My buddy loved it
A friend of mine demo'd the 164 and had nothing but good things to say. He's an intermediate rider and had no problems with the variable conditions and steep slopes on this thing. So don't think the banana is just for powder--with the magne-traction it's basically an all-mountain machine. He wanted to keep it.

im 6' 200lbs i have a custom x 160 that needs replacing. i am looking for a board that will slay it in 1-2 ft and anything on the mountain. i have a malolo for anything deeper. i was wondering if the 157btx would be fine, i feel like the 161.5 would be too much
I'm the same size as you (10 lbs. lighter), and I'd say definitely go with the 157. At 6', anything above 160 is getting into more of the powder range. As a fellow Malolo owner, get a 157, as the lolo will kill any and all powder you need to hit, while the lib tech will fill the gaps from park and pipe.
trice makes it you ride it
i ride two boards trice 157 and t6 159 when travis makes aboard you know its sick thats it thats all he is the best freerider on the planet and so is his board carves through any thing you will never go wrong with a lib tech best boards out there for free riding with pros like eric sammy mark travis jamie come on its a know brainer backcountry ruler buy one
just got this board...is it me or are the...
just got this board...is it me or are the colors on this board not as vibrant as it appears in the pics???I'm comparing this board to others that i've seen in stores and the graphics on this looks somewhat hazy, the lines don't seem defined and sharp/clear. is this how it's supposed to look like?
None of us can really comment on what you expected.
I've had three LIB's. All three have had lackluster coloring. I'm guessing it is because they use renewable resources, soy bean ink n stuff.
How does this board compare to the trs...
How does this board compare to the trs mtx? thinking of buying that or t.rice. please help.
3 differences really. The shape, width and stiffness. The T-rice has two distinct shapes that are both different then the TRS. The Rice has a blunt shape in the smaller ones for park and pointy in the larger ones for pow. The TRS is just your general freestyle shape. For the width the T-rice is considered a mid wide so it is much more suited for someone with a size 10 and up foot, where as the TRS has just a regular width to it. Lastly the T-rice is stiffer and more all mountain/freeride driven, simply because that is how T-rice wanted it. Whereas the TRS is softer, hence more park and freestyle driven.But on the lib tech website, they say that it's suitable for boot size 8.5+. so it's necessary not for someone with big feet right?
what bindings does everyone find works...
what bindings does everyone find works best with this board?
anything works.... depending on your skill level you want either a stiff binding or a soft binding. Stiff if you are good and ride aggressive, soft if you are still learning or working on your park skills. Go with Flux bindings either way. Normally the more expensive the stiffer and more adjustability. Go with Flux Titan. good all purpose with tons of features
On the offical home page of LIBTECH, they...
On the offical home page of LIBTECH, they say that T.RICE model comes with BANANA TECH + magne traction.Here I just can read it comes with magne traction.
mtx only has magnatraction. the btx has magnatraction and a banana camber.. thats a different board than this one. this has a regular camber to it
this board is SICK NASTY
First i bought a 161.5 board and it was good...but I felt like there was too much board so i felt like i could go shorter... (6'0'' 175lbs) and so i decided to go with the 157. The 157 is awesome! i went boarding with it the other day on a pretty icy slope (east coast, typical) and that shit was great. Holds an edge real good and you can definitely tell the MTX works. I highly recommend this board! handles real well on the ice and its mad fun in the park! took it on some jumps and it was awesome!!
does this board have the magne traction?
does this board have the magne traction?
All Lib boards have Magnetraction. When you see MTX in the title it means it has it, BTX is banana Technology w/ Mag. Good stuff.
Stands out above all others
Was shocking how this board rode! I did not realize the differance this edge made. There is no comparison in hard pack or east coast ice. I had been a bit rough on my last one and cracked it down the middle. I sent it back within a year from when I bought it with the recipt and he Lib guys took it back! They sent me a bran new one of the next years stock! When a company stands behind their boards like that they will have a customer for life! Would recomend this board and company to even my grandmother!
last year i rode a burton custom and custom...
last year i rode a burton custom and custom x, and i'm interested in the lib tech mtx and btx boards for this year. i've read that the btx boards are not stable at speed, any truth to this? i'm in my mid 30's with a bum hip and shoulder and don't need a trick board, i just want something that is all mountain manageable that will rule in powder. the custom x is kind of that board but nose dives in pow, and i've heard that the btx is killer for pow. advice?
Corp... You're looking in the right direction. I'm 36 and this will be my 20th season snowboarding. whithout a doubt, the MTX is the real deal. I can't speak to BTX because I haven't ridden one, but I have a TRS 167 from last year and it is an unbelievable ride. Like you, I'm not a park guy, but like to ride the natural terrain. I rode 27 days on Mt Bachelor (Oregon) after getting the Lib Tech and was really happy with it. It worked well on everythig from powder to crud up on the summit to groomers and chewed up tree runs down low. My only negative observation is that when you're haulin a*#, it seems to be a little grabby. The only thing I can say is maybe I didn't detune my edges enough.....who knows. Anyway, the thing rides great fakie as well. I have ridden 30 or 40 different freestyle and park boards over the years (worked in the snowboard industry for a few years) and this one seems to beat them all. Bottom Line MTX is the way to go!
MTX or DIE
This is by far the best snowboard I have ever rode. The MTX gives you unbelievable control. I have had boards that take a lot of work to ride, but not with this board. I owned it, and had complete control of my riding. The edge hold wasnt overboard, but was for surely there when I hit hard pack snow, and icy patches. The only reason I would ever ride anything else is if I decide to go with Libs BTX with reverse camber, but other than that I will NEVER buy anything else.
MTX is legit. This board rips all over the mountain and grips hardpack and ice like no other standard edged board. There is definitely no downside to mtx edges-it's all on the up and up! This board is on the medium flex side. maybe a 6.5 or 7 on the Burton scale. I used to ride nothing but Burton 50+ days (and many of them UT pow days) but once I got the T rice with mtx, I'll never buy anything but a Lib. The downside to this board is that it is not as durable as a burton due to a softer base (which is also slow overall with fresh, proper degree wax), and the topsheet peels but generally this is only cosmetic and my board took a beating on the cirque for 1.5 seasons without coming apart as many boards have in my past. Last but not least, if you are a newer rider, mtx is much less likely to catch an edge that any snowboarder knows can be punishing when hauling $%#!!!
had last years, this is essentially the same board with the addition of a stronger topsheet made of beans(no joke, check lib's site) & alleged improvements to the base...
Destroys the entire mountain, stable at speed, carves on hardpack.. Board kills it anywhere, whether it be at your icy local resort or outer mongolia double black back bowls at Vail...
Travis eats kittens.. His snowboard is rad too. buy it. Wax with bluebird..
had last years board and loved it, havent ridden this one yet but judging from the last model this one will be even better, magnatraction actually makes a huge difference
How does the stiffness of this board compare...
How does the stiffness of this board compare to the '08 Burton Custom? I normally ride a 156, which size should I purchase?
The T-Rice and the Custom are relatively the same as far as stiffness. The T-Rice is a little wider. I would recommend getting the same size or relatively close though. You don't want to play around too much with that.
