Skinnier shape, same fun feel.
Groms, ladies, and dudes with smaller feet rejoice—the Skate Banana Original BTX Narrow Snowboard is a narrower version of Lib Tech's legendary Skate Banana, the board with the perfect blend of Banana Tech and Magne-Traction that turned the industry upside down a few years back. With a scaled-down flex to match the board's geometry, the Skate Banana is ready to take you from the park to the peak and everywhere in between.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. That saying certainly holds true when talking about the proven BTX profile. It features rocker between the bindings with mellow camber out towards the tips for a catch-free ride that can still hold an edge when you're laying down carves on hardpack. 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 more like a skateboard and less like standing on some old timer's skis. Plus it's a true twin for unrestricted switch shredding.
The Columbian Gold/Power A core uses fast-growing, sustainably harvested wood for a board that's light yet poppy and strong. Power Transfer internal sidewalls crank up the durability, and they're buffered by UHMW external sidewalls for impact resistance, plus the TNT base is easy to repair when you ding it up on rocks and rails. Best of all, you can rest easy knowing that your snowboard was built with eco-friendly materials in the US.

banana for days.....
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
you see more skate bananas than any other board on the hill, and for good reason too. the skate banana was one of the boards that started the reverse camber revolution and has managed to stay at the forefront year after year. My bro got one last year, and he realized that he loves snowboarding again. To keep it real I gotta mention that as legit as this board it, don't expect to point and tuck down a groomer (or icer for those Ontario riders) cause at Mach 4 you'll hate the lack of stability go it's reverse camber.
