This is Mike Olson’s daily rider. Completely Volcanic Organic featuring all Basalt fibers (no traditional fiberglass). Mike and the experiMENTAL division have tuned this combination of unique materials and deep “enhanced” Banana to create incredible edge grip in all conditions especially ice, unbelievable float in powder and broken snow, effortless jibbing and damp quiet stability at speed.

TECHNOLOGY

!BTX!: ENHANCED BANANA
A magical dynamic blend of our highest Banana Tech rocker between your feet and a secret numerical formula of camber to the contact points. Mild tip pressure for incredible float in powder, catchfree freestyle combined with solid pressure between your feet for precise carving on ice.

MTX: MAGNE-TRACTION
Seven points of focused edge control. Magne-Traction’s strategic serrations provide unreal edge hold and control in all conditions. Winner of over 30 Good Wood awards. Ridden to Olympic gold medals, Air and Style championships, King of Hill, X Games Street gold, Supernatural victory and Ted Borland’s backwoods jibs.
INGREDIENTS
HORSEPOWER CONSTRUCTION
The experiMENTAL Division’s favorite high performance combination of lightweight strong environmentally friendly materials. All Basalt Glass (no fiberglass), Columbian Gold Core, Beans Top material. Light, smooth, strong.

POWER A, POLINIA, ASPEN XL CORE
Super ultra light, strong, long lively fibers.

BASALT
Strong light Volcanic organic additive free fiber reinforcements. Flex modulus is synchronized with our resin system for maximum strength and minimum weight. Damp, strong, and lively for a smooth poppy ride. Our favorite fiber.

BIO-PLASTIC BEANS
ExperiMENTAL division leader Mike Olson loves beans! When he’s not eating them he’s buying plastics made with them. Lib Tech has made a commitment to using a new earth friendly, bio-plastic top skin made from beans that features the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any top sheet in the industry.
POWER TRANSFER INTERNAL SIDEWALLS
The same futuristic power 90º pop technology from our world record setting skateboards and power transfer spines only this time we have placed it along the sidewall of your board to add board control to our sandwich construction. Stronger, more pop, and more control brought to you by our Woodshop!

DOUBLE SINTERED UHMW SIDEWALLS
A Lib Tech innovation. Twice as sintered as any other sidewall. Tough, fast, hard, waterproof, handsome and light. NO TOXIC ABS!

CO-SINTERED BASE MATERIAL
Eco Sublimation compatible, fast, rugged, maximum wax retention.

HANDCRAFTED IN THE USA NEAR CANADA!
BITCHIN’ BOARD BUILDERS We build snowboards. We build snowboards. No really… that is what we do. We don’t order them from China or anywhere else and send someone to go check and see how they turned out. We physically hand build them right here at home in the USA.
ECO SUBLIMATION
Mervin’s unique water based graphic process. No toxic solvents or curtain coats used in manufacturing process. If a snowboard has a thick clear glossy on top it was really toxic to make. Lib Tech gives you an environmentally friendly alternative. NO TOXIC SOLVENT BASED INKS OR CLEAR COATS.
