Weapons-grade bananas for tactical shredding.
Lib Tech believes that you shouldn't need a quiver of boards to ride everything on the mountain, which is where the Attack Banana EC2 BTX snowboard enters the picture. It's based off the award-winning, competition-smashing, cult-inspiring Skate Banana, and cranks up the all-terrain prowess by adding EC2 to the equation. The result is a more powerful ride than the Skate Banana, and more forgiveness than the aggressive C2 boards. Which means your powder board is your rail board, and your rail board rips the pipe. It's totally bananas, and we totally dig it.
The Attack Banana is built on Lib's EC2 BTX rocker profile. Basically, that means that there's rocker between the bindings, while the tip and tail have a modest degree of camber. The result is a loose, catch free ride that feels about halfway between the freestyle fun of the Skate Banana, and the more aggressive C2 boards, like the T.Rice pro model. It gets better with Magne-Traction edges, which place seven strategic bumps along the edges. The bumps are bigger between the feet, which concentrates most of the grip there for a ride feeling that's a lot like your skateboard. Plus it's a true twin, for unrestricted switch trickery.
The Columbian Gold core uses sustainably harvested wood for a board that's light, and snappy. Power Transfer internal sidewalls crank up the durability, and they're buffered by UHMW external sidewalls for impact resistance. The Teflon infused TNT base holds up to jibbing and runs fast even when you forget to wax it for a few days. Best of all, you can rest easy knowing that your snowboard was built with eco-friendly materials by snowboarders with jobs.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bought the 2013 model on sale but supposedly not much has changed. I wanted to upgrade from a Forum Stomper I've had since 09, a do everything kind of board and this does exactly what I wanted. Doesn't press as nicely as the stomper but I up sized to the 161 cm from a 154. It floats through powder, and feels loose on the groomers. It's a surfy playful board but you can get it to bite down and turn hard when needed. Was very forgiving, as I was looking back to see which route my friends were taking I only caught an edge once causing me to spill. Was a recoverable spill but I was lazy (recovering from abdominal surgery) so just went down with it.
I wouldn't recommend this for carvers, but I found it to be very fast and stable on flat open descents. Fun in deep stuff and magne traction helps in the crud and ice. My favorite board right now and I got a good deal on the price so I'm happy! Graphics are beautiful and Mervin makes boards that will last a lifetime!
