Eco-conscious construction, all-mountain dominance, and just enough weirdness.
A remarkable commitment towards environmentally friendly manufacturing meets all-terrain supremacy in the Gnu ECO Genetics C2-BTX Snowboard. The ECO Genetics has not only carved a name out for itself in the backcountry as an aggressive freeride board, but also for setting an industry benchmark for being nice to the environment.
The C2 Banana profile features a magical blend of rocker between the bindings and more aggressive camber outside the bindings for incredible float in powder, catch-free buttering on hardpack, and reliable response and stability at high speeds. Magne-Traction edges are serrated to slice through ice likes it's fresh corduroy, so you'll be carving down boilerplate with ease while everyone else is sliding out on their asses. A twin shape allows you to ride away from pow landings switch and dial in cab spins on the jump line in the park.
And the best part is you can feel better about your purchase knowing that the Bio Bean topsheet is made from castor beans instead of petroleum-based plastics, and the lightweight and strong aspen and palonia wood core comes from fast-growing, sustainably harvested trees so you're not contributing to the destruction of the rainforests.

Just received my 2014 Gnu Eco Genetics from Dogfunk and man does this thing look sweet! Now I just need to wait for some snow to test this bad boy out in.
