I have always been a fan of Jaime Lynn for his timeless snowboard style and his amazing art. The Lib Tech Dagmar puts all of Jaime into a snowboard, incorporating beautiful artwork and a board that crushes everything in its path.
The Dagmar profile is Lib’s C2 Technology, offering up mild rocker between the feet and camber to the nose and tail. This really gives the board good contact and control in all conditions. It had been a few years since I rode a board with Magne-traction so I spent a few days in the early season ripping groomers to get a feel for the Dagmar. Magne-Traction provides seven contact points along the board’s edge providing superior edge hold on the iciest conditions. Every run I pushed the board a bit more and it did not disappoint. Being a medium flex it is super snappy and responsive edge to edge. The edge hold was impressive and I was able to lay down aggressive, high speed carves with ease and confidence. Even though the Dagmar is a directional board, it can easily be ridden switch.
When I first saw the Dagmar I was drawn to its shape. The tail is pretty traditional but the nose looks like someone took a saw to it and it has a crescent moon shape cut out of it. I was really curious how it would perform in powder since we get so many powder days in the Tetons and it’s my favorite condition. Early January in the Teton’s we had an epic storm cycle where it snowed for ten days straight. We went from a solid pow day to holy shit it’s deep. The Dagmar’s nose cut through the deepest snow I could find and floated with ease. The Dagmar does have a set back stance, about an inch, which also made it super easy to lean back and let it rip in the deep stuff.
I was only able to run it through the park a little bit. It had great pop off jumps, was stable on landings and was decent on rails. I typically prefer a board to be a little softer in the park though.
The Dagmar uses Lib Tech’s Original Power Construction (OP), which uses Aspen and Paulownia for the core, Tri-Ax and Bi-Ax fiber for pop and strength, and an Eco sublimated poly top sheet. The Eco Sublimated TNT base is really fast but I did find that with the Magne-Traction edges it shed wax pretty quickly when rolling groomers.
The Lib Tech Jaime Lynn Dagmar is truly a quiver killer from its stunning artwork to the super-smooth forgiving ride. This board can and probably will be your daily driver. It flat out digs trenches carving groomers and the blunt, wide Dagmar nose will make the deepest powder an epic surf day. Unfortunately, it will not be in next year’s line but there are still several Jaime Lynn boards for your riding pleasure.
