Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard (Men's)

Product Details

Style: SKATE BANANA 12

The Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard is one banana that you'll want to slide on because Lib Tech smartly puts the rider's pressure where it can best be leveraged. Banana Rocker allows the Skate Banana BTX Snowboard to be floaty in the powder, while flatish/mild cambered zones and scalloped Magne-Traction give you the pop in the park and grip on the groomers that you're looking for. Lib Tech engineered this snowboard with Power Transfer internal Sidewalls to give it the extra control and pop you need to boost off lips, and the H-Pop Wood Alloy Core makes it lightweight and super responsive. Every year the Skate Banana tops riders' wish lists, probably because it truly blends all of our favorite things.

Q:
"Hi! I'm thinking about buying the skate banana, or maybe another board. I'm 5'4, 117 pounds (male) my shoe size is 7.5. I'm a beginner rider but I'm a quick learner and I plan on riding frequently. What size snowboard would you recommend? I want something I can use in the park and on the mountain. Oh, and I don't think I'm growing any taller :) Thanks you"

A:
"I would recommend a size 144 or 146. If you get a board that is too big for you, then you will not be able to maneuver it correctly. You should check out the Forum Recon Snowboard. This board would work perfectly for you!"

Question by enden on 3/18/2012 - 1:57 pm
A:
"All boot sizes 10+ are recommended to use a wide board. This will prevent toe drag and give you more control of your board. This is only recommended so you can stray from the herd of course and do what feels best for you!"

Question by Rider on 3/18/2012 - 7:43 pm
A:
"Your average size is about a 157. That could vary depending on the type of terrain you ride on and your skill level. As for the binding, every vendor has different sizing rules for their merchandise. In Burton, you would be a size Large. Flow, you would be an XLarge. And Forum you would be a Large. I would recommend checking out the Burton Mission Snowboard Binding to go with this board!"

Question by jay_23_34 on 6/26/2012 - 8:21 am
A:
"I would go for a 160 or higher for your height. Depending on your bindings you may want to consider the Lib Tech Skate Banana WIDE. For a large binging this will allow a better ride where you wont catch a toe."
