Between her countless medals in snowboarding's top tier contests, and a growing portfolio of terrain park prowess, Jamie Anderson is in constant pursuit of living the dream. Jamie finds the dream wherever she is at the moment. Taking on new frontiers, her new short-wide Free Spirit keeps speed and wanders with hard carving capacity. Her Camber 3 Free Spirit guides fun, and freeride performance with precision wherever it takes you.
If you're always on the hunt for untouched pow fields and deep carving turns, then this is your board.
Directional is the classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition. A tapered shape means the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow flotation. The greater amount of volume in front of you will allow for effortless turning in deep or soft snow and increase the float of your board tremendously. 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 C3 performance hybrid 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.
A medium-stiff flex will ensure precise response and a lively feel.
The sintered base is 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. The core consists of Aspen/Columbian and Paulownia Alloy woods, this makes the core lightweight, sustainable, strong and poppy. The Silky Smooth Bio Fibers are lighter than ﬁberglass. This renewable organic ﬁber has inherent vibration dampening properties and improved elasticity compared to other ﬁbers commonly used in snowboards. The Ultra High Molecular Weight exterior sidewalls made from soy-based elastomer are laminated to five internal wood layers for totally bombproof sidewalls. Finally, the Eco Sublimated Bio Beans Topsheet features a tough and eco-sublimated layer to complete the construction.
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.
