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.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This board rules the steeps. If you're thinking about getting one smaller than '62 pick something else. Stiffness and magne track combined with camber enable this board to inspire confidence on steep slopes. NOT A BOARD FOR BEGINNERS, INTERMEDIATE, OR CRUISERS! This is a go fast board for the most aggressive big mtn riders. Do not buy this board if you were thinking about anything under 162. Do not buy this board for riding the trees, the park, or low angle pow. This is not a board for a vacationer!!This is a big mtn cheese grater eating talus field mountain goating grimacing bearded locals board. I have been a snowboard instructor for 8 years. This board has very minimal side cut, and therefore has a huge turn radius. RAD I us. I am very much enjoying destroying mine this season. Ps environmentally friendly processes rock! Haha get it? basalt!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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.

Responded on

I'm riding last year's model and the wider version. Been riding for 25 years on the East coast. Was apprehensive a little on the Magnetraction, but it's there only when you need it and . This board has been the best yet. It does what it says. My runs are longer and more controlled. I am the only boarder in our group of skiiers and I am often ahead of them down the slopes, not to mention the ability to do the run top to bottom without stops. Bindings are Burton Malavitas. Super happy with purchase, will only ride Mervin now. Well worth the money.
