Travis Rice Flying C2 Perfection In The Fourth Phase. Photos by Tim Zimmerman
When you catch Travis Rice’s latest epic snowboard adventure opus “The Fourth Phase” (Sunday at 9pm on Red Bull TV) you might notice something. Well a couple of things; first that this movie is at once stunningly beautiful, radical and thought provoking in a way that demands your presence on the mountain. It makes you want to grab your friends and head out on an epic snowboard trip of your own. Secondly you’ll notice that, “Damn!” those Lib Tech snowboards look insane!
Travis Rice along with fellow Lib Rippers Mark Landvik and Eric Jackson lead an hour and half parade of the World’s Best Boards spinning, flipping, slashing, flying and stomping across the big screen in the epic 4k beauty Red Bull Media House is known for. And it’s no surprise that they are doing it on a quiver of C2 (camber / rocker hybrid) shred sleds handcrafted in the USA by action craftsmen at the world’s most environMENTAL board factory, Mervin Mfg.

Eric Jackson taking the award winning C2 Lib Tech Total Ripper Series in to some of the most jaw dropping lines and tricks of the film.
The C2 contour is akin to one of Travis’ natural hit backside 720 nose grabs, perfection. C2 is a powerful and poppy but still floaty powder friendly derivative of the revolutionary Banana technology introduced on the Lib Tech Skate Banana 10 years ago. Travis is a playful rider who loves the fun and control of Banana but takes a macro approach to snowboarding and life, his version of playful is usually 100 feet further than most. So it makes sense that the playful and powerful combination of C2 is his favorite contour keeping the rocker between the feet and placing cambers under foot for precise power and pop without sacrificing lightning fast reaction and float in powder.

Mark Landvik is back again with his signature power and backcountry creativity on his pro model the C2 Lando Phoenix.
The C2 contour is featured throughout Travis’ entire line. The flagship of which is his aerial assault weapon of choice the T.Rice Pro snowboard. Available in both blunt and pointy shapes the T.Rice pro has flown Travis around the globe a few dozen times over. Helping him on his way to podiums and legendary video parts then landing him cleanly back in Jackson Hole ready for another monster kicker session or early up tram ride with the homies.
