GNU Danny Kass XC2-BTX Review

GNU Danny Kass XC2-BTX Review

The GNU Danny Kass is a freestyle board that is made to ride everything from backcountry jumps in powder to laps through the park.

It has the XC2-BTX profile, which has rocker in between the feet, and camber out to the contact points. The rocker helps the float in powder, while the camber sections give the pop, edge hold and power you need through turns.

It is a directional twin shape, which also is set back half an inch, so the slightly longer nose is going to give more float in powder. The nose and the tail have the same shape, so riding and landing switch is not going to be a problem.

It has 0.5 magnetraction edges, which is a less aggressive version of the original magnetraction. It will still give you the extra grip on icy and hard packed snow compared to normal edges.

Sizes available:

  • 151cm
  • 153cm
  • 156cm
  • 158cm

Depending on the size you get, the flex rating of the board varies between a 5 and a 7.

The 151cm has a flex rating of 5, the 153cm is a 6, the 156cm is a 6.5 and the 158 is a 7 out of 10.
