C3 Camber/Banana Rocker Profile - Trapezoidal camber enhanced with Banana Tech for aggressive new traditionalists and weight lifters. Focuses a mild amount of pressure between your feet for carving, edge grip on ice and float in powder. Provides maximum pressure at the tip and tails for power and end-to-end stability.
Magne-Traction Serrated Edges - Award-winning Magne-Traction features strategically placed bumps that create seven contact points along each side of your sidecut. This increases edge hold and allows for knife-like carves without the hook. Magne-Traction is a perfect complement to Banana Rocker and helps increase grip and control.
Original Power Construction (OP) - Light, environmentally nice, and strong, the Original Power (OP) construction is used on more Lib boards than any other construction. Renewable core woods keep it light and eco-friendly while ultra high molecular weight (UHMW) material is used in the sidewalls as well as the tip and tail to deflect impacts and make your ride noticeably smoother.
Specific to the OP+ construction, Lib uses a sintered base vs the traditional extruded TNT base and the shock absorbing bio-bean topsheet. This increases damping and speed.
Handbuilt in the USA - Every Lib Tech board is handmade by snowboarders with jobs in the USA.
Aspen Wood - Light, strong, lively, fast growing, heat treated for maximum pop and long life.
Columbian Gold Wood - A lightweight, renewable wood core with loads of pop! This core provides increased response for precise turns when carving.
Birch Internal Sidewalls - Rugged, lightweight, vertical end grain Birch internal sidewalls add pop and durability where you need it when things get hard.
Bi-axial Fiberglass - This 2-way fiber orientation is engineered to increase snap and decrease chatter.
Tri-axial Fiberglass - This 3-way fiber orientation is engineered to provide maximum snap while decreasing chatter.
Sintered Base - This durable base has excellent wax retention thanks to its high porosity. For best results, wax with One Ball Jay.
Transworld Good Wood Award Winner - Selected as a Good Wood winner by Transworld Magazine - chosen for quality snowboard construction and rideability.
Eco-Sub PBT Top Sheet - Sounds technical right? It just means the top sheet is made from sublimated polyester material that's great for vibrant yet durable graphics, which means a long lasting image. When the graphics are as good as Gnu's you'll be glad you have it.
UHMW Sintered Sidewalls - A Lib Tech innovation that is twice as sintered as most industry sidewalls. This ultra high molecular weight (UHMW) material increases durability, response and control for easier riding.
Mervin Made: EnvironMENTAL Construction - All Lib Tech snowboards are handcrafted by Mervin Manufacturing in the USA near Canada!
Mervin has been environmentally aware from the beginning - 25+ years!
No cancer-causing toxic automotive lacquer clearcoats.
Soy-based elastomer sidewalls instead of toxic ABS.
Made using renewable forest products for all snowboard cores. Fast growing trees have long fibers and natural pop. Wood is nature's fiberglass!
Made with only low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) epoxy resin systems. Mervin's resin doesn't stink or make you dizzy.
Mervin uses water-cleansed grinding systems to minimize airborne particulate levels.
The Mervin Factory has 2700% air replacement ventilation systems.
All wood sawdust is recycled as soil additive, plus scrap wood is donated to a local Mood Wood company that packages it as kindling and resells it.
All scrap plastics (base cutouts, etc) are recycled and then reground to make new materials.
Water-based solvents used for cleansing (instead of petrochemical-based solvents).
Canola-based biodiesel heats the Mervin factory and is a renewable resource.
1 Year Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for 1 year from the time of purchase. Warranty includes structural defects only and DOES NOT cover impact damage, abuse, misuse or normal wear and tear expected from aggressive riding.
Sorry folks, but bashing your board on a rock or rail does not qualify as a "manufacturer's defect" and will not be honored.
