Liberty Skis: poppy, playful, evolving.
Liberty has enjoyed massive success with their playful, lively, freeride series: the Origins. For years, these do-it-all skis have made a flawless one-ski quiver for western skiers. With the Origins well-established on the freeride scene, Liberty looks to grow their all-mountain/frontside presence with their built-to-rip V Series and the new VMT Evolv.
2020 Liberty Skis Preview: The Origin and Genesis Lines
- Liberty revised the men’s Origin 106 and women’s Genesis 106. They dropped the tip profile on both skis, which will make them easier to turn, but still schmear-y as ever. With a the longer effective edge, they’ll lay trenches better than ever (and they were pretty dang good before). For the big mountain skier, 2020 Origin/Genesis 106 will make an excellent one-ski quiver.
- Why mess with success? The Origin 96 and Genesis 96 are back unchanged in 2020.
- After slimming down from a 116 waist in 2019, the Origin 112 will return unchanged in 2020. Likewise, the Origin Pro comes back untampered, after replacing the Schuster Pro in 2019.
- The Genesis 90 is back in action, though its brother ski, the Origin 90, is gone… but Liberty says they have something special up their sleeves…
2020 Liberty Skis Preview: VMT Highlights
- Liberty releases the VMT Evolv 90 and Evolv 100—a blend of the Origin and V-Series. The VMT 90 replaces the Origin 90, and will share its poppy attitude. But these new boards are built to rip, thanks to a flatter tail and Liberty’s Vertical Metal Technology.
- The men’s VMT series comes back with a few structural updates. The V76, V82, and V92 have stiffer shovels, bolstered with more carbon than 2019 models.
- Brand new for 2020, Liberty introduces a women’s line to the V Series, featuring the V76 W and V82 W. Like the men’s version, the VMT W is built with Liberty’s Vertical Metal Technology, carbon stringers, bamboo, and poplar wood. But the addition of paulownia wood to the women’s line makes them a bit lighter and flexier.
