Lib Tech Skate Banana

The Lib Tech Skate Banana was designed to be the ultimate freestyle snowboard. It was designed with a reverse camber. This means that instead of the tip and tail touching the ground when the board lays flat, the board look more like a banana, with the tip and tail up in the air while sitting on the ground - Lib Tech calls this Banana Technology. While this sounds very strange, this board is receiving rave reviews. It has already won a Transworld Snowboarding Good Wood Award for 2009.

Snowboarders generally love the Lib Tech Skate Banana. People report it floats in powder much like the Burton Fish. It also has a very low spin weight making it great on boxes and rails. Magnetraction technology gives it excellent edge hold on both ice and hard pack. Groomers are supposed to also ride very well, there is a lot lower chance of catching an edge with the reverse camber. The one complaint we have heard is that the board can get a little sketchy when landing a big jump. The Lib Tech Skate Banana comes in sizes 148, 151, 152, 156 and 159.

    [...] very quickly. The Bent Metal Biscuit is a great fit with many Mervin snowboards, such as the Lib Tech Skate Banana (check out the bright yellow model). The Biscuit ++ model will run you about $30 more than the base [...]

      last winter, i grabbed my son’s SB and only had to ride it 200′ (really, that was all) to know this was the best board i’ve ever had. have been riding since ’95. works well in all conditions. holds an edge and turns easier than anything i’ve had (e.g Burton T6, Arbor Element, etc.)

      I have owned one of these since 2009 and have been snowboarding since 1986. I now question weather I was ever really snowboarding before this board. This is a board that is designed to turn for a person going sideways down the mountain with two points of contact(snowboard). Camber, as I now realize is for someone going down the mountain with one point of contact at the top like a leaf spring(skiing). I will never go back to camber.

      great bord for rails and jibbing but when it comes to those big booters washing out is always in the equation so in all its not the greatest board i would get a crispywhip board instead

      This board is what you make of it, i ve been riding for about 12 years and have went through dozens of boards. This board is without a doubt the best street park board around , feels like air under you and has better rail control then any board out there, but if your just as much into the big air as you are the street tricks there are better boards out there 4 u seeing as this board seems to be hard to stick landings that include big air and high speeds.. enjoy

      I had the chance to use a few boards in a demo day and this really stood out for my type of boarding. Super fun, very forgiving and I loved it so much, I bought one a few days later. Love it!!!

      It handled really well for a park board on the slopes and it was amazing on the rails.
      Jumping on it was great too.
      Lots of fun to ride
