Description: Lib Tech Skate Banana Wide Snowboard

The Lib Tech Skate Banana Wide Snowboard is a true do it all beast. It absolutely shreds powder, rails, hard pack and everything else you might encounter. The skate banana is a legend for a reason. Magne-Traction's strategic serrations provide unreal edge hold and control in all conditions. With rocker just where you need it, you get phenomenal performance in both the park and the pow.

My Review
IM 6'4 195 lbs and I bought the 162W. I use Union Atlas bindings with Nike Vapen boots. This board is an AMAZING park board. I also have a Lib Tech Darker Series which is a stiffer all mountain board and after riding that one, I can say the skate banana is super playful, easy to ride switch, never catches edges, and you can butter spin until you pass out from dizziness. Very fun to press out with the flex. Although its not as fast as my darker series, it moves very well and will keep up with everyone on the mountain if you know what you're doing. If you're one of th ose average riders who doesnt know if you'll like park, its still a great all arpund board no matter what you're into whether it be powder or just cruising. The one thing I can say this board lacks for those all mountain riders is a good edge hold. Dont think you're going to throw any low soul turns with this board. I mean, it wouldnt be a park board if it didnt have the washy feel. The magne traction does help with the edge hold if you can get up on edge but it will never compare to the edge hold on the darker series.

Amazingly amazing
This is my dream board. Perfect fit and size for me (6'3" 165lbs). The edges on this board cut through some tough stuff and provide great wide carves that you can rally sink your weight into. I love it!!!

I am looking for the best all mountain freestyle board that I can shed the park with butter, spin, and press all over the mountain; will grip down on hard pack and ice; as well as float through pow. What would you recommend between the skate banana, burton super hero, or burton process Flying V?
Ryan A on Mar 10, 2014
Best Answer: The skate banana is going to fit all of those. It is super flexy and floats really well on powder. You will love it.

I'm 5'8 and 130lbs. What size would be best for me?
Brett P on Nov 20, 2014
Best Answer: I would say a 152 would work or maybe one size smaller if you plan on riding mostly park. If you're going to ride outside of the park more often than not than I would say either a 155 or 157. But it really comes down to personal preference. I'm 6ft 200lbs and I ride a 162 outside the park and a 156 in the park.

I am 5'5" and weigh 155 lbs. What size board do you recommend? Thank you!
SurferVibes on Dec 17, 2014
Best Answer: I personally wouldn't go bigger than a 145 based on your size but that is entirely dependant on what type of riding you intend on doing the most of. For my self I'm 5'11" and right at 200lbs. I ride a 156 which let's me hit the entire mountain from groomers, the park, or some deep powder. If your mainly on groomers and going to the park you can get away with a shorter board

Edit* Im 5'8 135lbs with a size 11 boot what size would be best?
Brett P on Nov 20, 2014
Best Answer: I'm 6'0" 185 and I was told a 156 was the best length for me, it went to about under my chin so I'd say to use that as a guide unless you're still young. Try whatever feels comfortable when you ride.

I have been riding for 15 years, what determines and entry level board and a advanced level board... I ride all terrain, but do not frequent the park as mush as I used to. I wear a 13 boot and was checking out the 159W or the 162 W. Any other recommendations? I was just turned off by the recommended use part.

Hello Stephen,

The snowboard industry has set a basic standard of a board's suggested use mainly categorized by a board's overall flex/feel rating. Softer boards are generally suggested to be used by novice riders, medium flexing boards by intermediates, and stiff boards by advanced level riders. With that being said there is much more that can attribute to a suggestion like, profile shape (camber, rocker, flat, hybrid), fiberglass, additional laminates, and base material to mention a few. In addition to that is the terrain type; backcountry, powder, park, pipe, trees ect...

I believe that a board should be picked by the rider's personal preference. Can an advance rider ride a softer board with a rocker shape? Absolutely. Can a novice rider use a stiff board with traditional camber? Sure, but it may not be as easy to learn on. The most important thing to consider is choosing a board that is going to ride the way you want it to in the conditions/terrain that you want to ride.

As an advanced level rider I could ride a soft board with a rocker shape to freeride, but it wouldn't be as stable as I would like at high speeds, that's why I choose to ride stiff camber boards when I cruise. When making park laps I like to ride a soft/medium flexing board because it's easier to press on rails.

Being that you have size 13 boots, I'd definitely suggested getting a "wide" board, or at least a board that has a waist width wider that 25.8cm.

Choosing the length of a snowboard, as you may well know, should be determined mostly by the riders weight. Generally 159cm boards have a weight range between 150-190 lbs., whereas 162cm boards have a weight range between 160-200 lbs. Pick the size that puts your weight closest in the the middle of the range.

For a rider that weighs 230 would the 162W be a good choice?

Im 5'11 147 and wear a size 12 boot I was just wondering if this would be a good board for me? What size would you recommend for me?
Scooter on Dec 15, 2014
Best Answer: Jake,
First, these are pretty cool boards... and good choice with the Wide version. Lib Tech suggests that either the 156 or 162 would be ok for your weight and height. A lot of that is personal preference of course... but unless you are spending the day in the park, I would look at the longer size.

I'm 5'10 190 lbs and wear size 11 boots should I get a wide or regular width skate banana and which length?
jamal C on Dec 1, 2014
Best Answer: Jamal,

If you have a size 11 boot going with a wide board is your best bet, luckily the Lib Tech Skate Banana is wide. Since you are around 190lbs you can ride this board anywhere between 159 to 163.
Seeing as how this board comes in a 153, 156, 159, and 163 id say shoot for the 159 for the best control and overall feel of the board. Happy shreddin'.

I am 5'10'', weigh 156 pounds and intend to wear size 10 boots. Do you folks think I should go for a 156 or a 156W Skate Banana?
A shopper on Nov 9, 2014
Best Answer: Hi,
Go for the regular width 156 Skate Banana with size 10 boots. The wide is made for size 12 boots and larger.

Hi,
I am looking at get either a Carbon Credit 2015 or Skate Banana 2014.
I am 5'10 weigh 142-145 lbs. Wear a size 11.5 Nitro Team boots. Am at beginner level and this will be my 1st board. Where I am there is more of slush/ice and if I am lucky some powder. Not the type you get in the northern hemisphere. Plan on mostly hitting the slopes.
Looking at the web, I may need to go on the wider size 153W if going short or maybe something like a 156 or 156W if going longer. Can you plz suggest a correct size?
A shopper on Oct 7, 2014
Best Answer: I would recommend the 153 wide Lib Tech Skate Banana for you.

im 6'1 and 150 pounds. i know that i need a wide board but im not sure about the length. any suggestions?
A shopper on Feb 8, 2014
Best Answer: My guess is you're still growing. I wouldn't go smaller than a 152, or higher than a 158. Depends on what kind of riding you do. A 155-56 would be ideal IMO. Check out the sizing charts. Add a little for carving, subtract a little for freestyle. Personal preference comes into play. Take into account where and how you ride.
