Lib Tech Snowboards 2009-2010

19 Feb, 2009

With a devoted following of Lib Techies and the world watching every step they make when it comes to snowboard designs, Lib Tech is no longer that Northwest Company tucked away in the corner. It’s spread out around the world, striking banana love into everyone who wants a fun board from park to powder.

Men and women have been riding with a banana happily between their legs and thanks to Lib Tech’s genius marketing team…it isn’t wrong to say that. The big change in 09-10 is the addition of C2BTX giving double camber/banana to the Dark Series. Regardless of who invented that first, it’s an idea that works regardless of what company uses it. The Banana gets a magic touch to it with a magic sidecut that I doubt even Harry Potter could have created up.

Personal props to the SIA outfits this year, I don’t think I will ever forget the Lib men making fleece onesies look like they did.

    I know that there is a big ho haa over who invented C2BTX and whether Lib ripped it off NS, but this seasons Gnu Billy Goat has the same tech, though its called Harmonics tech, so i dont think the mud sticks:

    What o what is this magical sidecut, I wonder? I mean, what could it be? it’s not asymmetric like the pickle is it? It’s not wavy like mtx, is it? it’s not a version of mtx, like Burton’s Pressure Distribution Edges or Never Summer’s vario power grip sidecut, is it?? I’m at a loss….

    btw, Alex, there is no controversy over where C2 came from–Never Summer did it first and Gnu and Lib have the same parent company. It doesn’t matter and I don’t care about “who did it first,” but ‘dems is the facts, for the record.

    actually, anonymous, lib tech did “c2”, “recurve”, “double camber” whatever you want to call it first. they had it on their skiis and neversummer ripped it off- even stole the marketing term “recurve” initially and has since changed it. neversummer also stole the key element- reverse camber between the feet only- from Mervin to begin with.

    can’t wait to see these boards in person and on the snow!

    I bought a Santa Monica Airlines skateboard deck two years ago described as having “recurve” — maybe Skip should sue the snowboard companies? Dang.

    SERIOUSLY, who gives a sh*t??? as a consumer you should be happy cuz you have so many choice of boards/brands to choose from!!! bottomline is, go demo all the different boards and whichever one you like the best, that’s one you should get!!!

    Sorry to smash your argument anonymouscoward, but actually libtech didn’t do r.c. tech first:

    this is what their skis are made of:

    however, r.c. tech is

    so actually its a whole lot of different and cannot be put into the same category. inform yourself before posting such useless untrue information next time. lib tech didn’t do it first!
