GNU Danny Kass XC2 BTX Snowboard - Blem 2014

You want to channel the inner-board bald eagle eye of fire of a two-time Olympic medalist? then you want the GNU Danny Kass XC2BTX Snowboard. Made with GNU's signature tech this mid wide twin will take you to places you didn't know you could reach without a Great Eagle of Manwë (thats some LOTR knowledge for you fools). Camber on each end for pop and stability plus banana in between your feet makes for float in powder and incredible edgehold on hardpack. *Note: This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.*
Rocker Type
XC2BTX Xtra Agro Performance Banana / Camber - New for 2014, the XC2BTX profile offers tight radius rocker between your feet combined with radial cambers out to the contact. Aggressive riders will love the unreal tip and tail control, power and pop combined with the float, freestyle freedom and carving of rocker between the feet. This profile provides even more tip and tail control than C2 but maintains its freestyle freedom. Great for aggressive pipe and park riders, this board still rips everywhere.
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - 5 - 7 (depending on size)
Shape
Mid wide twin power freestyle
Core
SNF CGA2 - Columbian Gold, Aspen
Laminates
LCP Liquid Crystal Polymer Fibers - LCP was used as the foundation for the interplanetary Mars lander tires. Built into GNU snowboards these strong light, damp aramid polyester fibers quiet chatter from rough Martian terrain and create an incredibly smooth, poppy, lightweight ride.
Sidewalls
Fast, rugged UHMW sidewalls
Base
Sintered Base - Compression hardened amorphous UHMW skived from the billet to create the toughest, fastest, best wax holding base material around. This base slides best and fastest when waxed regularly to match local snow conditions.
Die-cut Base - Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
Edges
Magne-Traction™ - These edges give you better edgehold and make for an easier ride. Serrated edges cut into the snow like a knife giving you more edgehold and control than ever before. Magne-Traction™ features 7 strategically located and sized bumps along each side of your sidecut.
Topsheet
Co Ex Top - Polyester topsheet material
Graphics
San Francisco artist and storyteller Jeremy Fish and Danny worked together on his latest graphic which represents Danny's reverence for Native American traditions.

Specs

  • Terrain: Freestyle
    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: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • 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.
  • Flex Rating: Stiff
    Stiff
    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.
