Gnu was kidnapped by crooked distributors and lawyers in the late 80’s and was returned one year later. The Unreal Series features some of the favorite boards of the Gnu team from the second coming. The twin freestyle shape was designed for pure progression, from park jumps to all-mountain shredding at the whole resort. These high-performance freestyle sticks feature the latest in technological advancements: Magne-Traction serrated edge grip technology and C2 Banana Technology that float, carve and jib effortlessly.
All-Mountain Freestyle - You want to have fun on the whole mountain? This board does everything with ease, from kickers and rails in the park to side hits on the piste or powder runs and fast turns.
The perfectly symmetrical True Twin shape offers a balanced ride that’s equally versatile when ridden regular or switch. 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.
C2 means Rocker between your feet combined with radial cambers out to the contact points on tip and tail. Precise perfection in turning, jibbing and unreal float in pow combined with a tip to tail control, power, and pop of camber.
The medium flex makes this board suited for everything. Rip pow, press your way through jobs, spin your body in weird ways and carve up everything from slush to ice.
The Co-Extruded Base is hard, fast and virtually maintenance free. A Gnu sublimation system exclusive oddity, that loves a good wax but still slides great even when you forget to. The core consists of Aspen/Columbian and Gold Alloy woods, this makes the core lightweight, sustainable, strong and poppy. Bi-ax and Tri-ax fiberglass surrounds the Woodcore and adds the needed stiffness and durability. 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 Poly 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.
