Snowboard Lib Tech Utility Knife

Note: The actual colour of the board's base may be different than the one shown on the picture. Brands make them randomly.

If Lib Tech’s boards are knowned by most riders and have been shredding the slopes for years, from the Skate Banana to the T.Rice, the brand has a new release this year called the Utility Knife. This new board belongs to the freestyle lineup of the manufacturer. 

What can the Lib Tech Utility Knife snowboard do? 

Featuring a C3 profile, the Utility Knife is an aggressive board with camber underfoot making it more responsive but keeping a playful touch thanks to the reverse camber between the bindings. We have a genuine freestyle gun here, jib, rails and boxes have no secrets. The board feels like a skateboard, super nimble, it pops hard and does what you ask when you ask. It excels at killing rails but it also performs on kickers. Spins are smooth and intuitive, there’s no swing weight and landings are even smoother. From stylish slow-mo-like backside 180s to technical 900 tail grab, your bag of tricks has no bottom. And beyond the fact this board is the ideal park gun, it’s also a decent all-rounder that can play on most terrains. The construction ensures optimal support at high speed or on difficult snow and lets you shred the entire mountain with peace of mind. 

Who is the Lib Tech Utility Knife snowboard designed for? 

Freestylers, advanced or experts, the Utility Knife is going to be your new best friend. Great jib board, it was designed for breaking and ripping rails and boxes all day long. It’s also a good board for kickers. Actually, it covers any aspect of freestyle. The board is powerful and responsive, nimble and ideally suited for aggressive riders seeking stability on all terrains and ready to sacrifice a bit of forgiveness.

  • FS All mountain

Baseplate - Chassis

  • Delta Light  :

    Engineered with the highest quality aluminum and fiber reinforced nylon. This ultra light weight baseplate was designed to enhance response and board feel. The weight on this baseplate was dramatically reduced by removing heavy plastic and replacing it with an EVA dampening pad. Delta-lite has an all new contact pad placed directly on the board to better dampen and take riding to a whole new level. A versatile, all-terrain performance baseplate that’s fully customizable for superior fit.

  • Natural cant  :

    Customize your riding stance maintaining the natural riding position in order to facilitate the natural inclination of the legs! It features the Rebound heel absorber low density cushioning to increase in the heel area the absorption of the vibrations and the dampening in landings. Thanks to the new Natural Cant pad the riding flavor will smell differently.

Highback

  • Light Frame  :

    Good news for the lovers of lightness! The new Light Frame keeps the same benefits of a full frame highback without the weight! It's a perfect mix of torsion and response while dramatically reducing the weight of the highback. This guarantees that it is comfortable, forgiving with no compromise of the support. And no extra weight.

Straps - Buckles

  • MG 12  :

    Take the quickest, and most efficient ratchet in the market, appreciated for its ability to slide five ladder steps every crank and its ergonomic shape to fasten the ratcheting and releasing operations. Then reduce the weight by 25% using Magnesium instead of aluminum and add even more precision with the new metal button release. You have yet to try the best.

  • Convertible Toe Glove  :

    This revolutionary uretane strap ensures perfect fit over the toe of the boot. Its two flexible wings go around the toes,

    automatically forming a gapless bond between strap and boot, which keeps them secure in the binding. They can also be

    positioned in their original mode across the front of the toes.

  • Premium MFC ankle strap  :

    Comfort, response, and flex in a luxuriously constructed strap.

    New internal padding for extra flex and coheasion with boot and binding interface. Featured on the Fifty binding, which is the best Drake's “value for the money”.

Various
