The classic Banana Rocker profile featured is perfect for beginners-to-intermediate riders because it's fun, floaty and easy to initiate turns on. The asymmetrical shape can be felt as you turn into your heelside edge, with a tighter sidecut radius that gives you better edge hold. To increase this effect the board actually features lighter core materials on this side as well, which changes the way the board flexes. If you're looking for a softer, more forgiving all-mountain board that kills it in the park, this award-winning twin is the one you want.

Original Banana Rocker Profile - Blending rocker between your feet for edge hold and float, with mild camber toward the tip and tail for pop, stability, and control. Mervin's revolutionary all-terrain Original Banana blend is built for all conditions and terrain.
Asym Sidecut: Balance Through Asymmetry - Asymmetric Sidecuts and construction balance the different turning mechanics required for heel-side and toe-side turns. Your body is asymmetric, which means your snowboard should also be asymmetric. Ride better and have more fun through asymmetry!
Asym Level 1 - A deeper sidecut on the heelside and an asymmetric wood core with softer flexing wood on the heelside for precision/control on your toeside edge with added power on your heelside edge.
Magne-Traction Serrated Edges - Strategically placed bumps that create added contact points along each edge for increased grip and control in all conditions.
Aspen/Paulownia Core - Gnu builds boards with fast growing farmed eco woods selected specifically for their long fibers, light weight, strength, long lasting pop and great feel. This particular board uses the following woods:
Aspen: Light, strong and lively long fibers.
Paulownia: Light, strong and poppy.
UHMW External Sidewalls - Ultra High Molecular Weight exterior sidewalls made from soy-based elastomer are laminated to five internal wood layers for totally bombproof sidewalls. Fast, rugged, hard, waterproof.
Bi-Axial Glass - 2-way fiber orientation. Engineered to make the difficult easy.
Tri-Axial Glass - 3-way fiber orientation. Engineered to make the difficult even easier.
Eco-Sub PBT Top Sheet - Sounds technical right? It just means the top sheet is made from sublimated polyester material that's great for vibrant yet durable graphics, which means a long lasting image. When the graphics are as good as Gnu's you'll be glad you have it.
Eco Sublimated Co-Ex Base - Perfect for beginners and park riders, this base keeps you moving fast and is easy to repair. All those dings your board gets over the season are like battle scars, but they also slow you down so repair your board to help your setup feel like it's new again, and again, and again.
1 Year Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for 1 year from the time of purchase. Warranty includes structural defects only and DOES NOT cover impact damage, abuse, misuse or normal wear and tear expected from aggressive riding.
Handbuilt in the USA - Every Gnu snowboard is handmade by snowboarders with jobs in the USA.
Mervin Made: EcoUNREAL Manufacturing - Core materials are sources from fast-growing, renewable forest products. Water-based solvents used for cleansing instead of petrochemical-based solvents. All wood sawdust is recycled as a soil additive, plus scrap wood is donated to a local Mood Wood company that packages it as kindling and resells it.
