Lib Tech TRS Narrows : Women’s Good Wood All-Mountain Snowboards
Between the regular width and narrow versions of this board, the Lib Tech TRS has made the Good Wood list for 10 years in a row. Once again, our lady testers loved this deck for its all-mountain prowess. The gender-neutral design features an XC2 profile, which puts shortened rocker in the center while lengthened camber extends from underfoot to the tip and tail, for a reliable, hard-charging ride. The Magne-Traction edges provide dependable carve-ability in even the choppiest chunder. Rad to ride all over, the TRS Narrow will hold up, while you throw it down.
Available Sizes: 148N, 151N
“This board is lightweight, poppy, holds an edge, and presses. It’s an all-around good time, playful and powerful all at once. I would take this board anywhere—through park, pipe, trees, powder, or chunder.”
Good Wood 2015 Snowboard Test Presented by THE-HOUSE.com
How do you pick the board that rides the way you want from the thousands of options out there? The answer: with the Good Wood 2015 Snowboard Test results. This year our 18 testers spent eight days hammering 400 boards through the park and pistes of Winter Park, Colorado. Each of these testers rides a little differently from one another, so there’s something to be said when a board stokes out all who tried it. With the scores tallied for the 16th annual Good Wood, we present the best performing all-mountain and park boards of the year.
How The Boards Are Scored
Shortly after burning some laps on each board, our test crew inputs scores for 18 characteristics that measure the ride on a sliding scale. The park and all-mountain scorecards each have different criteria to pinpoint the strengths and weakness of each snowboard. We don’t cut the boards open and examine the details, but the crew often does break a deck or three. Once the winners are calculated, the testers are long gone, and the cardboard dust has settled from shipping, we package the tester feedback and send it to the brands involved, which they can use to help make better boards.
