Humans are asymmetric from front to back. Turn mechanics are vastly different from toe side to heel side. The Weird Science Team at Gnu have incorporated 5 unique balancing design concepts that harmonize and harness our natural biomechanics and built them into the revolutionary award winning Impossible.

Points of Pickle

  • Deeper Heel Side Sidecut
  • Asymmetric “Pickle Barrel” Core Softer Heel Side Flex
  • Asymmetric Contact Angles Shorter Heel Side Edge Contact
  • Asymmetric Tip and Tail Shapes
  • Smart Formula Asymmetric Magne-Traction

We have combined this pinnacle of asymmetric design (SMART A.S.S. TECHNOLOGY) with EC2 Banana camber contours, and incredible material technology including; ultra light and strong Magnesium fibers and Bio Beans top material. Naturally easy to ride. Incredibly high performance. Perfect for duck freestyle stances. Nothing is impossible!

    Construction Icon

    Every Gnu snowboard is handbuilt in the U.S.A by weirdos with jobs. Keep riding snowboards built by snowboarders.

  • A.S.S. Tech

    Asymmetric Symmetric Synchronization, uses asymmetry in the boards sidecut, wood core components, contact angles and tip and tail design to make riding a whole lot easier.

  • Asym Core: 3

    Pickle Barrel Blend. Great Lakes Aspen, Rocky Mountain Aspen and Columbian Gold adds Polonia (extremely renewable, ultra-lightweight wood) to the heel side edge for a softer heel side flex.

  • UHMW Sidewalls

    Ultra High Molecular Weight exterior sidewalls made from soy-based elastomer are laminated to five internal wood layers for totally bombproof sidewalls.

  • Magnesium Fiberglass

    Magnesium Fiberglass Technology is impossibly light, incredibly strong, tastes bitter, is explosively flammable and built into every Impossible.

  • 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.

  • Sintered Base

    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.
