  • Taylor

    I am an advanced rider, I’m 6’2″, 160 lbs and 10.5 boot size, will the t rice 157 fit me? or should I look at the 159 skatebanana?

  • If you want an aggressive board, the 157 T-Rice will be awesome for you!
    But if you want something more playful, forgiving and soft you’ll be happier with the Skate Banana.

  • Степан Терещенко

    Hi,I am 21 years old and 8.5 foot, Weight 145-150 lbs and Height 5.3 or 5.4.I ride pow and forest, sometimes freeride. In my town there are only 153 of the size, tell whether it will be good for me?

  • jeffrey

    hi im 25 and i got a 13 boot ….but i want a small park board what should i ride i really want a 155 or less any feedback

  • Hi Jeffrey,
    For size 13 boots you will absolutely want a wide board-.
    Check out the Skate Banana or Gateway in 156W for a playful buttery feel.
    If you want something a bit more aggressive/solid, check out the Attack Banana 156W

  • Hello!
    I think 153 might feel pretty big for jibbing/freestyle riding–but if you’re spending the majority of your time off the beaten path riding in trees and deep snow the 153 could be a blast! I would use the size of the boards you’ve ridden in the past as a guide. 153 is definitely on the bigger end of the spectrum for what I would recommend to someone your size, but depending on the terrain you prefer and your riding style it could be a great option!

  • Степан Терещенко

    Thank you!
    Fixed – my Height 5.2 or 5.3, 153 size It is normal at my height?My friend wants to sell me Skate Banana 148N (Good Height for me?) I think that is too small for me.

  • jeffrey

    The thing is i ride a 156w ride kink now and i don’t like how big it is i want a board i can throw around and i ride really duck foot so all im wondering is if i get a reg width board will i be screwed? i tried my brothers 155 reg and i wasn’t hanging over too much. im just wondering is it about preference or will i just be screwed because im looking at this trice pro 155 and i just don’t want to spend the money if im going to be screwed….thank you for replying back this is the only place im getting advice on this

  • 148 would be a more versatile size for you, but if you planning on riding this board in deep snow, natural terrain and high speeds a 153 would be a good option.

  • Hey Jeffrey,
    I’d really advise against a standard width board for size 13 boots–you need a wide!
    Our boards are completely different than any of our competitors’ and riding a 156W in another brand and not being stoked on it doesn’t mean you won’t love one of ours! Check the boards out in person if you’re having doubts, but riding a standard width board, particularly in a smaller size will be a recipe for disaster with size 13 boots.

    Magne-Traction will make a huge difference in edge hold and carving; even with a wider board you’ll get unbeatable control out of a Lib! We also make our own cores at our factory from hand-selected wood from real trees, so it will feel a lot more light and lively than anything you’ve ever ridden. Our cores are pretty much Harry Potter wands built into a snowboard. Lastly we innovated Banana/mixed camber boards and quite frankly, we did it right. Other companies have tried to mimic it, but Banana boards are a Mervin original!

  • jeffrey

    thank you ,you really gave me some good advise on what to look for i am definitely going to get a lib tech just because you are one of the only people i reached out to and got back to me with some strong advice (and youre board are bad ass) im looking at other sizes now i don’t want to spend money on a board that’s not going to work for me thank you again

  • Víctor Blázquez

    Hi,Im 1,80 metres tall and weight 165lbs,i got a 10 boot, I was wondering which size of this board should i use…I hardly ever go to the park,i want a board to ride mostly freeride and occasionally pow.any feedback?

  • Tyler

    Hey guys, I’m 6’4″ and about 200 lbs – looking for a board that I can use in the park and a little in the back country. I’ve had a Burton 158 Custom for a few years and was planning on jumping up to something between 163-165. Because of my height, I definitely want something that I can set up with a wide stance. Any recommendations between the TR Pro and the TRS?

  • Zuxa

    Hi, I’m Spanish and I want to buy this table , but I fear the wrong size .
    Weight 200 pounds and measure 5 ‘and 11 ” my boot is 12 .
    My question is : 157W or 161.5 standard?
    Thanks guys.

  • 157W or 161.5W
    I think you will prefer the wide width to better accommodate size 12 boots.
    Go with the 157 for a more playful/versatile all-mountain ride and the 161.5 for a board that will excel at high speeds and natural terrain.

  • Мирослав Кетенлиев

    Hi guys,

    I wanted to ask this question: Is there a big difference in the park feel of 157W and 161,5W? Cause I’m riding pretty much everything and use one deck, but still I am not sure if the 157W will hold on the pow and 161,5W will be too big for park. I am 6’2 and 200 pounds with a 12 size boot (footprint reduction). It’ll be good if I hear an opinion 😉 :D.

    Thanks,
    MK

  • William

    Same problem, Libtech help us! 🙂

    Thanks,
    Will

  • The 157 will perform better in the park/freestyle settings and the 161.5 will perform better in deep snow and at high speeds–there will be a bit of a trade off with either size. I tend to the smaller can be more fun and versatile, particularly with the T-Rice because it’s a really solid board and can still hold its own in deep snow and natural terrain even in a smaller size. But if pow riding and speed are most important to you, go with the 161.5 instead!

    As for width, it’s a tough call for size 12, so you really should compare the waist widths of our boards to what you’ve ridden in the past.

  • mcs

    Does the T-Rice 157W really have a waist width of 268? That’s wider than the 161.5’s waist width so that seems odd, and most retailers list the 157W as a 265 waist width. Please let me know!

  • Federico Beretta

    Hey LibTech guys, what’s up!
    I need to ask you this: what are the differences between a TRS and a Travice Rice Pro? I mean, I’ve read the specs and all, it’s all clear, but what does it feel like riding them? Which one is best for what? I would think a more pronounced camber under your feet (TRS) would give you more pop? Is that it?
    I’m coming from an entry level board I’ve used for years and I wanna step my game up, but I really can’t decide which one will be best! HELP! 😀

    Thanks,
    F

  • Hello!
    I generally describe the T-Rice as being aggressively powerful and the the TRS has aggressively fun.
    The extended camber of the TRS, paired with basalt fiber gives the board a really snappy/poppy and nimble feel, with a lot of pressure underfoot. The board rides how I imagine a Ferrari drives.
    The T-Rice is kind of a beast. It has a wider width, which gives it a more tanky feel and it takes a bit more effort to get onto edge, but it can make it through any terrain with ease. The fiberglass weave on the T-Rice is a bi-ax and tri-ax blend, so it will feel more torsionally stiff than the TRS.

    Both boards are aggressive all-mountain freestyle sticks and extremely versatile, but common feedback I hear about the T-Rice is that people are surprised by how stiff it is. And people are surprised by how snappy and agile the TRS is. Honestly, both boards are KILLER and will change the way you ride, but they are really different. Go to your local shop–give the boards a flex and stand on them! You’ll absolutely be able to feel the differences and it will help you pick!

  • Good catch, those widths should be swapped!

  • Federico Beretta

    Hey, thanks for the help!
    It is really the kind of comparison I was looking for, it does clarify a lot the differences between the two.
    I think that, based on your description, the TRS would fit me better.
    Thanks a lot, I can’t wait till they get to the stores in my town (Milan, Italy)…. Shred season is about to start 😀

  • mcs

    maybe you guys should hire me 😉

  • Orrin Tyson

    Hey Lib guys I rode your skate banana (152) all last season and absolutely loved the magne-traction/rocker profile…. however I want a smaller more aggressive board (mainly all-mountain but park as well) but I can’t decide between the T. Rice Pro 150 and the TRS 148N. I’m 5’4″ 145 lbs. size 8 or 8.5 boot depending. Can you help me figure out which would be best? Thanks!!

  • Spencer “STR8 RIPN” Storck

    Honestly both would be great boards for what you are looking for. I’d say both will be a more aggressive ride than your old skate banana but the TRS will be slightly more aggressive than the TRice especially when it comes to fast carving going edge to edge. I feel like the smaller TRS would be better on rails when you decide to venture into the park. The TRice will be a little more stable with the extra width and length which would be better for bigger jumps if that’s more your thin when you are in the park. But like I said before you would really enjoy both decks and they will help you excel as a rider! Have a great season!

    Spencer

  • Hi Orrin,
    I wouldn’t recommend the narrow TRS–the waist width is just 23.7cm, which will result in toe drag for size 8 or 8.5 boots.
    But the 150 T-Rice or 151n TRS would both be great options for you with a more accomodating 24.7cm waist width. The T-Rice has more of a tanky all-mountain feel because of its bi-ax and tri-ax fiberglass blend; it has a lot of torsional stiffness! And the TRS has more of a snappy and lively feel because of the XC2 base contour (extended camber) and basalt fibers.

    Both boards are solid and you’ll get a lot more power out of them than your Skate Banana! But they both feel different.
    Go to your local shop and give them a flex and stand on them—you’ll get a much better idea of how they’ll both perform.

  • PS: Thanks for choosing Lib, we appreciate the support!

  • Daniel Edwards

    Hey guys, I’m an intermediate rider really looking to push myself this year, start learning some tricks, hit rails and some powder. Definitely want an all mountain board. I was thinking the t rice pro or the skate banana. Will the T Rice be a bit to advanced/ aggressive for me? I want something with a bit a bit of flex maybe the skate banana will be a bit more forgiving but not so good in powder or carving?
    Cheers

  • Hi Daniel,
    The T-Rice is certainly a more aggressive board and the Skate Banana is on the opposite side of the spectrum and is more playful/forgiving.
    You might find that because the T-Rice has more camber underfoot that it won’t float through powder quite as well as the Skate Banana, but it will feel a lot more solid at high speeds and have a more aggressive feel. The Skate Banana offers a looser ride and might feel a little spooky on difficult terrain or high speeds.

    I think you should check out the Attack Banana or the Gnu Metal Gnuru or Space Case–all of these boards have a subtle, ellipitcal camber underfoot, which will add some power and stability. But they’re still fun and forgiving!

  • Daniel Edwards

    ok thanks for your advice, something to think about, will the attack banana handle powder well? after reading some reviews etc I’m leaning towards that one..

  • Yes it will handle powder with ease!
    It’s kind of a blend of the T-Rice’s C2 base contour and the Skate Banana BTX base contour, so you’ll get the power and stability of having some camber underfoot without losing the float and forgiveness of Banana.

  • Daniel Edwards

    OK cool, thanks a lot for your advice!

  • Trevor Onion

    Hey guys, I’ve been away from the scence for about 10 years, used to ride a J.L. Phoenix back in Europe. I’m 5’8′ and about 80kg with a size 9 boot. Would a T.R. pro C2 power banana C2 BTX 153 be a good choice for the Japanese mountains?

  • Absolutely, the T. Rice is a dreamy board for aggressive riding anywhere on the mountain. The camber offers power and stability, while the Banana between the binding inserts will help you effortlessly float through powder. 153 sounds like a good size for you.
    You could also check out our Board Finder for some additional suggestions:

  • Joseph Kordenbrock

    I have a pair of ride revolt bingings from my old board would those be to flexy for this board?

  • Martn Herb

    whats the difference with the fundamental range?

  • Bryce Student

    How is the Eco Sub Sintered Base Material different from a normal Sintered Base? More specifically, what is meant by Eco Sublimation compatible?
    Thank you!

  • The FundaMENTAL graphics are only available at select retailers, so it’s more of a limited, special edition graphic.
    But built with the same specs and construction!

  • Hi Bryce,
    It’s a sintered base, but we printed it using our proprietary Eco Sublimation process.
    No other snowboard companies make sintered bases that are this vibrant and crisp, yet eco-friendly.

    Same goes for our topsheets, we don’t use any harmful clear coats and our factory doesn’t create any hazardous waste!

  • Austin

    Im 5 foot 10 weighing in a 190, mostly a groomer rider with a bit of park thrown and a few powder days a year. Only have money for one board, looking at the 157 T-rice. Am I looking at the correct board for my ride style? If not what would you suggest?

  • Austin again.

    Forgot to mention I rock a 12 boot.

  • Christian Mcarthur

    So I am 6’3 180lb and a pretty good rider. I love the power and groomed snow. I am looking at the 157w board. Is that good for me you think or should I go bigger? I have a size 12 boot as well. What do you guys think?

  • Christian Mcarthur

    I mainly enjoy the woods and moguls though so do you think I will have a problem with turning?

  • Chad Yanez

    i heard you suck

  • Chad Yanez

    i think you should stop trying to snowboard

  • Chad Yanez

    it really just depends on how you feel when you ride. i use a 153 trice and a buddy of mine who weighs 20lbs less than me rides a 158 & I’m 5’11, 175.

  • Christian Mcarthur

    chad doesn’t snowboard

  • Chad Yanez

    do your homework stretch!

  • Hi Austin, 157 sounds like it could be killer for you–it won’t float through powder quite as good as a bigger board, but I think you’ll love it for cruising all over the mountain and riding park.

    Standard width T-Rices are pretty wide, but with size 12 boots you might want to consider going for a wide. I’d recommend comparing the waist width of your favorite board with both that of the wide (26.3cm) and standard (25.8cm) T-Rice 157 and going with the closest option.

  • If you’re spending a good amount of time in the powder, you might want to jump up to the 161.5.

    Standard width T-Rices are somewhat wide, but with size 12
    boots you might want to consider going for the wide version. I’d recommend
    comparing the waist width of your favorite board (or one that you have ridden
    without getting toe drag) with both that of the wide (26.5cm) and standard (26cm)
    T-Rice 157 and going with the closest option.

  • If you know how to turn a snowboard, you won’t have any trouble turning the T-Rice–it’s got a responsive flex pattern and base contour, plus a generous sidecut!

  • Nick

    I’m 6′ 1″ and 160 pounds.

    Would the T.rice pro 155 be a good choice for a more aggressive park board?

  • Rasmus Lindquist

    i wonder the same thing. and how big are the difference between t.rice pro and attack banana?
    i will go to alperna soon and i need to make a decision!
    please answer lib tech!

  • Jesse

    Im about 5’9, 140, and I’m looking at the T-Rice pro 155 blunt. Does that sound about the right size with the 155 or should I go 157?? I have a 147 rocker for park right now and am just looking for something longer and more solid with not AS play so I can feel more comfortable catching a bit more speed!

  • Yes!
    It’s definitely going to be on the more aggressive side of the spectrum for a park board, but it’s true twin with our C2 base contour (Banana/Camber hybrid). It’ll offer a catch-free ride for jibs, but power and pop for jumps. All packed into a stiff flex pattern, true twin shape.

    The Attack Banana will feel more forgiving due to the addition of basalt fibers (less aggressive than the blend of fiberglasses used in the T-Rice) and also because it has a more mellow camber underfoot.

  • Hello there Jesse!
    The 157 will float you better in deep snow and offer more power/stability.
    But the 155 will be more versatile, maneuverable and playful!

    I don’t think you’ll have any trouble with either size, and you’ll have a blast on whatever you decide on!

  • Kyle

    I’m 6’1 185 and like to ride mostly natural powder terrain when available, with some groomers and kickers thrown in there with varying conditions in CA. My riding style is big power carves and such and don’t ever touch the park. Would the 157 hold its own on back country runs/powder/natural terrain? Or would the 161.5 be too much for standard groomer runs with some kickers and the like? I can only afford one stick. Thanks.

  • Ben

    Hey – I’m 6’4″ 200lbs and currently ride a 2008 Never Summer Titan X (i think it’s a 160 or 162). It’s a solid all-mountain board, but traditional camber and super heavy. I ride mostly powder (trees), groomers and some jumps in CA and I want a board that is more fun and less sluggish (i.e. lighter, more pop off little jumps, twin for riding switch, etc) so that I can mess around on the mtn more freely but still shred down the hairy slopes if needed, which led me to Lib. Also, I may need the 164W but am not sure (size 13 boot). What would you recommend to add to my quiver? i have landed on the T. Rice, but am open to suggestions…

  • Patrik Michalička

    Hello, I´m 5’6″ (171cm) and 159lbs (72kg) and boot size 10, can you recommend me any board from Travis Rice Collection? I would have flexible board for all mountain and freestyle, softer for easy tricks. My choice is Travis Rice Pro Model (157 or 157W). What do you think? Thanks for your opinion. Sorry for bad english.

  • Patrick

    What did you pick? I’m in the same boat.

  • Aaron A

    First off, I’d like to say you guys are awesome and love the boards! I’ve been riding a 152 skate banana for the last 6 seasons and it’s time for a new board. I recently purchased a 153 T Rice and I found it a little too stiff for my liking and I’m considering getting the 150 T Rice since it has a flex rating of 5 similar to the skate banana. Just wondering if this would be a good move??

    I ride all kinds of terrain; deep powder days, park, hard pack snow, off small cliffs, popping off features and hips, buttering on the groom runs, love going fast when possible, and pretty much snowboard whatever the mountain has to offer. So I’m looking for a one board solution for all that and then some. Seemed like the skate banana handled it all but I’d like to get into something else and I’m open to suggestions.

    I’m 5’6″ and weigh 145-150. Boot size 9. Riding experience advanced.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Marten Herbst

    Hi, could you please tell us the difference in weight between the t.rice pro 157 and the t.rice pro 157 horsepower? that would be great! thanks in advance!

  • Adam

    So i’ve been a lib tech rider for a few years now and am in the market to replace my old attack banana 159, I’m 6’3″ 215lbs size 12 boot, i have been seriously considering a T rice pro model. I mainly ride pow now with groomers on occasion and i find that i have a lack of control with my attack banana in powder, possibly because its not a good size board for my stature. I have been looking at the 161.5 or the 164. do you think that would suit my needs as i progress into more and more pow riding?

  • Timothy Hayden

    cant decide on T Rice Pro or hot knife

    I am trying the board finder and it spits out TRice Pro 155 and two TRS 157 and 159. I wonder why they don’t come out with the same board length. I am 6′, weight 180 lbs, and shoe size 9. I went to one of your resellers and they said I should not go for 155 period. So, I am a bit confused.
    I have been reading in your posts that the T Rice is like a wide board in comparison to standard boards. However, in your specs the width on both 157 boards is 25.8 on TRice and 25.3 on TRS. That is a very small difference. So, not sure why the board finder would suggest a 155.

    I also read that the T Rice feels more tankish. Why is that? Is it due to relatively long effective edge length? it has 121 which only 160+ boards typically have. So, what was the intend of this board? Small and compact yet able to plow through all kinds conditions and park?
    For me I am an advanced snowboarder for all mountain. Less park. Have done switch stance riding but feel directional riding is better on your body. My goal is to find a fast board which can handle gnarly and powder conditions and can turn quick when I need it to be. When riding fast I like a stable board which does not lose the edge and can handle icy patches too.

    Thanks so much in advance.

    Hi Marten, from what I found the HP is lighter due to a different wood they use. They call it HP for Horsepower due to different wood characteristics. not sure however, how much more horsepower that adds… 😉

    I have the new T Rice pro and its awesome..I have a 157 and i’m 170lbs-175lbs i’ve done everything from the park and groomers to the tightest trees you can imagine in about 5 feet of powder and even got in some back country runs through open powder..Its super fast super stable and is pretty playful i love buttering through the pow on this thing. The board has performed amazingly for me in every way. I will say it hasn’t been as durable as I hoped but I don’t necessarily think I can blame that on the board I have had it in some pretty tight places to the least. All in all its the best board i’ve ever ridden. I upgraded from a 2007 TRS.

    I have the new T rice pro in a 157 and I need to upgrade my bindings..anyone have a good suggestion for bindings for this board. I need something dependable and durable as I find myself in the backcountry and side country more than anywhere else.

    if you get the Travis go 157 more aggressive bit stiffer and more stable. if you go TRS get 159 still stable but a bit more playful than the travis.
    You dont need a wide in either board. Size 9 boot will fit no problem (I work at a Lib dealer and have ridden both boards)

  • Uwe Weinkauf

    Thanks Chuck. I am glad for your response. I bought the TRS 159 yesterday and heading to the mountains (Tahoe) on the weekend. I am upgrading from my old 2007 Lib Jamie Lynn board (160). Cant wait to feel the difference. I was toying with the 157 over 159 since Lib’s board finder suggests mostly 157 across all boards for my size. But in the end I went with 159 (traditional thinking). Plus I don’t do parks much and prefer to rip all mountain terrain and pow.

    I also ride a T.Rice (161.5) since a few years (got the 2012 model) and I had ride it with Burton Cartel (2012) and Malavita’s (2014), both are great bindings for the whole mountain, the ankle straps are comfy, burton cap straps are the best in my opinion, you can adjust canting for a more agressive ride, spoiler angles (if you want to put them inline with the edge) and after riding both I got a preference for malavita’s because the spoiler is a bit more stiff than on cartels, and also the ankle strap on these is fantastic (I had ride “custom” bindings for a while : malavita’s ankle strap on my cartels (the ankle strap on the cartel 2012 wasn’t the same quality than nowadays models)).
    I had never really experimented others bindings but those models can handle the whole mountain and being settled perfecly as you like.

  • You’ll love either one!

  • HP construction contains a different wood core, but we also removed the fiberglass from the board and replaced it with basalt fiber!
    The basalt is lighter, more lively, has a more consistent flex pattern and will do a better job of absorbing vibration.

    Travis Rice like having the lightest possible board, so we started building HP construction boards just for him!

  • I’d probably steer you towards the 164.5!
    I think you will find it to have more of a powerful/sturdy/aggressive feel than the Attack Banana, you’ll love it in the powder!
    The bigger size will also offer more float.

  • You may want to check out the TRS–you’ll probably find it to be more snappy, flexy and fun than the T-Rice.

  • If you’re looking for a flexy/forgiving board, this one won’t be the best option for you.
    Check out the Lib Tech Skate Banana or the Gnu Smart Pickle–maybe the Attack Banana, too!

    The Travis Rice has a thicker core underfoot, stiff flex pattern (bi-axial and tri-axial fiberflass) and it kind of a beast. It might not be the best board for progression, specifically if you’re wanting something soft for freestyle riding.

  • Yes, I think the T-Rice will be awesome for what you’re looking for.
    So sorry for the delay–wintertime tends to be pretty busy for us!

    With size 13 boots you should definitely go for a wide.

    Hello, i want to know what the base and edge angles are on the board stock from Lib Tech?

    Hello,

    I just purchased a T.Rice Pro and I’m very excited about the performance of the board. I come from an old camber and having in mind the CRC profile of the board, what kind of stance do you advice in order to apply correct pressure on the pressure points. Should it be ducked or can go with zero or less ducked on the back foot? Also as the profile is true twin, is it fine to setback a while?

    Thank you

    Im 6 ft 160 lbs will the 157 work for me? i’m about to buy one but don’t know if that size will work

  • Roy Wellmann

    Hello, im really debating on whether getting this board in 153 or 155. I’m 5,8 and 140 pounds. Also if you would recommend any bindings with this board what would they be?
    Thank you

  • Roy Wellmann

    I also wear a size 10.5 boot

  • Jay

    Id say 155 If you want more stability and carving power, it’s going to be a lil stiffer but you will be able to go faster. I’ve tried this board before in 155, I am 5’8 like you and 145 lbs… It had quick toe to heel shift and great carving capabilities. I am from the east coast so there is no powder here. 155 would be better if you ride pow. For me I would take it in 153 because I like to butter a lot. Hope this helps!

  • Reza Ebrahimi

    Hello All, I’ve been riding a Skate Banana for the past 2 years and I want to step up to something a bit more Carvy and advanced. I’m considering Travis Rice Pro and TRS but I need to know which is the easiest to ride?
    I am looking for a Catch-free ride that’s not too exhausting to carve for all day outings.
    Please advise me any way that you can. Many Thanks. Rez

    Hiya Bought a T Rice Pro C2 BTX 161.5 and love it. (already have a traditional camber 157, so wanted something a little longer for speed, carving and powder) Only used for several days as bought whilst boarding, but a great board. Want to get my boys onto Lib Tech too. My 17 Yr old is 65kgs and 5’9″ Seen a Hot Knife 156 C3 BTX. He will be use in a similar way, with a bit of park. Can you tell me what the main diff is between the C3 BTX and the C2 BTX – looks very similar. Many thanks
