Product Info

The GNU Dirty Pillow BTX Snowboard is a befuddling mutant hybrid child of a pow board and it's forbidden love affair with a park board. This twin Banana board was conceived with the notion of resort "pow" days where the "pow" isn't really POW . . . If you have to ask, you'll probably never figure it out and you should just click the "back" button now. Tight maneuverability, instantaneous line-adjustment and edge grip meets cool float and mellow shape in the DP.

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 Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)6 - 6.5 (depending on size)


Twin Park / Pow FreestyleA strange concoction of progressive park and powder shape works with a long floaty tip and tail entry curves for floatation in both directions.


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.



Fast, rugged UHMW sidewalls


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.


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.


Co Ex TopPolyester topsheet material


GNU's in-house photographer Tim Zimmerman teamed up with Mr. Danny Zapalac to create a dog-friendly graphic layout.

    Comments about GNU Dirty Pillow BTX Snowboard 2014:

    I love how the board floats like a 159 but turns like a 156. Gnu does this by bring in the contact points on the board so it has a bigger nose and tail. This board is centered but I ride it 3/4" setback, just to make it a little more directional. It rides everything on the mountain very well... Makes everything fun. I take this from the park to the pow covered steeps. I like that the shape is a mellow version of all the tech lib/gnu do out at mervin mgf... Get on one and turn the pow into your play ground

      Comments about GNU Dirty Pillow BTX Snowboard 2014:

      Not just a POW board! This board rides like a dream in the soft snow, but also performs well in variable conditions. It has a mellow flex that sits somewhere between stiff and soft but can get a bit loose if you get into some cascade concrete. All in all, a good option if you want something that can do a little bit of everything.
