Lib Tech Dynamo Review

A directional camber (with mild rocker between the bindings) profile snowboard designed to do it all. With an appealing shape for carving up groomers, cutting through crud, superb for popping off backcountry booters and stomping landings, and floating through powder this board can do it all. It’ll even rip up the park too.

Watching lib tech team rider Austin Sweetin rip up the backcountry and Mt. Baker and then watching team rider Phil Hansen ride the Dynamo in the park at Copper Mountain instantly made me want to try out this board. The Dynamo has a noticeable directional shape with a nose that will float up in powder and cut through crud for all mountain riding. The magne-traction provides superior edge hold in any conditions and helps drive through turns in most any snow conditions.

The topsheet and base artwork by Mike Parillo are incredible to look at, and you’ll truly be riding a piece of art under your feet. The textured topsheet has some nice details to it, and is grippy enough so you won’t slip when you take your back foot out for those one footer tricks. It’s a fairly stiff board, but not too stiff, I found it great to carve on and it floats really well in powder.

It rides well in the park, and it has great pop. I had to get used to putting the Dynamo down easy in the park, if you’re on edge it’s aggressive, so be aware and keep in mind even though it has slight rocker between the bindings it’s an aggressive board. I felt turn initiation was fast on the Dynamo, it is really easy to make fast carves and lay into eurocarves as well, a fun all mountain ride. Its damp and stable at high speeds, the 156 was really fun to just point down hill and drop. In powder this board is great too, the nose lifts up and the slightly set back stance just makes it floaty and playful. The dynamo is true to it’s name it’s energetic, powerful and delivers a lot of fun!

Overall Impressions:

If you are an intermediate to advanced rider looking for an aggressive do it all (camber dominant with slight rocker between the bindings) snowboard the Dynamo rips! This board will do it all and the topsheet and base are a wonder to look at, it will truly stand out when you’re riding it.
