- About the Art
Designed by Pendleton. The Pendleton collaboration was born from a love of the Northwest. Pendleton and Mervin share a commitment to craftsmanship and making our products in our own factories in the USA. Pendleton's colorful Day of the Dead woven blanket inspired this B-Pro graphic. More than 3,000 years ago indigenous peoples of Mexico celebrated a ritual honoring their dead ancestors. Today, it is celebrated on Nov. 1st, All Saints Day, with festivities honoring the dead. The festive skulls, musicians and marigolds capture the spirit of the celebration. With this board we can take every opportunity to celebrate life and death throughout the winter, and warm up with a cozy blanket at the end of every day!
Handbuilt in the USA
Every Gnu is handmade by snowboarders with jobs in the USA.
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.
