Billy Goat Split

Temple's freeride tool!
Temple likes pow. He chose Mt. Baker as his home mountain for a reason. World record snow fall. He spent years learning lines at Baker discovering increasingly more challenging Billy Goat lines partly in search of a challenge and partly in search of pow stashes that he could count on being unmolested no matter how long after a storm. With increasing pressure on all the “relatively” easily accessed inbounds lines and Mt. Bakers deep talent pool Temple has opened his eyes towards the virtually unlimited NW backcountry possibilities. His Billy Goat splits offer him endless access to what he craves…uncrowded steeps and pow. Add the peace and tranquility of uncrowded quality time in the forests and mountains, the satisfaction of doing it yourself and the Billy Goat Splits transform into magical vehicles that transport you to the best days of your year and runs of your life. Temples favorite time tested C2 BTX Magne-Traction freeride geometries split in two.

Handbuilt in the USA
Every Gnu is handmade by snowboarders with jobs in the USA.
C2 Floats the pow, kills the jumps and steeps and has the pop and tip to tail stability to stomp whatever you launch. Banana Tech Rocker between your feet, camber at the tips and tails. The perfect solution for aggressive power snowboarding.
Karakoram Splitboard Clips optimize the performance of your splitboard. They firmly secure the splitboard halves together, eliminating slop in the seam. Say goodbye to tip and tail rattling forever – your splitboard will ride as a normal snowboard in all conditions.
Board Clips – Patent Pending custom latch system firmly secures splitboard together providing the tightest board seam possible.
Tip and Tail Clip - Made from Dupont Zytel ST for increased rigidity and durability to reduce unwanted tip and tail clip disconnections.
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!
Directional Twin Shape
Longer tip than tail combined with a centered radial sidecut. Rides great in both directions. Focus is on all-mountain freestyle freeriding, excels in powder, nose floats and shorter tail reduces surface area for added deep snow control.
Thin polymer sheet that covers entire board and absorbs chatter and vibrations. Adds a little weight giving the board more stability and directional momentum in broken snow and crud. Perfect for maritime snow conditions seen in Tahoe, Oregon, Washington, BC, Alaska, Japan, Pyrenees and or east coast ice. Excells at speed and critical line situations. Temple has won the banked slalom four times on it and ridden countless Billy Goat Lines.
Mervin BA Sustainable Core
MERVIN BA SUSTAINABLE WOODCORE: BIRCH / ASPEN
- Super damp and dense. Solid pop and crud blasting stability at speed.
Wood Core Weirdness!
The world’s fastest growing trees in Gnu’s Altered Genetic forest produced an exceptional harvest of long fibered light weight poppy wood that we call “nature’s fiberglass.” This select crop has been carefully seasoned and built into cores and is the light poppy center of many of our favorite Gnu snowboards. Got any fungus?
