The TRS is back, and it's still a total ripper.
The Total Ripper Series has been a trusty staple of seasoned shredders worldwide for as long as we can remember, so it's not exactly a surprise that the new Lib Tech TRS XC2 BTX snowboard takes the same winning formula, and makes it even more potent. Like previous versions, it's stiff enough for charging and soft enough for jibbing, and the twin shape is catered to all mountain freestyle destruction. The difference is the all new XC2 profile, which puts more pressure on the tip and tail for even more response. These guys aren't joking around, this board will totally rip everything in your path. Don't say we didn't warn you.
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 sacrificing precisely 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.

Switch Couloir Laps Anyone?
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had 75 days on my 2013/2014 trs 162 (as of 2/28/14). I was using a full rocker T. Rice and a full camber T. Rice before i bought this beast, and it was a toss up between this quiver killer, and the la nina pow board. This board is quite a bit softer than the t rice, or any of my other boards (forum destroyer, t-rice boards) and it took a little getting used to at first. I've had a ball on this thing! It's just soft enough to get good press maneuvers, and just stiff enough to rip the couloir on "chalky" slick days. The base on this guy is definitely thirstier than my forum. I keep up with/pass skiers on cat tracks with ease. The twin shape is awesome for park laps and switch riding. You can also set the stance back on it for a little more "la nina" like ride. I really just want another one even bigger..
Great Overall Board!!

Coming from an 07 Custom X to this board, I was a little hesitant from going from a full camber ride to a hybrid.
The Custom X is significantly stiffer and rides noticeably better through the choppy snow. I am also WAY more comfortable with my Custom X on cat walks as it seems to go straighter and faster with less effort. And being that the Custom X is an all camber board, the response from edge to edge is a tad bit quicker. That is about where the advantages of the Custom X ends. (Granted they are pretty significant advantages)
I bought the TRS mainly because I had been riding for 8 years and finally decided that I want to learn how to ride switch. This board is a true twin and is very forgiving (especially when compared to my Custom X). This bodes well for those who are not as technical of riders, as I am when riding switch. There were times where I just knew that I was going to eat it really hard... but nothing happened, and I carried on with my riding. Being able to ride switch was a breeze and extremely rewarding.
Where this board really shines for me is the magnatraction. I was blown away at the amount of grip I had going down icy blacks. I could bomb down those eerie shadowy steeps with more confidence than ever with this board! The grip on this board is out of control! Some people complained about it being too grippy to the point of needing to detune the board, however I did not have such an issue.
The base of the board is silky smooth and fast. While you can charge pretty hard on any flats and groomers, when the snow gets a little bumpy I do start to wish I was on my Custom X as the TRS is a little unstable on bumps.
Overall, I am completely satisfied with this board and recommend anybody buy it!!!!
BUY THIS BOARD!
I cannot tell you how much fun this stick is to ride, its not easy but woooooooo boy this this can do anything! if youre looking for a board that can charge but also a board you can jib with ease this is the board...The "mustache" shape really is tricky and takes so getting used to but once you do...catching an edge is pretty difficult! I say try it or just buy it...pronto.

I am 5'9" and 170 pounds what would be a good size TSR for me? I ride a 150 Gnu Pickle right now which is second hand. I dont ride parks or do any jibs. Just like riding and need more stability during higher speeds. thanks!
This is going to be a big step up for you but it sounds like it has been a long time coming. I would recommend going all the way up to a 157cm in the Lib Tech TRS if you don't plan on hitting the park at all. That length is going to give you more stability at high speed, better float when you divert of into the side country, and better control in general. It may take some getting used to and you will lose just a little in the your turning radius, but you will feel the dividends in your overall riding pretty quickly.

I am 5'7" and 145 lbs. I am coming from a 2007 156cm Burton Custom X and totally love it but want a more playful board. However I don't plan on spending any time in the park ever. Not sure if I should go for 154cm or 157cm. (Currently have both in my cart). What should I do!?!?
Based on your weight your in the range for a 155-158 cm. If you're not looking at riding in the park at all, I'd opt for the 157cm board for you. It will provide you with better all around on the mountain. If you were a park junky, I'd recommend the 154 cm for you.

coming from a traditionally cambered board to a modern "hybrid" camber like the Libs you can size down from your normal size and still have float in pow while maintaining that agility and playfulness you get from a shorter board. To be honest, you'll love either size. But the larger one will have more versatility that a short board won't provide. It will be a huge step up from your burton.

Just checking. I ride a size 11.5-12 Nike boot. Wondering if the 162-164 size TRS is more of a mid-wide to wide-enough for a bigger booted rider.

Hi! should i buy 154 or 157 cm? my previous board k2 raygun was 156, it's pretty good for me, but it is very unstable on speed, so i decided to buy this one
my weight is 135 lb and my height is 5'11
Hey Andrey, solid choice for a board. Based of the info you provided I would go with a size 157 for a solid all mountain board. Its something that is going to be responsive and stable at speeds. Hit us up on chat or call us if you need anything else.
Hello! Switching from the K2 raygun to the TRS XC2 BTX will give you more stability no matter if you choose the 154 or 157. This is because you are going from a rocker board to hybred board, with rocker between the feet and lengthened camber under the feet. With your weight you can comfortably ride the 154 or the 157. If you are looking to ride park, rails, and looking for a nimble board, go with the 154. If you are more concerned about about free-riding, going fast, and getting the most out of your turns, go with the 157.
hey Andrey, checked out some sizing charts and for your weight the maximum recommendation is a 152, but for your height it's a 155 minimum. If I were you I would go with a 154, pretty important to factor both of those things in.
