Pow to park, this board does it all.
Winner of last year's Transworld Good Wood award for all-mountain rides under $450, the Gnu Carbon Credit BTX Wide Snowboard is a one-board solution for powder days, slushy park laps, and everything in-between. This wide-waisted deck caters to those with feet size 11 and up, providing extra stability for big-footed riders.
Its versatile Banana rocker delivers catch-free freestyle fun all over the mountain, thanks to a rocker between your feet with mild camber extending out to the contacts. The rocker profile allows you to float through powder with a centered stance, also making for a loose, forgiving feel when you're buttering and jibbing through the park. Mild camber extending out to the contacts adds a touch of response for carving at high speeds without giving up its fun, playful feel. Combined with serrated Magne-Traction edges, you'll have plenty of grip for dicing through the iciest snow and steepest terrain.
Inside the workings of this all-mountain machine, you'll find a core that's composed of high-density Aspen and super-poppy Columbian Gold wood. Add in snappy carbon stringers and you have a deck that's ready to boost over jumps, natural features, and slow signs (don't get caught by ski patrol!). Ultra-tough UHMW sidewalls take all the abuse you can dish out, and a low-maintenance extruded base maintains its glide even without wax, making it perfect for beginners or those who want a low-maintenance shred stick.
