GNU B-Nice BTX (Yago) Snowboard - Women's 2013

The GNU B-Nice BTX (Yago) Snowboard makes your life easier, whether it’s floating untracked pow or launching freestyle fun in the park. Banana Tech rocker underfoot and Magne Traction edges make this board carve like crazy, while the BTX tip and tail keep it loose and forgiving.
Rocker Type
Banana Technology (BTX) - All terrain rocker placed specifically where it belongs, between your feet, creates a nearly flat profile from outside the binding to tip and tail with full tip-to-tail edge contact when you stand on your board for all terrain performance. Banana tech is easy to ride, rips the hard pack and ice, kills the jibs, and floats the powder unbelievably.
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - 4-5 (depending on size)
Medium flex handles everything from corduroy, powder, to big mountain obstacles. It's built for riders who enjoy plentiful response but still need a forgiving board for progressing skills.
Shape
True Twin - Twin (equal length and equal width) tip and tails combined with a centered radial sidecut rides equally well in both directions with a focus on freestyle. Park, powder, pipe: perfect.
Core
A.5 Sustainable Woodcore - Full Aspen with EISS 5 edge pop / strength
Laminates
Bi-Axial Glass - 2 way fiber orientation is engineered to make the difficult easy.
Edges
Magne-Traction™ - These edges give you better edgehold and make for an easier ride. Serrated edges cut into the snow like a knife giving you more edgehold and control than ever before. Magne-Traction™ features 7 strategically located and sized bumps along each side of your sidecut.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freestyle
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • Ability Level: Beginner-Intermediate
    Beginner-Intermediate
    Someone who is new to the sport or working on linking smoother turns falls into this ability level. Typical beginner ski/snowboard qualities include: softer materials, narrower widths, and capped constructions. The idea is to create a ride that is easy to turn and very forgiving in case you become off balance or fall in the back seat. The addition of rocker in the tip and tail gives a catch-free feeling and shorter contact length when the ski/snowboard is flat on the snow, making it easier to turn.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker
    Rocker
    A rocker board side profile is the opposite of a camber board, with a smooth downward curvature to it and less edge contact length when the board is weighted. Rocker boards float well in powder and pivot more easily underfoot. They also tend to be less “hooky” at both tip and tail and better for landing spin maneuvers when you don’t quite have enough rotation.
