    could you please help to understand the benefits of HP version of TRS board.
    – the main benefit is that TRS HP is lighter compared to TRS?
    – can you give some numbers in gramms, how much lighter TRS HP is compared to TRS (in 157cm size).
    – TRS HP has different core materials compared to TRS. which one has more pop and power?
    – is there some difference in riding behavior between TRS and TRS HP?

    thanks in advance!!

  • Lib Tech

    Hi Roman,
    Horsepower construction (HP) means the board contains only basalt fibers and no fiberglass.
    It tends to be about half a pound lighter than our traditional boards.
    The basalt also has a more consistent flex pattern throughout the entire board and will absorb vibrations better.
    ….it’s also really sparkly because of the bio beans topsheet!

    You might find the HP has a bit more pop because it flexes differently, but they’ll have the same amount of power.

  • Alex

    My wieght is 194lb. 159 is good for me?

  • Lib Tech

    Yeah, the 159 should be great!

  • needforit

    My wieght is 170cm.My weight is 47kilograms.Which size should I choose?By the way,could you please tell me how many days will this snowboard will be saled(30%off)

  • Lib Tech

    You should also check out the 151N in the non-horsepower TRS…you might be happy with the smaller size.

    I’m not sure the exact date we will be taking these boards off our website, but probably between August 1st-15th.

  • needforit

    That’s enough,thanks a lot.

  • Sal

    Hey Team LIB Tech,

    I am 6’1″ 220Lbs with a boot size of 11.5. I have been riding a GNU 161W carbon Credit board for the past 5 Years. It is time for a new board and it looks like the TRS if calling me. I am an all mountain rider with the preference of Trees and Pow. I and getting more into Back country Chutes and steeps and things. I am thinking of going to a 159mw for better control and spacing in trees. How will this board help take me to the next level and is the idea of moving to a 159mw a good idea?

  • Lib Tech

    Hi Sal,
    I think you’ll love the TRS–the TRS Horsepower doesn’t come in a midwide, so you’ll want to go for the standard construction for size 11.5 boots.
    The shorter length will be easier to maneuver through trees, chutes and crowded groomers (which are unfortunately an inevitable part of snowboarding) It has camber underfoot, which your Carbon Credit does not, this will give the board a more solid feel and it will lock into edges better and feel more stable at high speeds. It also has basalt fibers in it which will do a better job of absorbing vibration as well as add a really lively feeling and a LOT of pop. This board rules. It will be a huge step up in performance from the carbon credit and tons of fun to ride. TRS stands for Total Ripper Series, and let me tell you…it is appropriately named!

  • Sal

    Thank you for the info. It is everything that my research came up with also. sometimes you just need conformation you are on the right track.

  • Kevin

    hi, I m 170cm in height, 74kg (stocky built), intermediate level. I am gonna get the TRS HP. What size would you recommend? 154 or 157?

  • Lib Tech

    Hi Kevin,
    the 154 is going to feel more versatile for riding anywhere on the mountain, so that’s probably what I would recommend.
    But if you’ve been riding bigger boards in the past, or if you plan on not doing any sort of freestyle/park riding, you could go for the 157..I don’t think you’ll have any issues on a bigger board. But the 154 will offer a lot more maneuverability and be a more playful ride.

  • needforit

    I want to know how much will I pay for the postage? From Canada to China. I have a friend and she lives in Canada.

  • Lib Tech

    We don’t ship to China, but we are currently offering free shipping on Canadian orders over $75 (excluding surfboards).
    If you’re ordering the board and having it shipped to your friend, she’ll have to figure out the shipping rates to China independently, since she will be the one shipping it. Unfortunately I don’t have any more information or an estimate for you.

  • needforit

    Thanks a lot some people tell me,I maybe cost 70CAD,if she figure out the shipping rates to China. she’ll have to figure out the shipping rates to China she’ll have to figure out the shipping rates to China

  • SvenD

    My wieght is 170cm.My weight is 55kilograms.Which size should I
    choose? I had checked out the 151N wihout HP, but its not aviable in my country (germany). Online the 154 LIBTECH
    TRS HP

  • SvenD

    & my sizeboot is 9!^^

  • Lib Tech

    154 Sounds like it will be great! It’s going to be slightly on the larger side, but definitely not too big for you to ride.
    And the HP construction is lighter, damper and has a more consistent flex from nose to tail, so you can ride a bigger board without much effort or strain.

  • Bruno Nunes

    Hi, I’m 187cm with 82kg and with a bootsize of 10,5. For that, would de 157 be suitable or I would need to go to the 159?

    Thanks a lot

  • Lib Tech

    The 157 will be just fine for size 10.5 boots!

  • Alex Ryan

    Hey guys,

    I’m 5’11” about 165lbs with a bootsize of 10 – 10.5 and trying to figure out what size board I should ride. Thoughts?

  • Lib Tech

    Hi Alex,
    For a versatile board to ride ANYWHERE I would say 155-158.
    You could go smaller (153-154) for a jibby/freestyle board.
    Or bigger (159-162) for a board that will excel in powder

  • COLIN S.

    I’m 6’1 and about 170 with a boot size of 10-10.5 and trying to figure out what board size would work best for me. Appreciate any feedback!

  • Lib Tech

    Hey Colin,
    You can pretty much ride anything in the 154-161 range.
    Don’t go too small unless you’re looking for a park board and don’t go too big unless you’ll be primarily riding off the groomers.
    A 157-159 is going to be really versatile for effortless riding all over the mountain.

    If you’d classify yourself as being a pretty aggressive rider who wants a powerful yet fun board, the TRS is killer option. If you want something more playful and forgiving you should check out the Attack Banana or Box Scratcher…but if you want something insanely aggressive look at the Darker Series.

  • Colin S

    Thanks for the reply, I went with the TRS HD 159. I figured that was the best option for all mountain riding, like you said. I picked the 159 over the other because I plan on doing some back country riding! (as well as messing around in some terrain parks/half pipes)

  • Bryce Student

    What are the main differences between this model and the Firepower FM? Forgive me for skimping on my research but from what I can tell it must be the internal construction. I expected their bases to be different, i.e. sintered and not, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Just trying to figure out what I get for the extra $140 :) I’ve ridden the 2014 TRS HP and found it drastically better that the standard TRS and am curious if the same difference may be felt between these two levels, I’d hate to cheap out and miss out on an incredible board.

  • Lib Tech

    Hi Bryce!
    With the TRS FP we thinned out the core and extended it further into the nose and tail, so it weighs less and has a reduced spinweight. We also added carbon reinforcements and end grain balsa timbers to add strength and stiffness from the thinner core.

    It’s definitely a step up in performance and has higher end materials than the Horsepower version, but all of the TRS’s are phenomenal boards.

  • Bryce Student

    So lighter, stronger, and less rotational inertia… it sounds ideal. Are the edges stainless steel throughout the TRS line? I have not been fortunate enough to own a board with the magne-traction and am curious how delicate that feature is when it comes to sharpening. I find I hardly, if ever, need to sharpen my current stainless edges. Also, since weight its clearly an important point are the boards full or partially wrapped?

  • Lib Tech

    Every single Mervin Made board has partial wrapped edges.
    Partly because it is lighter, but also for durability reasons–because the nose and tail of a snowboard are often impact-prone, removing the metal edges from those areas and replacing it with a sturdy plastic can prevent devastation!

    Magne-Traction is super easy to tune, we recommend using a smaller file to fit between the grooves if you’re hand tuning the board. But you can run it through any tuning machine without issue. One benefit of Magne-Traction is that you get unbeatable edgehold and control even with the dullest of edges, so you really might not need to tune it much,

  • Brian

    Which are the DIY boards (TRS in particular), regular, HP, Firepower? The XC2 BTX & C2 BTX seem quite similar. Where do they differ in what they were designed to do?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Lib Tech

    DIY boards are built with standard construction.
    C2 and XC2 are somewhat similar, because they both feature Banana between the feet with camber underfoot. But XC2 features an extended camber for even more pressure underfoot and a more snappy ride. C2 just has a standard amount of camber.
    BTX is our easiest to ride and most forgiving base contour, it has Banana between the feet (like of all of our boards), but it just flattens out for a catch free, playful ride. Perfect for learning to ride, but also very jib-friendly and lending a lot of float to powder riding.

    Here’s a link that better explains our technologies:

    I’d also HIGHLY suggest scoping the boards out at your local shop, it will help you get a better idea of how they will ride.
