Fredi Kalbermatten wanted an all-terrain freestyle stick that was precise, powerful, playful, jibby, carvy and kills it when the pow gets good. Fredi and LibTechs experiMENTAL division combined a floaty nose with a C3 camber to create his dream stick.
This board is ideal for intermediate to advanced riders who are looking for an aggressive board to bring their freestyle riding to big mountain terrain.
A Tapered Directional board is the best for all-mountain and freeriding. The nose is longer and wider than the tail, giving you plenty of control in any terrain. The Magne-Traction® serrated edges give great edge hold all over the mountain, especially on hard pack and ice.
The C3 profile is a classic camber profile with a mild rocker between the bindings. This offers precise edge control from nose to tail and maximum stability for high airs and landings. The mild rocker makes the board a bit more playful and offers more float than conventional camber profiles.
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 is the first upgrade in Lib Techs constructions. The Core consists of 60% aspen and 40% paulownia, giving you a strong and light core with a crisp pop. Bi-ax and Tri-Ax Glass as well as Basalt Alloy surround the wood core and add 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 Eco Sublimated Sintered Base is fast and durable. The UHMW Sintered Sidewalls are a Lib Tech innovation. Twice as sintered as any other sidewalls, tough, fast, hard, waterproof, handsome and light. NO TOXIC ABS! As edges do not go throughout at tip and tail, these areas are protected by a UHMW Tip/Tail Impact Deflection system to avoid damage. The Lightweight Spin Slim Tip / Tail gives the Swiss Knife the extra portion of freestyle performance. Finally, the Eco Sublimated Bio Beans Topsheet features a tough and eco-sublimated layer to complete the construction.
