GNU Velvet Guru EC2BTX Snowboard - Women's 2014

GNU
Shop all GNU
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.
Rocker Type
EC2 BTX - This profile is the perfect quiver killer filler. The EC2 PBTX shape rides halfway between Banana Tech and C2. EC2 BTX effortlessly floats the pow, slaps the jibs and has the pop and tip-to-tail stability to totally stomp whatever you launch. Banana Rocker between your feet complements elliptical camber at the tips and tails. Only eat the freshest bananas.
Flex
Flex 4-5 Depending on Size - Medium flex handles everything from corduroy, powder, to big mountain obstacles. It's built for riders who enjoy plentiful response but still need a forgiving board for progressing skills.
Shape
Twin Freestyle / All Terrain - A symmetrical shape for equally precise performance riding regular or switch. This shape designed is to tackle the entire mountain from pow to park.
Core
SNF CGA.5 (Aspen, Columbian Gold.5) - Ultra light and strong
Sidewalls
Fast, rugged UHMW sidewalls
Base
Co Sintered Base - Eco-sublimation compatible, fast rugged, maximum wax retention.
Edges
Magne-Traction - Serrated edges give great edgehold all over the mountain, especially on hard pack and blue ice!

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.
  • Shape: True Twin
  • 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.
