Wide enough to allow you to really put it on a hardpack rail with no toe drag and float pillows like a dream, the Lib Tech T. Rice Orca snowboard is still narrow enough to be your daily driver.

  • Features

    • "Whale Tail Technology" combines a long floaty nose with a powerful and poppy, contact-maximizing short radius
    • C2X Directional hybrid profile rips everything, including pow, thanks to a shortened rocker in the middle and lengthened cambers on either side
    • Tight, 7 m trench-gouging sidecut
    • Magne-Traction® serrated steak knife technology features strategically located edge serrations for edge hold and control in a variety of conditions
    • Horsepower (HP) construction is lightweight, long-lasting and powerful
    • Eco-sublimated bio beans topsheet uses a plant oil–based top material that's rugged and scratch-resistant; eco sublimation is a water-based graphic process

    • Birch internal sidewalls; UHMW sintered sidewalls; UHMW tip/tail impact deflection
    • Volume shifted—Lib Tech advises riding this board 3–6 cm shorter than your normal board
    • Professional snowboarder Travis Rice juiced up this board from a resort slasher to an all-terrain freeride tech shredder
    • Board art by Andrew Schoultz
    • Snowboard deck and base colors may vary from online photo
