The Swiss Knife HP C3 from Lib Tech - Fredi Kalbermatten's pro-model is built like the man himself. Big and burly, yet precise, playful and jibby. The Swiss Knife is designed to be just that a multi-purpose sliding tool for carving up the big mountain lines of Saas Fee, hitting deep pillow drops, and carving through the groomers.
Horsepower construction keeps things fast
Horsepower (HP) Construction is lighter, environmentally nicer and smoother. It features a 60/40 Aspen/Paulownia Wood Core for predictable pop and durability with a Tri-Ax/Bi-Ax Glass & Basalt Layup for dampening and torsional stiffness. End-grain Birch Internal Sidewalls are capped with UHMW Sintered Sidewalls for maximum impact resistance. The Tip/Tail construction is slimmed down which reduces swing weight for spin-ability.
The Swiss Knife's C3 Directional Camber profile combines a long and floaty nose with mellower camber up front and mild between-feet rocker for a more forgiving ride. A medium-stiff flex pattern makes for a precise but aggressive ride that smashes with full-force.
