The Ladies Choice is a reflection of Jamie Anderson’s positive self, supporting all efforts she makes to push the progression of snowboarding. Whether it be podium-topping, jaw-dropping manoeuvres in the park, hard ripping in the resort or taking on new frontiers in the backcountry, Jamie’s award-winning dream board will always be there for you. Hand-built in the USA at the World’s Most Environmental Board Factory, the Ladies Choice is produced with quality craftsmanship and a conscience in line with Jamie’s unreal Eco-ethos at Mervin MFG. Zero Hazardous Waste.
For intermediate and advanced riders who want a confident, inspiring freestyle board that allows them to perform at the highest level.
The Ladies Choice is built with Banana Technology C2x. C2x means rocker between your feet combined with camber out to tip and tail. Kills everything! Aggressive perfection in turning, jibbing and unreal float in pow combined with a tip to tail control, power, and pop of camber.
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 Ladies Choice is built with Level 2 Asym: asymmetric wood core, which means softer flexing on the heelside, asymmetric sidecut, which means deeper sidecut on the heelside, and asymmetric contact angles and length, for a shorter heelside contact.
This board also features Magne-Traction® Serrated Edges that deliver unreal edge hold and turn 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 medium flex of the Ladies Choice is perfect for all aspects of freestyle riding, supportive and responsive enough for taking big kickers and forgiving and flexible enough for jibbing around.
On Mt Weird, GNU continually tests new nature and science applications to improve their board design. Eco-unreal construction incorporates these successful applications, to create snowboards which are environmentally minded, stronger, lighter and longer lasting. The Ladies Choice is built with Asym Unreal G3 Construction. The Core is made with Balsa, Aspen and Paulownia which is balanced lighter, sustainable, FCS certified, strong & poppy. The Tri-ax/Bi-Ax/Silky Smooth Bio Fibre Dampening Fibreglass is smooth, durable, light and poppy. The Top sheet of the Ladies Choice is made from Eco Sublimated Bio Beans - smooth and environmentally friendly! The Sintered Knife Cut Base is tough, fast and holds wax well, while the recycled UHMW Sidewalls are environmentally friendly.
Gnu have been around since the birth of snowboarding, claiming weird, open minded experimentation to be their job. They have worked with mysterious materials, bizarre geometries, contours and board shapes, far out art and colors, odd terrain and freakish riders to create fantastic progressive snowboards that have helped take snowboarding to wild and magical places. A brand we are happy to call one of the family.
