As well-rounded as Mr. Dank Ass himself.
Danny Kass likes to ride pretty much anything, and so does his pro-model C2BTX Gnu snowboard. With a snappy flex, twin shape and hybrid-camber C2 profile, this deck is a great ride for experienced shredders who are just as likely to spend the day lapping the jump line or a sidecountry stash.
- C2 hybrid-camber shape uses rocker between the feet and camber zones in the tip and tail for a grippy, powerful ride that's still floaty and fun
- Liquid Crystal Polymer dampens vibration for a smoother ride, without unnecessary weight gain
- Twin shape for equal radness both regular and switch
- Magne-Traction serrated edges add contact points to improve edge hold in firm snow
- AG2 wood core is sustainably farmed in the Pacific Northwest
- Sintered base absorbs plenty of wax to improve speed and durability

One of the best snowboards I have been on. This is currently my one board quiver. The sidecut allows this board to carve really well. The flex is stiff enough for jumps and still playful on jibs. The waist width is perfect for my 11.5 boots.
I have the 2010 model and it has been the 1 board in my quiver that I know I can count on for everything from crust to hardpack to fresh. When heading into unknown or variable conditions the C2 BTX with mag is the way to go. I'm 150 lbs, ride a 155 and I'd say the 6.5 stiffness rating is right on target.
Pros: Super stable Ride: Charge a line, pop on, over and off shit, hit kickers and drops, and generally go hard is what this board like to do. Magna really helps on crusty midwest days. Also helps on crusty Jackson Hole days, and crusty undies days. The C2 really helps the float in all sorts of conditions but maintains most of the camber stiffness for charging, ollies, and stability.
Cons: I've bought several new boards but I keep coming back to this one. I can't find a reason to retire it and that's the worst thing I can say about it. (Closest I've come to switching is the Yes 'Greats' board which is more lively)
Considerations: If you're looking for a butters/jibs only board there are softer more playful boards for that stuff. It's also not the most 'lively' board if you're not putting in effort, but its stability makes up for that for me.
Conclusion: The first day I rode my board I noticed a topsheet bubble, but in 2 seasons it's never got bigger or caused any issues. The base has held up amazingly; I've had to do some repairs but never had a core shot (I generally get a few). Could've sized down on this board and still been good. I've made the (GNU/LIB/ROXY) C2 BTX recommendation to several people looking for a 1 board quiver and they've all been very happy with its versatility.
