Travis is constantly searching for higher performance in both his riding and his equipment. The Climax is the spawn of the world’s best rider converging with the world’s best board builders’ 30 plus years of board design. A glorious design moment where precision, smoothness, lightweight, pop and power join forces to create pure performance.
This board is designed for advanced riders who like to charge big lines and won’t shy away from a massive air that comes up on their path while demanding the highest quality possible in material, processing, and performance.
This directional shape 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.
C2x means short rocker between the bindings combined with large 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 stability at high speeds and insane amounts of control while offering you the power and flexibility you need to stomp the biggest cliffs.
The Climax construction is Lib Tech's high-end design: lighter, environmentally nicer and liveliest. The Climax features a lightweight, thin tip and tail profile, combined with ultra-tough carbon wrapped in carbon stiffening. The core is made of 20% Aspen and 40% Paulownia wood, combined with 40% balsa for reduced weight and vibration. Instead of using fibreglass, Lib Tech decided to use a carbon over carbon over magnesium fibre. 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 Goldmember the extra portion of freestyle performance. Finally, the Eco Sublimated Bio Beans Topsheet features a tough and eco-sublimated layer to complete the construction. The sintered Base is very fast but requires careful maintenance.
