GNU Impossible EC2PBTX Snowboard - Blem 2014

GNU's A.S.S technicians have incorporated some revolutionary mind-controlling design concepts into the award dominating GNU Impossible EC2PBTX Snowboard. More letters in one name than you can throw an onomatopoeia at. EC2PBTX tells you exactly what the board is about, a one board quiver killer for all-mountain high-tech performance. The Twin A.S.S. shape is state-of-the-art in the purest form and is probably different (asymmetrical) from any board you have ridden before. Read up, then shred down. *Note: This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.*
Rocker Type
EC2 PBTX - The perfect quiver killer filler, the EC2 PBTX shape rides halfway between Banana Tech and C2. It effortlessly floats the pow, slaps the jibs and has the pop and tip-to-tail stability to totally stomp whatever you launch. Banana Rocker between your feet, elliptical camber at the tips and tails. Only eat the freshest bananas.
 
Flex
Flex Rating - 5.5 - 6 Depending on size
Shape
Twin Asymmetrical Symmetric Syncronization Freestyle Shape and Geometries - Your body is asymmetric heel to toe and your board should be too. This board is designed to work with your body’s natural asymmetries…balancing your toe and heelside and playing to the strengths of each side's mechanics to enhance control and performance.
Core
Sustainable Natural Fiber - GNU 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.
Asym APCG - Aspen, Palonia, Columbian Gold
Laminates
Odd Metal Magnesium Fiberglass - Magnesium is dubiously light, incredibly strong, tastes gnarly, is explosively flammable (remember high school science class?) and burns white hot. Experiment and expand your mind with the Magnesium fiber technology we built into every Gnu Impossible Asym. Sym. Sync. Pickle. WARNING do not store your Impossible near woodstoves, fireplaces or that smoke-show red head.
Sidewalls
Fast, rugged UHMW sidewalls
Base
Sintered Base - Compression 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.
Die-cut Base - Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
Edges
Magne-Traction - Serrated edges give great edgehold all over the mountain, especially on hard pack and blue ice!
Topsheet
Bio Beans Topsheet - GNU 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.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freeride
    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.
    Freeride
    Freeride snowboards are designed for the rider that spends most of the day off groomed runs and in backcountry terrain. They typically have a stiffer flex and are ridden in longer sizes than freestyle snowboards. Freeride snowboards often feature a directional shape that is designed to perform optimally in one direction.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Camber/Rocker/Camber
    Camber/Rocker/Camber
    Camber/Rocker/Camber is a profile that’s specific to snowboards and which works because the rider’s weight flattens the two cambered areas. This design produces a strong, pressured carving zone between the rider’s feet and retains pop and carving precision at the tip and tail.
  • Flex Rating: Medium
    Medium
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
