Lib Tech Hot Knife C3BTX Snowboard 2013

The limited release of Lib Tech's Hot Knife C3BTX Snowboard has taken traditional camber to new heights of performance. The C3 Camber Dominant Banana, Lib Tech's newly applied Banana Tech, is designed for aggressive riders offering the best of both worlds: flotation in powder while riding in either direction, carving on hardpack, and catch-free freestyle performance. Double Sintered UHMW sidewalls and Magne-Traction serrated edges give the Hot Knife C3BTX defense against mangled rails and precise handling in horrendously icy conditions. Get on the Lib Tech Hot Knife C3 Snowboard and see for yourself.
Rocker Type
C3 Camber Dominant Banana - Camber is enhanced with Banana Tech for aggressive new traditionalists and 90s camber studs. Camber is made better than it ever was with the addition of of banana rocker between your feet. It focuses a mild amount of pressure between your feet for carving, edge grip on ice, float in powder, and Lib's maximum amount of pressure out to the tip and tails for super power, end-to-end stability, pop, and control in critical situations.
 
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - 5-6 depending on size, a medium/stiff flex for easy turn initiation and forgiving landings
Sidecut
Magne-Traction - The serrated edges cut into the snow like a knife, giving you more edge hold and control than ever before, featuring 7 strategically located and sized bumps along each side of your sidecut. The biggest bumps are at and between your feet adding maximum control and power, while the bumps outside your feet are smaller and less aggressive providing tip and tail control but maintaining freestyle freedom.
 
Core
Wood Alloy - Experimental new dead tree with the highest compression response ever used in a snowboard has half the glue weight and absorbs less resin weight.
Sidewalls
Double Sintered UHMW - A Lib Tech innovation: Twice as sintered as any other sidewall, this base is tough, handsome, and light.
Base
Sintered UHMW - Super tough base material that holds wax well due to its compression formed amorphous polymer structure.
Binding Compatibility
4x4 Binding Disk

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freeride
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
    Freeride
    Freeride snowboards are designed for the rider that spends most of the day off groomed runs and in backcountry terrain. They typically have a stiffer flex and are ridden in longer sizes than freestyle snowboards. Freeride snowboards often feature a directional shape that is designed to perform optimally in one direction.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Camber/Rocker/Camber
    Camber/Rocker/Camber
    Camber/Rocker/Camber is a profile that’s specific to snowboards and which works because the rider’s weight flattens the two cambered areas. This design produces a strong, pressured carving zone between the rider’s feet and retains pop and carving precision at the tip and tail.
  • Flex Rating: Stiff
    Stiff
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
