Lib Tech Snowboards 2011-2012

10 May, 2011


In snowboarding, one company bleeds the yellow and that’s Lib Technologies based out of the northwest.  In 2006, they introduced a banana to snowboarding and there’s no question to how much a banana has impacted the snowboards we ride today.  Since then Lib Tech continues to do what they do best, create and redesign snowboards to be experimental but also ridden by a range of riders from the small to the big, from the mountain to the park.

For 2012, Lib Tech continues to offer a range of styles for riders.  The BTX has rocker between the feet blended with flat to mild camber to contact points.  EC2 performs halfway between original banana tech and C2 with rocker between the feet blended with elliptical camber to contact points.  C2 with rocker between the feet blended with radial camber to contact points.  Enhanced Banana with the highest rocker between the feet with a secret  numerical formula of camber to the contact points.  C1 with rocker between your feet  and flat to mild camber from the front foot to nose contact blended with camber from the back foot to the rear contact area.  Tip to Tail Rocker is a powder only design with rocker extending past your feet.
