This year's Retro Ripper is Matt Biolos' Japan inspired design with a wider directional shape and a fast sintered Knife Cut base. It's absolutely ideal for backcountry powder and rough terrain thanks to its swallow tail design and C3 camber profile with early rise keeping your tail down and your nose up through the deep stuff.

C3 Camber Rocker Profile - Using mild rocker between your feet with powerful camber sections towards the tip and tail, this provides maximum edge hold and stability at high speeds while maintaining unmatched float and precision for expressive freestyle riding in powder and across the whole mountain.
Control / Precision / Power
Original Power Plus Construction (OP+) - 75% Aspen, 25% Paulownia plus a sintered base.
Bi-axial Fiberglass - This 2-way fiber orientation is engineered to provide maximum snap while decreasing chatter.
Tri-axial Fiberglass - This 3-way fiber orientation is engineered to increase snap and decrease vibrations for a smoother, more stable ride.
Eco-Sub Bio Beans Topsheet - Using a new earth-friendly, bio-plastic top skin made from beans that feature the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any top sheet in the industry.
Sintered Base - This highly durable base has excellent wax retention thanks to its high porosity.
Mervin Made: EnvironMENTAL Construction - Core materials are sources from fast-growing, renewable forest products. Water-based solvents used for cleansing instead of petrochemical-based solvents. All wood sawdust is recycled as a soil additive, plus scrap wood is donated to a local Mood Wood company that packages it as kindling and resells it.
Handbuilt in the USA - Every Lib Tech board is handmade by snowboarders with jobs in the USA.
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.
Magne-Traction Serrated Edges - Strategically placed bumps that create added contact points along each edge for increased grip and control in all conditions. Turn ice into powder.
Birch Internal Sidewalls - Rugged, lightweight, vertical end grain Birch internal sidewalls add pop and durability.
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.
