The Gnu Women's Velvet Gnuru EC2 BTX Snowboard offers a fun focused path to all mountain enlightenment. With its forgiving flex, versatile profile, and velvety smooth ride, this board is here to guide everyone from beginners to masters along their spiritual shred journeys. The EC2 BTX Banana profile features a boundary transcending blend of rocker between the bindings and elliptical camber outside the bindings to make initiating turns easier and prevent catching edges, because less falling definitely equals more fun for everyone. Like original Magne Traction, Mini Magne Traction creates several extra contact points along the edge for extra edge hold on icy slopes but is mellower for a less grabby feel. A blend of aspen and golden poplar keeps the Velvet Gnuru lightweight, yet strong, and offers a crisp, poppy feel. UHMW sidewalls ensure durability, and the sintered base is fast and retains wax well to keep you moving through flat spots with ease. Perhaps best of all, this board was made in the USA by snowboarders with jobs so you can feel good knowing your purchase is better for the environment and the economy.
