If Lando had bigger feet...
Love Mark Landvik but hate toe drag? The Lib Tech Mark Landvik Phoenix Series C2-BTX Snowboard is now available in a wide version for big-footed shredders who want to launch into open powder landings, boost natural features, and take apart steep, scary lines just like Lando himself.
Perfect for the snowboarder trapped in a football player's body, the wider waist not only prevent toe drag, but also provides greater float in powder, which is key for the heavier guys out there. C2 BTX Power Banana technology features rocker between the bindings for a floaty and forgiving ride in powder, with camber zones extending from the bindings to the tip and tail to give it a more aggressive feel that provides edge hold on hard pack and pop off of jumps. Edge hold is also boosted by the one and only Magne-Traction serrated edges. The ultra-fast and extremely durable TNT base is infused with Teflon to reduce friction so you can fly down the mountain at mach speeds, and a directional twin shape and set-back stance gives you more power and control when you're shredding, but still allows you to ride away switch so you can stomp those big back 180s into fluffy landings.
You can also ride a little easier knowing that this board was made right here in America using environmentally-friendly materials. Basalt reduces the amount of fiberglass needed without sacrificing strength, the Bio Bean topsheet is made from castor beans instead of petroleum-based plastics, and the H-Pop core comes from fast-growing, sustainably harvested trees so you're not contributing to the destruction of the rainforests.

I'm 6' and 165lbs (if I eat a big breakfast)....
I'm 6' and 165lbs (if I eat a big breakfast). I wear a size 12 thirtytwo lashed boot, which I believe uses some form of boot reduction tech and use Union Factory bindings, which have the adjustable gas pedals. Do I need the wide version of the Landvik, or could I get away with the standard width 160?
Based on your description and the Thirtytwo boots using a smaller shell the size 12 will be closer to say a 10.5 or 11 in terms of the over all footprint. Based on that a regular board should* be fine.
I ride a size 11 boot (no reduction in overall footprint) and every now and than I get some nasty toe drag but that's if I'm laying down a nice carve, but that depends on the width of the board.
