They're everywhere! They're everywhere!
Unidentified Flying Objects ain't just stickin' to Area 51 anymore. Invading a ski resort near you, the Lib Tech UFO 100 Ski is bringing out-of-this-world freestyle performance to your all-mountain playground. Confuse the tourists with wild spins both in the park and off piste with the UFOs tapered tip and tail and reduced swing weight. A nimble, lively, and sustainably harvested aspen core, burly fiberglass layers, and a super-smooth sintered UHMW base bring enough energy to boost you up to light speed, but dampen celestial vibrations and impacts with astroids, or, uh, moguls and frozen suncups. The 100mm waist width keeps ya floating on boot-top pow, but can still bring the ruckus on groomers or features.
Lib Tech knows you'll be spending about as much time skiing switch as you will forward and that landing in a bit of fluff after big airs will happen more often than not, so the directionally rockered tip and tail with elliptical entry points create buttery smooth transitions from airspace to earth. For less-than-powdery days, hearty camber underfoot and serrated Magne-Traction edges rip into ice and hardpack with voracity.

New take on a modern classic
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This rocker camber rocker all mountain shape is not new to the market, but what Lib has added to this modern classic shape is exciting.
This pair of narrow snowboards (how lib tech perceives skis) is sporting the Magne-Traction edges for superior edge hold. The tapered tip and tail allow the ski to float and surf over more variable terrain and pow while still maintaining the camber underfoot for those pucker factor moments. That aspen core combined with a lighter weight layup gives the ski a forgiving flex and a playful nature.
If you like the idea of a ski in this shape like a Rossignol Sky 7, Salomon QST 99, or a DPS Wailer 99, but you don't like the idea of a stiff touring ski or more serious experance on snow you should seriously consider the UFO.
