How It Was Tested

I just took a few laps at the demo, but this board was easy for me to get to know since I have a lot of experience with the Dynamo and BRD.

Approximate Weight

It feels pretty normal, bordering on light, but far from being ultra-light. (We don’t put in the exact weight because, with wood cores, there is no consistency in a boards weight)


Here are some ideal US boot sizes for the Lib Tech Lib-Rig boards. You can, of course, go bigger or smaller depending on your riding style and boot’s footprint, but these work best for not turning the board slower than it should be and not having the dreaded Toe & Heel Drag.
153: 8-9
159: 9-10
160w- 11-12

Lib Tech isn’t bad for weight, and they don’t really have a max—within reason.


The Lib Tech Lib Rig is much less directional and tapered than the BRD but a little more than the Dynamo. It sits on the border between Freeride and All Mtn. It feels more centered and like a nontapered ride than a tapered ride, though.

Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level

The camber on the Lib Rig seems to be more on the hybrid camber side because it has some early rise before the nose and a little before the tail. It seems to be more like the old BRD. It’s more forgiving than full-on C3 with only a passive camber in the middle with camber from tip to tail. This skids a turn pretty easily but tracks much better one footing/flat basing than any type of C2 or hybrid rocker out there.

Flex Personality

The Lib Tech Lib Rig is medium bordering on medium stiff. It wasn’t hard to butter, and it’s pretty easy to pop up on an ollie.

Uneven Terrain

While the Lib Tech Lib Rig has pop it doesn’t get ultra chattery or too bucky in most hard or wet thick uneven snow.

Edge Hold

I think this is what Lib Tech used to call.25 MTX. It’s a mellower disruption in the sidecut. The Dynamo used to be called .5, and the Antigravity is more like full MTX. So the Lib Tech Lib Rig doesn’t grip as hard as the other 2 but grabs less in softer, thicker snow. It’s still pretty competent in harder snow, though, compared to a standard sidecut.


The stable camber, medium bordering on medium stiff flex, and balanced sidecut make the Lib Tech Lib Rig a decent ride for going fast and straight. It’s not all time but it’s pretty good for an All-Mtn ride.

Base Glide

Lib Tech just doesn’t have bases that glide, as well as many of their peers. The Lib Tech Lib Rig needs to be waxed a lot for it to have competent glide.

Turning Experience/Carving

Lib Tech Lib Rig -Carve

This 159 was pretty quick edge to edge, even though I’m a little on the small side boot-wise. The 156 would be super quick, but I liked the 159. It was medium-fast and predictable

When you get it on edge, the Lib Tech Lib Rig feels pretty balanced. It’s not a full-on straight liner or circle carver, but it does all in between really well. What I liked was that it still springs out of the turn. It’s not as much as the Dynamo with its extra camber, but it’s pretty springy still.


I didn’t get this in pow, but I got the two boards it’s a hybrid of in pow. The Dynamo, a decent all-mountain floater and the BRD, a pretty good Freeride floater that’s better than the Dynamo. My guess is it will be between these.


It’s a very doable switch, and this isn’t a bad board in the pipe or hitting kickers.


So overall, I would have liked to have gotten more time on it and compared in a wide variety of conditions like I do with most boards. What I got I liked though.
