Product Info

After making its debut as the first women's EC2 board in the Gnu lineup and winning tons of awards and accolades, the GNU Velvet Guru EC2BTX Snowboard is back and ready to rock and roll for another season. The Velvet Guru features an elliptical C2 rocker giving you a mild elliptical camber to the contact points and Banana between your feet for a versatile go anywhere board that excels riding through parks and pipes. Magne-Traction edges give this board superior edge hold on any condition from ice to chunder and pow. The Velvet Guru rode onto superpipe podiums with Kaityln Farrington, and is ready for you to take it there again. *Note: This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.*
