Travis pushes the evolution on snow and with his boards. The Goldmember's Firepower construction is the direct result of his desire for ultralight tip/tails and mid-section of the board while retaining stability for the most demanding terrain. The Goldmember is ready for whatever line you and Travis are.
A freestyle/freeride board for advanced riders. Highest premium performance for backcountry and powder, but also unbeatable as an all-mountain board for your daily snowboarding.
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 camber sections 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 Firepower Construction FP is the ultimate Lib Tech construction design: lighter, environmentally nicer, smoothest. The core consists of 50% Aspen and 40% Paulownia wood for the smoothest riding core with reduced weight and vibration. Additional 10% Balsa wood reduces the weight even more. Tri-Ax Glass as well as Basalt Web add the needed stiffness and precision to the board. The Sintered Eco Sublimated TNT Base is very fast but requires careful maintenance. 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.
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.
