Lib Tech Ski Review

Lib Tech Ski Review

Lib Tech is once again making skis and calling them NAS (Narrow Ass Snowboards). Based in Washington and part of the Rossignol / Quiksilver group, Lib Tech has some decent technology to draw from and has quite a few new ideas of its own, such as their Magne-Traction technology. With Mike Wilson and Jamie Pierre contributing to R&D, you know these skis can take a beating and won’t be strangers to going fast and taking chances.

NAS Park Series

Length: 156, 168, 176, 183
Dimensions: 117-85-111 @ 176
MSRP: $300 per ski/600 per pair
Stoke: N/A

The Park Series skis are all sold as singles to further distinguish this brand from its competitors. Three different top sheets are available and, like the other skis from Lib Tech, the Park Series incorporates the company’s signature Magne-Traction technology, which puts seven serrations in each edge, effectively looking like wiggles. These serration, each with a specific purpose, create a more catch-free tip and tail and better control for jumps and tricks.

NAS Freeride Series

Length: 176, 188
Dimensions: 139-93-123 @ 188
MSRP: $300 per ski/600 per pair
Stoke: N/A

The Freeride Series skis are also sold as singles with various top sheets and feature the Magne-Traction technology. With the wider footprint and longer lengths, the Mange edges help the ski hold on ice and give more stability for steeps and big-mountain antics.

NAS Pow Series

Length: 185
Dimensions: 149-117-142
MSRP: $300 per ski/600 per pair
Stoke: N/A

Once again sold as singles, the NAS Pow Series is specifically designed by Mike Wilson to handle the biggest of backcountry booters. It has layers of fiberglass sandwiched throughout the ski for power, pop and an even reduced swing weight. We’re hoping to hook up with these guys next year at Solitude and ride some fresh on these big boards.
