The C3 profile offers precise carving and control, as well as end-to-end stability.
C3BTX Agro Performance Camber / Banana The new C3BTX is camber the way it should have been designed, with aggressive, dominant cambers out to the contacts and mild rocker between your feet. C3BTX gives skilled riders precise tip and tail control, maximum end to end stability for big, high speed lines, takeoffs and landings. Subtle banana rocker gives freestyle freedom, float and incredible carving.

Comments about GNU Billy Goat C3BTX Snowboard 2014:
I like this board a lot. I've only got 4 powder days on it thus far, but plan on getting many more. Technically I feel very comfortable with the camber/rocker/camber, its a little more subtle than what mervin has been doing in the last few years. You definitely have to keep this board waxed, the base is fast if waxed but not fast a all if you dont wax it, I recommend waxing everytime you ride. This years version of magne-traction is also a little more subtle than years past. I've only hit the groomer a couple times but the edge hold is lock solid. The only negative is it might be little narrow in the waist for me. (10.5 boots) I've noticed my heel cups on my bidngings catching when traversing on steep inclines heelside. I may just need to adjust my stance to avoid this, havent dialed it in. Overall sick board, Trust Mervin Mfg.
