Another killer day in 2013 land.

The Gnu Rider's Choice 2013 looks sick:



Gnu Metal Guru 2013 is a new model with ec2 (biradial) video soon.



Not much question what Lib Tech built the 2013 Birdman for



The Lib Tech TRS 2013 looks mean.



The New Lib Tech Horsepower:



Bataleon's Airobic 2013:



Bataleon Evil Twin 2013:



The whole Lobster line for 2013 fits in one picture

Lib Tech decks looking sick. Are they putting edges all the way around yet? (Or shouldn't I care?)

I really like that new heritage graphic, almost wish I waited considering I haven't even rode my 2012 yet cause the snow is so bad.

I was too distracted by that lady friend of yours WiredSports. Do the Lib Techs look nice?

By the way, Lib Tech will likely never do a full wrap. They have this special bonding on the tips that is supposedly more durable than having edges around it. I guess some of the reps was showing our buyer the durability by slamming the tips of a board repeatedly into the ground.

I'm still not sold on that, but w/e.

The Raptor and Heritage top sheets look sick. The cobra does seem to be lacking a little something, but that will be interesting when vince posts pics of the production top sheet. Can't wait until some of you guys get to demo the Cobra and hear your thoughts on it.

I dig the graphics on my Proto and I was amazed at how much different (in a good way) it looked in person. All the Carbonium top sheets look even better in person.

Loving the fact that NS keeps their ear to the street and listens its consumers.

Those flows look nasty too. Hopefully I'll be able to demo those sometime soon. Hopefully they perform as good as they look as I dont put to much emphasis on speed of getting in/out.

Here is a little bit about the board. This all mountain board has blunt tips similar to the Proto and is a little more drawn out in the nose. The tail is spaded like the F1 Premier but then blunted. Giving the board lower swing weight while allowing the tail to sink and nose to plane off in deep pow or heavy wet snow. Also we'll be using lower tip/tail kicks to produce more of a planing and less of a plowing effect. Set back and flex of an SL/Legacy/Heriatge with all the Carbonium features. Offered in our most popular SL/Legacy sizes; 153,155,158,161 and 164 (we dropped the 164 SL). The Cobra X mid-wide will come in 159,161 and 163. This will be one of the highest performance and most versatile boards ever made.

Snowolf pegged it, The Cobra is kind of cross between an Heriatge and a Proto.
Thanks for sharing this Vince. Someone mentioned wider nose than tail. Is the board actually tapered, or is it just the different nose & tail shapes, a la the Premier?

This is classic Americana right here. Competition driving innovation. Gnu listened to its peeps that love rear entry with a conventional 2 strap feel. The whole line now gets a full ratchet that locks and fully releases. The toe strap is conforming, minimal an comfy. Here is the vid:
