Description

The 2019 Lib-Tech Swiss Knife is a no nonsense board designed by living legend Fredi Kalbermatten to take on big mountains. It's one of the most reliable boards you can be on when there's a thin line between death and glory, with a directional camber and mild taper that boosts response in your tail and keeps your nose above the snow. Like it's namesake it's handy in almost any situation, whether you need precision and power on groomers, you want to get jibby and playful, or you need a board that can do it all in powder. Fredi tackles some huge mountains in Switzerland and rides a wide variety of snow conditions, often in the same run, which is why the Swiss Knife is his go-to powerhouse.
