Technology

  • C2 BTX: Power Banana Camber / Banana Blend

    Our favorite camber rocker blend for aggressive power snowboarders. Solid tip and tail pressure for power, pop, precision and end-to-end stability combined with a medium amount of pressure between your feet for float, carving and edge hold.

  • MTX: Magne-Traction

    Seven points of focused edge control. Magne-Traction’s strategic serrations provide unreal edge hold and control in all conditions. Winner of over 30 Good Wood awards. Ridden to Olympic gold medals, Air and Style championships, King of Hill, X Games Street gold, Supernatural victory and Ted Borland’s backwoods jibs.

Ingredients

  • Basalt / Fiberglass Combo

    Strong light Volcanic organic additive free fiber reinforcements. Flex modulus is synchronized with our resin system for maximum strength and minimum weight. Damp, strong, and lively for a smooth poppy ride. Our favorite fiber.

  • Handcrafted in the USA near Canada!

    BITCHIN’ BOARD BUILDERS We build snowboards. We build snowboards. No really… that is what we do. We don’t order them from China or anywhere else and send someone to go check and see how they turned out. We physically hand build them right here at home in the USA.

  • Directional Twin

    Effortless freestyle and freeride geometry. Twin chassis (from contact to contact) but with an ever so slightly longer nose than tail. Floats on powder and blasts thru crud, a Twin with an advantage.

  • Columbian Gold Core

    Fast growing farmed wood from south of the border. Ultra light, strong, long lively fibers.

    CORE: Mervin cores milled right at our factory are made from select species of fast growing long fibered farmed eco timbers. Wood is nature’s fiberglass!

  • Correct Sandwich

    SUPER LIGHT SPIN WEIGHT! The perfect blend of pickles and mustard. UHMW sidewalls, Power Transfer Internal Sidewalls, torsionally loose. The new kids think they are new!

  • Double Sintered UHMW Sidewalls

    A Lib Tech innovation. Twice as sintered as any other sidewall. Tough, fast, hard, waterproof, handsome and light. NO TOXIC ABS!

  • Eco Sublimation

    Mervin’s unique water based graphic process. No toxic solvents or curtain coats used in manufacturing process. If a snowboard has a thick clear glossy on top it was really toxic to make. Lib Tech gives you an environmentally friendly alternative. NO TOXIC SOLVENT BASED INKS OR CLEAR COATS.

  • Co-Ex PBT Top

    Tough, Eco-sublimated compatible.

  • Tri-Ax / Bi-Ax Fiberglass Combo

    Perfect blend of Tri-Ax: 45° 45° 90° Fiber foundation torsion enhancing pop amplifier and Bi-Ax: 0° 90° Fiber foundation flexible pop magnifier.

  • TnT Base Material

    Fast and low maintenance dual layered fluoro base material. Wax it or maybe skip a day. Use Oneballjay snowboard wax.

  • Power Transfer Internal Sidewalls

    The same futuristic power 90º pop technology from our world record setting skateboards and power transfer spines only this time we have placed it along the sidewall of your board to add board control to our sandwich construction. Stronger, more pop, and more control brought to you by our Woodshop!
