A hard-charging beast bred for the steeps.
Deep in the wild mountains of the Northwest is where the Gnu Billy Goat
C3-BTX Snowboard roams. This snarling all-mountain animal foams at the mouth when it spots steep terrain populated with pillow lines, chutes, and
cliffs. Ridden to victory four times at the Mt. Baker Banked Slalom by legendary rider Temple Cummins, the Billy
Goat traverses and steers its way across unpredictable snow with unwavering
control and precision.
The C3 Banana profile features aggressive camber zones outside the bindings for powerful turns and poppy ollies, while mild rocker between your feet adds a forgiving feel and enhances float in powder. This year Gnu decided to tone down the Magne-Traction to give it a less grabby feel without sacrificing traction. A directional twin shape and slightly set-back stance give you greater control when you're pointing it without compromising your ability to ride switch.
Anvitex dampening absorbs vibrations and reduces chatter for a smooth ride, and a fast sintered base keeps you moving through slow spots. You can also ride a little easier knowing that the lightweight and strong aspen wood core comes from sustainably harvested trees in the Great Lakes region so you're not destroying the very places you love to ride.
