Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard 2020
The Lib Tech Skate Banana is a game changer. Magne-traction edges provide irreplicable edge hold even in the most hard packed ice so there’s no more worrying about your feet sliding out underneath you when powering through all conditions. This board is perfect for the rider looking for all round performance and will power through any conditions to get their riding in.
REVOLUTIONARY SNOWBOARD THAT MAKES SNOWBOARDING EASIER & MORE FUN - Upon release the Skate Banana really was a product that you could call a game changer. While you could argue that other brands has tried to introduce rocker, it was only the combination of this revolutionary profile with their undulating edge technology that made it work correctly. Since these early days Lib Tech have come to realise that a whole host of different riders are now using what was essentially derived as a park model. As such, a little camber was added under the feet to benefit high speed stability and overall control. This is less than the C2 profile you might find in a T.Rice and thus aims to steer the Skate Banana into the more playful all round category. A sure fire winner with our staff!
THE ULTIMATE BOARD TO PROGRESS ON - The soft flex and overall rocker is combined with humps of minimal camber under the feet to aid edge hold and stability at high speeds. This truely is a board you could take for your first turns but then never need to change.
FAST, LOW MAINTENANCE ECO SUBLIMATED TNT BASE - The Skate Banana range uses the same Original Power construction as more expensive boards like their Terrain Wrecker. However, here we see this premium core combined with their TNT base. This makes the board ideal for all mountain or park use given the excellent speed and minimal maintenance requirements.
Magnatraction - To say the Lib Tech factory is experimental would be a massive understatement. Their staff can pursue concepts that would be immediately outlawed in other brands. Once such tech is magnatraction, the undulating edge which products epic levels of grip compared with a standard sidewall shapes. Many have tried to copy but the reality is nobody does it quite like Lib. Turns ice into powder with one turn.
