Lib Tech Dark Series C2 158
A Dark Wave Of Camber

Everything’s been going bananas at Lib Tech since they upturned their boards and gave ’em wiggly edges-and quite frankly, since bananarama began, snowboards everywhere haven’t ridden the same. For 2010, they’re adjusting the finer points of camber with the Dark Series C2-a camber hybrid that has, according to Lib Tech head Pete Saari, “a combination of the best features of both camber and Banana rocker design. Banana [rocker between your feet] offers catch free freestyle freedom, incredible ice and hardpack carving, and unreal float in powder while camber at each end offers pop, snap, and end-to-end stability.” The C2 design really hits the spot for aggressive freestyle riders while its elevated mounting inserts provide even better edge leverage for riding out the wave.
