Product Info

"Bow chika wow! That is a beaut I would like to take for a ride." The GNU Beauty XC2 BTX Snowboard is crafted with aggressive XC2 BTX which places a small region of stability-aiding rocker between your feet, with camber out to the contact points for precision, power and pop. Offset with a medium flex and Mini Magne-Traction™, these features work in tandem to make maneuvering easy if things get dicey. Equip yourself with the board to conquer it all - just like legendary pro shredder Barrett Christy.
