  • Florian Redemund

    Which size should i take? I´m 5.11 and 170 ponds, boot size 11, preferred riding powder!
    Thanks!

  • Cameron BaSaing

    Sounds like you should ride the 157 if they had it in wide but you’d be better off on the 158W because of your size 11 boots. Also width will help with riding through pow.

  • If you have really compact boots, you may be able to squeak by with a standard width–but you’ll probably be most stoked on the 158W or 162W for powder riding.
    The 158W will feel more playful, maneuverable versatile for riding in any conditions, while the 162W will be gloriously floaty in deep snow and a bit more powerful and stable at speeds.

  • Patrick

    6-3 – 220lbs with size 13. Can I ride the 162W? I want an all mountain ripper that work in all conditions in PAC NW. Skunk sounds a like it steers a little slow. I like to keep up with anyone but also like something quick when I slow it down and jam some fun in. What board should I consider??

  • Lairi

    Which is the best size for women 5.65 and 132 pounds, boot size 8-9, all mountain?

  • Mark S

    I recently purchased a banana magic 152 as a park/go through tight trees/all mountain based on all i have heard about them. i have been riding a burton easy livin 155 the one with the alpine stealie on it. upon receiving the board, my stoke was a little choked when it appeared to have very little rocker from what I was expecting out of an enhanced !BTX!. To sit it flat and balance the middle, there is only about an 1/8th inch of clearance between the flat surface and the tip and tail of the board. Making it seem to be more of a flat board rather than an enhanced rocker. I went to my local board shop to try to find a board to compare it to, and while they did not have a banana magic they did have a standard BTX. Both in LIB tech and GNU. the standard BTX appeared to have more rocker than my !BTX!. The closest Mervin authorized dealer is 80miles away, making it rather difficult to make a warranty claim. If there is any further help or information you can give me to address this it would be much appreciated. This is my first LIB tech purchase and much of my decision was based upon board technology and the fact that you manufacture in America!!!!

    REGARDS!

    I’m 5 10 and 167lbs and were a size 10 boot. what would be a good board size and should a get a wide board or standard one? and what would be a good all mountain board?

  • Andrew

    5’7″ 145lbs boot 10.5. i live in europe and got a 150 T Rice pro, Now i need a powder board for heliboarding, can you please reccomend a good one, i dont really know what size or flex i need considering in the states i just did park. thanks

  • 152 will be great!

    Another option would be to check out Gnu Snowboards–built in the same factory, using a lot of the same technologies and materials. But Gnu offers an entire line of women-specific boards!

  • Yes! You shouldn’t have any trouble with the 162W!
    Another option would be the T-Rice Pro in 161.5W

  • Hi Mark,
    Our apologies for the delay–wintertime can be pretty busy at our headquarters and sometimes our response time is a lot slower than we would like. But we appreciate your support and we want you to be 100% stoked!

    Here is a link to our warranty page, if you haven’t located it already: http://www.mervin.com/support/warranty/

  • With size 10 boots you will not need a wide board–the 154 or 157 would both work beautifully for you.
    The 154 will feel a bit more maneuverable and freestyle-friendly, whereas the 157 will feel a bit more solid and powder-friendly.

  • Hi Andrew,
    The Banana magic 152 could be a really solid and floaty option!
    But you may want to consider something a more directional for powder, as it will be much easier to stay afloat!

    Check out the Gnu Space Out 153–Gnu boards are built in the same factory, by the same masterminds as Lib Tech using a lot of the same technologies and materials. I think the Space Out might be the ultimate powder board for your heli trip!

  • Calin Vama

    Guys, I’m a 5’6″ and 132lbs intermediate/advanced rider and I’ve been riding V rocker 154 for the past years and I feel happy and comfortable with that. I’m looking for an all mountain board that can do pretty much everything – groomers, backcountry, but mainly off-piste. Park would be the very last requirement. I want something playful and maybe just a bit aggressive. Would this be the board for me? And if so, 152 or 154? Thanks

  • shagga

    guys can u help me? i’m 6’4” and 187lbs boot 11.5. I live in italy and i’m an all mountain rider(here there aren’t lots of good parks) i love powder but also curving. i really dunno wich board is the best for me, i love the banana magic and the attack banana cuz i want to try a true twin. this site recommend me a skunk ape but as i said i want a true twin, so what is better attack banana or banana magic? ty and sorry if i made some mistake

  • Alexander Grundy

    Hi There I am a little under 6 foot and weigh around 130 pounds Im looking for a board that handles nicely for riding standard trails groomers ect. But can also handle jumps up to 40-50 foot and rails. It wouldn’t need to handle well in pow more than a foot as i live in Australia and there isn’t much good powder. I was looking at the skate banana but i heard that its not good for jumps and slips out on landings. Any tips or feedback appreciated, Thanks 🙂

  • Mike Hardaker

    one of my favorite snowboards of all time. And at first I actually avoided riding this board.. Find out why http://mtnweekly.com/reviews/snowboards/i-dont-want-to-ride-a-banana-just-try-the-2016-lib-tech-banana-magic-snowboard

  • Quan Wakafuji

    I would say more camber or a stiffer board or both will be best for jumps. A SB will be great on rails tho. So more speed and control is what u would get out of a !BTX! Or a c2/xc2/c3 board.

  • Quan Wakafuji

    I would say more camber or a stiffer board or both will be best for jumps. A Skate Banana will be great on rails tho and decent on smaller jumps. But u might not get enough speed or control for bigger jumps. So more speed and control is what u would get out of a !BTX! Or a c2/xc2/c3 board.

    You also have a unique situation with you being very tall and light weight. So smaller board would be for you, but you may have bigger feet. Smaller boards you might have too much boot overhang. Just something to think about since it may limit you options even more.

  • Quan Wakafuji

    Either board would work for you. 152 for more playfulness, 154 for a little more stability at high speeds. If you have boots bigger than size 10 you would want the 154 more for the board width.

  • Quan Wakafuji

    I saw the 2017 banana magic model. I would post on that link if it was up, but is it wrong what I am reading? The 2017 model is now C2 only? I do like that it’s FP now, but why is the !BTX! gone? Is the sidecut radius going to be deep still? And is the mag still very pronounced as the these older magics? Sad face!
