When we heard faint whispers that Lib Tech were going to be releasing a dedicated women’s line, we were pretty fucking stoked. Given the chance the ladies at Whitelines will wax poetic about their favourite Gnu boards, so the opportunity to ride some funky Lib shapes piqued our curiosity.
Now, it’s not like Lib have had some groady gatekeeper stopping chicks from enjoying their boards, over the years they’ve championed some of the OG female riders. Barrett Christy, Janna Meyen and Shannan Yates all made waves while riding unisex Lib boards and the impact they made paved the way for the new generation to come out swinging. Rather than sitting back and resting on these success stories, Lib have taken it one step further and released this whole line of women’s specific boards.
They’ve worked extensively with their female riders to create a line of snowboards that will appeal to a broad range of people. Whether you’re wanting to lay down tracks on groomers, tear shit up in the park or head out on a dawn patrol splitboard mission, there’s a board that’ll have your back. The four womens specific models– The No. 43, The Dynamiss, The Glider and The Cortado are joined by their very own Orca and Split BRD. As with all Mervin offerings, they’ll be produced in their zero hazardous waste facility in the USA.
