Quickly becoming known for her contributions to snowboard culture far beyond her timeless style and decimation of street spots worldwide, Kennedi Deck’s love for snowboarding runs deep, complementing her milestone video parts by becoming a voice for the queer snowboard community, and inspiring many to be their true, unapologetic selves. As a part of Kennedi’s pursuit for inclusivity, she has united her passions and inspired Vans Snow to continue the momentum. Elevating her interpretation of the Standard Snow MTE snow boot to take a genderless approach, this downsized version of Vans’ best-selling Standard Snow MTE snow boot features a waterproof vulcanized lower, waterproof seam-sealed construction, a Standard Snow MTE outsole featuring All-Trac™ all-terrain rubber, and a 100-gram weight insulation package. Made with leather and synthetic uppers in Kennedi’s signature colorway, classic Vans style and day-to-day winter weather footwear have finally converged. • KENNEDI DECK SIGNATURE COLLECTION • TRACTION: Specially designed for cruising around in cold weather conditions, the Standard Snow MTE outsole with All-Trac™, a cold weather-specific all-terrain rubber compound, offers next-level grip and traction. Featuring an aggressive reverse waffle lug pattern for variable terrain and street performance, and a siped tire-like design that increases overall traction. • INSULATION: Shoveling the walkway, walking the dog, or running to the market—we all want warm feet on a cold day, and the downsized 100-gram weight insulation package gets the job done. • MOISTURE MANAGEMENT: A vulcanized rubber lower and waterproof, seam-sealed construction provide an impenetrable leak guard.
Lib Tech - Skunk Ape II 2023 Snowboard
Our experiMENTAL Division’s big guy “dream board” project gets a nose job! Constant testing and refinement by Trevor Phillips, Krush Kulesza, Neil Green and Kurt Jensen make this the best larger gentlemen’s power freestyle stick on the planet. The boys added a slightly more relaxed longer nose shape for pow float this year. The new ape is absolutely resort ready... hit the rails or put it on rail and trench, your toes won’t drag but your knuckles might and now the big beast is even more pow friendly. Built in ultra-light HP construction for easy on the front foot chair rides.
THE LEGENDARY BIG GUY DREAM SNOWBOARD
RAGES THE RESORT AND DISAPPEARS IN WOODS
NEW FLOATIER ATV NOSE SHAPE
ART BY: Quincy Quigg (@q_quigg_) “All of my most memorial days riding in the Cascade Range were riding on a Skunk Ape. It is truly is a quiver killer, I have literally rode this board for over a decade straight. From Crystal to Baker this board crushed everything I threw at it, from chutes, cliffs, pillow lines, stomping landings, riding fast, nipple deep, park, pipe to cascade concrete, rain and ice.” - Trevor Phillips
Ride - C-6 Snowboard Binding 2023
The C-6 is designed for all-around performance for the rider that wants the smooth and damp feel of a composite tray underfoot. The Two-Piece Ankle Strap contours to the shape of your boot and provides durability without extra weight. Urethane in the Slimeback™ Highback provides a smooth ride and allows for maximum lateral mobility. The C-Series Performance Chassis pairs an aluminum heelcup with a glass-filled nylon base tray. The aluminum heelcup provides the feel and durability of aluminum where you need it (heelside response) while the composite tray offers a damp and responsive ride. The canted footbed aligns your joints with a 2.5 degree angle while providing more leverage over the tip and tail of your board. Take this binding anywhere, any conditions we promise it won't disappoint.
Lib Tech Snowboards - BRD 2023
Our Split BRD rides the resort so well we built the BRD as a daily driver for powder freaks. The perfect combination of a stable poppy C3 camber body with a big floaty pow loving early rise nose, a freestyle friendly tail and taper for stomped soft snow landings. It’s not always soft so we made sure the BRD rails hardpack and ice with our serrated edge grip technology and rips switch if you are feeling frisky... undercover mogul slasher! Austen Sweetin loves this one so much he took over the art direction and working with his friend Javier gave it a magical new look.
