Product Info

Goats seek out some of the steepest terrain and scramble up and down with ease, and now you can ride the steepest and deepest terrain at the highest speeds on your GNU Billy Goat C3 BTX Snowboard. Even in the worst conditions, Magne-Traction™ .5 sets you up for success with bulletproof edge hold. This speed-stick was inspired by Temple Cummings, who knows a thing or two about speed and stability - he's won four Baker Banked Slaloms! Temple's winning combination of C3 BTX, ANVITEX Dampening+ and a directional twin shape work for him and they'll work for you, too. The GNU Billy Goat C3 BTX Snowboard devours anything in it's path just like a goat does, and that's a good thing.

    Comments about GNU Billy Goat C3 BTX Snowboard 2016:

    Bought this in the 162W to serve as a freeride/powder stick. Rockered boards don't really do it for me so this seamed like the best option. Seriously considered the Arbor Steepwater but in the end decided to stick w/ Mervin. Love the aggressive C3 profile (great carving, quick edge to edge, good pop) but it has enough setback and width to still float about as well as a cambered board could. Probably the main attribute that I notice w/ this board is the dampening. It works well for me since I purposely got it in a longer length and it is VERY STABLE at high speed, but I wonder if it may affect its freestyle abilities as I feel like it does take away from the pop somewhat. Overall I feel like this is a very versatile board for the aggressive rider. A great bomber that can be pushed into service for just about anything. Sick graphic. And it's made in the US.
