Product Info

GNU Carbon Credit BTX Wide Snowboard 2012: Showing the beginners and progressors how fun snowboarding really is, the GNU Carbon Credit BTX Wide Snowboard is built to ride. This all-terrain freestyle performance board has a mid-level flex and features Banana Rocker technology and Magne-Traction for a superior ride, great pop and ultimate edge hold.

Product Details


Flex Rating: 4-6 (Depending on size) (1 Soft-10 Stiff): The GNU Carbon Credit BTX is built for beginner to intermediate riders looking to step up to a board that wants to excel as much as they do.

Construction and Core

Mervin A.5 Sustainable Aspen wood core is lightweight and poppy, nicknamed “nature’s fiberglass” for a reason.

Bi-axial glass has 2 way fiber orientation making the difficult easy

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.

Sandwich construction


True Twin combined with a centered radial sidecut, means this board rides perfectly in both directions on any terrain

Sidewalls, Edges and Base

EISS 5 UHMW Sidewalls have tough extrerior laminated to 5 layers of endgrain birch on the inside

Magne-Traction 0.75 Shred technology gives better edge hold and makes for an easier ride. Magne-Traction edges cut into the snow like a knife giving you more edge hold and control. Magne-Traction has 7 distinct contact points strategically placed for tip/tail control while maintaining freestyle freedom

CX 2500 base is hard, fast and virtually maintenance free

    Comments about GNU Carbon Credit BTX Wide Snowboard 2012:

    This is the best snowboard I have ever ridden. I have been riding for 23 years and owned dozens of boards. This board rocks. I am riding the wide model because I have big feet, and for a wide board this is more responsive then any door I have ridden and feels like a narrow board with no overhang. This board has re-invented the sport for me. Mervin deserves an hugeass award for snowboard technological innovation. I normally would not even bother to write a review, but this board deserves free ipod style advertising from peeps who know. Get this board you will not be sorry!

    Comments about GNU Carbon Credit BTX Wide Snowboard 2012:

    Over the years I've rode these from a 150 to a 162W and they are always a poppy blast. This one is no different it is awesome the mag and rocker together make it a very playful, edge-holden, real big pop havin, great board to ride. Buy it small for jibs, medium for park, big for all-mountain, bigger for big mountain I would take this flex pattern for any of em, and would feel confident riding almost anything. It's also got good-woods up the kazoo for best under $400 and it really is true, best value board ever!
