Quick overview

The Lib Tech Apex Orca is loaded with the best Lib has to offer. From predator to Apex predator. The Apex Orca is not your standard fish shape. Recycled PET bottles, carbon webbing combined with magnesium, extra carbon and fiberglass strips are a few of the ingredients. With its whale tail and its 7 meter radius, this board is a real all-mountain killer. The buoyancy and response of this board make you believe you're floating away in an light orb.

Details

PROFILE

  • C2X
    Similar to C2, but with more rocker between the feet and a more aggressive camber under the feet. More float and ease of turning and yet a snappy feel and sufficient edge grip. More pressure on the tip and tail means more stability, pop and control.

  • Lightweight Spin Slim
    Reduced weight in the tip and tail, results in a lower swing rate and less weight in the board.


CORE

  • Apex Construction
    The apex Construction has earned its name. This is the most vibrant, lightest and most environmentally friendly core of Lib. The core consists of: 20% Aspen / 30% Paulownia / 40% (PET) recycled bottles and 10% Balsa. The glassing consists of a carbon webbing, extra strips of carbon for torsional rigidity, magnesium and fiberglass. Are you that predator on a snowboard, go for the APEX Orca.


REINFORCEMENTS

  • Tri-ax/Bi-ax Fiberglass Combo
    A perfect mix of Tri-Ax over Bi-Ax, these are carbon stringers that further affect and improve torsional stiffness and pop.


TOPSHEET

  • Eco Sublimated Bio-Plastic Beans Top
    Lib Tech aims to be the greenest snowboard brand. Bioplastic is made from castor beans, also known as miracle beans. This eco-friendly material is very lightweight as well as scratch-resistant and water and snow repellent.


BASE

  • Sintered Knife Cut Base
    This is Lib Tech's sintered base. This base is fast, durable and absorbent. Like other sintered bases, the wax absorbs quickly and improves the glide.


SIDEWALL & EDGES

  • Magne-traction
    Lib Tech is the inventor of Magne-Traction. Magne-Traction is a slight wave in the steel edge. Like a serrated knife that cuts through bread, Magne-Traction cuts in the snow. This gives the board extra grip on icy and hard conditions. When the conditions become softer, this causes a loss of speed.

  • Birch Internal Sidewall
    The internal sidewalls are reinforced with Birch. This gives you a better response and more control. In addition, the chance of a 'fatal' impact on your steel side is reduced.

  • UHMW Sintered Sidewall
    Very strong, waterproof and light sidewall that bends well with the flex of your board. No environmentally unfriendly ABS!

  • UHMW Tip/Tail Impact Deflection
    It is mainly the tip and tail that are damaged while using your board. By using UHMWPE in the tip and tail you prevent this damage and possible delamination. The steel edge of Lib tech boards therefore does not extend beyond the contact points.


OTHER

  • 2x4 Inserts
    2x4 has more mounting option then 4x4. All new bindings will fit on these boards, except for 3D and EST.

  • Handcrafted
    Handcrafted in the USA near Canada! These snowboards are handmade and tested in the Mervin factory in America.
