Despite looking like it should be hung up in an art gallery, the Lib Tech Terrain Wrecker with it's beautifully designed textured top sheet and surf inspired graphics is real bad-ass on the slopes.
New for 2018, the Terrain Wrecker is the latest addition to the Lib Tech armoury, and as you would expect from Lib Tech, it's a robust and serious piece of kit, with great attention to detail.
Tested in typical extreme spring glacier conditions with driving snow one minute then bluebird sky the next, the Terrain Wrecker handled everything that can be thrown at it.
It cut through uneven terrain with ease and felt stable underfoot at all times. It also felt stable at speed without the slightest hint of chatter. It is an aggressive board that will not tolerate weak riding, but will give buckets loads back when pushed.
The Terrain Wrecker is a twin directional board with a short burst of rocker in-between the binding and then a long camber section under the feet, giving it the best of all worlds.
The edges really lock in which is great for carving. Also, great pop can be initialised with ease and so handles kickers without a care in the world. we also felt it very forgiving even on slightly scrubbed out landings.
Despite being one hell of a mountain charger, the Terrain Wrecker also has a playful element and we had fun messing around with ground tricks and side kickers. Unfortunately, due to the weather, we couldn't test this out in the park.
It is directional, so not the best for spinning out into switch riding, but overall, an accomplished all mountain freestyle board that is bound to be here to stay.
