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.

Apart from flashy new topsheets, the Origins are back unchanged.

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…

The brand new Evolv Series blends the Origin’s playfulness VMT’s precision.

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.
