Experience the dark side of freestyle.
If you're like Lib Tech team rider Jason Robinson, then you love hauling ass down steeps just as much as you like getting airborne. That's why Jason rides the Lib Tech Darker Series C3-BTX Snowboard. This aggressive freestyle deck is just as comfortable pinning it down couloirs as it is boosting backcountry booters.
The C3-BTX profile features camber with a mild amount of rocker directly in the middle of the board. In fact, the rocker is so subtle that the rockered part of the board doesn't even touch the ground when you're not standing on it. This small amount of rocker makes carving easier and improves float in deep snow without compromising the precision and power of the camber. Magne-Traction edges provide extra grip to slice through ice likes it's fresh corduroy, and a slightly setback stance adds drive without limiting your ability to ride switch.
The bindings mount to the Bamboo Organic Throttle riser plates, which radiate out into the core to give you more direct input to the board and quicker response. The Columbian Gold and Power A core uses sustainably harvested wood for a board that's light and snappy. Power Transfer internal sidewalls crank up the durability, and they're buffered by UHMW external sidewalls for impact resistance. The sintered base is fast and holds wax well to keep you flying around the mountain. Best of all, you can rest easy knowing that your snowboard was built in the USA with eco-friendly materials by snowboarders with jobs. Basalt reduces the amount of fiberglass needed to reduce toxins created in the manufacturing process without sacrificing strength, and the Bio Bean topsheet is made from castor beans instead of petroleum-based plastics.

Experienced riders will enjoy this board knowing Satans price tag went to a great cause. Those who pitch forked it over bought the ticket to insanely fast runs knowing the board will perform as it should. Any board that can't keep and hold the riders trust is crap. And there's a lot of crap out there. 9 outta 10 people are riding polished turds. The only turd resemblance on the Darker Series is you might poop your pants because the board is rad.
That said, the stiffness, side cut, torsion, and flex.....are dam near perfect. I am 5'6" ,156#, 9 boot, regular, snowboarding over 28 years, an instructor, and sick of wasting money on crap. Tired of listening to the next new fads and fashions. BTW, where's all the clicker bindings, the lunch trays, sawed off noses and tails, and foam cores and honeycombs?
Another reason to like Lib Tech, it's done right. That's why the company is still insight.
I gotta go, Slayer is up next.
