Lib Tech Snowboard Technology

Innovations are something we actually do understand. Lib Tech is the collective energy of 30+ years of board building and riding. Each year our experiMENTAL Division handbuilds new shapes, flexes, contours, blends, constructions, incorporates new materials and works with our pros and doing hands on testing refining and fine tuning our snowboards. Some times it’s radical concepts that turn snowboarding upside down like we did with Banana Tech Rocker in 2006 or Magne-Traction® Serrated edges in 2002. Some times it’s more subtle contour steps like the new high performance XC2 camber rocker combination. Over the past couple of years we have been working with riders like Jamie Lynn looking back at traditional camber designs. Ski camber mis-applied to snowboards never quite satisfied, but camber re-engineered to include subtle banana rocker contours and applied properly to snowboarding’s two feet inputing energy and control bio mechanical model has some real performance merits for the aggressive skilled snowboarder. This year we applied C3 camber dominant banana to three different models in the line. The Darker Series, the new Hot Knife and of course Jamie Lynn’s Phoenix. The world’s best camber snowboard has rocker built into it! Ride a Banana!

Les innovations font partie de notre histoire. Lib Tech est l’énergie collective de plus de 30 ans de ride et de fabrication de boards. Chaque année notre division experiMENTAL fabrique à la main de nouveaux shapes, flex, profils et constructions, intègre de nouveaux matériaux, collabore avec nos pros et teste et ajuste jusqu’à la perfection nos snowboards. Parfois ce sont des concepts radicaux qui révolutionnent le snowboard comme le Banana Tech Rocker en 2006 ou les carres Magne-Traction® Serrated edges en 2002. Parfois ce sont des évolutions plus subtiles comme la nouvelle combinaison rocker cambre haute performance XC2. Ces dernières années nous avons travaillé avec des riders comme Jamie Lynn sur des designs de cambres plus traditionnels. Un cambre de skis appliqué aux snowboards n’était pas la solution. Mais un cambre re-développé en incluant un subtil rocker Banana et adapté correctement aux propriétés de ride sur deux pieds, impliquant une énergie et un contrôle bio-mécanique unique, a permis d’apporter une véritable amélioration des performances pour les snowboarders agressifs. Cette année nous avons étendu le Banana au cambre dominant C3 à trois différents modèles de la gamme. La Darker Series, la nouvelle Hot Knife et bien sûr la Phoenix de Jamie Lynn. La meilleure board avec cambre bénéficie désormais d’un rocker ! Ride une Banana !

Mit Innovationen kennen wir uns bestens aus. Lib Tech vereint die Energie von über 30 Jahren Board building und Riding. Jedes Jahr werden neue Shapes, Flex, Konturen, Kompositionen und Konstruktionen von unserer experimetierFREUDIGen Division handgefertigt. Dazu gehört die Verwendung neuester Materialien und die Zusammenarbeit mit unseren Pros, die die Snowboards testen, mitgestalten und beim Finetuning mitwirken. Manchmal sind es ganz radikale Konzepte, wie der Banana Tech Rocker in 2006 oder die Magne-Traction® Serrated Edges in 2002, die die Snowboardwelt auf den Kopf stellen. Es können aber auch dezentere Neuheiten, wie zum Beispiel die brandneue High Performance XC2 Camber Rocker Kombination, sein. In den vergangenen Jahren haben wir mit Snowboardern wie Jamie Lynn zusammengearbeitet und sind zurück zum traditionellen Camber Design gegangen. Die Anwendung von Ski-Camber auf Snowboards war nie eine wirkliche Lösung. Doch das neu designte Camber, welches den dezenten Banana Rocker integriert, passt sich perfekt an den Stance im Snowboarden an. Die dabei einfließende Energie und biomechanische Kontrolle bieten echte Performance für den Snowboarder mit radikalen Skills. Dieses Jahr haben wir das C3 Banana-Camber auf drei verschiedene Modelle aus unserer Serie angewendet. Auf die Darker Series, das neue Hot Knife und natürlich auf Jamie Lynns Phoenix. Das beste Camber Snowboard der Welt kommt jetzt auch mit Rocker! Ride a Banana!

Las innovaciones son algo de lo que realmente entendemos. Lib Tech cuenta con más de 30 años de experiencia haciendo y probando tablas de snow. Cada año, nuestra División experiMENTAL fabrica a mano nuevos diseños, formas, flexiones, contornos, construcciones… incorporando nuevos materiales y trabajando mano a mano con nuestros profesionales para poder precisar y refinar nuestras tablas de snow. A veces aparecen conceptos revolucionarios que nos hacen ver el snowboard de otro modo, como hicimos con la tecnología Banana Tech Rocker en 2006 o con los cantos Magne-Traction® en 2002. A veces estos cambios son más sutiles, como el diseño XC2 camber/rocker de alto rendimiento. Durante estos últimos años hemos estado trabajando con riders como Jamie Lynn mirando hacia atrás a algunos diseños camber tradicionales. Los diseños camber provenientes del esquí nunca nos han satisfecho, pero el camber re-diseñado con contornos sutiles banana, que se adaptan a la biomecánica y energía típicas del snowboard, proporciona mejoras sustanciales para los snowboarders energéticos y experimentados. Este año hemos aplicado un diseño C3 camber con contorno banana dominante a tres modelos diferentes de la línea. La Darker Series, la nueva Hot Knife y, por supuesto, la Phoenix de Jamie Lynn. ¡La mejor tabla de snowboard camber del mundo tiene rocker incorporado! ¡Hazte con una Banana!

We worked with Travis Rice to develop this perfectly balanced all terrain contour. Mild rocker between your feet with powerful cambers to the tips and tails. Enough power pop and precision to technically hit the biggest wedges, enough float and freedom to rip the gnarliest AK pow lines. Carves the resort, plays in the park, and slays powder.

THE ORIGINAL ROCKER/CAMBER HYBRID CONTOURS. EFFORTLESS CONTROL.
PATENT #7823892 #8511704
PERFORMANCE HYBRID BOTTOM CONTOURS ENGINEERED FOR SNOWBOARDING. (Camber is a very old primitive ski contour engineered to maximize performance of a one foot on one board tool). Snowboarding is done with two feet on one board in a sideways stance (unless you are Jesse Burtner). Banana Technology combines mild rockers between your feet with very speci c amounts of camber to the contact points. The rocker brings to life the middle of your board that with traditional camber is a low pressure “dead zone”. The cambers out to the tips and tail fine tune the pressure map, add pop, tip and tail stability, precision and control.

Jamie Lynn and Fredi Kalbermatten love this power contour. (The C always stood for camber) Very mild rocker between your feet with powerful cambers to the tips and tails. This is camber engineered for snowboarding: maximizing edge hold, pop, power and precision with the benefit of little extra float and carve when you need it. Perfect for aggressive snowboarding.
