Lib Tech: Made in the USA

Lib Tech is a collective of creative board sports dreamers who pretty much live on their boards – and build high-performance and eco-friendly materials with incredible determination: “Maximized material yields, recycling and repurposing. Zero hazardous waste. We do it all ourselves because we love it and nobody does it better." For example, they use bioplastics, soy-based elastomer sidewalls and FSC-certified wood cores. Marvin Manufacturing itself states that the sustainable attitude began with an aversion to commonly used toxic solvents. Through trial and error, their creative minds developed all kinds of eco-friendly solutions: “Our printing process allows us to bring our artists' coolest designs to life with vibrant colors and details. With zero hazardous waste!" The company’s own factory in the USA, in the green state of Washington, uses electricity from almost 90 % hydroelectric power.


Yet, Banana Technology is not the only iconic Lib Tech feature. An additional highlight is the Magne Traction Technology, which gives the snowboarder some great edge grip and cuts into any surface, no matter if snow or ice, like a knife. Speaking of a knife: The edges look just like a knife and due to their wavy structure, they are able to easily carve their way through any icy surface and hard piste.

Lib Technologies is part of Mervin Manufacturing and was founded by Mike Olson. Within the corporate structure, there are additional divisions, such as Gnu and Roxy Snowboards. Naturally, all companies that are involved greatly profit from this cooperation. There is the possibility to share some precious knowledge and improve operation in general, and gear in particular.
