Magic carpet ride! Power freestyle twin C2-BTX banana!
NEW! Danny Kass is an American hero who’s Banana is pretty awesome! He spent years in the pipe refining it to perfection in an environment where carrying a fast line through the flat bottom is the difference between victory and defeat and controlled pop off the lip is the difference between victory and the hospital. The two time Olympic silver medalist and five time US Open champion’s mid wide twin C2 BTX with new Liquid Crystal Polymer is a high-tech smooth riding banana that will take you where ever you want to go. Camber at each end for pop and stability on landings, banana between your feet for float in powder and incredible edge-hold and carving control on hard pack and ice. Danny just wrapped up season five of Danny and the Dingo and will be floating over a mountain near you on his magic carpet.

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.
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!
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.
4 way fiber orientation 0/45/45/90. Triaxial and biaxial glass combo for max pop and control.
