The HP in the title stands for "Horse Power". Lib's HP construction is individualized with a TNT base which claims to be the fastest base without wax out there, and a basalt alloy added with the tri-axial and bi-axial fibers to give you the control you want at said top-speed. The C2X profile is going to give you lots of power too. There is an aggressive rocker section in the middle of the board which allows float in the fluff and makes preloading tricks easier while lengthened camber sections sit underfoot so you know you'll have pop when you need it. A favorite for freestyle rippers like Matteo Soltane and technical freeride rippers like Blair Habenicht, this is a progressive board meant to take your skills further than you imagined.
Utilizing nature's renewable resources like the light and snappy Columbian Gold, Aspen and Paulownia woods, a durable bio-synthesized bean topsheet, and smooth UHMW sidewalls in this board helps snowboarding remain a viable industry for future generations as well as pushing the boundaries to find materials that are perfect for taking abuse so you can have a responsive, lively board underfoot year after year.
C2X Power Banana Rocker/Camber Profile - A new formula of C2 with a short, but aggressive Banana rocker combined with cambers that sit underfoot. Extra solid tip and tail pressure for power, pop, precision and end-to-end stability combined with a medium amount of pressure between your feet for carving and edge hold on ice and float in pow.
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.
Horsepower Construction (HP) - Lighter and smoother than Original Power Construction, in the HP construction Ultra high molecular weight (UHMW) materials are used in the sidewalls and tip/tail serving to deflect impacts and smooth out your ride. Overall this construction is considered light, environmentally nice, and smooth.
Note: The HP+ construction adds bamboo risers underneath the binding area for more efficient energy transfer throughout the board.
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.
Paulownia Wood - Ultra light, strong, long lively fibers.
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.
Basalt Fiber Reinforcement - Basalt is volcanic rock produced in a clean, pure process consisting of high heat without toxic additives. Not only is it safer for humans, it’s easier to recycle. Basalt fiber has strength properties much higher than fiberglass and better damping properties for a smooth ride.
TNT Base - TNT is a dual Fluoropolymer extruded base infused with Titanium and Teflon. A Lib Tech favorite for its durability, this is Lib Tech's fastest unwaxed base. TNT can be waxed less than a sintered base and will stay fast longer. Not as high maintenance as sintered, yet offers comparable performance.
Bio-Plastic Bean Topsheet - Lib Tech has made a commitment to 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.
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.
