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.
EC2BTX EC2BTX is a solid combination of rocker and mellow camber profiles. Underfoot you received the stability and pop of rocker that transitions into a subtle elliptical camber towards the tip and tail. You will love riding everywhere on this vibration-free, forgiving and responsive stick.
Flex Rating 5.5 - 6 Depending on size
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.
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
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.
Fast, rugged UHMW sidewalls
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.
Magne-Traction Serrated edges give great edgehold all over the mountain, especially on hard pack and blue ice!
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.
