Comments about GNU Riders Choice C2PBTX Snowboard 2014:

I'm a 6'5 240 lb snowboarder who's been riding for a few years. This board is pretty cool. It being wide made it so my foot never hung over the edge. It's a pretty stiff board so better for powder and all mountain than riding park with it. It was very solid underneath my feet and I didn't have any problems with catching edges or washing out.

    Comments about GNU Riders Choice C2PBTX Snowboard 2014:

    Great product at a fraction of The Lib Tech labels. Love the side cut & edges. Holds a line like its on rails. Fun pop & flex. I worked in a ski/board shop a few seasons back & with a quiver of rental/demos at my disposal the Riders Choice was a choice I made again & again. When it came time for a new deck it was an easy choice.

      Comments about GNU Riders Choice C2PBTX Snowboard 2014:

      believe the hype about magna-traction, I ride on the ice coast in Vermont. And was always a die-hard Burton-custom rider. didn't think any board could hold a candle to them. WRONG!! The GNU riders-choice is hands down the most fun, easiest, best handling board I ever rode. The first time I hit a ice patch and went to speed check, it held a edge firm, lol And I screamed it really does turn ice into powder I'm also a large rider at 5'11" 240#. I like to ride a shorter board for my weight,(I ride the 158w) and even at high speeds has never gave me board chatter or washed out. Mervin boards for lifeCT

        I used to be a die hard burton guy for years. This board completely changed the way I ride. Love the magna-traction, the rocker, the float of it in powder. Just everything. Love this board!
