Product Info

You want to channel the inner-board bald eagle eye of fire of a two-time Olympic medalist? then you want the GNU Danny Kass XC2BTX Snowboard. Made with GNU's signature tech this mid wide twin will take you to places you didn't know you could reach without a Great Eagle of Manwë (thats some LOTR knowledge for you fools). Camber on each end for pop and stability plus banana in between your feet makes for float in powder and incredible edgehold on hardpack.

Product Details

Rocker Type

XC2BTX Xtra Agro Performance Banana / CamberNew for 2014, the XC2BTX profile offers tight radius rocker between your feet combined with radial cambers out to the contact. Aggressive riders will love the unreal tip and tail control, power and pop combined with the float, freestyle freedom and carving of rocker between the feet. This profile provides even more tip and tail control than C2 but maintains its freestyle freedom. Great for aggressive pipe and park riders, this board still rips everywhere.

Core

SNF CGA2Columbian Gold, Aspen

Laminates

Sidewalls

Base

Sintered BaseCompression hardened amorphous UHMW skived from the billet to create the toughest, fastest, best wax holding base material around. This base slides best and fastest when waxed regularly to match local snow conditions.

Edges

Magne-Traction™The hot commodity in edge-technology; Magne-Traction maximizes your edge hold between your feet so you have better control and stability even on the iciest slopes. Magne-Traction varies in the serration depending on the board; regardless it will deliver a catch free ride any day. Magne-Traction™ features 7 strategically located and sized bumps along each side of your sidecut.

Comments about GNU Danny Kass XC2BTX Snowboard 2014:

The Danny Kass is one rad pro model, if you love DK then get it. I rode this board when the snow was really soft and I loved the way you were still able to grip good turns and have control in the terrain park. I ride a lot of park and this board can preform pretty well in there. If you are looking for a board that is slightly more powder oriented but can take laps in the park then this would be a pretty good choice for you. The Camber underfoot gives you a good board feel while the rocker between your feet lets you really float in the powder. The serrated edges are pretty great for knocking through ice too.
