In three short years, the Lib Tech T.Rice Orca Snowboard has cemented its legacy as one of the most sought after and capable boards ever made. The Orca is the envy of all-mountain riders and powder hounds alike. Built like an apex predator, the Lib Tech T. Rice Orca Snowboard rides aggressively, with plenty of pop, precision, and stability to devour every inch of your chosen line. Like it’s namesake, the Orca is a most majestic and impressive beast, and this year Lib Tech will be donating a portion of every Orca snowboard sale to the Orca Conservancy and their efforts to combat the extinction of the Salish Sea’s Southern Resident Killer Whales.
C2X Technology – A shorter, more aggressive banana rocker combined with cambers that sit more underfoot. Extra solid tip and tail pressure for power, pop, precision and end-to-end stability combined with a medium amount of pressure between your feet for carving, edge hold on ice and float in pow.
Medium – Stiff Flex – Stout enough to charge your hardest but without excessive harshness.
