Travis Rice Pro Construction
  • Riley

    I’ve been doing some research on the product line and I am down to the Travis Rice PRO HP 164.5W and the Skunk Ape HP 165W. I am 6’1 about 220lbs and I I’m geared more towards riding away from groomers into the backcountry. I really don’t ride switch that much. Help on my decision? I guess I need to know if it’s worth it going for a directional twin versus how much the pointy tipped TRice PRO can offer in deeper snow. All mountain is still the focus but I never really touch the park, just chase untouched lines.


  • The pointy shape of the T-Rice is mainly an aesthetic feature, so if you center mount the boards the Skunk will probably feel a bit better in deep snow–but they do have different feels! The T-Rice has a more aggressive sidecut, so it will turn a bit easier than the Skunk Ape, which will like to go straight a bit more.

    I’d recommend checking the boards out and standing on them at your local shop!

  • Riley

    Roger that, thanks!

  • Kevin

    I’ve been looking at this board and the non HP C2BTX. I found a pretty good price on the 2012 version of the HP. I was wondering if the board is still the same as this years and just a different graphic or are there any major changes in the design? Also, between the 2012 HP and this years C2 BTX non horsepower which would be the better buy? I went to the shop and the 161.5 seems to be the best fit. I do very little park and mainly ride trees and backcountry. I’m 6′ and 200 lbs. Thanks!

  • Kuba Dziewiecki

    I am looking for a good all mountain board. I am 5.8 and 155 lb. I like bombing quickly down pistes and finding nice deep untouched lines. I generally stay out of the park but I sometimes head over for a few jumps. Currently i am looking at the T. Rice Pro HP and the Burton Custom Flying V. Any suggestions as to the difference between these boards and any recommendations?

  • Wayne’s World

    Any wax recommendations for this board? Whatever would be best for the long term condition of the base. Looking into some med to high fluoro, was checking out one ball jay x-wax. Also I’m guessing it is a non-graphite base, so if i did go the x-wax route I would want to skip the rub on graphite bar correct?

  • We prefer One-Ball, but aside from that…we are not wax experts.

  • The T-Rice will definitely complement your riding style!
    If you go with a Lib rather than a Burton, you’ll get a board handmade in the USA by a snowboarder, using eco-friendly materials. You’ll also get out glorious blend of Banana (our patented version of rocker) with camber underfoot. Our Magne-Traction serrated edges will also give you unbeatable edge hold.

    The HP construction will result in a ride more light, lively, damp and sparkly than anything you’ve ever ridden.

  • Hi Kevin,
    So sorry for the delay!
    Whether or not you go with our orginal construction or HP, you’ll still be getting a phenomenal board.
    We may have made some slight changes to the blend of woods and fiberglasses we use inside the board since 2012, but all in all, they will be very similar!

    HP will offer a lighter, damper, more lively and more sparkly ride–so definitely a step up in performance.
    But the Normal T-Rice is in no way a low end board.

  • Felipe

    Hey Lib Tech! I’m looking for a good all around board and have been digging the TR Pro HP for a while now! I tend to spend equal parts of time in parks and looking for powder/backcountry, but i’m always looking for jumps, do you guys think this would be a good board for me? My actual board is a 2008 Burton Jeremy Jones, what would be the main difference i’d feel with the TR Pro HP? Thanks!

  • Piero Lovati

    Hello there.I am a tall guy. About 6.4 height and near 190 lbs weight. Should i purchase the TRAVIS RICE PRO HP 161.5 WIDE or a longer one like the 164 or the 164.5 WIDE? Which one is better for freestyle snowboarding, easy turning and stability ? Thank you

  • Uwe Weinkauf

    I am trying the board finder and it spits out TRice Pro 155 HP and two TRS HP 157 and 159. I wonder why they don’t come out with the same board length. I am 6′, weight 180 lbs, and shoe size 9. I went to one of your resellers and they said I should not go for 155 period.
    I have been reading in your posts that the T Rice is like a wide board in comparison to standard boards. However, in your specs the width on both 157 boards is 25.8 on TRice and 25.3 on TRS. That is a very small difference. Plus given my height shouldn’t I be at least on a 159 -162 board? I hope you get why this is a bit confusing to me and thus the question why your board finder suggest a 155 size. I am all for investing more on the right board.

    I also read that the T Rice feels more tankish. Why is that? Is it due to relatively long effective edge length? it has 121 which only 160+ boards typically have. So, what was the intend of this board? Small and compact yet able to plow through all kinds conditions and park?

    For me I am an advanced snowboarder for all mountain. Less park. Have done switch stance riding but feel directional riding is better on your body. My goal is to find a fast board which can handle gnarly and powder conditions and can turn quick when I need it to be. When riding fast I like a stable board which does not lose the edge and can handle icy patches too.

    Thanks so much in advance.

  • Tommy

    I have a burton blunt 150 currently and first day riding it (1 year ago) i slammed into a rock in a woods trail and split the nose. Ive been riding it since and yesterday i slammed into another rock in another woods trail and the split grew. The board is still rideable and i really love it but im sick of burtons shit everything is 1 season old and breaking including my cartel bindings… I wan this board but im only 5’5″ and 129 pounds, Should i get it anyway? i ride alot of park, alot of glades, and alot of groomers and mouguls… Some help? Thanks, i ski north east so its alot of ice and rarley pow but there is pow in the glades often…

  • We make this in a 150 and I think you will LOVE it!
    Unlike the big B (and any other brand) we don’t wrap our edges around the nose and the tail–this reduces weight and makes the board a lot more durable if/when you encounter those pesky trees. If you happen to hit anything, the plastic tip and tail may not look as pretty as they once did, but they edge won’t be compromised at all.

    This board will perform amazingly no matter where you take it!

  • The long effective edge certainly contributes to the tanky/aggressive fee of the board.
    But also the blend of bi-axial and tri-axial fiberglasses and thicker core profile underfoot it will feel very torsionally stiff.

    The TRS will feel a bit more snappy, flexy and fun.

    If you love riding 155, you could go for the 154 TRS and you would likely not even notice the 1cm difference.

    The .5cm difference in the waist width is pretty substantial–and the Rice is more of a midwide than a standard width board. Travis has big feet, so we make his pro model a bit wider to accommodate them.

  • Most definitely! This board can handle absolutely anything.

  • Go for the wide if your boots are bigger than a USA size 12–wide boards are really intended to reduce the possibility of toe drag.

  • c adkins

    yesterday i bought a t. rice pro hp in 161.5, coming from an older (2006ish) 165 lib-tech. i got to ride it today and all i can say is WOW!!! i was a little worried being a tall guy (6’5″ 195 lbs) and not getting a wide, but my size 14 Ride boots fit perfectly centered and balanced with NO toe drag! wickedly agile and fun board. i’d recommend this board to the taller from folk out there no sweat.

  • Ben Harris

    Like Piero I’m also tall. I’m 6’3″, 230lbs with size 12 boots. I’m looking to upgrade from my 164 wide intermediate board as I’ve outgrown it. Do you know if I would be ok with the standard 157 or better off with the 161.5 wide?

  • Markus Mürset

    hi together please i need your help. I ride always very fast and tricky in the powder and i’m 180cm. Whats the best option for me? The Trice 161,5 HP or the Jamie Lynn Phonex 160?? Thanks a lot for your help!
    Regards from zurich/ switzerland

  • Sid Williams

    Hi, I was riding a Custom X 158 until it snapped recently, the board finder recommended a 155 T.Rice Pro HP standard for me, I’m 178lbs and 5 10″, would the 155 be big enough, I ride at an advanced level. Thanks

  • Eric Hylton Reber

    I’m renting a Travis Rice Pro HP 161.5W this week in Jackson Hole and I’m loving it. This week we are mostly staying on the piste, but there is some new powder, but not really deep pow, and the board is working well in that. I’m thinking about buying this board, but I’m wondering about two things: (1) Does this board do as well in deep powder as on the piste? and (2) I’m 6′ tall and weigh about 188 pounds with a US size 11 boot. Would the 164.5W board be better for me? Thanks, Eric

  • Kenny

    I’ve ridden a lot of boards so far K2, Morrow, Forum, Option, Nitro (hope I’m not showing my age lol) and I’m currently on a 160 Burton Joystick. This board is a lot of fun but I feel like it’s missing something. I’m looking for a board that just goes when I point it downhill and can hold and cut turns smoothly and holds an edge. The T-Rice seems like the one but just reaching out to see what you think. I appreciate your time. 6foot/size10/220

  • Ovidiu Coşa

    Hello. I am riding a burton operator 158cm from 2009/2010, shaun white’s older snowboard, with ride revolt bindings, 3 years old and shaun white burton boots from 2009/2010. I am 1.82m tall and I weigh 62kg. I was wondering if the 157cm trice HP wouldn’t be too short for my height and also if I might need the wide version, having in mind that i have 27cm as my feet size. (9US)
    Thank you.

  • Josh Raggle Fraggle

    Hello I’m looking for some advice I’m looking to pick up a new board for this upcoming season. I’m 5’11 about 155lb with a 10.5 shoe size. I currently rider a 157w Banana magic the 2013 for freeride and a little park. I’m looking for powder only board what would you suggest? I’ve also been riding for many years so I would say my skill level is advanced.

  • Alex

    when will the 150 be in stock?

  • Gregory Adrian

    I am 6’1” 180lbs and wear a size 12 burton boot, would you suggest the 157W or the regular 157?

  • Damien

    Good morning from France Lib Tech team,
    I’m 27 year old, 9.5 feet, 180cm and 182 lbs, I’m snowboarding since 4 years now and before skiing since I’m very young.
    This is my level: I take all track bleu, red, black, I start to jump in park (the XS one I love it !) and to do some back country, all montain so and I start to play with the snoboard 180, andy, nose / tail press… I’m increasing my level and I want a excellent board to do so, I usually ride a rented board between 157 and 164, but for my first snowbard I don’t want to do any mistake, for me I think 159 will be the good size, but I’m lost, I feel good on all sizes !
    What is your recomandations. (I’m also looking for the Mark Lanvik Phoenix board that have the size 160)

    Another question maybe supid but I don’t care about it, Why the snowboard sizes are jumping from 157 to 161,5 and forgetting the sizes betweens ?

    Have a good day, in advance thank you.

  • Cameron Halmrast

    I recommend going with the 157W, especially if your boots don’t feature the reduced footprint technology offered by Burton or DC. However, not owning this year’s model, I can’t confirm they have made it wider than last year’s traditional width.

  • Gabriel Dicker

    5’10 210+ lbs with 10.5 feet? 157w? or 157 or even 155? wearing travis rice boots can i pull off 155 narrow?

  • John Flores

    Howdy. I’m 6’2″, 200 lbs and have been riding the 161.5 t-rice pro for several years. I love the board and am considering this year’s 157 as I’ve been hitting the park a bit more these last few years and think the shorter board will be a little more playful. My general concern in my weight and height… and I’m finding myself asking if this is too short. That said, I’ve still got the 161.5 and can rip that sucker on deep days. Thoughts?

  • Thiago Silva

    hi! which binding do you suggest me to use with this board (TRice pro)? i am an advanced rider who ride all mountain and love parks
    knowing this, do you thik 155 is a good size for me ? i did not buy it yet
    I’m 5’72 and weigh about 175 lbs

  • mikey

    5’5 165… go with the 150 or the 153?

  • Byron Contreras

    Question for you guys; I’m 6’3″, 200lbs, and wear an 11.5 boot. Will the 161.5 be wide enough or will I have a significant amount of toe/heel hang? The waist measurement makes it seem like I should be fine…. Thanks for all of the help!

  • Byron Contreras

    Whats your current boot size? I have been looking at the 161.5 but I am worried about toe hang

  • Hey! Noticed that the 164.5 wide selection is disabled. Is there any chance there will be more of this board / size available, or am I out of luck?

  • StefanG

    John, I’m 6’1″ and 176 lbs and I currently ride a 152 skate banana. I’m thinking of the 157/161/5 t-rice.
    I guess for you, a 157 for some park would be fine. As for me 161.5 might be a bit too much.

  • ! Everything we have available is shown on our website—so
    if we don’t have it up for sale, it means we don’t have any in our warehouse. With
    it being late in the season, it is pretty unlikely that we will have it in
    stock down the line, as we are not building any more boards from this year’s
    line. My apologies for any inconvenience! We do pride ourselves on selling out
    of boards quickly, though.

    I’d recommend reaching out to your local shop and seeing
    if they’ve got it:

    You also may be able to find the board for sale with an
    online retailer—I’d recommend using Google’s shopping results!


  • Daria

    Hey guys!
    Could you tell me, what whould be the best variant for man 185sm and 90-95 kg.
    157 is it enough? or may be 161,5

  • Chris B.

    Hi everybody!
    Would be great, if you could help me and recommend a size of this great board.
    I’m 6,4″ (194cm) and about 196lbs (89kg) with a 11,5 US-shoe-size.
    Would a 161w board be enough or should I go for a 164w?
    Thanks in advance.

  • Hello Chris,

    You could ride both, if you want to ride park, or have something fun to ride groomers and little butters, the 161w would be the better of the two. But if you were looking for something a little bit more all mountain and powder focused, the 164w would be better. Hope this helps!


  • Pace

    you used to make a regular travis rice pro, and a horse power version. I dont see the two anymore, but I see “horse power” listed above on this page. Did you stop making the regular one, and now just call the horse power version with the regular name “travis rice pro”? what are the differences besides the ones mentioned here, stiffer, snappier? I have the regular from 4 years ago and it is time for an upgrade !
    Thanks, Paco

  • Hello Paco,

    Yes, the HP to the place of the standard. The HP compared to the standard will be lighter, snappier and will maintain its flex a little bit longer. Due to the basalt we use in our snowboards, it gives it a little bit more life and performance.


  • Martin Small

    Hi, can you tell me how hard the base is please? It just says “Sintered” above – but what rating? 3000, 5000, 8000? Thanks!

  • Leroy

    Hey Lib Tech,
    I’m interested in this board but I’ve got a few concerns before I make the purchase.
    I’m 170cm tall (5’7″), weigh about 70kg (154 lbs) and have boot size 9.
    I was looking into the 155 sized board but my concern is about the waist width. I’ve been looking around the web to see how wide the board should be for my feet so that I won’t have too much under-/overhang of my boot with the board.

    I ride regular and with a slight duck foot stance and my main terrain is groomer. However, I really want to make the most out of that and be able to fool around whenever I feel like it. I thought this would be a good board for that, am I right? And will I have issues with under-/overhang of my boot with the chosen sized board?


  • Hello,

    For your height, weight and boot size the 155 would work well for you! Having a size 9 boot, you shouldn’t have to worry about the 25.5 waist width. As for your riding style, this would be a great board for you. Having a true twin with the C2 shape will make cruising groomers a lot of fun, especially once you start fooling around with butters and little side hits.


  • Michael

    Hey guys I’d like to step up to the T rice board. I’m currently riding the attack banana 161wide. I’m 191cm tall and about 85kg but I still feel like the 161 is just a little to big. So I’m stuck on what size would be the best option for me in the t rice pro. Does any body have any advice

  • Hello,
    If the 161W is feeling a little big, for your height and weight you could jump down to the 157W. it would be a fun size to ride on hard pack, then jump back on the 161 on powder days!


  • Nicolas Frank Mickaelson

    Hey dudes, I ride a 162 and I am 6’3” 205. Would it by crazy to get a 159W for the harder pack days, or should I stick to a longer board since I don’t ride park that often mostly free-ride with some spins and flips off of natural terrain.

  • Hello,

    No, jumping down to a 159W would be fine for those slushy and hard pack groomer days!


  • Michel


    I am interested in the TRAVIS RICE PRO (or if you would recommend the boards), and wish to know a lil bit better what size do I need.
    I am 165lbs, (75 kg), 6.0’(183 cm), wearing Burton AMB boots size 10.5 US.
    I mostly free ride, butter, and lil bit of free styling, but in general I kind of do it all, enjoying many things.

    I am wondering what board size will fit the best? Do I need the wide versions? or 10.5 Burton boot is fine with the regular width?

  • Damarcus James

    What exactly is the co-ex base? is it similar to co-sintered?

  • Aiden Hindley

    Hey, I have size 13 feet and am 6’3, weighing around 165lbs would I be good for this board?

  • Lasse Usslepp

    Hey Lib Tech Team,
    i need your help to find the perfect board for me,
    i prefer a board from the travis rice collection
    – am 188cm tall (6,2)
    – weight 95 kg
    – boot size 10 (43 EUR)

    my skill Level : Advanced / expert
    and ride : all Mountain / Powder

    please tell me your mind ?

  • Chad

    Hey whats going on brothazz

    This year I’m super stoked because I know I’ll be getting a new board. I’m looking at this Travis Rice pro board and almost positive this will be my next board, however like everyone else I’m not sure what size to get.

    I was rocking a 159 skate banana before and truthfully I feel like I should size up on the board, still felt a bit small.

    I’m 6’1 about 220 lbs. Shoe size 11 to 11.5 depending on the boot.

    I’m stuck between the 161.5 W or the 164.5 W. I realize that the lib tech boards are heavily reliant on weight so hopefully you guys can give me some more insight on which size I should pul the trigger on. let me know, right on guys!

  • Hello Chad,

    For your size, the 161.5W would be the better board.


  • Jake

    Looking to get the T Rice Pro, I’m 6’0″ 185-190 lbs with an 11 boot. Would the 157 regular work for me? Can’t decide if I need the wide shape.


  • Keith W

    Hi, I’m looking at a T.Rice Pro. I’m 6′,2″.. 220lbs.. and 10.5 boot. What size board do you think would fit me best? If you think I should be on a different board please give me your opinion. I’m mostly a cruiser rider, and living on the east coast I get a lot of groomed trails, with the occasional powder days….. if it’s lucky enough to snow on the weekends. Thanks in advance.

  • Cameron Halmrast

    I have the 157 regular and it really depends whether your current boots feature reduced footprint technology and what brand of bindings you are rocking. I have the same foot size and tried to put my Union Contact Pros (Large) on my Rice and there is a bit of overhang, but not too bad, while the Union Atlas’ fit perfect. However, I put my Thirty-Two Team-Two on this deck and there is a lot of overhang, but my Burton Rampant LTDs fit just fine.

  • Cameron Halmrast

    159 to 161.

  • Cameron Halmrast

    GNU Billy Goat, unless you have snowboard boots featuring reduced footprint technology and get the wide board.

  • Hello Jake,

    The 155 would be a good park size, the 157 for a quiver killer do everything size, and the 161.5 would be a good pow size.


  • Hello Keith,

    The T.Rice would be a great board for you and your riding style. If you wanted Another option, the Gnu Riders Choice would also be a great one for you. It has similar construction and shape but with our ASYM side cut technology. For your size, anywhere around a 159 to 161 would fit you well.

    hey I am looking to get on a Lib tech this year. I am 5’7 150 lbs size 9 boot. I am looking for an all arounder. I ride all mountain but enjoy hitting some rails and the park here and there can you give me some advice on size and what board to look at? I have never been on a Lib so some options that you recommend would be great!

  • Trevor R

    Hi Guys!
    I am pretty sure I want the t rice pro for my next board and just had a question on size. I am looking for a one board to do it all, I ride steeps and deeps in bounds but definitely spin jib and jump down the mountain. I think the 161.5 is the board for me (would prefer a better board in pow then the blunted nose for jibing). My question is I am 6’0 but only 150 pounds, is this board too stiff for my weight?? Will I be able to flex a 161.5? Or should be looking for something else entirely?
    Thanks for the help!

    Hey Mervin Pro’s! I’m 6’1″ and go between 200-210 lbs pre gear, foot size of 10.5. I’ll be riding 90% of the time at Baker, when not at Baker, we’re @ Sun Peaks or Whistler. I’m coming off an older Burton Custom (165) and like many struggling with size as well as board selection. I’m currently stalled on the Billy Goat or the TR Pro 161/162 or 164, my concern with smaller is float in the POW at Baker, which you all know can be a bit heavy. I’m fairly athletic, I ride roughly 150 days a year on Galbraith, therefore looking for a board that is stiff and can take some hard carving as well as floats the POW. Been riding boards for 20yrs, not a high flyer but a hard charger. Thank you in advance for the thoughts.

  • Hello Brett,

    For your size, any board between a 150-156 would ride well for you. If you like to ride more park go with a smaller size, if you want something for powder go with the 156. And around a 153 would be a great do everything size for you.

    The T.Rice is a great board if you’re looking to a little bit of everything! if you wanted a little bit more park specific, the Attack banana would be a board to consider, its slightly less aggressive then the T.Rice. And the step up from the T.Rice would be the TRS, another great do everything board!


  • Hello Trevor,

    The T.Rice would be a great do everything board for you. but you might be a little light for the 161.5, it could feel a bit stiff. The 157 might be the better size for you. If you have a size 12+ boot you will need to be on the wide. Have you checked out the TRS? similar board with a slightly more aggressive camber profile, it also comes in a 159 and 159mw which would be a great size for your height and weight.


  • Brett Perry

    Thanks Mervin! I was looking at the TRS also, it comes in a 151N and then next size is a 154… I guess my question is would a 154 be playful/maneuverable enough to spin and throw around?

    Thanks again for the help!

  • Keith W

    Thanks for the feedback. I just picked up my board today!!! I went with the 161.5. Sooooo pumped!!

  • Keith W

    Thanks for the info.

  • Sam Raymond

    I mainly like to charge hard and like to feel stable, but I feel that I got talked in to buying the wrong size last year. I am 6’2″ 190lbs, size 12 boot and was told to buy the 164.5W. Now I’m scared my board is too big. Will it feel like a 20 ft long 2×4 or just be a little tougher in the trees?

  • Ian McCully

    So, I’m 6′ 4″ , 200 lbs, 12.5 boot size, and an expert category rider. Based on this, the Travis Rice Pro 164.5 wide seems like it would be a good fit. However, When I enter my stats info into the Board Finder, the Travis Rice Pro does not come up as a recommended board (the Skunk Ape does). I’m curious to know why this would be the case? I ride all-mountain (groomers, steeps, trees, and pow). Thanks.

  • Yes, the 154 would be a good size for what you’re looking for.


  • Hello Sam,

    No, the 164.5W will not feel like a massively over sized snowboard, it will ride and float great in powder. But if you wanted to, you could size down to the 161.5w for a everyday groomer board.



  • Hello Ian,

    The T.Rice and the Skunk Ape are two very similar boards when it comes to construction and camber profile. The Skunk Ape is just geared more towards bigger guys like yourself. That’s probably why the Skunk Ape came up instead of the T.Rice. That being said, the 164.5w T.Rice is plenty big enough for you to ride if you would like.


  • Brett Perry

    Thanks! You guys rock!

  • Garrett Butler

    How can I get a 161.5W? Seems like they’re sold out?

  • Kenpachi Zaraki

    I bought this board and I can’t get off lol …. I mean, it is so much better at everything then any other board I rode in the past. I’m 5’8”, 170 pounds size 9 boots and I ride the 155. And I tell you all, it is just perfect 😉

  • Riko Arrieta

    I am new to snowboarding, what do y’all thing? Is this too much of a board for me? Does it holds its edge? is it a good carver? thanks!

  • John Pasyon Banola

    Hello, All…I am looking at getting a new board, but trying to make sure I get the right one. I occasionally hit the halfpipe, but primarily ride the steeps, trees (on pow days) and like to charge hard and lay down carves on corduroy when there is nothing fresh. I am 5’9″ and 210 with a size 12 boot (Salomon boots with reduced footprint) and have been riding a 55 forever. My rider level is advanced/expert (not in the pipe though) and I am considering the TR Pro HP. Could you please give me your opinion on whether this board would be a good fit and also whether the 57 would work or if I need the 57W. Thanks!

  • Sergio

    Hey guys, for 11.5 size boot should I get the 157 regular or wide? Thanks!
