Product Info

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 Wide Snowboard and see what all the buzz is about! Note: This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.

Product Details

Rocker Type

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

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)5

Sidecut

True TwinA symmetrical shape for equally precise performance riding regular or switch.

Core

H-PopWood 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.

Sidewalls

Double Sintered UHMW SidewallsTwice as sintered as any other sidewall: tough, handsome, and light

Power Transfer Internal SidewallsThe 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.

Base

TNTFast and low maintenance dual layered fluoro base material: Wax it or maybe skip a day.

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.

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

    I'm 6' , 170lbs size 12 boot, I got a 156 Wide and fits me well for general shredding and playful riding. Due to unfortunate circumstances of being tied to a location for a couple seasons with the only hill of being a midwestern dumb, it livens the riding up. Love the board, its my first deck with Magne Traction. I'm used to riding NS and YES, but now I will never ride another board without Magne Traction. Blew my socks right off first run. Holds an edge like no other, am I cheating? No difference in pow but who needs edges in it anyways. I prolly should have went with a 159 for more flex and pop as I ride with my stance maxed out but it remains super responsive and a fargin' joy to ride. Supper stable underfoot allmountain and in the park. Locks on to rails and presses like a boss.

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

        Out of my 3 boards this is the most playful and easiest to ride. If your gonna ride in the park or go freestyle this is the board. If you you want to dabble in freestyle and ride the mountain this is the board. In all actuality I have zero complaints about this board.
