GNU Impossible Series EC2BTX Snowboard 2012

Tech here, tech everywhere! The GNU Impossible Series EC2BTX Snowboard is loaded with more tech than any other GNU board before it. Built for aggressive riders ready to take on every inch and mile of the mountain, the GNU Impossible Series has Elliptical C2 Twin Asymmetric Banana Magne-Traction tech, strong Magnesium fibers and rugged Bio Beans in the top sheet. Balancing, turning, floating and stomping never felt as good as with the GNU Impossible Series, EC2BTX Snowboard; embrace the bounty!
Rocker Type
EC2 Banana Technology (EC2 BTX) - EC2 rides halfway between Banana Tech and C2. Rocker between the feet, elliptical camber at the tip and tail: It effortlessly floats the pow, kills the jibs, and has the pop and tip-to-tail stability to stomp whatever you launch.
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - 6-7 (depending on size), A stiffer board for those who shred the whole hill like it’s nobody’s business.
Shape
Symmetrical nose and tail shape
Sidecut
Pickle Technology - Asymmetric sidecuts and construction balance the different turning mechanics requires for heelside and toeside turns. There is a deeper sidecut on your heel edge. Your body is asymmetric, your snowboard should be asymmetric.
Core
Columbian Gold Wood Core - Incredibly light, strong, poppy and possibly weirdest most impossible core yet.
Laminates
Magnesium Fiberglass - Impossibly light, incredibly strong, tastes bitter is explosively flammable and burns white hot. Experiment and expand your mind with the Magnesium fiber technology.
Sidewalls
Glow In The Dark Sidewalls - Contains phosphors. A phosphor is a substance that radiates visible light after being energized.
Base
Sintered 9900 Alloy - Continuous 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.
Topsheet
Bio-Polymer - A bio-plastic top skin made from beans that features the highest strength-to-weight ration of any top sheet in the industry.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freestyle
    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.
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • 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: Rocker
    Rocker
    A rocker board side profile is the opposite of a camber board, with a smooth downward curvature to it and less edge contact length when the board is weighted. Rocker boards float well in powder and pivot more easily underfoot. They also tend to be less “hooky” at both tip and tail and better for landing spin maneuvers when you don’t quite have enough rotation.
  • Flex Rating: Stiff
    Stiff
    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.
