Description

T.Rice’s AK-slaying, big line-ruling pointy big stick.

WARNING: when it comes to big, steep lines, the Lib Tech T.Rice C2 BTX Snowboard might make you crap your pants. Yup, it rides that smooth. Last year’s Transworld Rider of the Year Travis Rice tricked out his pow-specific pro model with Magne-Traction, and Banana rocker between the bindings and a regular camber from the bindings to the tip/tail. The result? Unreal control in the deeps and shredgnartastic feel on everything else—from crud to hardpack to ice. Note to all the save-the-world dirtbags out there: Lib Tech constructed the T.Rice with bean-derived Bio-Plastic topsheet for strength, lightness, and sustainability.
  • C2 Power Banana puts rocker between the bindings and regular camber from bindings to tip/tail for pop and high-speed control
  • Magne-Traction turns ice into powder
  • Bio-Plastic top sheet adds strength without much weight, plus it�s derived from sustainable beans
  • H-Pop Core and Power Transfer Internal Sidewalls for pop and performance
  • Double-sintered UHMW sidewalls for strength
  • Travis Rice's custom graphics pay homage to the Gyrfalcon and the Harpy Eagle, two birds-of-prey in peril

sick board for sure!

I have been riding this at Heavenly this past week through mostly pow tree runs and a little bit in the park and on some groomers and it's been so good on everything!

I'm coming off an 00-01 Forum, so this is like a dream come true for me...this thing handles so well between the magnetraction and "hybrid" camber, I couldn't imagine going back to my old board...or a regular camber board period!

I can't even describe the way it inspires confidence...hard to catch an edge because of the banana, but stable and poppy when you need it...just amazing!

Ok I need some help choosing between boards. Wil this board (T. Rice C2 BTX 164.5) fit a size 12 boot? it's not a "wide" board but is almost as wide as the dark star 161.5W (about .3cm difference)...

Responded on

I ride it with size 14 boots, there is some toe drag but its not too bad and no where close to as bad as my previous mid wide boards, the larger sizes are pretty wide so you should be able to get away with riding it with size 12's, its a sweet board

Another Q. Hows the rocker, I hear pros and cons like its choppy at high speeds. And with the reverse Camber is it quick handling? I do lots of tree runs and need a good pow board with sharp turning? I am looking at this or the T. Rice C2 BTX Snowboard, whadda ya think?

Best Answer Responded on

The C2 BTX is supposed to improve the ride at high speeds, this would be a good board for what your looking to do with it

Responded on

ive been riding the 161.5 at baker for the last few weekends and its been awesome. it floats the pow like nothing else and annihilates any trees run. it does ride like a smaller board like other reviews have stated. I never experienced any choppiness at high speeds either. So far this has to be the best all mountain board ive ridden.

Responded on

This thing KILLS the grromers and the pow. No instability at mach 5 and the camber at the tips adds pop that seems to be missing with straight up, reverse camber. It also still allows you to power through the nose and snap out of turns, to really get flying.

Hows the Directional shape, wanna try this board but heard cons on riding switch foot. What about groomed runs, I mostly ride pow but nature forces me to the groomed runs some times. At 6'4 and 200 I am lookin at the 161, sound right?

Best Answer Responded on

you can ride switch fine with it, its just not as easy as a twin board. Its a great board for powder, free riding just about anything. If you are just hitting powder and groomers all day you may want to get the 164.5, the 161.5 would be a good all mountain board if you mix in a few park runs

Anyone have any time on the C2 BTX? Like to know how this compares to old BTX.

Responded on

C2 is more stable, great if you like to bomb runs

Great Board

This is by far the best board ever made, it does it all from b lines to pow to stomping huge landings in the park, by far the best board i ever owned and c2 is sick, stable all the time and a ton of pop and magnatraction is the real deal edge hold in any condition even with detuned edges

Thinking of going with the T.Rice Pro Model C2 BTX for my powder board this winter. However, I'm not sure whether to go with the 161.5cm of 164.cm. While I'm 5'11", 155lbs and probably should ride the 161.5cm per standard sizing recs, I've been riding a Burton Custom X 160cm as my all mountain board, so I'm wondering if I should step up to the T.Rice 164.5cm given that I've already been riding a longer stick.

Any advice would be most appreciated as I'm in limbo as to what size of the T.Rice to buy given that I'm primarily just looking to ride it on powder days.

Responded on

Depends on how and where you ride. I'd go shorter for maneuverability based on your weight. Weight, strength and aggressiveness are more important in sizing than height. However boards with a significant amount of reverse camber do ride short. I have a 161 K2 Gyrator pow board and I'm 5'8" 170lbs and have been riding for about 15 years and it definitely doesn't feel long, especially on the deepest days.

Responded on

if you are looking for a powder board, consider the burton fish, burton malolo or the rockered rome notch. otherwise, you could go longer with a rockered board if you wanted to, but it isn't necessary. granted it isn't a c2, but the banana 156 btx (i ride a 159 or so normally) handled amazingly well in utah's deepest day of the season last season.

It does great. It is an all mountain board made to handle all conditions.

A store owner told me to go smaller when buying a lib tech. Is this true?

Responded on

yes, this is pretty standard with MTX boards. The "french fry" sidecut holds very well.

a lot of it depends on what kind of riding you will be doing. what is your height and weight?

Best Answer Responded on

You can go smaller with the lib tech boards but only the ones with btx (which is pretty much every board they make now), only because they we'll float so well in the pow no matter what size you get because of the reverse camber, but if i was buying a reverse camber board i would go a lil longer in size because it also has less effective edge than a regular camber board.

Responded on

I actually sized UP for pow and got the 164.5 (from 160).

sweet time

I picked this board up the other week and its SICK. the "sparkley beans" are awesome and the top of the deck looks dope.
The owner of the shop I bought it from said he rode it and loves it. Im going to have to wait til snow to give a full "ride" review. The owner of the shop said that Lib has fixed the "high speed wobble" some like to call it (BTX) with the C2.
Im hoping this board rides up to my expectations!!!! Buy it!

Responded on

also, on my 161.5, we measured the location of the bolt holes and they are 18 inches from nose to first set and 18 inches from the tail to first set. This normally means it is a twin, but I am thinking the flex might be directional.

Responded on

I have done a TON of research on this board man and it is definitely a directional board. Not by much but it is directional...

Responded on

directional flex or directional stance?

How much does the board weigh?

How much does the board weigh?

Responded on

not sure about weight but it is definately a solid build of a board,
meaning it is not superlight but it definately feels like a well built piece of equipment, hope that helps?

Is this the board you shred in deep pow with or on groomed trails and jumps?

Responded on

The 161.5 and 164.5 are what Travis Rice uses when he's freeriding deep stuff in Jackson, New Zealand and AK. A .75" set back stance and pointy nose accompanied by C2 Banana tech which is rockered enough to create a sink/float effect in deep pow but is cambered enough to allow a rider pop off windlips and cliffs. It can hold turns on groomers if necessary. If you're looking for the "jump" board, search item # LBT0142 for the BTX and LBT0141 for the MTX version.

Responded on

I rode this board in CO and I totally agree with the below review and answer. It is a good all around board, but should be used more for the pow and some groomers. If you want to jump, get the board rec'd above.

Responded on

You can do pretty much everything with this board, as I have been doing just that this past week, but it's more comfortable in the pow than it is in the park. It'll do fine on groomers as well, but if you're going to stick to groomers and the park, go for either the blunt or try one of the other lib/gnu boards.
