2023 GNU Riders Choice Snowboard
From design to performance GNU's riders had a heavy hand on this one. Asymmetry, slightly wider waist widths that rail, float and poppy stable C2 hybrid contours that slide, carve and plane. An unreal eco construction that is built to blast and last. It’s quite possibly the best board they've have ever made.
*Base colors may vary
C2X Technology – A shorter, more aggressive banana rocker combined with cambers that sit more underfoot. Extra solid tip and tail pressure for power, pop, precision and end-to-end stability combined with a medium amount of pressure between your feet for carving, edge hold on ice and float in pow.
Flex Rating – Medium
Asymmetry – The human body is asymmetric. Turn mechanics on a toe and heel side turn are completely different. GNU builds in asymmetric balancing concepts to each side of your snowboard harmonizing with nature and creating a more efficient, less tiring, unreal ride.
Level 2 Asym Scale | Sidecut, Core & Contacts – Asymmetric wood core allows for softer flexing on the heelside. There is also a deeper sidecut on the heelside and asymmetric contact angles and length. Shorter heelside contact.
Asym Core - Balsa / Aspen / Paulownia II / III Heels – Sustainably harvested, lightest, strong, and poppy.
Tri-Ax / Bi-Ax – A glass and fiber reinforcement combination to give the snowboard a long life and plenty of pop.
UHMW – Ultra High Molecular Weight exterior sidewalls made from soy-based elastomer are laminated to five internal wood layers for totally bombproof sidewalls.
Sintered Knife-Cut – Fast, tough and holds wax.
Magne-Traction® – Unreal edge hold; 7 strategically located and sized edge serrations provide unreal edge hold and control in all conditions.
Eco Sublimated Poly Top – Tough and environmentally nice.
