When conditions get biblical, whip out the Lib Tech Birdman FDBTX HP Snowboard, a board that makes snow from all over the world laughably easy and ridiculously fun to ride. The Birdman features an all-terrain shape with a Floatation Device (FD) nose resulting in an unsinkable ride when cruising through waist deep pow. This board also features Lib Tech s Horsepower Construction, which gets rid of traditional fiberglass and uses Volcanic Organic basalt fibers - the result is a lightweight ride that remains lively no matter how deep and heavy the snow gets. Topped off with Magne-Traction edges and Bio Beans Spark Topsheet, the Birdman is the ultimate ice eating powder flotation device. *Note: This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.*
BTX: Banana Tech Revolutionary all terrain freestyle banana blend. Rocker between your feet with flat to mild camber to contact points. Mild tip pressure generates unreal float and jibbing, solid pressure between your feet for easy turning and great ice edge hold.
Flex 6.5-7 (depending on size) A stiff aggressive flex designed to provide stability off of big take offs and excellent response for cruising through powder.
Directional Twin Geometries This effortless freestyle and freeride geometry starts with a Twin chassis (from contact to contact) but with an ever so slightly longer nose than tail that allows the board to float on powder and blast through crud. It's a Twin with an advantage.
FD "Floation Device" Pow Nose Extended and elevated nose gives you increased float in pow by staying above the snow.
Columbian Gold Fast growing farmed wood from south of the border with ultra light, strong and long lively fibers
Basalt Volcanic, organic, additive-free reinforcements are made from Mother Nature's finest minerals. Flex modulus is synchronized with Lib Tech's resin system for maximum strength and minimum weight.
Power Transfer Internal Sidewalls The PTIS are lightweight internal sidewalls made from Birchwood to add durability where you need it the most.
UHMW External Sidewalls Ultra High Molecular Weight exterior sidewalls made from soy-based elastomer are laminated to five internal wood layers for totally bombproof sidewalls.
Die-cut Base Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
TNT Low maintenance Teflon Titanium speed base
Magne-Traction When snow hasn't fallen in a while, or it was so light and fluffy it blew away, Magne-Traction will save the day. Magne-Traction's strategic 7-point serrated edge technology provides unreal control and edge hold in all conditions.
Bio-Beans Sparkle Topsheet Biopolymer made from castor bean oil is displays graphics beautifully in an environmentally friendly manner.

Comments about Lib Tech Birdman FDBTX HP Snowboard - Blem 2014:
First time on a Lib Tech, and first magna-traction edged board and man, what a difference! Floats weightless in Pow and when you set an edge in hardpack it does not slip an inch.
This is the best riding board I've ever experienced, can't stop thinking about the freedom and confidence that comes with that edge grip!
Not the fastest base I'e ever ridden, but the control and feel more than make up for it.
