Lib Tech snowboards also uses soy-based elastomer sidewalls instead of ABS and renewable forest products for their cores. All the technology going into Lib Tech boards has been given the green go ahead but what about any leftover materials? Well, worry not because Lib Tech recycles any and all unused wood, plastic, cardboard or paper. It is this great concern for the environment that keeps Lib's founders Mike Olson and Pete Saari on the frontlines of the green movement ensuring they are always doing all they can.

Top tech found on Lib Tech snowboards
Magne-Traction- Lib Tech started moving away from the long, smoothly curving sidewall and edge seen in your everyday boards and created Magne-Traction - a seven bump design in the sidewall to help with edge control and power. These seven bumps essentially break the edge into 7 sections giving you 7 times the chance of gripping an edge when you need it the most. Lib Tech snowboards with Magne-Traction offer tremendous grip in all situations and park boarders love them because the edge still performs when de-tuned for rails and park features.
Banana Technology- Lib Tech also utilizes their Banana Technology (BTX) which throws the whole camber theory out the window. Lib Tech reverses the camber between the rider's feet seen in traditional boards and arc downward which again offers awesome edge pressure and makes jibs and rails easier to manipulate and makes those landings a little more forgiving. Lib Tech's BTX boards employ a rocker between the bindings along with their Magne-Traction sidecuts. BTX allows for a catch-free ride shoving more fun in your face. Lib Tech snowboards featuring banana technology will work great in all conditions but will excel in powder, park, jibbing and all around FUN!
Lib Tech's newest design is the EC2 camber. It is an evolution of their C2 camber which adds a camber section underfoot to their BTX shapes.
