Travis Rice is well-known for pushing the boundaries of snowboarding on some of the gnarliest mountains in the world, so it's no surprise that he's extremely selective when it comes to his board choice. To appease his lofty demands, Lib Tech created the T. Rice Firepower Gold Member Snowboard. It pairs a powerful feel and ultralight construction to help Travis conquer death-defying descents from Patagonia to Alaska. Stability and lightning-quick response are both crucial when navigating no-fall zones like Travis frequently does, so this board is equipped with an aggressive C2x profile to maximize power, precision, and edge hold while still maintaining some float. Magne-Traction edges further improve edge hold by creating extra contact points, so you can maintain grip on windblown summits. Its pointed nose, notched tail, and slightly set-back stance enhance drive and float when you're surfing the deep stuff, but is still twin enough to ride switch when launching off backcountry booters and natural hits. The secret to the Gold Member's ultralight feel is Firepower construction. Not only is it a more sustainable way to build snowboards, but it also ensures the lightest, snappiest ride possible. Basalt replaces toxic fiberglass to give the board a livelier feel. Spin-Slim tip and tails reduce swing weight for ultra-smooth rotations and an incredibly light and snappy feel underfoot. The Bio Bean topsheet is made from castor beans instead of petroleum-based plastics to reduce environmental impacts while still keeping the board strong and poppy. Added carbon keeps the weight down while keeping the board plenty responsive and stable.

Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
