Lib Tech Travis Rice Orca 2019 Review by The Good Ride
The Lib Tech Travis Rice Orca continues on from the Climax and Gold Member and goes a little shorter, fatter, more set back, more directional and a little tapered. So it’s not much like those boards but I know people will ask how they compare. We had to face facts after getting a little time on the Orca that we are nothing even close to Travis Rice and his board is made for him more than us. That being said the board came right out of the factory without any de-tune and we were one of the first to get on it at the demo. Grant and I got on it again and our second impression over a few days of riding was much better. While it’s still one of the most aggressive hybrid rocker boards I’ve tried and not something for the average rider the overall experience is really good. I think this will play out well for those athletic, aggressive riders that want a shorter fatter straightliner that isn’t as unforgiving as you would think for the flex and also see a lot of hard to icy snow.
