Awesome board! I was looking for a board that would allow me to ride the whole mountain and still have some playfulness that one might find in a park board. The Riders Choice nailed it!

    Comments about GNU Rider's Choice C2PTX Snowboard - Blem 2014:

    I ride everything except park, it's awesome.
    Ridiculously light weight and the asymmetry makes riding switch a breeze. I thought the magne traction and camber combos were the zenith of tech revolutions to make riding easier but now this asymmetry making switch riding easier...I almost feel guilty.
    Nope....no I don't.
    I don't do park so I can't say how this board will do there, but I have to imagine it would be perfectly fine.

          Comments about GNU Rider's Choice C2PTX Snowboard - Blem 2014:

          I had to gear up for my first time back on the slopes in about 7 years. Heard about Magne Traction and wanted to try it out. Picked up the Rider's Choice based on some reviews and was very happy. Rode for 4 days at Okemo in mixed conditions. The Rider's Choice handled everything really well, rode nice in some powdery (Northeast variety) conditions, held tight on ice as well as when it warmed up a little and things got a bit faster and chunkier. Board has lots of spring to it. Definitely a sweet ride.

            This snowboard performs great on the whole. I board in the Northeast with icy conditions, so the magne-traction is great when you need the extra traction and stability. While on the west coast, it stayed afloat through the powder sections as well. I highly recommend this board to experienced boarders who are looking for a something to tackle any snowy terrain.
