Easy To Ride All Terrain Freestyle Banana
The B-Nice simply makes riding easier. It’s Banana at it’s best for entry level rippers.It floats in powder like a dream, carves the hardpack and ice and is loose for freestyle fun in the park and all over the mountain. Each of these graphics are visual expressions of the feeling you get when you have the run of your life. Fun, flowing, effortless, and explosive! A perfect combo of banana and Magne-Traction with a friendly flex makes everyone feel Nice. Ridden by true Gnu friends Meg Pugh and Kelly Underwood.

Handbuilt in the USA
Every Gnu is handmade by snowboarders with jobs in the USA.
All terrain rocker placed specifically between your feet where it belongs. Full tip-to-tail edge contact when you stand on your board for all terrain performance. Banana Tech is easy to ride, rips the hardpack and ice, kills the jibs and floats unbelievably. Bananas!
A Gnu sublimation system exclusive oddity. Hard, fast and virtually maintenance free. Loves a good wax job but, still slides well when you forget to wax.
“Turns ice into powder”
Serrated edges give great edge hold all over the mountain especially on hard pack and blue ice!
True Twin Geometries
Twin (equal length and equal width) tip and tails combined with a centered radial sidecut. Rides equally well in both directions with a focus on freestyle. Park, powder, pipe: perfect.

Wood Core Weirdness!
The world’s fastest growing trees in the Gnu Eco Timber farm benefited from a combination of moist evenings, diffused daylight sunshine and being on the north American avian flyway…abundant natural nitrogen from goose and duck droppings resulted in a exceptional harvest of long fibered lightweight poppy woods that we call “nature’s fiberglass”. This very exceptional crop has been carefully seasoned and built into cores and is the light poppy center of our Gnu Snowboards.

Tell me a story about a day on your board:
My first experience at Ms. Superpark was all time and getting to meet and ride with all the shred ladies was awesome! In the morning while the speed was good, I played on the kickers and felt completely stable thanks to Magne-Traction. As the snow softened up, finding lines on the jib island was the place to be. I love the ease and connection I feel with my B-Nice, the banana tech allows immediate responsiveness on the rails so I could finish out the days confident and strong.
