Product Info

Oh the Skate Banana, the one that changed it all. The Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard was one of the first rockered snowboards. This game changer is still killing it today. With rocker between your feet and flat sections to the contact points, the Skate Banana is surfy, fun and floaty. The addition of Magne-Traction give this deck superior edge hold even on the iciest of slopes. So whether you are shredding park or pow, the Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard is a classic snowboard that will keep you stoked. *This is a factory blem board that may have slight cosmetic damage.*

Product Details

Rocker Type

BTXBanana Technology is a all-terrain freestyle banana smoothie. Rocker is placed between your feet meeting flat and mild camber at the contact points. This creates mild tip pressure for an unreal float in deep snow and easy-presses. The solid pressure between your feet is great for turning and strong edge hold.

Flex

Flex: 4.5-6.5 (depending on size)A versatile, medium-stiff flex designed to be aggressive yet playful, and great for all-mountain riding.

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

Colombian Gold / Power A CoreFast growing farmed wood from south of the border // Light, strong and lively fibers.

Laminates

Tri-ax45° 45° 90° Fiber foundation torsion enhancing pop amplifier

Bi-ax0° and 90° Fiber foundation flexible pop magnifier

Sidewalls

Power Transfer Internal SidewallsThe PTIS are lightweight internal sidewalls made from Birchwood to add durability where you need it the most.

UHMW External SidewallsUltra High Molecular Weight exterior sidewalls made from soy-based elastomer are laminated to five internal wood layers for totally bombproof sidewalls.

Base

TNT BaseTempered Titanium speed base. Fast, low maintenance.

Die-Cut BaseBase color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.

Edges

Magne-Traction®Strategically located serrations on your edges that create confidence-building, fatigue-reducing, edge hold all over the mountain especially on hard pack and ice.

Topsheet

Co-Extruded Eco-Sublimation TopMervin's graphic manufacturing process uses a water-based process instead of toxic solvents or curtain coats. If a snowboard has a thick clear glossy on top it was really toxic to make. Mervin Manufacturing gives you an environmentally friendly alternative.

        My son hasn't used the board yet but is just replacing his old skate banana which is now too short. He loves the old one. New graphics are nice and the point I would make here is well worth the money for blemish. We can't tell what the blemish is on this board. Looks brand new.

          Im really happy with the board because it just fit my riding style. You see I'm from chile and here we have these Huge mountains with Awesome powder and my libtech is just perfect to ride in here. Also I love riding jumps and try new crazy things, and the flexibility of my board makes that possible.

            This board is awesome. I have 3 boards that ive been using for the last few years. I decided to buy this in hopes to find a board that i can use all around and this hit the mark! I have now sold my other boards and this is my one true love. Great for new enhland riding. Holds well on the Ice. Firm but flexible, all around awesome! Just cant beat american made!

              Comments about Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard - Blem 2015:

              This board is incredible. I haven't bought a new board in over 10 years & I'm glad I got this one. I'm 5'9" and got the 159. It's the biggest board I owned & it is one of the easiest boards to control. You can carve on a dime, the serrated edge helps on the flats & ice so you don't catch your edge. It's so flexible that you can just lift your toes up and down to switch edges, it's insane. The board is just slightly wider than my old B- custom & Soloman. I did not get the wide either. Overall, I'm am blown away by the technology used & the performance of this sweet shredder. Do it up
