Graphic by Gnu Creative Guru Tim “Pinski” Karpinski. Living in Portland, Oregon, he spends his days pogo sticking around his studio bouncing between designing things, painting things, petting things, planting things, thinking about things, reading things, playing things, listening to things and starring up at the sky. He’s also in the band MEOW. More at: Timothykarpinski.com
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!
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?
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.
2 way fiber orientation. Engineered to make the difficult easy.
