2013 Lib Tech Snowboards Skunk Ape C2BTX and HP
27 Aug, 2012
Psst. Hey buddy. Yeah, you with the bigger than average feet. Lemme show you something, something you really need to check out. It’s the Lib Tech Skunk Ape C2BTX. And its suped up brother, the Skunk Ape HP C2BTX. Tired of toe drag when you lay into a good carve? Have you given up on finding a board built for a lumberjack? Well, the Skunk Apes are the answer to all your snowboard woes. Built by and for the guys that work in the Lib Tech Snowboard Factory up near Canada, this is a real man’s snowboard.
Designed for the rider with size 13+ feet and weighing in over 200 lbs, the Skunk Apes allow the big guys to have fun too. The smallest Skunk Ape is 157cm and has a waist width of 26.8cm and the longest is 180cm. The C2BTX gives these boards the pressure needed between the feet from the rocker and stability outside of the bindings from the camber. Magne-Traction lets the rider dig in with either edge on ice or hard pack without compromising control. And the Columbian Gold wood combo core with the basalt and fiber glass mix keep the Skunk Ape a solid 7 out of 10 on the stiff stick scale.
The horsepower construction adds a bit more tech to the mix. Lib Tech uses an all basalt glass and pure Columbian Gold core make the HP Skunk Apes lighter and stronger. The bio beans sparkle top sheet also shows that the board is somewhat magical. Available in 161cm, 165cm and 169cm, this is the board for that big guy that is able to charge hard all season long and wants his board to keep up with him.
The Skunk Ape is one of Eternal‘s best selling big guy boards, and for good reason. Just because you were a linebacker in college, doesn’t mean you should have to compromise on the snow.
