Lib Tech Skate Banana Snowboard - Men's: Ride a banana! Slippery freestyle fun! Lib Tech's Banana Technology reverses a boards "pressure map" shifting your feet towards the center of the board where you have more balance control. Some weight is still transferred to the tips and tails and full contact is maintained for control and stability but far less than is the case with tip-to- tail ski camber where the tips and tails are the focus of all weight distribution, making a board catchy and difficult to ride. The Banana snowboard specific pressure map makes turns easy to initiate, is catch-free and forgiving, floats incredible in powder, and is unreal for jibbing and poppy freestyle fun.
Banana Technologies and Magne-Traction (BTX)
H-Pop core with banana specific core profile.
Power transfer internal sidewalls.
Flex: 4-6 (depending on size)
ASSORTED COLORS! COLOR CAN NOT BE GUARANTEED!
The time for multi-colored all-mountain freestyle fun has come. Some believe the Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard in Assorted Colors was foretold by ancient cave drawings scrawled by primitive shredders many eons ago, some believe the colorful Skate Banana was planted by aliens and just now discovered, and some believe cosmic mutant apes brought the Banana from the future. One thing is for certain: the Banana is high in BTX technology and shredtassium so you can get loose but have your pop too.
Award winning, rips everything, easy to ride, easy to turn, catch-free and forgiving, floats incredibly in powder, is unreal for jibbing, poppy freestyle fun, handcrafted in the USA, for first timers to pros. Banana Tech snowboards specific geometries reverse a snowboard’s “pressure map”, shifting your weight from your feet inward to the center of your board where balance is controlled. Some weight is still transferred to the tips and tails and full contact is maintained for control and stability but far less than is the case with tip-to-tail ski style camber where the tips and tails are the focus of all weight distribution, making a board catchy and difficult to ride.

I bought this board after my Ride Machete cracked on me. I live on the East Coast in NJ so most of what I ride is ice but we do get our fair share of chest deep powder. I also ordered from the assorted colors and received an orange/black.
Magnetraction cuts right into the ice like its not even there. Muuuuch better than any boards I have ridden including the machete.
It seems to have slightly less immediate pop than my machete but the pop is much more controlled. I was able to hop onto rails and hit the larger jumps no problem.
Awesome just awesome. The banana just floats.
Its my favorite all around board to date and I am a die hard Mervin Industries believer now!
Really this is a great board. I have had it for three seasons now and have taken it up about 80 times and I don't have anything bad to say. Its an all around good board and I don't think I could go without the Magnetraction and the rocker. It works great and its made in the US and my home state of Washington.
