Size chart for Gnu - Men Freestyle Snowboards

4 - by Forest Bailey

The 4 is the new member of the Gnu family. The 4 is Forest Bailey's "freeride ready freestyler" ready to score any terrain. The aggressive C3 profile and the geometry that rips everything, makes the entire mountain your playground.
 
Riding style
The 4 is made for intermediate and advanced riders to push creativity and pleasure in all conditions on all terrain!

Profile
The C3 is Gnu’s camber profile that 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.

Shape
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.
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.

Flex
The medium-hard flex gives the board a balanced feel. It’s hard enough to stay in control on hard charged mountain lines or bigger kickers, but still, has enough flex for advanced powder buttering.

Construction
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 4 is built with Unreal G2 Construction. The Core is made with Aspen and Paulownia to create a light, sustainable, FCS certified core that is strong and poppy. The Tri-ax and Bi-Ax Fiberglas are strong and poppy. The topsheet of the 4 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.

About Gnu

Gnu have been around since the birth of snowboarding, claiming weird, open minded experimentation to be their job.
