Product Info

Lib Tech’s crew of oversized in-house caged apes and an equally mammoth group of Washington and Oregon powder nuts worked hard to make the Lib Tech Skunk Ape C2BTX Wide Snowboard, the best big guy power freestyle board in the universe. With sustainably farmed Columbian Gold wood cores, basalt / fiberglass reinforcing fibers, and Power Transfer internal sidewalls, this board is where Sumo meets Snowboarding. Note: This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.

Product Details

Rocker Type

C2 Power Banana Camber (C2 BTX)Rocker between your feet blended with a radial camber to contact points focuses pressure between your feet for easy turns, great edge hold on ice, and a solid amount of pressure to the tip and tails for power end-to-end stability, pop, and maximum control in critical situations while maintaining float.

Flex

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)7

Shape

Directional Twin GeometriesThis 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.

Core

Columbian Gold CoreExperimental new dead tree with the highest compression response ever used in a snowboard

Laminates

BasaltBasalt is produced in a clean, pure process consisting of high heat and absent of toxic additives. Not only is it safer for humans, it’s easier to recycle. Basalt fiber has strength properties much higher than fiberglass and better damping properties for a smooth ride.

Sidewalls

Power Transfer Internal SidewallsTip-to-tail internal "sidewalls" with end-grain orientation transfer energy directly to your edges.

Double Sintered UHMW SidewallsTwice as sintered as any other sidewall: tough, handsome, and light

Base

Sintered UHMWSuper tough base material that 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.

Comments about Lib Tech Skunk Ape C2BTX Wide Snowboard - Blem 2013:

I was worried to buy a board that I had not ridden yet, especially a bizzaro camber board (I had only ridden traditional camber)but pulled the trigger anyway. I'm glad I did. Size 11.5 Salomon f24s have enough room at 15 degrees each foot duck stance that i can lay down mean carves. Like elbow to the snow carves- trice style.

I'm light at 165 6 foot 3 but I still get all the flex I need from it.

Had the blem sticker on it but they must have super high standards, because me and my buddy could find nothing wrong. Don't hesitate to get a blem.
I'll be buying the HP version next year.

      Comments about Lib Tech Skunk Ape C2BTX Wide Snowboard - Blem 2013:

      I was devastated when I blew my 2010 skunk ape falling off a cliff. This new 2013 model is the exact same with additional pop, more stability and for my riding style the best board I've ever owned. Great on the groomer days, great for a big guy like me (6'4", 240 lbs) and I can still float in POW with a 161W. Gives me the versatility of jibbing, jumping, riding groomers and shredding POW POW gnar til to my hearts content. I have had the most amazing lines using this board and hope to make a 172W skunk ape into my next split board. Awesome, durable, stable, super poppy... I can go on. Love this one! Great job Lib!

        Comments about Lib Tech Skunk Ape C2BTX Wide Snowboard - Blem 2013:

        I have never owned a Lib Tech prior to purchasing the Skunk Ape 165. I have been missing out. I am 6'2", weigh 220 lbs and have a size 13 foot. This board is top notch in every single way. It's a big guys board, but it's not heavy and it's super easy to maneuver - and man does it hold its edges. The banana rocker is just silly reliable and the magna traction is rad in all conditions. Do yourself a favor, big guys, buy this board. Abandon what you think you know about the mainstream, most marketed companies like Burton and Ride and go for the Lib Tech. I've been riding for 20 years and have had dozens of decks (Burton, Ride, K2, Forum, etc). This is by far the most superior product I've strapped to my feet.

            Great board from lib-tech. Because the board is so wide, you can opt for a shorter length, and it still rides fast. I'm 6'1" and went with the 157 length and was not disappointed at all. Magna traction holds like a charm. Only thing that takes getting used to is transitioning from edge to edge, especially on shallow lines. After a couple days of use, you get accustomed to it. Go lib-tech!

                    So this is my first "quality" board. Had ridden a Ride Antic and a friends old Ride DH before this. I am 6' 195lbs with size 13 boots so I really wanted a board made for bigger feet and heavier guys and went with the 161cm. Looked into it for a while and this board kept coming up as people's favorites, or at least a basis for comparison. Have to say I have loved it so far. Only been up with it 4 times but 2 were great powder days and the other 2 were groomer days where I was able to hike with it a bit. Compared to what I was riding before, this board is worlds apart in the powder. Really like the C2BTX. Noticed it immediately and made the day a lot more enjoyable. I am also one to be a little rough on my gear don't have any real dings in it so far, so I would say it is pretty durable even though it hasn't been through a whole season yet.

                    On the groomer days it was pretty good. The magne-traction is great when you are on some steep ice but I will say I noticed it slowing me down a bit when I came up to flat groomers. Nothing terrible, but something to keep in mind I guess. I know there is also the horsepower version which is lighter and though I haven't been able to ride one, I will say that the weight of this wasn't something I noticed too much. Felt a little heavier than the other boards I have ridden but it is also bigger and stronger.

                    Overall, it has been great. Big board that was a lot of fun in the powder and really stable on icy groomers.

                      All in all great board. Got a 172. Glad it was a gift, I was looking at 169. Doesn't feel too long and moves well through all sorts of conditions. A little unstable at high speed, but the edge will hold. Just bear down and go. Have fun. Cheers.

                        I use this board for everything, although I tend to stay out of the park, its a super fast and super stable board, carves better than any other board Ive ridden (which is a lot).

                        This is my second Lib Tech, even though they are more money, they are worth every penny, they make you a better rider, everything is easier on them. If you aren't a daily rider (resort is 15 mins from my house- and i have a ski pass), I would not buy this board.. It is meant for advanced riders.. But if you do ride a lot, I absolutely would get this board.
