GNU Carbon Credit BTX Wide Snowboard 2012

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.
Flex
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
Shape
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

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.
