Features of the GNU Riders Choice 2017
- Twin Shape
The twin shape means that it is going to have the same feel whether you are riding it in the regular or switch direction.
The asymmetrical shape means that the heelside of the board has a tighter (smaller radius) sidecut. The idea is that the board will turn with less effort on your heelside compared to a normal board. Because of the way our feet work, it is easier to put weight over the toe edge of a snowboard, so the tighter heelside radius is made to balance that out, so you get a nice and easy feel to turning.
- C2 Camber Profile
The C2 BTX Profile has a rocker section that is between your feet, and then under your feet out towards the tip and tail of the board are camber sections. The camber sections help to keep the board stable, give it good pop while the rocker section helps with float in deeper snow.
The edges of the board are serrated, and have 7 separate points which help to cut into hardpacked snow and ice, so you have extra grip compared to boards with a regular sidecut/edges/
- Sintered Base
The sintered base is made of a hard and fast material, which is good at soaking up wax and keeping the board moving fast.
