LibTech T.Rice Pro Horsepower C2-BTX Snowboard (Men's)
Style: TRICEPROHRSWPR 13
The LibTech T.Rice Pro Horsepower Menâ€™s Snowboard has been used and tested by none other than Travis Rice himself. Landing close-to-impossible tricks and defying logic is T. Riceâ€™s game, and this snowboard helps him continue to stomp impossible landings. The Horsepower version is lighter than the T.Rice Pro by about a pound, and reinforced with basalt volcanic fiber to replace the heavier fiberglass traditionally used. The eco-friendly Bio-Bean sparkle top sheet displays an unworldly graphic inspired by Travis and created by Mike Parillo and Carl Smith. Serrated edges create seven contact points on each edge to give you great edge hold in icy, hardpack conditions.

"This board is great for all types of riding. Hardpack, park, pipe, pow, rails, and even ice, this board does it all. The 161.5 is a pow-specific pointy shape and the 153 and 157 have a park/jib-specific blunt shape. The graphics do change by size. For a size 11 boot, you really should be looking at a wide board."

"I have this board but last season's. It is a mid-wide so you probably won't have a problem with 11's unless you stand in the middle with your toes perpendicular. I Haven't ridden it yet but I bought the 157 blunt and I have size 11.5 burton ion boots and gnu step in binding. The Bindings and boots are very slim and my stance is maxed out because I'm a tall guy and after doing some lean tests, I don't see there being any problems with my toes overhanging. But I do have my stance maxed and with moderate freestyle stance. I'm an eastcoast rider and haven't seen much powder in my day so I don't think it is unnecessary to have a powder board. I had a 161.5 GNU rider's choice wide and it was fun but the effective edge was was only 1cm larger than this. So I presume this board is just all board and no fat. "
