Matt and the experiMENTAL division updated all of the Lib x ...lost models this year. This Japan inspired floaty nosed, powder loving swallow tail, all mountain ripping, wall hanger got some stylish shape refinements and a new elliptical deep sidecut carving engine. The Retro Ripper loves riding in the storm or quiet meditative woodsy hikes into secret pow stashes for days after the last snowfall. This thing is made for smooth speedy lines and explosive slashes... take an average day and make it more surfy... take a great pow day and make a memory that lasts a lifetime. Long floaty low entry nose, set back camber synced with a hard driving progressive sidecut, beautiful Biolos lines and shape with a tail settling, nose lifting, carve enhancing swallow tail. It‘s not really retro it’s timeless... the new sidecuts are guaranteed to blow your mind.

“The Retro Ripper turns low angle terrain into an F1 race track. Be it pencil line precision carving on groomers, or effortlessly floating through powder that leaves other boards bogging, the RR brings a stylish, glorious glide, and smooths out most anyone’s ride.” - Matt Biolos

Camber underfoot with a bit of rocker lift in the nose gives you the ultimate best of both worlds for a pow ready board that holds up in any condition.
This board bend has entry rocker that adds lift to the nose while a camber section under both feet maintains momentum and stability through deep-driving turns and variable conditions. This bend caters to those who like the attributes of traditional camber but want something that will get up to speed and float easier in pow.
Directional tapered boards excel in a pure mountain environment.
A directional shape with a longer, softer nose and a shorter, stiffer tail get taken to the next level with a tapering design—which sees a wider nose tapering into a narrower tail. The advantages are two-fold: this shape not only sees mega-enhanced floatation with a surfy feel in deep powder, it also creates a faster turning snowboard which is noticeably more nimble and great for tree riding.
