Lib’s XC2 Power Banana takes their award winning C2 geometry to dimensions of X even they don’t understand. The XC2’s directional twin shape has lengthened camber under foot for increased end to end stability, pop, and tip to tail edge contact in firm snow, and a shorter Banana between the legs to keep you effortlessly floating through powder in at least two directions. This is just like the TRS XC2 BTX except for the fact that there's no fiberglass in this board, it's an eco-friendly basalt fiber instead which provides superior vibration dampening for a smooth and fast ride.

Comments about Lib Tech TRS HP XC2 BTX Snowboard:
I'll start this by saying, I ride the Ice Coast whenever I can't get further west. Lots of hard-pack. Lots of ice (although this year was much better than usual). So I'm used to riding cambered boards if I want to charge.
But riding this board was a revelation.
The hybrid rocker profile gave me enough float to play with, and I never worried about edge catching. But the board became very responsive when I wanted to dig in. It's like the Magne-traction was reading my mind.
If you ride a lot of powder, you probably don't want to with a true twin, but this excels at almost everything else. And If I all I did was hard charge, I miiiiight go with the T.Rice instead fr being setback, and stiffer. But for a playful board with a ton of pop that can also haul tail on hard pack?... The TRS HP is it. I wish I'd been riding this board from day 1.
Also, it's super-light. My 159 Weighed less than my GF's old 140 Roxy!
