"Banana" 11/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (4) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  easy to use, loose, ride it anywhere
  • Cons:  easy to wash out tail,

Experience:   I'v ridden this board now for 2 seasons, in both icy conditions and powder. I found it probably rides best in icier conditions or just fluffy snow rather than full on powder (could be my inexperience with the pow). A great board if you're into surfing - can turn on a dime and great to throw some snow around with. Only downside is it's sometimes overly loose, if throwing big turns at speed it easily spins out - meaning you're going to end up on your arse. Also it doesn't seem to have as much pop as other boards (could be me though).

"Great board!" 11/10/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  magne, butterability, complete control
  • Cons:  noodly off big jumps,

Experience:   I've owned the skate banana now for 2 seasons, 09/10 model. I loved every moment riding my sb.. it's very durable and great for jibing and buttering around. If you want a great all around ride,(not looking to get too serious in the park) then this board is for you. Magnetraction should be default on every snow board in imo.

"Fun Deck" 10/29/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Great Flex (obviously), Fun to ride,
  • Cons:  feels unstable at higher speeds,

Experience:   I got this board at the end of last season, and it was the first reverse camber board that i had ever ridden. I was blown away but the ease at which you can ride this thing switch. When riding, you never feel like you are going to catch and edge--it feels almost impossible. The amount of confidence that gives you to ride switch is amazing. With 8 days on this board, i would say my switch riding improved 10 fold. It is also fun to butter, and pop off of little things as it is very playful. I would definitely recommend joining the RC revolution, if you have not done so already. I'll probably check out one of lib's c2 boards this year for combarison between this and the original BTX. if you are looking for something fun, playful, and easy to ride, right now, it doesnt feel like this could get much better.

"This board has really good strong points" 11/25/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  good pop, magna-traction,

Experience:   I rode this 159 in some fresh powder the first time that I used it, and it took a little getting used to because my old board, a 154 burton custom, is lighter and easier to maneuver. So i tried spinning 180s in the air, and it took some time to get used to the weight but eventually it worked out and I got used to it. Then I used it a few days later on some ice/slush. WOW. this board stays flat never slips, and is awesome for these conditions. Magnetraction is awesome for this but can be harder to maneuver if youre going for a bigger all mountain board. Overall, this is a great stick.

"Skate Banana 2010" 11/16/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Pros:  Flexible, Magne-Traction, Reverse Camber
  • Cons:  Flexible,

Experience:   The flex makes it great for tricks, however since it is softer, it may be a bit harsh on the legs if going too fast. It's not so much that it's unstable at high speeds, it's more your legs don't take the vibrations as well due to a softer board. I've tried the LibTech Skate Banana and tried the LibTech McKink as well as several other boards, and Magne-Traction & Reverse Camber definitely helps beginners so they don't catch edge as easily.

"2011 Skate Banana" 11/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Pros:  Buttering, Hard Ice pack, Pow, ,
  • Cons:  Flex not soft enough,

Experience:   The skate naner is one of the best snowboards I have ever riden. It makes everything about Snowboarding that much easier. The magnatraction is one of the best inventions ever and ive never lost an edge. The raised egdes make sure that you never catch edge. Just overall a perfect board for anyone looking to improve there fundementals and confidence.To hard to flex this board tho feel like im going to pull a muscle lol

"Love it" 11/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Fun/Great in park, Good grip on icy days, Ride anywhere
  • Cons:  If at very high speed, a tiny bit unstable,

Experience:   This is the best board i have ever owned. First day i rode it, i didnt realize how the magna worked till i turned on an icy patch and still caught pretty well. I love the reverse camber on this board, it is great for boxes and rails and has a great feel. Nice having lift from the snow. I also liked the flex. It is flexy, but its not a noodle which i liked. My friend owns a nitro which is much flexier, i tried it and i much rather this in park even tho its less flexy. It definetly gives enough flex to have fun, but is stiff enough to be able to ride anywhere. Although it is a bit unstable at very high speeds, if u spend the day in the park like me u wont have any trouble. And its not like every time you go fast it does it. Its just pretty much when ur tucking down a double black is the only times ive felt a bit unstable. Was sketchy cuz i wobbled a bit, and imediately thought, hey i could easily die if i fall right now at this speed. But it was kinda fun to be honest feeling a bit wobbly going so fast as nuts as i sound. But maybe i get a bit more speed with mine cuz im smaller(only about 135 pounds) or just thats the only bad thing people have to say about this board, so it comes out alot worse. But overall i can still go fast enough to have fun and race buds down hills for jokes, and ofc its great in the park. Fun Board!

"This board can do everything" 2/20/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Buttery Fresh, Magne Traction,

Experience:   I took this board out as a demo and fell in love with it, I tried a 156 (I'm 6'7''/240lbs) and felt at home on it, buttering like crazy and even taking it to high speeds on icy blacks. The edge hold on this board is really great thanks to the magne traction and the stability is very surprising given the noodly flex of this board. This board also works wonders in the park on all features from rails to jumps, and saved my sketchy landings a couple of times. I would definitely look to adding this to my quiver in the future.

Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Good flex, sturdy base, great carving,

Experience:   My friend just got this board and I've borrowed it a few times and so far I love it. It has something called a banana rocker which, I think, helps you carve and get speed. I have used it off trails in powder, and also it the terrain park and it has done me good. It is a great borad for jumping the big kickers of even trail jumps.
