Lib Tech Travis Rice: Best Men’s Snowboards
The Lib Tech Travis Rice is a great do-it-all snowboard. It is the signature snowboard for Travis Rice (as you probably guessed). He rides everywhere and kills it and so this this snowboard. It’s an all-mountain snowboard that is best for intermediate+ riders who want to charge the whole mountain–carving, half-pipe, jumping and powder-days.
I haven’t had a chance to ride this snowboard, but it is well reviewed and was even selected by Shayboarder.com as her top pick for 2012.
Who should buy this snowboard? I put the Lib Tech Travis Rice in the same category as the Burton Custom X and Never Summer Heritage. It is for more skilled riders who want to charge everywhere on the mountain. If you want more rails and butters out of your lift ticket, you would better off with a more freestyle-focused snowboard. If you are a beginner, you may like a more mellow snowboard: Best Beginner Snowboards
What size snowboard to buy?
Select the snowboard size based on your weight according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. If you are between sizes, going with the smaller size can be easier to learn on. Snowboarders can often ride more than one size of the same snowboard.
