Um... everything???

Seriously, the T.Rice is for hard charging big ass lines and the SB is park/somewhat all mountain freestyle...

Seriously...check out Lib Tech's site or look online...not even remotely the same board. C2BTX vs standard BTX and completely different flex are the biggies.

Thats a big question champ

lets start off with the basics:

The T.Rice is an all mountain, hard charging ripper and back country slay machine. The skate banana is a freestyle oriented board turing the mountain into a freestyle playground. the T.Rice is also a lot stiffer than the skate banana making it not quite as good at jibbing and such, but the T.Rice still can do that.

on to the more important stuff:

The T.Rice has Lib's C2BTX shape, meaning there is banana rocker between the feet, and cambered sections after that until the tip and tail. this makes the board much more aggressive and poppy, and much more stable at high speeds. The skate banana has BTX, just banana rocker between the inserts, and flat to the tip and tail, making for a looser, more playful ride.

If you are more of a park rider, go with the skate banana. if you like to go fast and rip up the mountain, go for the T.Rice.

Hope this helps!!
