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.
Easy / Jibby / Floaty
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.
Tri-Ax/Bi-Ax - Fiberglass lay-up blend that provides a strong and responsive ride that is poppy and lively underfoot.
Eco-Sub Poly Topsheet - This Polyester topsheet is tough, sheds snow and adds traction.
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.
