Lib Tech Climax
Size: 155, 159, 163
The Climax is Travis Rice and Lib Tech's design moment where precision, pop, and power have joined forces to create the epitome of performance. This board weights in almost a pound less than Rice's already lightweight Goldmember. How is this achieved? With full carbon construction at 0˚, 30˚ and 90˚, Spin-Slim lightweight tip and tails, magnesium fiberglass layup, and a special core that combines ultralight recycled PET wth Paulownia, Aspen, Columbian Gold woods. The crossroads of fluid dampness and unbelievable firecracker snap is where this ultra lightweight and durable all-mountain board lands.

Flex: Medium Stiff Flex – Stout enough to charge your hardest but without excessive harshness.
Core: Balsa / Paulownia / Aspen / Columbian Gold Wood Core
Laminates: Climax Construction – Lib Tech’s most advanced construction technology uses a carbon 0˚ 30˚ 90˚ weave and magnesium coated glass fiber.
