Lib Tech Lib Ripper BTX Snowboard - Youth 2012

A skate banana for groms, the Lib Tech Lib Ripper BTX Snowboard is built for total rocker progression. With all the high-tech LibTech technologies of adult boards, the Lib Ripper has Banana rocker and Magne-Traction for a catch-free ride, easy turning and great edge hold.
Rocker Type
Banana Rocker Technology (BTX) - Applies more pressure inward to the edge area at and between your feet. While your stance presses out the rocker, the tip and tail still make enough contact for enough stability without sacrificing float.
 
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - 3-4, perfect for young gromlets ready to take snowboarding further than ever before with a flex they can handle
Shape
True Twin - Absolutely perfect twin geometry, tried and true science with Banana Technology
Core
H-Pop - A Wood Alloy core made of experimental new, dead tree with the highest compression response ever used in a snowboard. It has half the glue weight and absorbs less resin weight.
Sidewalls
Power Transfer Internal Sidewalls - Tip-to-tail internal "sidewalls" with end-grain orientation transfer energy directly to your edges.
Base
Sintered UHMW - A super tough and holds wax well due to its compression-formed amorphous polymer structure.
Edges
Magne-Traction™ - Serrated edges slice through the snow with 7 strategically located and sized bumps along each side of your sidecut giving you insane edge hold and precision control. The biggest bumps are at and between your feet where your balance is centered adding maximum control and power where you need it most. The bumps outside your feet are smaller and less aggressive providing tip and tail control but maintaining freestyle freedom.
 

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freestyle
    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.
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • Ability Level: Beginner-Intermediate
    Beginner-Intermediate
    Someone who is new to the sport or working on linking smoother turns falls into this ability level. Typical beginner ski/snowboard qualities include: softer materials, narrower widths, and capped constructions. The idea is to create a ride that is easy to turn and very forgiving in case you become off balance or fall in the back seat. The addition of rocker in the tip and tail gives a catch-free feeling and shorter contact length when the ski/snowboard is flat on the snow, making it easier to turn.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker
    Rocker
    A rocker board side profile is the opposite of a camber board, with a smooth downward curvature to it and less edge contact length when the board is weighted. Rocker boards float well in powder and pivot more easily underfoot. They also tend to be less “hooky” at both tip and tail and better for landing spin maneuvers when you don’t quite have enough rotation.
  • Flex Rating: Medium
    Medium
    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.
