Lib Tech is Proud to Announce the All New 16/17 Travis Rice Climax Snowboard

Travis is always looking for the outer edge of possibility whether it be exploring far reaching terrain, tricks or cinematic achievements. This same passion for progression extends to the design of his Lib Tech snowboard line, the all new super light super strong T-Rice Climax being the latest milestone in this storied lineage. Simply put, the Climax is the lightest, strongest most tricked out stick Lib has ever made.

It started out with Travis’ desire to use carbon fiber in a board, mainly for it’s unparalleled strength to weight ratio. But Lib Tech founder /kraftsman / ripper and mad scientist Mike Olson had somewhat of a of a challenge in using heavy doses of carbon fiber finding it nervous and brittle resulting in an unstable or overly chattery experience.

But Mike being Mike was intrigued with the challenge, how to make a carbon fiber snowboard that isn’t just light and strong but also rides like a dream? So Mike took to tinkering and eventually, after years, EUREKA!, he found a solution.

By mixing ribs of recycled PET foam in the core which are butted up against the spread tow carbon you achieve a supreme balance of weight and strength while maintaining the dampness necessary for stability at high speeds and big jumps. Now with the carbon problem in hand Mike, Travis and the experiMENTAL design team were free to dig in and make the T-Rice Climax even better. Polonia core, with strategic balsa wood, making light, lighter. Even thinner tips and tails for Travis’ never ending chase of reducing swing weight.

The aforementioned recycled PET foam is literally old plastic bottles remade into foam coupled with the clear recycled beans top sheet helping to prove that technology can be environmentally nicer and keeping with Mervin Manufacturing’s zero hazardous waste policy. Why feed the landfills when you can take from them? What came out in the end was a truly stunning snowboard, an effervescent rainbow laced with carbon shines through the recycled bean top sheet, a progressive attack shape for all conditions, an almost impossibly light carriage that, thanks to a long tradition of great American tinkerers, hauls ass over the tops of moguls, blasts airs with ease and leaves skiers in it’s dust.

Technology

Travis Rice Climax Construction
  • James

    awesome. looks cool. any more detail on carbon 0/30/90?
    what’s the 0, 30, and 90 represent?

  • Ryan

    It represents the weave angles of the carbon.

  • Trevor Schulze

    What makes this board worth the extra $250 when compared to the Goldmember?

  • James

    can you explain which pieces are carbon wrapped in carbon? Does it mean you have carbon stringers under the carbon fiber sheet. If so, what pattern are the stringers laid down in.
    Since there’s so much carbon on this deck, would you recommend a stiff, medium, or flexible binding?

    Hi, what is the exact weght of 155 climax board?

  • James

    Don’t have the exact weight. But the Climax 159 is approximately 1.5 pounds lighter than my 2008 Libtech Travis Rice 153. pretty awesome that the longer 159 Climax is lighter than my old 153 from 2008. the 159 Climax definitely has much less spin weight.

  • Alex

    I don’t know about your first few questions, but I think a much stiffer binding would be better paired with this board so you have more control.

  • Johan

    Does this have more pop then the normal t.rice pro hp ?

  • Meatus Upkill

    What angle are the edges sharpened at from the factory?

  • Hi there,
    Thanks for reaching out and expressing interest in our boards! We tune our edges to a zero degree base and a zero degree edge. Allowing our customers to tune their edges however they please! Here is a link to our edge tuning tool if you’re looking for the proper tool.

    Thabks for the quick reply. I have the dakine 0/2 degree tool, should be fine, right?
    Also which wax do you recommend?

  • yes, that tool will work.
    Our slippery racing wax works well for all temps!

It rides awesome. However, after about ten days, I’ve got some major delamination happening on one side. Not sure how it happened, was just doing usual riding. Is this a warranty thing? Or should I just epoxy it and call it good? It’s only on the top layer… but it’s happening in two places already

    Thanks. I’m not really that stoked about going through a complicated lengthy warranty process, nor do I really care about the cosmetics of the board but rather that it performs. Do you think you could reach out to your techs to see if this is a common thing? Should I just epoxy it and be done with it? Or from the pictures do you think there is something actually defective with the board. I’m hitting the slopes again on Saturday.
