No matter what terrain Jamie Anderson is riding, it seems she has done nothing else her whole life. In powder, she rides the Free Sprit: Short, wide and with lots of volume, fun on powder days is guaranteed.
The Free Spirit is Jamie Anderson's freeride board. It is a short, agile freeride board for intermediate and advanced riders to ride everything from big mountain lines to tree runs.
The C3 performance camber profile features a mild rocker between the feet while the rest of the board is profiled like a standard camber. This profile offers an aggressive ride that provides a lot of control and response in every terrain. The mild rocker will give the board just a little bit more playfulness and float than standard camber profiles, while not compromising the positive properties of camber. Some benefits for the advanced riders are precise edge control, maximum stability for high jumps and landings and fast lines.
The Free Sprit has a tapered directional shape. The narrower tail will make turning in powder easier, while the wider nose and setback keeps you afloat through the deepest and steepest. Take advantage of the Magne-Traction® edges to effortlessly link turns that look and feel nice whether they are at high speeds or slow and controlled. The Magne-Traction® serrated edges give great edge hold all over the mountain, especially on hard pack and ice. They turn ice into powder.
The stiff flex of the Free Spirit provides full control and absolute precision.
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 Unreal G3 Construction. The Core is made with Balsa, Aspen and Paulownia which is balanced lighter, sustainable, FCS certified, strong & poppy. The tri-ax and bi-ax Bio Fiber Dampener 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 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.
