Lib Technologies is an American Snowboard manufacturing company, (owned by Mervin), known for its radically approach to snowboard design.
The best part about this forwarding thinking company (aka Lib Tech), is that they are always open to trying new designs with their products, which gets people excited.
Mike Olson took the first steps towards sustainability early in the growth development of Lib Technologies. To decrease the impact on the environment, Mike basically replace toxic plastics with recyclable polyethylene in 1986, and introduced sustainable polymer top sheets and bamboo cores in 1995.
The latest technology to date, to come out of the forward thinking companies experimental division, is magne traction.
Magne-Traction snowboards have seven contact points for you to rely on when pressure is applied to the board. Basically this technology latest innovation replaces the conventional “two contact-point ski and snowboard theory”.
With Magne Traction when your two outside contact points lose grip, you’ve still got five more to take over. You won’t fall as much, it makes the board ride much like a skateboard.
I have to agree that the edge is unique to Lib Tech and that it does provide that extra sense of control and stability.
The Lib Tech Skate Banana snowboard, features magne traction and reverse camber technology that ultimately puts edge pressure between your feet where it should be, instead of pressure at the tip and tails like most boards.
This Skate Banana board is renowned for making snowboarding easier and fun for all. Its a BIG favorite among the park riders, basically for its awesome ability to butter anything due to its rocker and soft center while still being able to hit the kickers with confidence as a result of its stiffer nose and tail.
A combination of magne traction and Banana Technology has made Lib Tech Snowboards one of the front runners in the manufacturing industry today.
