GNU B-Pro Splits
The B- Pro Split has changed the way I experience the amazing back country terrain where I live. It’s faster, lighter weight, and smoother than my old set up. It is quick and easy to change from splitting to snowboarding and accessing the “top of the world” is now so much more fun!

Tell me a story about a day on your board
I remember the first day that I rode the Ladies Choice 148.5 last season. It was a warm, sunny, spring feeling day in January in Mammoth! They had just finished building the bigger double jump line. I was riding with my husband and a group of guy friends. My board felt amazing under my feet. The C2 Pickle combo on this board made every turn, ollie, and trick feel effortless. The base felt smooth and fast. Even after most of the guys I was riding with said the snow was too slow to continue hitting the double line, my board had no problem holding speed and control in the mushy slush until the very end of the day! I was hitting the big slushy jumps switch and all the guys were shocked that I could still clear the jumps at all. They said it must be the board and I agreed. I think they were all jealous of my Ladies Choice!
