Don’t be sad that Travis Rice is better than you. Just grab the board he uses to slay it, and go start honing your skills. The Lib Technologies T. Rice BTX Snowboard uses the latest contest-winning technology to help you spin, slide, and slice through tricky situations like a true jib pro.

Just picked this stick up off a fellow on craigslist. I've been riding a 155 Robbie Sell Santa Cruz for about 5-6 years so I was jonsin for something new.
I looked around some of the local shops in Tahoe here and all their Lib Techs were mad pricey, no deals round here.
Anyways the magnatraction is incredible. The edges hold like a stage five clinger and the control that board provides is unmatched. The base provides a mind-blowing surface to rip down the face at blazzzzzzing speeds. I am sooo thrilled with my purchase and highly recommend this board/ technology to anyone looking to take their riding to the next level!!
This board is unbelievable. It holds an edge like nothing ive ever been on, is fast as hell, has great pop, and the graphics look awesome up close. The MTX is crazy too. It makes carving effortless and you can really feel it grabbing onto ice. I highly recommend this deck.
A Stiff Noodle.................
The C2 is the biggest change in a snowboard that I have ever ripped. Banana tech gave the feeling of a flimsy tail to the board, were C2 gives a firm tail for pow but still has good flex. I was most surprised by how well the board did at high speeds through chop. the C2 hands down stomps normal banana tech in to the ground.
Sick if you like directional
I had this board out for about ten days this year. It is a sick board once you get used to the stiff flex and c2 grabbyness. I thought it had mad pop and can hold an edge like nothing else. Sadly i returned mine because i thought it was a true twin so riding switch i could feel the setback and was a little grabby for my liking( i'm coming from a skate banana and for anyone who's ridin one knows it is loose and flexy). So if you want a directional twin i would highly recommend this board
Rode the board for about 6 days. Unbelievable. Incredible control over groomers, and even better over tracked fluff. Love the magne-Traction and C2BTX.
how does this board hold up in pow, or...
how does this board hold up in pow, or runnin through trees. I am lookin for a board for bush wackin and hittin the odd drop. Keep hearin about the rocker though, any pros and cons?
Great... The board is super responsive in tight tree lines and the base is durable for those errant rocks and sketchy features. The board stops at 157cm though so if your bigger and want a board that will float a bit more go with the T.Rice pro model C2 BTX; that said the 157 will float you fine you just might want to move your stance back if it's the really deep stuff. Leave the MTX series alone, the rumor is that they are discontinuing that line. Great ride... really great ride.
Sweet board (157)
Wow, I'm really impressed with this board. I used to ride hard boots so I wanted a stiffer freestyle board that could still lay down a carve without the board turning into a wet noodle. Man, magne traction is no joke in these early season conditions. It really works and surprised me that it didn't seem to interfere at all with laying down some turns (I thought it was just for sliding around the mountain with detuned edges). Base has also seemed really durable too. Nailed a number of rocks pretty good and it just has a few small scratches in it. Heads up that this board is STIFF though. I don't buy lib tech's scale as this thing is way stiffer than the banana despite it being only one or two numbers stiffer on their scale. Sweet ride, and seems to do everything well.
