I wear a size 13 boot...currently in the DC Judge which seems to have a bigger footprint that most other boots I've had. Will the 164.5 be wide enough for me or should I look for a different board?
Well i think that you would have some over hang but if you really want this board you could make it work but you would need stance angles that are huge like 20 or bigger.... with a size 13 you should probably look more at the Wide or Mid Wide snowboards because you got to think a size 12 foot is approximately 30cm and the waist width is 26 cm so a 13 is even larger you would have some over hang..... I hope that Helped
Awesome ride, but possible factory defect
Bought this board wanting a hardcore shred machine that could handle anything. Don't know if the HP model is all that much lighter, but the top graphic is all sparkley (much cooler than the regular version) and you gotta like the basalt rock fibers instead of using fiberglass (green tech). This board has lived up to everything I expected: fast, light, and the C2 is amazing. Great carving machine, great in the powder (and I am over 210 lbs riding the 161) and the C2 adds control. Other reason I bought this board: width. It has a nice mid wide waist of 26.0 cm which is perfect for my size 11 feet. Not too big like most wide boards but not too small either.
Negatives: I've been on this board for 50 days this season... no rails... no impacts with trees... just a few scratches on the base... and yet the tail has begun to delaminate and about 50% of the edge on the toe side had begun to separate from the sidewall. I'm not sure why, there is no obvious trauma to the board. Every time I ride the gaps get wider so it is becoming dangerous.
That being said, I realize that this can happen ever so often when boards are manufactured. A day with above average humidity can be problematic in a snowboard factory. What would make this less of a pain is if the warranty service was on par. Ive sent in a warranty request with pictures of the damage and it has been almost a week with no response... there is also no phone number to contact their warranty service directly. I'm a snowboard instructor and I need my shred stick intact! I hate to say it, but sorry Lib Tech, Burton has you beat in the warranty department. Had this been a Burton board my new ride would already be in the mail, arriving tomorrow.
Update: Insert foot in mouth here... I was sending email files with too many pictures on them (25 MB total) and I guess the Lib email can only handle up to 10 MB... thus no response... Right now the board is in the mail (shipped for free from my local Lib dealer) and I hope we will have a quick turn-around. Can't wait to ride the beast some more.
Full view of base
There's a reason why this board has Travis Rice's name on it.
I don't even know where to begin...
Out of my 7 years of riding experience of regular boards (without magna traction) I always had a tough time in that hard packed powder/ice/nasty stuff. I just got this board as a gift for christmas and got to finally test it out a couple days ago in 10"!!
First impression...I almost ate shit on a front edge because I'm so used to having to actually try to turn and carve hard. I've never ridden magna traction before and this technology is so insane! When compared to all the other boards I have ridden...it feels like they have been holding my skill level down. Now, this new board had literally upped my skill and the things I can do without worrying about losing traction/edge.
I used to hate snowboarding once all the powder got packed down but now...I can rip through anything! This board literally turned that hard packed/ice into groomers (of course you still feel the bumps in your legs). I can turn so hard and rip through anything like a tank. Bottom line...if your style is shredding everything you can think of then I don't know why you still haven't bought this board after having finished reading this review xD.
P.S - I live in Alaska and we get nasty weather up here all the time. This board is top of the line pro quality. I can definitely see why it has Travis Rice's name on it.
