ECO Genetics C2BTX Snowboard. Made with Banana Tech, Magne-Traction and LCP Liquid Crystal Polymer, this board rips like a hungry tree-hugging grizzly bear just out of hibernation in the middle of a petroleum accounting convention. Highlighting GNU
's eco-friendly ways, Adam Haynes' graphics express his interpretation of the GNU
C2 BTX Agro Performance Banana / Camber - Rocker between your feet combined with radial cambers out to the contact. Aggressive riders enjoy unreal tip and tail control, power and pop combined with the float, freestyle freedom and carving of rocker between the feet.
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - 7
Twin freestyle / freeride geometries
Core AP2 - Aspen Paulownia laminate
Sustainable Natural Fiber - GNU builds boards with fast growing farmed eco woods selected specifically for their long fibers, light weight, strength, long lasting pop and great feel. Wood is Nature's fiberglass.
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.
Fast, rugged UHMW sidewalls
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.
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.
Bio Beans Topsheet - GNU has made a commitment to using a new earth friendly, bio-plastic top skin made from beans that features the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any top sheet in the industry. While there is clearly still the need to invade small, helpless, oil producing countries for money and power, this new age of bio-plastics offers hope of a more peaceful and fruity future.
