Welcome back to BRANDED. We’re finding all the best winter products for the 20/21 Winter Season. Check out the new all-terrain powder weapon from Lib Tech, the Travis Rice Orca x The Orca Conservancy Snowboard.
Watch the video from their trip whale watching and touring their zero hazardous waste factory, as well as a healthy dose of Travis ripping to get a instight to how this board and collaboration has come to fruition!
Lib Tech and Travis Rice are proud to announce their partnership with the Orca Conservancy (www.orcaconservancy.org), an organization committed to the recovery of the Southern Resident killer whale population and protecting the wild places on which it depends.
Travis and Mervin donate a portion of the sales of every Orca snowboard to www.orcaconservancy.org, which fights against the extinction of the killer whales in the Salish Sea. #betheirvoice.
The board itself is the technical all-terrain version of Travis' Slasher / Pow Ripper, with which he makes his home resort Jackson Hole unsafe. This is a real shred predator. A long nose ensures a lot of buoyancy, while the Whale Tail Technology guarantees pop and maximum contact with a tight radius. Tight 7M sidecut that cuts through everywhere like a plow. Wide enough to go clean on the edge on hardpack without toe drag and at the same time so narrow that you can have fun with it all season long. From steep slopes in Alaska to BC Pillow Lines to normal days at home.
NEW VOLUME DISTRIBUTION - THIS BOARD WILL DRIVE 3-6 CM SHORTER THAN NORMAL.
- DREAM DIRECTIONAL SHAPE AND CONTOUR FOR WHAT TRAVIS CALLS FUN
- APEX FREERIDE POW RIPPER MEETS RESORT SLASHING DAILY DRIVER
- FLOATY NOSE, TIGHT SIDECUT, MAXIMUM POWER TAI
Here's what Travis has to say about his Orca snowboard:
Lib Tech ripper and fantastic artist Mike Parillo worked with Travis to design this year's “Nature x Science” Travis Rice Collection - perhaps the best snowboard line-up of all time. Mike's realistic interpretation of this predator from a bird's eye view ties in seamlessly with the first two graphics of this model from previous years. The base is inspired by the drawing of the orca K-37 aka "Rainshadow", the descendant of K-12 aka "Sequim", who comes from Mervin MFG's hometown of Seattle.
