When it comes to the GNU Riders Choice pros know snowboarders are asymmetrical from front to back, and turn mechanics are vastly different from toe side to heel side. Crepel, Warbington, Blake Paul and the Weird Science Team at Gnu have incorporated 4 unique balancing design concepts that harmonize and harness our natural bio-mechanics, and built them into the award winning riders choice. C2 Banana camber combo geometries provide confidence building end-to-end stability, pop and control at critical moments, Banana tech provides incredible float in pow and limitless catch free freestyle progression

C2 BTX - Solid tip and tail pressured withRocker between your feet combined with radial cambers out to the contact. Freestyle freedom and carving of rocker between the feet for a more aggressive ride.
Pickle technology - makes snowboards easier and more intuitive to ride through the application of unique balancing design elements to each side of the board that harmonize with your bodies natural asymmetry and the unique toeside and heelside snowboard activation mechanics. Turn mechanics on your toe and heelside are completely different. The angle of attack you can achieve on a toe side turn is much steeper than what is possible on a heelside turn because of ankle, knee and hip dynamics. Toes are like fingers offering much more precise edge control. Heels line up directly under your ankle and legs offering a powerful direct connection to the heelside edge. "Imperceptible Perfection" - Ride a pickle and after a few runs as your board and body become one snowboarding will become intuitive and you won't feel the asymmetry as much as you will notice you are a better snowboarder and having more fun. Gnu has developed 5 pickle tech balancing design elements. Balance Through Asymmetry

HANDCRAFTED IN THE USA NEAR CANADA!
BITCHIN’ BOARD BUILDERS We build snowboards. We build snowboards. No really… that is what we do. We don’t order them from China or anywhere else and send someone to go check and see how they turned out. We physically hand build them right here at home in the USA.
