Gnu is releasing the throwback Unreal Series this season with the classic big "G" reissue graphic from the 90's. Unlike the originals, these lightweight and up-to-date descendants feature a few modern touch-ups like the C2E Profile and Magne-Traction edges for carving up the park and serving it to your friends on a silver platter. The super poppy, sustainable wood core and fiberglass laminates help boost your ollies while keeping the weight down while the Eco Sublimated Poly Topsheet and graphic process produce zero hazardous waste to reduce the impact on the environment. With dependable construction like the tough UHMW sidewalls and fast, durable Co-Ex Base, there's far less worry about how your board will hold up so you can focus on wowing your buddies with crazy tricks. Slash through the trees and speed down the groomers, this wicked board series will put a smile on your face going down any run. Grab one of these gems this season for some unreal shredding.
C2E Banana Rocker/Elliptical Camber Profile - This is Mervin's top of the line freestyle blend that performs halfway between original Banana Tech and C3. The E stands for easy street. Rocker between your feet blended with elliptical camber to contact points. Focuses pressure between your feet for easy turns, great edge hold on ice and a medium amount of pressure to the tip and tail. This provides end-to-end stability and pop while maintaining great float and catch-free freestyle.
Magne-Traction Serrated Edges - Replaces the “two contact point” ski theory that conventional skis and snowboards have. Gnu's Magne-Traction boards have seven! Seven is more than two. With Magne-Traction, when your two outside contact points lose grip, you’ve still got five more to take over, which means you won’t fall as much. Control and turn initiation comes from under your feet, not a foot and a half to either side of your feet. Better edge hold. Climbs icy pipes! Turns ice into powder and rides like a skateboard!
G1 Aspen/Columbian Gold 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.
Columbian Gold: Fast growing farmed wood from south of the border. Ultra light, strong, long lively fibers.
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 Verzure Poly Topsheet - This Polyester topsheet is tough, sheds snow and adds traction.
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.
Sorry folks, but bashing your board on a rock or rail does not qualify as a "manufacturer's defect" and will not be honored.
