Big guys need light set ups, their snowboards are always big, wide and long so a light construction makes a big difference in every terrain. That's why LIB Tech uses the super lightweight Horsepower construction at the Skunk Ape, for the best possible strength-to-weight ratio. The most important thing, however, is that toe- and heel drag of even the largest boots becomes a thing of the past.
This extra wide board is suited for large riders who want to bring their freestyle riding to the whole mountain. The directional twin shape offers more float in the powder while the lightweight construction supports your freestyle park riding.
This directional twin provides you with some extra float in the powder and excellent switch riding capabilities. Due to the setback of the bindings towards the tail, the nose gets a little bit longer. However, the nose and the tail are equally wide, so landing switch is no problem. The Magne-Traction serrated edges give great edge hold all over the mountain, especially on hard pack and ice.
C2 means rocker between the bindings combined with radial cambers under the bindings. This combination offers good edge hold thanks to the camber underfoot, as well as great float in powder and unlimited freestyle action without hang-ups thanks to the rocker.
The medium-stiff flex provides you with a lively board that allows you to stay in control at all speeds and pop over everything.
The 'Horsepower construction' HP is lighter than the 'Original Power Construction' OP, environmentally nicer due to the usage of bio beans and basalt fibre and offers an extremely smooth ride. The Aspen and Paulownia wood core is robust with a lot of pop. The top sheet is made of Eco-sublimated bio beans. The TNT Base is very fast and requires little maintenance.
This board is also available in 'Ultra Wide' version. These are wider than wide boards and developed especially for snowboarders with large feet 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.
