Lib Tech's New Technology Combination: C3 Camber Dominant, Submissive Banana; Mag.5; and Versatile Sidecut, for Heady Snowboarding!


Near Canada, USA (November 12, 2012) –  Lib Tech's newest board design, the Hot Knife C3 BTX, originally slated for the 2013/2014 lineup came out of the hot box early, primed for a limited edition release this year. With its C3 Camber Dominant, Submissive Banana Technology; a versatile sidecut for all around shredding; and Mag.5 Magne-Traction, a Hot Knife will produce a lucid snowboard flashback for aggressive new traditionalists and 90's camber studs. The Hot Knife is now available in retail stores and online at


Incorporating Lib Tech's new postmodern Banana technology, C3 — camber made better than it ever was with the addition of Banana! The Hot Knife C3 pushes a maximum amount of pressure out to the tip and tails for super power, end-to-end stability, and control of traditional camber designs of the 90's, but with the improved edge hold and easy float in the pow from Banana Rocker between your feet.  The Hot Knife is precision aggressive freeride freestyle riding, C3 offers high levels of control.


The Hot Knife also includes Lib Tech's newest formula of Magne-Traction, Mag.5. Magne-Traction consists of several levels of serrations strategically located along the edge that improve edge grip on snow and ice and all over the mountain, Mag.5 is a less graded version specially tuned for crisp carving. Magne-Traction makes a Hot Knife rip through an ice tube smoother!


Lib Tech will be offering a full run of the Hot Knife boards in the 2013/2014 line-up.
