Size chart for Lib Tech - Men Freestyle Snowboards

The revolutionary all-terrain snowboard that changed the world

The award-winning Skate Banana rips everything, it is easy to ride, easy to turn, catch-free and forgiving, floats in powder and is unreal for jibbing and freestyle. The Skate Banana is a fantastic all-terrain freestyle board and will never grow old in your quiver.

Riding Style
The Skate Banana is a freestyle board that performs everywhere. Whether you are beginner or expert, every rider has fun with this snowboard.

Shape
The perfectly symmetrical True Twin shape offers a balanced ride that’s equally versatile when ridden regular or switch. The Magne-Traction® serrated edges give great edge hold all over the mountain, especially on hard pack and ice.

Profile
The Original Banana profile comes with a rocker between your feet combined with a flat to mild camber under the feet. Easy riding and turning, great jibbing and epic float in pow with full contact and control in all conditions. 

Flex
The soft-medium flex of this board provides you with a playful board that inspires jibbing and freestyle moves on every possible obstacle. While giving you the pop you need to get on top of everything.

Construction
The Original Power Construction OP is a very lightweight, environmentally nice and strong construction design of Lib Tech. The core consists of a strong Aspen and Paulownia, giving you a strong and light core with a crisp pop. Bi-ax and tri-ax fibreglass surrounds the core and adds the needed stiffness and durability. The TnT Base features a fast and low maintenance dual layered fluoro base material. Wax it or maybe skip a day. Birch Internal Sidewalls are placed along the sidewall of your board to add board control to the sandwich construction. Stronger, more pop, and more control. The UHMW Sintered Sidewalls are a Lib Tech innovation. Twice as sintered as any other sidewall. Tough, fast, hard, waterproof, handsome and light. NO TOXIC ABS! Due to the edges, which do not go throughout at tip and tail, these areas are protected by a UHMW Tip/Tail Impact Deflection system to avoid damage. Finally, the Flower Textured Eco Sublimated  Poly Topsheet features a tough and Eco-sublimated layer to complete the construction.
