The world's most environmentally friendly construction plus a slew of GNU's signature tech can be found in the GNU 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 factory.
Rocker Type
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
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - 7
Shape
Twin freestyle / freeride geometries
Core
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.
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.
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
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.

Specs

  • Terrain: Freeride, Freestyle
    Freeride
    Freeride snowboards are designed for the rider that spends most of the day off groomed runs and in backcountry terrain. They typically have a stiffer flex and are ridden in longer sizes than freestyle snowboards. Freeride snowboards often feature a directional shape that is designed to perform optimally in one direction.
    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: 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.
