Lib Tech Tech: Camber Profiles
26 Jan, 2013
Camber Profiles: Lib Tech snowboards come with a few different camber profiles. Camber is the property of the board when it on a flat surface. Traditional camber will have a rise or arch in the center of the board, with the nose and tail touching the surface, creating the shape of an arch. Reverse camber or rocker is pretty much the opposite of camber. The nose and tail of the board rise above the ground while the middle of the board is touching, making a very open “U” shape. There is also flat camber, which is where the board will be flat when on the ground. The Lib Tech and Gnu line ups use a blend of these cambers to create board profiles that are engineered, prototyped and tested to find the perfect blend for various riding styles. All of the new Lib Tech boards have a rocker or “banana” profile. The banana helps keep the optimum amount of pressure between the rider’s feet allowing for maximum control.
