GNU Riders Choice 2024 Snowboard
New 3-D Delightwood Asym Chip construction on proven Asym geometries distribute energy to your edges and elevate pop, power and performance. The Gnu squad had a heavy hand in this one combining; asymmetry, slightly wider widths that rail and float with C2 Hybrid contours that pop, slide, carve and lift. All laminated into an eco-minded construction with poppy carbon that is built to blast and last. It’s quite possibly the best snowboard we have ever made!
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.
3-D Asym Chip power platforms - Distribute energy to your edges and elevate pop, power and performance.
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.
