The TRS you know and love, for smaller feet.
It's not exactly a secret that the Total Ripper Series is the go-to ride for a ton of hard-charging shredders the world over, and this year the Lib Tech TRS XC2 BTX narrow snowboard is even more finely tuned for the smaller-footed total rippers among us. Like years past, it retains its versatile medium flex and freestyle oriented twin shape. The big news is the addition of Lib's new XC2 profile, which blends rocker between the most aggressive camber in Lib's lineup underneath the feet, for precision carving and solid landings. After all, there's times when sticking your line is critical, and washing out just isn't an option.
The TRS is built on Lib's brand new XC2 BTX profile. In other words, there's a short, aggressive rocker between the feet, coupled with the most aggressive camber in Lib's lineup at the tip and tail. What that means for you is plenty of float, and more importantly, insane amounts of edgehold on exposed lines, icy pipe walls and packed out landings. It gets even 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 a lot like a skateboard. The twin shape means you sacrifice nothing whether you're riding switch or regular.
The Columbian Gold core uses 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 extruded base holds up to jibbing, and runs super fast, even when you forget to wax it for a day or two. Best of all, you can rest easy knowing that your snowboard was built with eco-friendly materials by snowboarders with jobs.

hi, do you have another size? I`m really need 148 sm. thanks
It looks like at this time we are sold down to only the 154 and I wouldn't expect to see a restock until the new season comes out in a couple months.

hi, what's the biggest boot size you would recommend for this board please? I'm a US size 9, and 145 lbs. I was thinking about the 151 size.
Unless you have a super narrow stance with a 0 degree binding setup (which would be ridiculous) you should really be fine with a size 9 boot. You could probably get away with a size 9.5 with a wide enough stance.
Awesome all mountain shredder!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
As a smaller dude, having a little narrower board for ripping groomers around the mountain is awesome. Real quick edge to edge, so that makes for snappy, fun turns- the root of fun snowboarding! Not so stiff that it was uncomfortable, but still stiff enough to hold its own at high speeds. Didn't take it through the wringer in the park, as the board I rode still had some pretty sharp edges, but the park riding still felt good- it is a little better suited for hitting jumps than simply jibbing around the park, but it's well rounded enough that you shouldn't have any problem having fun on it in the park. Bottom line- narrow board makes for a fun one, as long as you'll fit it well!
I wear size 8.5 Nike's, weigh about 140 lbs. and I'm 5'10"- I rode a 151 in this board.
Could the 148 hold a size 9 boot
Could the 148 hold a size 9 boot
A mens size 9 is about 26 cm footsize, and the 48 is about 24 cm at the waist. Taking into consideration your stance width, and angle and the actual length of your boots it is going to be pretty close. Personally I would just suggest not going with the narrow option if you are looking at the 48.

IS this pow oriented
IS this pow oriented
I think this is an OK board if you are going all mountain in-bounds and you find some nice runs with powder sections, but if you are looking for a board to add to your quiver to pull out on the deep pow days then this is not the board you are going to want. First off, rule number one for powder is surface area, this board being narrow just doesn't have that surface area you are going to want for float (especially if you are still looking at that 48 cm you asked about in your other question) second, stiffness is going to play a huge factor. You really don't want a board thats going to fold in the pillows, rather you want a stiff board thats going to work with you rather than against you. Third, the rocker is just in the wrong spot on this board. Rocker between the feet is great for a park board but useless in powder. If you are going to have rocker on a pow board then you want it tip and tail.
I guess what I am trying to say is, no this board is not oriented towards gnar gnar pow pow.
I rode a Travis Rice for the last two...
I rode a Travis Rice for the last two season and was wondering if i would notice a difference in speed since this TRS only has an extruded base compared to the T.Rice being sintered which is super fast and eats wax up for breakfast every morning before a ride
Yes, they are.
