The Box Knife is creative and jib focused but with an analytical approach to precise pop, added power, stability, and aggression. Jesse Burtner and Ted Borland’s go to backcountry kicker and all mountain park board. Fun and lively with pure presses and muscles up for bumpy run-ins and run-outs. Sometimes you need a scratcher and sometimes a knife.
Freestyle - From rails and kickers in the park and booters in the backcountry to street rails at night.
This snowboard comes in a Twin Freestyle shape. Tip and tail are of equal length and width combined with a centred radial sidecut. The snowboard rides equally well in both directions with a focus on jib, freestyle, park, powder and pipe. The Magne-Traction serrated edges give great edge hold all over the mountain, especially on hard pack and ice. They turn ice into powder.
The C3 profile features a mild rocker between the feet while the rest of the board is profiled like a standard camber. This profile offers an aggressive ride that provides a lot of control and response in every terrain. The mild rocker will give the board just a little bit more playfulness and float than standard camber profiles, while not compromising the positive properties of camber. Some benefits for the advanced riders are precise edge control, maximum stability for high jumps and landings and fast lines.
The flex of this board is happy in the medium, perfect to shred everything, stable enough to go fast and big, yet flexible enough to press and butter.
The original power construction OP is a very lightweight, environmentally nice and strong construction design of Lib Tech. The core consists of a strong Aspen spine with Columbian Gold on either side, giving you a strong and light core with a crisp pop. Bi-ax and Tri-Ax glass surrounds the wood core and adds the needed stiffness and durability. Birch Internal Sidewalls are placed along the sidewall of your board to add board control to the sandwich construction. Stronger, more pop, and more control. The sintered Base is compression hardened amorphous UHMW skived from the billet to create the toughest, fastest, best wax holding base material around. Slides best and fastest when waxed regularly to match local snow conditions. The UHMW Sintered Sidewalls are a Lib Tech innovation. Twice as sintered as any other sidewall. Tough, fast, hard, waterproof, handsome and light. NO TOXIC ABS! Due to the edges, which do not go throughout at tip and tail, these areas are protected by a 'UHMW Tip/Tail impact deflection' system to avoid damage. Finally, the Eco Sublimated Poly Topsheet features a tough and eco-sublimated layer to complete the construction.
This board is also available in 'Wide' version. These are wider than normal boards and developed especially for snowboarders with large feet (EU size 44+) to avoid too much overhang of the boots. Wider boards also give you better float in powder.
For some 30+ years, Lib Tech has been pushing the limits of innovation in the surf and snow sports industry. With their production still based in the US, they set out to do something different. With new shapes and technologies each year, Lib Tech want riders to have a grin on their face when using their products. A company that never stops changing is something we hugely admire, and doing so whilst keeping an eye on the environment will give you a big thumbs up from us any day of the week.
