    Comments about GNU B-Pro C2BTX Splitboard 2013:

    I'm just getting started with the splitboarding thing and didn't get out nearly enough for my liking due to school & work obligations not to mention weather cooperation, but the few times I was able to use this board, I had a blast! It sure beats boot-packing! I didn't have any issues with it, but like I said, I only went a couple times in spring like conditions. I plan on beating it up way worse next season... I'm always a fan of the C2 and magne-traction.

    Comments about GNU B-Pro C2BTX Splitboard 2013:

    I use this to tour about 4 times a week. I'm getting a lot of use out of it. I am fairly disappointed, however, with the lamination. It seems to be lifting on the nose and the tail on the inner edge. The de-lam is interfering with the hook that keeps my board together and as a result my board rattles a bit expecially when I get on hard packed snow.

    I've talked with other girls that ride this same board and we all agree that because of the rockered camber, we have less surface area touching when we're skinning up. This means that we have less grip. It will be difficult on icy skin tracks.

    Aside from the first two points, I would recommend this board to all my friends. I haven't tried any other splitboards but owning this board has opened up a world of opportunity. I never have a bad line! The magnatraction and rocker are awesome for every descent. The graphic is also a huge selling point for me. It's gorgeous!
