grey/Black) Wide Snowboard 2013:
I have taken the Skate Banana up several times and it keeps proving to me how great it is. I have always ridden never summer snowboards and wasn't expecting a product that could as good or better than all the never summers I ridden.
