GNU 2014 Eco Genetics Snowboard :
The world's most environmentally friendly construction plus a slew of GNU's signature tech can be found in the GNU ECO Genetics C2BTX Snowboard. Made with Banana Tech, Magne-Traction and LCP Liquid Crystal Polymer, this board rips like a hungry tree-hugging grizzly bear just out of hibernation in the middle of a petroleum accounting convention. Highlighting GNU's eco-friendly ways, Adam Haynes' graphics express his interpretation of the GNU factory.
Profile: Rocker Camber Rocker
Rocker between your feet combined with radial cambers out to the contact. Aggressive riders enjoy unreal tip and tail control, power and pop combined with the float, freestyle freedom and carving of rocker between the feet.
Outline: Directional Twin
With a similar nose and tail, these boards can charge hard and ride great in powder while still having plenty of play and control when riding switch.
Construction: Aspen, Eco Woods
Core AP2 - Aspen Paulownia laminate
Sustainable Natural Fiber - GNU builds boards with fast growing farmed eco woods selected specifically for their long fibers, light weight, strength, long lasting pop and great feel. Wood is Nature's fiberglass.
Laminates: Polymer Fibers
LCP Liquid Crystal Polymer Fibers:
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.
Turns ice into powder! Serrated edges create 7 points of contact to give great edge hold all over the mountain, especially on hard pack and ice!
Top Sheet: Bio Bean
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.
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.
Warranty: One Year
One year warranty against manufacturer defects.
