GNU Metal Guru EC2BTX Snowboard 2013

Go ahead, sell the quiver and simplify your life; the GNU Metal Guru EC2BTX Snowboard will do it all. Catch-free jibbing? Check. Float in pow? Check. Rail on hardpack and ice? Check. This all terrain freestyle board features Magne-Traction, an environmentally friendly construction, and Elliptical Camber Banana Tech rocker to keep you covered in any conditions.
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) - 4-5 (depending on size)
Shape
True Twin - Twin (equal length and equal width) tip and tails combined with a centered radial sidecut rides equally well in both directions with a focus on freestyle. Park, powder, pipe: perfect.
Core
AG1 Sustainable Woodcore - A perfect combination of Aspen, ultra lightweight genetically altered wood core, and EISS 9
Laminates
Triaxial Glass reinforcement
Edges
Magne-Traction™ - These edges give you better edgehold and make for an easier ride. Serrated edges cut into the snow like a knife giving you more edgehold and control than ever before. Magne-Traction™ features 7 strategically located and sized bumps along each side of your sidecut.

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: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • 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.
