Travis Rice's legacy of next level riding, projects and vision consistently pours out into his collection of Lib Tech dream boards. Travis and our experiMENTAL engineers have spent well over a decade creating, testing, tinkering, ripping and dreaming into this current line. From his staple rip-it-all power freestyle T.Rice Pro and T.Ripper to the explosive high performance Orca and Apex Orca to his Natural Selection Tour winning Golden Orca and the boundary pushing Orca Split; Travis ideates, rides, tweaks, tests and re-tests each and every one before putting on his stamp of approval. Enjoy the Lib Tech Travis Rice dream board collection!
Travis’ favorite Jackson Hole designed / globally tested shape in lightweight, long lasting, environmentally friendly, powerful HP construction. The T.Rice Pro HP is a versatile stick that will allow you to push your limits anywhere on the mountain and is still playful enough to be your daily driver. The perfect resort snowboard from the world’s best snowboarder.
A long floaty nose combined with a powerful poppy contact maximizing short radius “Whale Tail Technology”. A tight 7m trench gouging sidecut. Wide enough to allow you to really put it on a hardpack rail with no toe drag and float pillows like a dream but still narrow enough to be your daily driver all season long. Take it to AK, drop BC pillow stacks or blow minds at the home resort all season. A mammal to eat all fish. Award winning!
Travis and Mervin will be donating a portion of the sale of each Orca snowboard to the www.orcaconservancy.org in support of their efforts to prevent the extinction of the Salish Sea’s Southern Resident Killer Whales. #betheirvoice
DREAM DIRECTIONAL SHAPE AND CONTOUR FOR WHAT TRAVIS CALLS FUN
Natural Selection winning power predator in both directions. Travis took his Orca learnings and merged them with his elite high performance snowboard world freestyle tour dreams to come up with this supreme Orca freestyle evolution. The long floaty Orca nose loves pow. A directional C2 contour rips resort, trenches hardpack carves and blasts off mountainous side hits. A brand new long floaty switch friendly power kink tail rides short powerful and poppy on hardpack but floats like a dream through switch freestyle takeoffs and landings. The beloved Orca merges with magical T. Rice Pro and manifests a golden power beast.
