Lib Tech's T. Rice is a staple deck in the all-mountain stable. "The T. Rice has a kung-fu balance between stiffness and playfulness," one tester explained. "It's a quiver killer—stiff enough to rail through groomers and playful enough to pop into the nose as you butter knolls and knobs like a baker with a tub o' butter." The T. Rice is offered in a blunt twin-tip shape for more freestyle riding, or with a pointy pow tip in larger sizes for better float. With a trifecta of hardwoods in the core wrapped in a high-end jacket of basalt, bean-based, and traditional fibreglasses, it has a dynamic and damp feel. One tester summed up the versatile flex saying, "I loved the energy in this board and felt super confident everywhere. It's super stable at speed and maneuvers well even when slow." New for this year the T. Rice comes standard with Lib's Horse Power Construction—a lighter and snappier fiberglass layup for premium pop and power. Finished with Magne-Traction edges, a medium-firm flex and a hybrid camber profile solidifies its utility as another tested asserted, "I liked how playful this board was but could still hang hauling ass and hardpack 'roy. One moment I was buttering a snow mound, the next I was blasting down a backside turn."

(Flex is not standardized and differs by brand. The rating here is the best estimate of
the board's flex.)
(Sidecut Radius: If you arced the tightest turn possible to make a complete circle, the sidecut radius would be the distance between the direct center of that circle and its rim, in meters. A board with a deeper sidecut would have a smaller radius and would generally make tighter turns. As the radius number increases, a board can be expected to make wider turns. Multiple numbers on the same length board means the radius is blended.)
