Mark Landvik worked with the Lib Tech experiMENTAL crew to refine the high-speed power freestyle snowboard geometries. C2 banana camber combo contours combined with bamboo 3-D risers and a clear bio beans top. Lando filmed in the world’s heaviest conditions with Travis on the three year Red Bull project with this one. The Phoenix Lando offers the creative freedom that can only come with complete confidence in your equipment. The Lando won’t let you down.
This board is suited for riders who want to bring their freestyle riding to the whole mountain, with a board that has a strong and long lasting pop.
This directional twin will provide you with some extra float in the deep fluffy stuff while still providing excellent switch riding capabilities. Due to the setback of the bindings towards the tail, the nose gets a little bit longer, while the shape of nose and tail is still symmetric. 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 C2 profile means rocker between your feet with a strongly pronounced camber towards the contact points on tip and tail. Precise perfection in turning, jibbing and unreal float in pow combined with a tip to tail control, power, and pop of camber.
The flex on the Lando Phoenix is medium/firm, this gives the board a balanced feel. It’s hard enough to stay in control on hard charged mountain lines or bigger kickers, but it still has enough flex for advanced powder buttering.
The 'Horsepower construction' HP is lighter than the 'Original Power Construction' OP, environmentally nicer due to the usage of bio beans and basalt fiber and offers an extremely smooth ride. The core consists of a strong Aspen spine with Columbian Gold on either side for a crisp pop and a Bamboo Riser which is super responsive. The combination of organic, volcanic basalt fibers with Bi-ax fiberglass and Texalium surrounds the wood core and offers a lively, poppy ride. The TnT Base features a fast and low maintenance dual layered fluoro base material. Wax it or maybe skip a day. 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 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 Bio Beans Topsheet features a tough and eco-sublimated layer to complete the construction.
This board is also available in 'Medium 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.
