Just took this beast out for the first time at Snowbird. Conditions were variable, mostly dust on crust and this board still slayed it. Although this board has a more pronounced rocker, it's aggressive sidecut and deeper MTX more than makes up for it when it comes to gripping the hard stuff. Coverage was still poor so I haven't really pushed it off the groomers but I CANNOT wait. Another win for Mervin, woot woot!

I'm 6' and 187lbs, wear a size 11.5 boot and went with a 158wide. Paired with Ride Phytop boots and Flux Pat Milbery binders.

Not gonna lie, I've been a Lib snob for quite some time now but this board has changed everything for me. I took this board out on two separate occasions at Snowbird. One day was your standard bottomless day we get here in Utah..no big deal. Anyway short story even shorter: effortless! I also took it out about a week after that storm on a sunny fast day and this board has incredible edge hold and you can go as fast as you want...scarrrry fast! Oh and its lighter than calista flockhart was on Ally McBeal.

Pros: Uber light, great response and stability, effortless float
Cons: no wide widths for my big feet

I haven't had a chance to put my hands on this years Rainier but last years was lined with what they called Buffalo Bill Fleece. This liner was more of a microfleece/brushed tricott than an actual fleece. I don't think it actually added any warmth to the jacket but rather a more comfortable/warmer touch to the skin. This jacket is still balled out with tech so if you need something waterproof that zips into your ride pants to make a one piece...this is definitely a good look. My other complaint is that in RIDE jackets, they do not have a designated MP3 pocket, rather a stretchy pocket inside the chest pocket but there is no hole to push headphones cord through. I solved this in about 2 seconds with a standard hole punch and it works great.

Ride claims to line this jacket with a faux fur but its really more of a micro fleece or brushed tricott. It isn't going to provide any warmth but has a lot nicer hand than a traditional nylon or tafetta. If you're looking for a comfy shell that zips into your ride pants, this is definitely a great piece to add to your collection

This is one of the nicest jackets you can buy period. The combination of down and goretex makes those miserable days the best ones of the year. No longer do you need to add layer upon layer when it dumps in January, just roll out of bed and put this on and you'll be good to go for the day. Not only is this one of the warmest, most waterproof jackets out there, its also incredibly light and easy to move around in. AK or bust

Sick Graphic!
4 5

Lib Tech is getting a little more eco friendly this year with Horsepower construction. This eliminates all the fiberglass out of the board and replaces it with basalt resins and a castor bean top sheet. Not to mention a fast growing renewable wood source that has a more natural flex and torsional stiffness. Oh and did I mention they all come with sick sparkly graphics...I blame twilight for this

Horsepower = sick graphics!
4 5

Lib Tech is introducing Horsepower this season which essentially is a more eco friendly construction using a fast growing renewable wood, basalt resins instead of fiberglass, and a castor bean top sheet. In addition to being treehugger constructed, the HP is also suppose to give the board a more lively feel.

Favorite Graphic of all time
4 5

Lib Tech introduced Horsepower to a couple boards this year and each of these boards comes with a nice sparkly graphic. Horsepower utilizes a fast growing renewable wood, basalt resins instead of fiberglass, and a castor bean top sheet. On top of all these things making the construction of the board more eco friendly, they are all suppose to make the board a more lively responsive ride. I haven't had a chance to ride it yet but I can't wait!

The material is water resisitant on the outside and microfleece on the inside so its warmer than your standard hoody because it doesn't get wet and is windproof.

Sizing: This runs a little big so if you want to layer with it, size down. I'm 6' and 185 and need a large. its too big to wear under anything but looks sick on its own or under a vest.

I've always been an Oakley lover and had crowbars but these are sick. The goggles sit a lot closer to your face than anything I've ever used. It almost totally eliminated having the frame in my perif's which doesn't even happen with my $150 crowbars.

These are listed as an all mountain or freestyle binding but I think they are too stiff to be considered either. They are incredibly responsive and pretty lightweight for a metal binding but they definitely won't flex in any direction once you're strapped in.

Sizing: I was wearing an 11.5 Prion and needed an XL

These are super responsive bindings and pretty comfortable but nothing about them made me that stoked on them. More of a freeride binding than a freestyle binding becase there isn't must play to metal.

Sizing: I wore a size 11.5 Prion and def needed the XL
Pro:Responsive, wedgie footbeds
Con: Not playful enough to be called all mountain

Got these pants when I moved out to Utah my first season and they worked out great until about Feb and then the cuffs were shredded and the waterproofing was gone. If you only ride on the weekends or take a few trips a year, these are great pants. If you put in more than 50 days a season, spend the extra cash in the first place and you won't end up buying two pairs in one season.
