Lib Tech® snowboards are dedicated to making the world a better place and also making sure the snowboarder experience is always a sweet ride! The Lib Tech creation of the delicious power banana is doing just that with its handcrafted boards and environmentally-sound manufacturing. Every board is created by a dedicated snowboarder, so the designer knows what you want out of a board even before you do. Remember that not all rockers are the same, but Lib Tech snowboards strive to be the best!
Lib Tech snowboards are manufactured by Mervin Manufacturing, which is the longest running and last major snowboard factory in the USA. Mervin is managed and staffed by snowboarders, who continue to innovate and experiment with new ideas to improve the rider experience.
Mervin's "build, ride, refine" philosophy has created many important developments in snowboard evolution. The use of sidecuts to create edgehold and turning ability were first introduced by snowboard pioneer Mike Olson. The latest technology has been the creation of the Magne-Traction that makes snowboards easier to ride and improves overall performance. Their Banana technology continues to create better rocker control, tip-to-tail contact and improved gripping so the snowboarder controls the ice and not the other way around.
Mervin Manufacturing also strides to be an environmentally-sound company by working with water-based solvents and renewable fast-growing forest products. Wood dust is even recycled and scrap wood is sold for kindling. Mervin Manufacturing continues to move forward to be the leading snowboard company with a clean environmental conscience.
