Profile

Original Banana Rocker Profile - Blending rocker between your feet for edge hold and float, with mild camber toward the tip and tail for pop, stability, and control. Mervin's revolutionary all-terrain Original Banana blend is built for all conditions and terrain.

Easy / Jibby / Floaty

Core

Original Power Construction (OP) - 75% Aspen, 25% Paulownia - ultra light, strong, and lively.

Laminates

Bi-axial Fiberglass - This 2-way fiber orientation is engineered to provide maximum snap while decreasing chatter.

Tri-axial Fiberglass - This 3-way fiber orientation is engineered to increase snap and decrease vibrations for a smoother, more stable ride.

Topsheet

Eco-Sub Poly Top Sheet - Sounds technical right? It just means the top sheet is made from sublimated polyester material that's great for vibrant yet durable graphics, which means a long lasting image.

Base

Eco Sublimated TNT Base - Perfect for beginners and park riders, this base keeps you moving fast and is easy to repair.

Birch Internal Sidewalls - Rugged, lightweight, vertical end grain Birch internal sidewalls add pop and durability.

UHMW Sintered Sidewalls - A Lib Tech innovation that is twice as sintered as most industry sidewalls. This ultra high molecular weight (UHMW) material increases durability, response and control for easier riding.

I have been riding skate banana boards for over 12 years and I decided to move to the box knife earlier this season. I enjoyed the box knife but after five or six times up decided to go back to the skate banana and got a 2022 and I have to say that it is definitely my favorite board that I have ever owned. I’ve been riding for 30 years and this is the one! Easy seamless turning, great pop, butters beautifully, handles perfectly in high speed, gentle landings, and holds well with the smaller size. I am 5’10 and ride a 152 With complete stability. Not the best for deep powder, but anything under 8 inches this board will float through. I will never go away from the Skate Banana again.

Being that this was my first board ever, I was super stoked to find that it was an excellent performer in everything I threw at it. you could ride this board in anything, from stomping jibs and crushing rails at the park, slicing through the groomed, or floating through the powder, this board slays it all!!!! Also, the Magne-Traction offers knife-like grip in even icy conditions! I can't recommend this board enough! Lib Tech built a real beastly banana!!!!

Sweet Ride

This board is amazing. After skiing for 15 years, I switched to riding 10 years ago. This is my 4th board ( nitro, never summer, flow) and I have really never noticed much difference in performance of the boards. That changed with this one. This board carves effortlessly , it bites on turns like no other and it's fast. The graphics are killer, it is super light and the landings are noticeably softer. Over all review..... Pricey but well worth the ride.

Really fun shred stick that keeps flowing when you've had enough. Flexible and easy to learn new tricks and advance riding styles. Great for tweaking grabs and shifty spins.
