Lib Tech Cygnus X-1 BTX 157 Snowboard
$2,500 for a snowboard? When you're buying a board from an "experimental division," you'd better believe you're paying top dollar. Or top dollar plus a thousand. The good folks at Lib Tech may have decided to make a hyper-eco-friendly board, but its less like driving a Prius than it is flying an F-16. Sintered base? Psshhh...try a sintered carbon base. The board's magnesium oxide strand base uses 30 percent less petroleum products but is still twice as strong as fiberglass. The top sheet is made from castor beans and is still the toughest thing going. The self-healing bipolymer sidewalls are super impact resistant, glow in the dark and offer healing properties that would make Wolverine jealous. And Lib Tech's Vectran Torsion Rods are 25 percent lighter than carbon...the material that we swore was the lightest thing on Earth.
