The 2015 GNU Beast Splitboard was recently reviewed by Mountain Weekly News and they Gave it a 5-out-0f-5 star rating. Not only did they like the directional design, they noted on the versatility of the board and how well it performed all around the mountain.
“The GNU Beast Splitboard is a super fun, versatile, surf-rocket-charger. It really does make you feel like slashing every windlip in sight. It could easily be a quiver of one. I really don’t have anything constructive to say about this board, it rips and is fun. What else could you want?” – Nathaniel Murphy from MWN
