Travis's favorite shape, scaled for smaller rippers.
It doesn't matter who you ask, pretty much everyone knows that Travis Rice is one of the gnarliest guys to ever strap a snowboard to his feet. But even Travis had to learn, which is why Lib Tech built the T. Ripper snowboard for smaller shredders with big dreams. The shape is a scaled-down version of the T. Rice pro, and the flex is tailored for lighter riders. In other words, it's a full-on pro level deck, for little guys who are still making their mark.
Just like its older brother, the T. Ripper runs on Lib's C2 BTX rocker profile. Basically, that means that there's rocker between the bindings, while the tip and tail have camber built in. What that means for you is all the control of camber, with a fun rockered feel. It gets better with Magne-Traction edges, which place seven strategic bumps along the edges. The bumps are bigger between the feet, which concentrates most of the grip there for a ride feeling that's more like a skateboard and less like standing on Grandpa's skis. Plus it's a true twin, for unrestricted switch shredding.
The H Pop core uses fast growing, sustainably harvested wood for a board that's light and snappy. Power Transfer internal sidewalls crank up the durability, and they're buffered by UHMW external sidewalls for impact resistance. The Teflon infused TNT base holds up to jibbing and runs fast even when it doesn't get waxed a whole lot. Best of all, you can rest easy knowing that this snowboard was built with eco-friendly materials by snowboarders with jobs.

I ride the dad version of this board and I love it! Looking at getting this for my son. The C2 BTX camber profile helps keep it loose and forgiving but still rips and is stable when you push it hard. I can also ride pow with a centered stance and still get super good float.

Is this board great for park and if not...
Is this board great for park and if not powder?
This board was designed with park and hard pack in mind. The combination of magne-traction and the hybrid rocker will keep you in control and give you the right amount of play to really enjoy leaving the ground. Now if you are looking to take this into the park to ride rails, talk to your local shop to de-tune the edges you you can glide a little easier. As far as this being a powder board, its not going to be your best option.
i rode this board in deep powder last year and killed it!! I am 5'2'' 110 lbs so it fits. I also took it in the park and did fine as well (a pickle will be much better in the park though). All in all good all mountain didnt need to adjust bindings nor lean back much. Getting a second one this year
