Living by the proverb that is its name, the B-Nice by Gnu uses a "can do" attitude to take on any terrain in front of it. With the friendly Original Banana contour, perfect for progress, the B-Nice lend itself to versatility and performance across the entire mountain. The intuitive Asym Technology improves performance and reduces rider's fatigue. This one is a good one... nice to the core and nice to the Earth from which it was harvested.
For Ladies that want a fun and easy twin freestyle board to learn their first freestyle moves or improve their tricks in a well-performing package.
The B-Nice comes with Original Banana - the best contour to learn on. It consists of rocker between your feet and mild camber outside your feet, giving you full contact and control in all conditions. The central rocker brings to life the middle of your board, adding float and edge hold while also improving carving and power. The mild camber out to the tip and tail builds in pop, stability, and control.
The human body is asymmetric. Turn mechanics on a tow and heel side turn are completely different. Gnu builds in asymmetric balancing concepts to each side of your snowboard harmonizing with nature and creating a more efficient, less tiring, unreal ride. The B-Nice is constructed with Level 1 Asym: asymmetric wood core, which means softer flexing on the heelside, and asymmetric sidecut, which means deeper sidecut on the heelside.
The B-Nice also features Magne-Traction®, that delivers unreal edge hold and turns ice into powder. The Serrated Steak Knife Technology consists of 7 strategically located and sized edge serrations that provide unreal edge hold and control in all conditions: entry serration, mild serration and deepest serrations between the feet.
The soft-medium flex of this board provides you with a playful feeling that inspires jibbing and freestyle moves on every possible obstacle while giving you the pop you need to get on top of everything and the stability you need for charging hard on groomers.
The Asym Unreal G1 Construction features Aspen/Asym Columbian Gold Alloy Core, which is balanced, light, sustainable, FSC certified, strong and poppy! The Tri-Ax / Bi-Ax Glassfibre is durable, light and poppy, while the Eco Sublimated Verzure Poly Topsheet is tough, sheds snow and adds traction. The Co-Extruded Base is fast and easy to maintain. The UHMW, the Ultra High Molecular Weight exterior sidewalls, are made from a soy-based elastomer and are tough and speedy.
