Product Info

A nice board at a nice price, the GNU B-Nice BTX (Fumi) Snowboard does it all! Built with Banana Tech, a sustainable wood core and Magne-Traction, the GNU B-Nice floats, carves and is so much fun. Easy riding makes lady riders happy.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Fun and easy to ride, Banana Rocker Technology (BTX) applies more pressure inward to the edge area at and between your feet. While your stance presses out the rocker, the tip and tail are still flat for enough stability without sacrificing float.

Flex

Flex Rating: 4-5 (Depending on size) (1 Soft-10 Stiff): Magne-Traction is specialized snowboard geometry making boards easier to ride and ideal for lady riders from entry level to ripper status.

Construction and Core

Mervin A.5 Eco farmed wood core with Sandwich construction and Bi-axial glass is light in weight without sacrificing stability and performance.

Shape

Directional Twin has a longer tip than tail combined with a centered radial sidcut; the nose floats and the shorter tail reduces surface area for added deep snow control

Banana Rocker tip and tail, traditional camber underfoot

Sidewalls, Edges and Base

EISS 5 UHMW Sidewalls: sidewall laminated to 5 layers of endgrain birch on the inside

Magne-Traction serrated sidecut has 7 points of contact to turn ice into powder.

CX 2500 base is durable and ready to hammer.

Graphics – Geometric top art designed by Fumi Watanabe.

Comments about GNU B-Nice BTX (Fumi) Snowboard - Women's 2012:

"I feel like this board would be awesome for any ability type. It was very smooth, and easy to ride, and the magnitraction made the board feel very stable, and helped lock in an edge, even on ice and hard pack.
Not a ton of pop, but still fun for any snow condition.

      Comments about GNU B-Nice BTX (Fumi) Snowboard - Women's 2012:

      I LOVE this board. I was riding a Burton which was OK for a beginner (I guess) but I could have been riding this board a lot sooner. It is so much fun. I really like the fact that the edges at the ends are nonexistent so there is no catching. The board is really light weight compared to my other one. It carves like a hot knife through butter. I know that this is a 'hip' board to ride but I am 67 years old and I got it because I wanted something that was more stable on the icy spots on the mountain. It performs like a dream. I am so happy I got it. I feel like the little pig in the insurance commercial with the windmills going "Wheeeeee, wheeee!" all the way down the mountain! Thanks Gnu for a great ride! (I already got one of my friends to purchase one. Now I'm working on my daughter.)

        Comments about GNU B-Nice BTX (Fumi) Snowboard - Women's 2012:

        I was in need of a firmer board with speed and new technology. This board has met my needs. I am faster and feel and increased stability on the board. My turns are sharper and controlled. I love the design and colors of the board as well.

          Bought this board after being on my old GNU Barrett Christy for a few years. The BTX technology which makes for easy maneuvering rocks. I would highly recommend this board for a beginner, but its fun for everyone!
