Quick overview

The Lib Tech Golden Orca is a Power predator in both directions. Travis took his Orca learnings and merged them with his elite high performance snowboard world freestyle tour dreams to come up with this supreme Orca freestyle evolution. The long floaty Orca nose loves pow. A directional C2X contour rips resort, trenches hardpack carves and blasts off mountainous side hits. A brand new long floaty switch friendly power kink tail rides short powerful and poppy on hardpack but floats like a dream through switch freestyle takeoffs and landings. The beloved Orca merges with magical T. Rice Pro and manifests a golden power beast. You can ride this beast 1 to 3 cm shorter then your normal all-mountain board.

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

  • Firepower Construction
    Firepower Construction is lightweight and designed with a surfy feel in mind. The core consists of: 50% Aspen / 40% Paulownia and 10% Balsa. The extra added balsa is strong, extremely light and gives a good flex. A basalt web has been added to the tri-ax fiberglass layers. This provides an unprecedented damping effect in the board.


REINFORCEMENTS

  • Basalt Fiber Reïnforcement
    Basalt is a volcanic rock with specific properties that includes being lightweight and providing excellent damping, which ensures good stability. Combining basalt with a special resin creates a unique layer that is not only lightweight and strong but also provides a lively playful character (pop).

  • 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

  • Eco Sub Sintered Base Material
    A sintered, fast and environmentally friendly base that is easy to maintain.


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.
