Lib Tech Snowboards 2008-2009

09 Feb, 2008

This year at SIA I didn’t spend that much time checking out Lib Tech. I did stop by to make my own T-shirt but it was always packed so didn’t get much time to stop and look at each snowboard.

South of the North put up the catalog a couple months ago. His go more into detail than mine so check that out if you want more.

I rode the 08-09 Lib Tech Mc Kink, see the review here

    Looking at the 8th picture down, “Jay holding up the Phoenix Topsheet” if you look in the background you can see a pretty girly looking Gnu board. I’m going to guess it’s a BC board. Anyone know if it has banana technology?

    That is the GNU B-Nice that you can see, It will not have banana tech. But the GNU B-Street will have banana tech for next year.

    The street series is definitely coming out for 08-09. He said the only board that’s gone is the 11-up, but it basically becomes the Riders Choice wide.
