Description: Lib Tech T.Rice Climax Snowboard

Unless you have lived under a rock for the last decade, you are familiar with Travis Rice. From X-Games gold medals, Supernatural Champion, to making mind melting movies like "The Fourth Phase" and "The Art Of Flight," you know this guy needs to be riding a board that can withstand a lot of abuse. The T.Rice Climax from Lib Tech offers a full carbon construction and all-terrain versatility, which lets you experiment in the deep pow as well. Lib Tech's C2x camber construction adds a slight reverse camber zone in between the riders stance and adds elliptical camber zones from the edge of feet to the contact points, for a lifted ride with solid pop and edge hold. Lib also adds a special edge called Magne-Traction® which adds multiple contact points throughout the length of the running edge, with stronger edge hold on hardpack and icy terrain. Finished with a true twin shape and a sintered base for a fast ride, as long as you keep up with waxing and maintenance. This all-terrain monster wants to be ridden. Are you up for the ride?

163 Climax
I just got a 163 Climax (I'm 6'1" 190lbs Size 11 boot), and today I took it for my first day of the season. Coming from a 162W Banana Magic (the last BTX! model), I was a little nervous that I'd find the board too stiff or difficult to turn. I was, however, pleasantly surprised by how similar it was to the Banana Magic with regards to turn initiation and compliance.

Where this board differs is in a few categories. First and foremost, it is extremely light. I didn't think a pound or two would make much difference, but it was instantly noticeable. There is just no weight to move around. Second, it is much faster than the Banana Magic. I never had a problem straight lining the Banana Magic, but this is easier to stay flat and faster when it is flat. It has a lot more pop than the Banana Magic as well. Ollies weren't much different, but popping off any bump or jump felt smoother and more powerful than what I'd experienced with the Banana Magic.

It's very clearly not a park board. Riding switch wasn't hard, but it also wasn't as effortless as a true twin. Though, having rocker in the middle, it is simple enough to do nose and tail presses. Still, I'll keep the Banana Magic for days that are more park heavy.

I didn't get a chance to ride in any deep snow. The Sierras are a little dry right now, but there is a bit of a set back and the tail is notched, so I'm guessing it will do well in the deep stuff.

Overall, it's a great board, and it's definitely not the handful that has been described in other reviews that I've read. It felt good at every point and in every situation on the mountain, and I never found myself wishing I was riding anything else.

got a 155 Climax (I'm 5'10" 170lbs Size 10 boot), and I took it for 2 seasons. Coming from a 153 TRS, The Climax actually made it easier to carve than the TRS. Great turn initiation. Got to pair the Climax with the stiffest bindings out there. Don’t use bindings less than a 9 out of 10 on the stiffness rating.

It is extremely light. There is just no weight to move around. On flats, I’m speeding by both boarders and skiers.

Buttering is not as effortless as the TRS.

The Climax floats in deep snow. There is a bit of a set back and the tail is notched.

Climax is an awesome board, and it's definitely not the handful that has been described in other reviews (written and video blogs) that I've read and watched; those reviewers probably didn’t pair the Climax up with the stiffest bindings. Like the previous review said, the Climax felt good at every point and in every situation on the mountain, and I never found myself wishing I was riding anything else. Next season I’m going for a longer Climax because speed is synonymous with this board. and there’s is so little spin weight, I’m going to size up from a 155.
