Matt Cummins has the longest-running pro model in the history of snowboarding. Year after year he drops another experimental creation, and this year’s no exception.
The Lib Tech MC Snake Kink is designed for the powder. Take this thing into the deep and fluffy and the dual threat nose profile will help keep the front of your board elevated, whilst the set back stance will help to create that surfy feeling.
“Lib Tech’s Magne-Traction serrated edges should help you gain some edge control as you bomb it down icy groomers”
If you’re not heading out to Niesko this season, then the Snake kink should do just fine on the piste. The camber profile combined with Lib Tech’s Magne-Traction serrated edges should help you gain some edge control as you bomb it down icy groomers.
Sadly, the Snake Kink only comes in one size, 159, so riding this years’ Matt Cummins pro model may only cater for the select few. For those lucky enough to match up to the board’s length, the stiffer flex and directional shape definitely lends itself to harder charging laps, less so cruisy jibs laps in the park.
The board also features artwork by Damian Fulton, who held the VP position at Marvel Comics for a while – giving you some style points on the mountain.
Of course, this is really a board for the backcountry. Give it the right chance and it will show you what it’s capable of.
