Product Info

You can call this board the progressive park powder freestyler. This may sound confusing but once you get a ride on the GNU Dirty Pillow BTX Snowboard you’ll never go back. This twin Banana mellow Magne-Traction design features a long floaty tip and tail to enter powder turns at high speeds, float with more power and short banana contact for great contact on the hardpack. The GNU Dirty Pillow eats up everything from hardpack, park rails, cat tracks, even ice and crud; just one ride is all you need to get hooked.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Banana Technology (BTX)All terrain rocker placed specifically where it belongs, between your feet. Full tip-to-tail edge contact when you stand on your board for all terrain performance. Banana tech is easy to ride, rips the hard pack and ice, kills the jibs, and floats the powder unbelievably.

Flex

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)6, Medium-stiff flex allows the perfect amount of cushion and the perfect amount of support under foot.

Shape

True TwinTwin (equal length and equal width) tip and tails combined with a centered radial sidecut rides equally well in both directions with a focus on freestyle. Park, powder, pipe: perfect.

Core

AG1 Sustainable WoodcoreA perfect combination of Aspen, ultra lightweight genetically altered wood core, and EISS 9

Laminates

Quasi Glass4 way fiber orientation 0/45/45/90. Triaxial and biaxial glass combo for max pop and control. Vectran liquid crystal polymer was developed as the fiber foundation for inter-planetary Mars lander tires and has 10 times the strength of titanium.

Sidewalls

EISS 9 UHMW SidewallsTough UHMW sidewalls on the exterior laminated to 9 layers of endgrain birch on the inside. Bombproof and gives the board massive pop. Good on rails.

Base

Sintered 9900 AlloyContinuous compression formed for molecular elongation, preserving its amorphous polymer structure, for maximum wax absorption, and durability: It's tough and fast.

Edges

Magne-Traction™Gives better edge hold and makes for an easier ride. Serrated edges cut into the snow like a knife giving you more edge hold and control than ever before. Magne-Traction™ features 7 strategically located and sized bumps along each side of your sidecut.

    Comments about GNU Dirty Pillow BTX Snowboard 2012:

    Works great on icy and packed snow conditions. It carves into the mountian like no other board I've ever had.
