Product Info

The evil Lib Tech Darker Series C3BTX Snowboard is equipped with 3D Bamboo binding platforms and organic torsion boxes to transfer power control and energy from your bindings directly to your edges and stiffen your board at your feet for stomped landings and control in critical terrain. With transfer spines for precise response and big pop and the new C3 Camber Dominant Banana profile, aggressive all terrain freestyle rippers should get ready for some wicked fun! *Note: This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.*

Product Details

Mild pressure between your feet for carving, edge grip, and float in powder is combined with Lib Tech's maximum tip and tail pressure for precise control, power stability and pop.

Flex

Flex Rating: 7.5 (depending on size): A stiff aggressive flex designed to provide stability on big take offs and excellent response for cruising through powder.

Shape

        Comments about Lib Tech Darker Series C3BTX Snowboard - Blem 2014:

        delivery of this board was super fast. The blemish that it had was 1 small dimple on the front of the board and if you hadn't put a sticker next to it showing me that was the problem it would have taken me quite a while to find it. The blem board was really just as good as the as the board without the small blemish. Haven't started Riding this new darker series yet not enough coverage on the mountain. I will update this review after I ride this beast down the hill.

                        I ride primarily in the east and the Magnatraction's hold is great on the ice.On the occasional powder day the board also shines due to the reverse camber. If you are not inclined to have a quiver of boards for different conditions, this should be the one for an all mountain rider.

                          I am an all mountain rider who loves to find some pow and tear it up through some steep and deep stuff. But not every day here in the PNW is all time conditions... unless your riding this board. The magne traction lets me tear through any terrain and the bamboo platforms/ tension boxes feel like i have shock in my board. Smooth ride and great pop! I love Lib Tech I think those guys make some rad stuff and I would recommend this board highly. Not for beginners but if you love to grip and rip this is your board! Hope you enjoy it as much as me!

                            I just ordered the blem of this board a couple of weeks ago. I've been up twice on it and the it is by far the best board I've ever ridden. The blem was a scratch on the top that was hardly noticible. Make sure you have stiffer bindings on this board. First day up I was on my union pros and it took some effort to get a hard edge. I bought some union factories (i think thats right... the travis rice model) and it made the ride amazing. If you're hesitating about the price on this board I can tell you it is well worth the money and you won't be dissapointed depending on your riding style/what you like to do.
