Lib Tech Travis Rice Orca 2021 Snowboard

£579.00

Not your gutless fish. Travis has juiced up this Jackson Hole resort slasher into an apex all terrain tech shred predator. A long floaty nose combined with a powerful poppy contact maximizing short radius “Whale Tail Technology”. A tight 7m trench gougin sidecut. Wide enough to allow you to really put it on a hardpack rail with no toe drag and float pillows like a dream but still narrow enough to be your daily driver all season long.

Odyssey’s opinion: One of the most eye-catching and sought-after boards of the last few years, the Lib Tech Travis Rice Orca doesn’t disappoint. Unusually for a pro model, this is a snowboard that us mere mortals can enjoy, thanks to it’s forgiving, floaty profile. I’ve only ridden this on piste (skunked on fresh snow last season) and I can definitely say it carves like a dream, but you just know it’s powder where the Orca really comes alive.

Description

Not your gutless fish. Travis has juiced up this Jackson Hole resort slasher into an apex all terrain tech shred predator. A long floaty nose combined with a powerful poppy contact maximizing short radius “Whale Tail Technology”. A tight 7m trench gougin sidecut. Wide enough to allow you to really put it on a hardpack rail with no toe drag and float pillows like a dream but still narrow enough to be your daily driver all season long. Take it to AK, drop BC pillow stacks or blow minds at the home resort all season. A mammal to eat all fish. TR. Award winning!

VOLUME SHIFTED, RIDE THIS BOARD 3-6 CM SHORTER THAN YOUR NORMAL BOARD.

Travis and Mervin will be donating a portion of the sale of each Orca snowboard to the www.orcaconservancy.org in support of their efforts to prevent the extinction of the Salish Sea’s Southern Resident Killer Whales. #betheirvoice

BOARD ART BY: Mike Parillo (@mikeparillo)
Longtime Lib Tech ripper and amazing artist Mike Parillo and Travis worked together on this years “nature x science” inspired Travis Rice collection and have created what feels like the most amazing snowboard line up ever. Mike’s realistic overhead interpretation of the oceans apex predator Orca backs up the first two iconic graphics with a huge splash. This years base eye patch markings are inspired by our local resident Orca K-37 aka “Rainshadow”. This one hits close to home with K-37 being son of K-12 aka “Sequim” our Mervin MFG hometown.
