A new-school twist on classic camber, now for big-footed rippers.
Jamie Lynn may have the best frontside spins ever, but you can't buy those. Don't get discouraged, though, you can at least get his Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Phoenix C3 BTX wide snowboard. It builds on the same mid-wide Phoenix shape he's been honing since the '90s, and brings it into the 21st century with Lib's new C3 BTX camber. It rides like traditional camber, except way better, because you get the grip and float you've come to expect from Banana technology. It still has a mid-stiff flex and proven power-freestyle geometry, so you and you end up with a board that charges steep lines and big jumps with more control than ever before.
You already know that the Phoenix is built on Lib's C3 BTX profile. That means that it's cambered tip to tail, but there's a gently rockered section between the feet. When the board is unweighted, the tip and tail touch the ground, and the rockered section between the feet doesn't. We know it sounds crazy, but trust us, the result is all the cambered power and edge hold that you love, but with a bunch of extra float, and more grip between your feet. It's just like the '90s, except way better. In keeping with the new-school theme, there's Magne-Traction .5 edges, or Mellow Mag for short. It places seven smaller bumps along the edges, which keeps it running fast when you get it on edge. The bumps are bigger between the feet, which concentrates most of the grip there for a ride feeling that's a lot like a skateboard. The nearly-twin shape has a half inch of setback, for directional shredding, without sacrificing switch landings or takeoffs.
The H Pop core uses fast growing, 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 Teflon-infused TNT extruded base holds up to impact, and runs fast even when you forget to wax it. Best of all, you can rest easy knowing that your snowboard was built with eco-friendly materials by snowboarders with jobs.
