The Skunk Ape is a mythical, illusive creature thought to inhabit South East regions such as Florida, Arkansas and North Carolina, but this extraordinary beast can be found slaying big mountains in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Just because big guys need big boards, that doesn't mean they don't want them to be lightweight and nimble without sacrificing strength and width. Horse Power construction is perfect for the bigger freestyler or Powder Ape when they're on the chair, spinning or slashing pow. It's lighter and more durable thanks to all basalt (no fiberglass) construction and a Columbian Gold Core with bio-beans topsheet. Add Magne-Traction to this wide twin board and you've got the ultimate ride for the larger gentleman, the Lib Tech Skunk Ape C2BTX HP Snowboard. Also available in ultra wide!
C2 BTX: Power Banana / Camber Blend Travis Rice's favorite camber rocker blend for aggressive power snowboarders. Solid tip and tail pressure for power, pop, precision and end-to-end stability combines with a medium amount of pressure between your feet for float, carving and edge hold.
Flex 7 A stiff aggressive flex designed to provide stability on 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.
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.
Sintered Fast, tough, maximum wax retention
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 Skunk Ape C2BTX HP Snowboard 2014:
We need some snow and then I can ride this beast. Hoping for more solid landings off of cliffs into Pow as I am 6'2" and still have an issue with the short nose on the 164.5 T-rice. I was hunting for a board with an extra nose length and think I found it in the 169 Skunk Ape HP!
Pumped and just want to ride!!!
