Lib Tech Orca 2020 Review: A Top Snowboard for Soft Snow

表带的lib科技T.赖斯海怪和你可以买深粉最好的滑雪板的一个做好准备。

总会有一个时刻,每一个滑雪板测试仪的职业生涯时,他们变得疲惫。Don’t get me wrong — testing gear for a living ranks higher than many alternatives.

但也有只有这么多的粉天每年冬天,一旦你找到了完美的设置,您不想乘坐别的。

I’ve been testing and reviewing snowboards since 2014. And over the past 5 years of testing, I’ve enjoyed the seemingly endless search for the perfect board. But that all changed for me this past season when I hopped on the库科技T.赖斯奥卡($600).

我对这款主板的爱是什么秘密。我测试了这款主板去年春天和赞美赞美它。

甚至在此之前,美国本土齿轮测试,其中发生在科罗拉多经典春天的条件下,我有机会测试2020年的逆戟鲸的GearJunkie去年冬天在日本。vwin徳赢网新雪谷交付了货物,而我处理,我的几个生命中最好的粉天。

即进入我的脑海里,我通过名不符实日本鼓风机冲浪这个无可挑剔的形状的唯一负面的想法是,有一天,有一天,我将不得不搁置逆戟鲸和测试其他滑雪板。

As I was blinded by yet another glorious face shot, it dawned on me that I had become jaded.

Sizing the Lib Tech Orca: Wide as a Whale

The Orca is a blubbery board — it has ample width and rides shorter than your normal board. Consider the Orca 153: It’s got a nose width of 31.6 cm and a tail width of 30.6 cm, with a waist width of 26.7 cm.

Compare that to Lib Tech’s T. Rice Pro 161.5, which has nose and tail widths of 31.1 and a waist width of 26. I’m 150 lbs, 5’9”, and normally ride a 159 swallowtail in powder with a fully loaded backpack. But I brought the 153 to Japan, and it delivered more than enough float, even in thigh-deep hike-to terrain.

如果有的话,我可能已经尺寸下微幅下挫。当时,象现在这样库没有提供一个150。它只有147个,但我并不想成为下枪杀在Japow。

Were I shopping for a Japan trip now that they’ve launched additional sizes, I’d probably go for a 150. If I was looking for more of a daily driver than a powder board, I’d likely be just fine on the 147.

Performance in Powder

LibTechOrca3

技术规格不谈,奥卡骑宽,膨胀表面积提供气垫船状浮在粉末。当然,表面面积本身并不能够在无底Japow雪板到Excel - 其中很大一部分归结为拱形。

The Orca’s C2x camber profile is, in my mind, near perfect. There’s a prominent dip of rocker between the bindings, with camber underneath each foot and flowing to the tip and tail. The rocker pocket acts as a fulcrum on a seesaw, and when you step back on the tail, the nose lifts out of the snow, much like a breaching whale.

形状本身也极为粉末友好:除了注目宽度,所述奥卡体育2或2.5英寸(取决于尺寸)挫折姿态。

该容易识别的,剖切鼻给板更短的长度,这使得它易于通过在紧树木窄的间隙鞭奥卡,而moontail通过后甲板和锁在深雪匝有助于喷射雪。

Carving Capabilities

雕刻向下修整器(上罕见的时刻,我被迫在日本这样做),我发现甲板是出奇地灵活和边缘到边缘的过渡意外的快速。

在7M的侧切,马格纳牵引边缘,和弯度主导的利润允许流体雕和速度不会擦洗出来,像许多矮又胖的形状倾向于这样做。

流行通话时间

I didn’t have too much opportunity to lift off on the Orca, but when I did I was pleased by the snap and pop of the board. Lib ranks the stiffness at a 7/10, which is supplied by lightweight aspen and paulownia core. When airing off of pillows in Japan, the wide shape seemed stable, and smooth landings felt all but guaranteed.

Don’t just take my word for it. If you’ve paid attention to Travis Rice’s Instagram feed, you’ve likely seen the legend take on serious terrain on the Orca. He won the FWT stop at Hakuba, throwing a sizable backside 720 in the process.

He dropped one of the craziest pillow lines the world has ever seen in British Columbia.

But alas, I am not Travis Rice. You are not Travis Rice. (Unless you’re reading this, Travis, in which case, ‘sup, dude — lemme get on the next Falcor expedition).

My point is that unless you’re a bona fide park rat (in which case you’ve probably already stopped reading this), the Orca is capable in most freeride-meets-freestyle scenarios.

底线

该板是中我测试过的最好的。我想不出一个板我宁愿在厚厚的积雪骑马的,虽然也有一些其他的甲板,我很可能喜欢上平均每天的条件。

Regardless of the terrain or conditions, however, theOrca是,你会被激起来在你颤抖的武器。事实上,它可能只是撞你的箭袋中的其余部分在Craigslist的。

哦,不用担心我 - 作为气馁,因为我可能会暂时放弃Orca我测试其他形状,我陶醉于这骑库技术的任何一天我不上的时钟。我想,作为一个疲惫齿轮检测仪,这是一个跨我所能承受的。
