Key Features

C2 Rocker/Camber Profile - Combining central rocker for edge hold and float, with powerful camber towards the tip and tail for stability, pop, and control. Mervin's intricately balanced C2 profile is tuned to the exact specification of Travis Rice for all-terrain destruction.

Control / Precision / Float

Magne-Traction Serrated Edges - Strategically placed bumps that create added contact points along each edge for increased grip and control in all conditions.

Core

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.

Laminates

Tri-Ax/Bi-Ax - Fiberglass lay-up blend that provides a strong and responsive ride that is poppy and lively underfoot.

Topsheet

Eco-Sub Poly Topsheet - This Polyester topsheet is tough, sheds snow and adds traction.

Base

Eco Sublimated Sintered Base - Fast, tough, and holds wax so your days in the park or out in a more urban environment stay lit from the first trick to the last. Less time adding wax or doing repairs means more time snowboarding, and that's all anyone really wants, right?

Warranty

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.

About Gnu

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.
