Product Info

Big dudes who ride progressively and want to lighten the load on their feet will love the Lib Tech Skunk Ape C2BTX HP Wide Snowboard. Resident Lib “Big Dude” Kyle Phillips insisted that jumbo-sized riders need lightweight construction since their boards are always wider to start with, and Lib Tech delivered. C2 Power Banana shaping puts the power of rocker under your feet, and a directional twin geometry and Power Transfer sidewalls keep it real.

Product Details

Rocker Type

C2 BTXC2 Banana Tech Camber Combo has Banana Rocker between your feet for hard carving goodness plus full camber at tip and tail for precision and stability.

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

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

Laminates

Horsepower Construction100% Basalt (no traditional fiberglass) is reinforced, lively and damp

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.

Topsheet

Bio-Plastic BeansA bio-plastic top skin made from beans that features the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any top sheet in the industry

Comments about Lib Tech Skunk Ape C2BTX HP Wide Snowboard 2013:

First and foremost this is my first board. I have always rented my equipment. I decided it was time to suck it up and buy my own. I was a skateboarder for 15 years so balls have never been my problem. One thing I learned is that you want your equipment to disappear so that you are free to chase your dreams as you see fit. On to the board.

This board is not technically recommended for me. I'm 6'2 165lbs and I wear 10-10.5. However my K2 Raiders are 11. I chose a wide board because I love lean angle. My theory was that the wider the board, the more lean you get without toe drag. Combine this with Magna Traction and it never lets go even on ice. The power banana makes transitioning from side to side a snap. And the light weight noise and tail make the board move faster laterally. There are many other very good qualities to this board that I don't have the experience to verify but Travis Rice rides for Lib.. Need I say more?

My final thought on the board goes to the company who makes it. USA born and bred. Produced by snowboarders who ride them. Support local including the fantastic company who sold it to me. Cheers to EVO
