Product Info

The TNSNOW Good Wood winner, the GNU Carbon Credit BTX Snowboard, features award winning, easy-to-ride technology and is handmade in the good ol' U.S. of A. by weirdo snowboarders with jobs. The Carbon credit is a tool of progression and makes your life on the snow that much easier with its banana tech between your feet. *Note: This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.*

Product Details

Rocker Type

BTXGNU's BTX rocker profile places rocker between your feet, that transcends from flat to mild camber out to the contact points (tip and tail). This mellow blend of rocker and camber results in smooth riding, responsive turning, catch free jibbing and an epic float in pow.

Flex

Flex Rating: 4.5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)This board has a forgiving flexibility rating of 4.5. Riders who use the entire mountain as their playground will benefit from this playful, versatile and damp flex rating.

Shape

Twin All Terrain GeometriesA symmetrical shape gives you equally precise performance riding regular or switch. This shape designed is to tackle the entire mountain from pow to park.

Core

Sustainable Natural FiberGNU builds boards with fast growing farmed eco woods selected specifically for their long fibers, light weight, strength, long lasting pop and great feel. Wood is Nature's fiberglass.

A1 (Aspen)Light and strong

Sidewalls

    Comments about GNU Carbon Credit BTX Snowboard - Blem 2014:

    This is the first board I've owned, and it's great so far. I got it at the end of the season, and so the only time I was able to ride, the snow was all hard pack and ice. This board lived up to its reputation and cut right through it, but I still struggled a bit since I was used to riding other types of boards. The hybrid shape makes it really easy to turn (it basically turns itself), but might decrease stability or make it hard to do some things like ride rails. Overall, it's a great board for my uses (all-mountain) and I can't wait to use it in the park.

      This is a great board, not super fast but I prefer a wider board because I am shorter but have bigger feet.

        Great board for an overall riding experience. Has great pop also the BTX feature has saved me in some tight situations. Really digs without catching an edge. Beautiful graphic that looks way better in person, have had tons of compliments.

              Board basically rides itself. Cuts right through ice I know my old board wouldn't hold the edge on. Incredibly fun to ride.
