Looking for uncompromised edge hold with the most responsive lightest weight construction out there?  You just found your shred weapon of choice.  Meet the Dark Knife by Lib Tech.

Rocker Type Rocker Type

C3 BTX: Camber Dominant Banana Camber made better with the addition of mild Banana Tech rocker between your feet. Mild pressure between your feet for carving, edge grip, float in powder and our maximum tip and tail pressure for precise control, power stability and pop. The world’s best camber is a banana! C3 is a more aggressive rocker that will have much more tip /tail pressure when compared to BTX, C2, EC2, or XC2.  C3 will be slightly less forgiving and possibly more catchy on the edges for those that are not looking for the increased edge hold.
