Product Info

You've heard of Travis Rice before, right? In case you haven't, he's kind of a big deal in the snowboarding world. Check out The Art of Flight, King of the Hill and Supernatural. This board is his brain child born on the steeps of his home mountain Jackson Hole, WY. It's designed to allow you to slip in and out of any situation imaginable with his favorite C2 Power Banana camber rocker profile and comes factory detuned to his specs. Excelling in all conditions, this board has a naturally thicker waist and comes in two shapes, the pow specific pointy 161.5 and 164.5 and the park/jib focused blunt 150,153 and 157. No matter where you are on the mountain, the Lib Tech T.Rice Pro C2BTX Snowboard crushes its competition. That's it, that's all. *Note: This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.*

    Comments about Lib Tech T.Rice C2BTX Snowboard - Blem 2014:

    T Rice never fails to deliver an amazing board. My boyfriend has been wanting this board for a couple of years now and I got it for him as a birthday present. He had an old tech nine board that he could ride down the mountain like nobody's business.

    With this T Rice LibTech, it's like a whole new experience for him. The magna-traction edges can carve through ice like scissors into a piece of paper and on pow days, it rides like a queen.
    He rides this board hard and it's still in amazing condition.
    We are nothing but pleased with this board.

    The delivery was extremely fast and delivered as promised.

        I was able to ride this bad boy for the first time up at Winter Park, CO. The board was everything I was hoping for and more. Very responsive, very fast, flex felt just right, and handled super nice over the hard packed snow. Worth every penny and honestly couldn't even tell it was a blem board.

          I purchased the blemished version of this board- the 'blemish' is a small dent in the topsheet and does not affect the quality or performance of this product whatsoever. A great board for bombing fast in pow, on groomers, and super stable when landing big jumps! No complaints!

            I love this board that is all there is to it. It is true when they say if it's good enough for Travis Rice then it's good enough for me. I am an intermediate rider and I love to carve. This has great edge hold with magne traction and great maneuverability. Probably the best board I have ever ridden. Kudos to the guys at Lib Tech for making a great product.

              Took this board out for its first run for 3 days @ Steamboat and had a blast all over the mountain. I was coming from a longer, full-camber board. I was very surprised at how playful this board was yet it was able to grab a great edge and able to charge pretty quickly. At higher speeds, on groomers, the board did start to get a little unstable, thats my ONLY complaint and its certainly one that I'm happy to live with. I bought this board on recommendation from a friend who has one as well and I'm glad I did. Great all-mountain board, easy to maneuver, easy to jump, easy to carve.

              As always, EVO was prompt with shipping and delivered as promised.

                i was very skeptical on buying a new blemish board , let me tell you this its so worth the money on the gamble the 30% off is soo sooo worth it my "blemish" is a little tiny dent in the wood at the tip of the board i couldnt even tell with evo marking it with a sticker , how i caught the dent was the reflection of the light i noticed a little indent but nothing that will effect the performance of the board or have the top sheet start to crack so its def good for the long term ...i got the board i wanted for an amazing price... i would def purchase another blem board in the future esp for a high end board like this one

                Service and delivery comments:

                delivery was on time but the box looked like it was opened because only 1 piece of tape was holding it together the plastic bag the board came in was opened on one end ..im just happy that my new factory blemish board didnt have any other blemishes on it from delivery....i dont so much blame evo as much as i would UPS in this case ...very very poor handling of an expensive product
