Product Info

Mom never liked you playing with knives, and if she knew the power that existed within the Lib Tech Hot Knife C3 BTX Snowboard she would ban it too. Unsheathe the Hot Knife on groomers and strap-in for one hell of a ride. The C3 BTX paired with Magne-Traction™ .5 means this deck enjoys lapping the park or your local side country without touching the brakes for maxed-out speeds, minimal chatter and razor-sharp control. The Hot Knife was handbuilt in the USA through an environmentally-friendly manufacturing process so you can enjoy a season of trail bombing while feeling good about a carbon footprint!
