Product Info

The world's most environmentally friendly construction plus a slew of GNU's signature tech can be found in the GNU ECO Genetics C2BTX Snowboard. Made with Banana Tech, Magne-Traction and LCP Liquid Crystal Polymer, this board rips like a hungry tree-hugging grizzly bear just out of hibernation in the middle of a petroleum accounting convention. Highlighting GNU's eco-friendly ways, Adam Haynes' graphics express his interpretation of the GNU factory.

Product Details

Rocker Type

C2 BTX Agro Performance Banana / CamberRocker between your feet combined with radial cambers out to the contact. Aggressive riders enjoy unreal tip and tail control, power and pop combined with the float, freestyle freedom and carving of rocker between the feet.

Flex

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)7

Shape

Twin freestyle / freeride geometries

Core

Core AP2Aspen Paulownia laminate

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.

Laminates

LCP Liquid Crystal Polymer FibersLCP was used as the foundation for the interplanetary Mars lander tires. Built into GNU snowboards these strong light, damp aramid polyester fibers quiet chatter from rough Martian terrain and create an incredibly smooth, poppy, lightweight ride.

Sidewalls

Fast, rugged UHMW 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.

Topsheet

Bio Beans TopsheetGNU has made a commitment to using a new earth friendly, bio-plastic top skin made from beans that features the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any top sheet in the industry. While there is clearly still the need to invade small, helpless, oil producing countries for money and power, this new age of bio-plastics offers hope of a more peaceful and fruity future.
