Barrett's C2 Power Freestyle Freeride
This is the board that keeps setting the standard for women’s boards. It’s classic C2BTX / Magne-Traction combination is the perfect balance of camber at each end and Banana Tech between your feet. The camber gives the board end to end stability and pop for big landings, critical lines and aggressive riders while the Banana between your feet makes for great carving on hardpack, ice and easy float in powder and broken variable snow conditions. New this year is LCP for a lightweight, strong, and smooth ride. As the longest running women’s pro-model it has picked up more gold than any other women’s board. It continues to win awards and fans while riding onto the podium of every major event in snowboarding. Don’t put this board into a box, it’s good for everything and our team proves it on big mountains, parks, pipes and everywhere else they take it. Barrett donates a portion of her royalties to Boarding For Breast Cancer.

Compression hardened amorphous UHMW skived from the billet to create the toughest, fastest, best wax holding base material around. Slides best and fastest when waxed regularly to match local snow conditions.
“Turns ice into powder”
Serrated edges give great edge hold all over the mountain especially on hard pack and blue ice!
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!
LCP – Liquid Crystal Polymer
Liquid crystallinity is achieved through the heating of a polymer past its melting point, during the cooling phase polymers form highly organized linearly aligned self- reinforcing structures resulting in incredible mechanical properties. Strength, chemical and fire resistance. Strength in a fiber allows us to use less material to achieve the desired physical performance translating into a lighter weight composite. LCP also has a very low vibration frequency and with 10 times the strength of titanium LCP was used as the foundation for interplanetary Mars lander tires. Built into a Gnu snowboard these strong light, damp aramid polyester fibers quiet chatter from rough terrain and create an incredibly smooth, poppy, lightweight ride.
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.
Mervin AG2 Sustainable Woodcore
MERVIN AG2 SUSTAINABLE WOODCORE: ASPEN / ALT. GENETICS / EISS 9
- Lighter / Stronger. A perfect combination of Aspen, even more ultra lightweight genetically altered wood core and EISS 9. Perfect for freestyle domination.
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:
Once upon a time when ordinary life seemed a little dull, I embarked on a journey in search of an energy vortex that would rebirth my soul. For the first time in 26,000 years, the sun, moon, and constel- lation Pleides aligned in a solar eclipse directly over Mt. Shasta. I entrusted my magical B-Pro split board and together we made the pilgrimage up the mighty south face to the summit. At 6:26pm on May 20, the moon slid completely in front of the sun and a portal opened, denoted by a series of eight radiating circular rainbows of which my shadow was the center. If I jumped, I could spend my life living among the Lemurians in the girth of Mt. Shasta. It was a tough decision, but in the end I realized that split boards would have no use inside the mountain, and I still had plans to ride mine. I waved to the Lemurians as the moon slipped by the sun and the portal closed. Then I strapped into my B-Pro split board and the lovers, the pegasus unicorns, and I rode off the summit of Mt. Shasta in perfect corn snow conditions. My soul has been recharged and I have no regrets.
These split boards share the same tech as the B-pro, one of the top selling women's boards of all time. Split boards aren't just for big mountain hippies anymore! The B-pro splits truly open up a world of adventure and magic to riders of all backgrounds and abilities. I finally got to put a Gnu girls team trip together and squeeze all the activities that I love to do into one week in my home area. We did an S4 trip on the Olympic Peninsula, in Mervin's backyard. Snowboarder Mag will do a better job of telling the story but it was one of those weeks that came together even better than I imagined. Powder to ride, B-Pro splits to access the goods, sunshine to light up the mountain, waves to wake up to, and a fun motivated crew to ride, surf, skate and spa with.
