We’re not sure Travis Rice ever really ‘keeps it mellow’, but when he’s not filming in the backcountry, he’s riding his pro-model C2BTX HP Blunt Tip Snowboard. The blunt tip and tail shape increases stompability on jibs and jumps of all sizes. Rice’s signature board also gets upgraded with Horsepower construction, combining the top-secret Columbia Gold core with 100% basalt fibers (instead of traditional fiberglass) for a lighter, stronger, and more powerful ride.
- C2 Power Banana hybrid shape places camber under your feet and rocker in-between for a loose, fun ride that still carves through turns
- Columbian Gold core uses snowboard-specific, genetically-engineered wood for insane pop and light weight
- Blunt tips reduce swing weight and edge hang-ups for easier spins and slides
- Eco-friendly basalt fibers replace traditional fiberglass for a lighter, stronger, and snappier board, and also dampen vibrations for a smoother ride
- Magne-Traction edges add five contact points to offer exceptional grip and control, even on icy snow
- Bioplastic topsheet made from castor beans is both tough and good for the planet

Help me out!! Iv been looking at the 157 t-rice c2btx for awhile now. iv done my homework on this board. I really love the way that this board is sounding. Im really close to buying it. Im an intermediate rider, I like to ride all mountain, ride the side trails, do side jumps, shred the pow/go in back country and roll through the park. Im 510 and 150ibs, and size 11 boots. I ride a 153 right now, but i hate it, its to small and sketchy at high speeds. Im looking at getting the 157 t-rice. I feel like the 161.5 is a bit much for me, and the 153 to short . Since i dont like my 153 now. Im just worried about size, cuz iv read that these ride bigger than they are. is this true? what should i go with!?!? please help me out.Im really looking to greatly progress next season. Im thinkin this would be the board to help me do so.
I bought this board about 3 months ago and absolutely love it. I'm almost exactly everything you are, 5'10", 155lbs, and an 11 size foot. Go with the 153 man. These boards do ride bigger and the 157 will be too much (unnecessary) board to handle. And don't worry about feeling sketchy at high speeds, the magnetraction and C2 do all the work for you. You'll Love it!!! Hope you buy it, good luck.
I have the points version of this board in a 164.5. I got it during Christmas so I got pretty much a full season in on it. Probably the favorite board I've ever had. If the points is this good, I'm pretty tempted to get a blunt tip too!

I am set on getting a lib-tech and have done lots of research and reading tons of reviews but I would like to pose this question. I want TRS 153 but I am wondering how it holds up in rails/jibbing. I know that its 7 on flex but with banana rocker it allows for presses and whatnot. So anyone who has ridden this board, can you tell me what you think, is it better all-round than the skate banana?
This board is great on ice. I live and board in PA and we have ice here and this is the ANSWER. The board is fast and stable. I LOVE THIS BOARD
This board rips
I have to say this board is sick. I was riding on an icy day and it kept my edge the whole time. It is like night and day riding this board. I love it. It is high in the price range but if you can pay the price it is well worth it.
T.Rice Pro C3BTX 157
Great in ontario - riden in 3 ft of pow - nose planes nicely, great control in trees, great control on ice/hard pack. Fast - if tuned properly(157 will go over 60 mph on consistant 26 degree pitch). I;ve riden other 157's that I couldnt get up to these speeds. 1 negative - the top sheet seems to be a little fragile, each nick results in repairable dent that I would assess as needing attention, if not attended to could result in a point where delamination could occure - easy to fix with clear nail polish or epoxy.
157 with white missions, sick.

I am looking for a new park board. is this deck to stiff for rails and low speed flatland manuevers
hey man this board is basically a kill it all! but for rails if ur looking to nose press there might be some problems but that doesnt mean u cant hit rails. also this boards shape is like the anny burton v-rocker board its supposed to cobine the power of camber with the losseness of rocker, so some flat ground manuvers shouldnt be an issue. hope i helped dude
Thisis more like a butron flying V. It rides rails well.
One of the best boards I've ridden in a while. Taken it on everything and it performs. I don't have the cajones that Rice does but taken this in to the park and on the steep and deep runs and it killed it all. The wide width with the C2 Banana made it really stable on everything including landings off of kickers and cliffs and the HP construction makes it pop like hell.

Just bought my daughter a used snowboard ,only marks on it are ...HP logo on the top side (between the bindings)of the board(with the 146 size)....does anyone know who manufactured it...??
How much did you pay? HP logo is not likely a high quaility name brand...If she is a beginer, I strongly suggest spending a little more $ and getting good equipment, it really makes a big differancein this sport.
#1 - proper fitting boots - easy to tighten(Consider self lacing or Boa system boots) - not too stiff
#2 - good board - not to stiff - depending on age even raised edges - see the burton Chopper series - this make cathing edges more difficult thus making learning easier and more fun.
#3 - easy to use bindings - also not too stiff, with toe cap strap - maybe even a step-in FLOW binging.
#4 - Helmate - dont even consider letting her on the hill without one...there are lots of idiots out there that could run into her - make sure it fits correctly - go to a snowboard shop and get properly fitted before purchasing
#4 - Gloves with wrist guards built-in
#5 - goggles that fit with the helmate - make sure they fit well together.
***SPEND THE MONEY ON A LESSON***
IF you want her to enjoy this sport that will teach her life lessons and give her an outdoor activity she can enjoy with family and friends dont skimp out on important stuff...If you need to save $ do your research find a new stuff that would be great and then look for the last season's model, you should be able to save about 40-60% and still get new with warranty and great quaility.

i been told the curious differents between two boards are. the btx is more flexibility than btx hp and btx forgiven more than hp..
this is true??????????????????????
Hands Down Great Board
By far the best board I have ridden. Had the chance to take it through powder ice and rails this weekend and it demolished all three. The magne-traction and C2 Hybrid shape work perfectly together. Even if your about to loose it if you can manage to make contact with a couple inches of your edge this thing will ride away smooth.
Unfortunately I managed to split the tip the first weekend I took it out but thanks to the amazing customer service and return policy here I will still be able to ride. Even if you can find it cheaper on another website, buy it here; it's worth it.

Just about to pull the trigger but couldn't decide between Blunt tip vs. Pointed. Anyone have any thoughts on what differences I would notice? I appreciate any input
blunt unless you are going for a board bigger than 160.
then get the pointy
i would get the 157 blunt for an all mountain machine
I am 6'2 200 lbs - Will that be long enough????
I was thinking I might have to get the 161.5
blunt tipped dude.

I have a size 12 boot. Is this board too skinny for me? I am buying the 161.5 model, anyone have experience with this issue? I hear better things about this than the Skunk Ape
The T-Rice is a mid-wide. Size 12 will have no problem on this board. Skunk ape is a great choice if you want a faster base, a true twin and a basalt fiber/fiberglass blend.
i 'm really confused.... i don't know what...
i 'm really confused.... i don't know what board choose..
btx or horsepower btx..????????? (lengh:1.53)
please help me!!!!
Only difference is graphics and core. The HP's core is made up of a Columbian Gold Core with a 100% Basalt fiber construction.
Ridden both. The boards ride identical and the weight difference is barely noticeable. If your cash strapped save yourself the $100 and go without the HP. Your going to love it either way.
Big decision here, Im 6'0 150 lbs. and sz...
Big decision here, Im 6'0 150 lbs. and sz 13 boot. Do I go with the Lib Technologies T.Rice Pro Model C2 BTX 161.5 board or the Lib Technologies Skunk Ape C2 BTX Snowboard - 157 Wide? I know I need a wide board because of the big feet but the Trice is already wide too. So will there be overhang with the Trice or what? any suggestions. Was prob goina go with the Union asdachi 3 bindings also. Please throw some advice my way. Peace
supp bro,, i'd personally go with the SunkApe just to make sure that the board will indeed be wide enough for you,, you can't go wrong with any Union products,, just pick the style of board/binders you wanna roll with,, ur heading in the right direction with gettin a LibTech and some Unions..//Go GeT IT!!!
Horsepower = sick graphics!
So lib tech is introducing Horsepower construction which is essentially a more eco friendly process that uses renewable, non polluting materials. They claim it makes a more lively, responsive ride...can't wait to try it out! The best part so far is the graphic...it sparkles!
Horsepower = sick graphics!
Lib Tech is introducing Horsepower this season which essentially is a more eco friendly construction using a fast growing renewable wood, basalt resins instead of fiberglass, and a castor bean top sheet. In addition to being treehugger constructed, the HP is also suppose to give the board a more lively feel.

Hey i was wondering about stiffnes of the board...
im looking for an allround board with low stiff to destroy park.
Im not looking for a banana skate bringing me trouble with deep powder and high speed.
But just need to know how much effort i will need to go manual, switching, etc and all around park tricks.
thank you ^_^
This board is definitely park oriented but is great for all mountain slaying as well. Soft enough for your manuals and presses but with the Magne-Traction edges you get plenty of edge hold at high speeds and sketchy conditions.
This is NOT a park board.... U dont hit rails on a medium-stiff boad that runs $700
