A versatile ride for big-footed rippers.
Just because you have big feet doesn't mean you're stuck riding some big mountain plank. The Gnu Riders Choice C2-PBTX Wide Snowboard was built for big-footed riders who like to rip everything form powder to park. Although it has freestyle in its DNA, the Rider's Choice is also a natural when it comes to powder, pipe, and pillows. Basically, it'll rip whatever the hell you point it at.
It features a deeper heelside sidecut and an asym flex to make your heelside turns as powerful and natural feeling as your toeside turns. The PBTX Enhanced Banana profile features a magical blend of rocker between the bindings and elliptical camber outside the bindings for incredible float in powder, catch-free buttering on hardpack, and response and stability at high speeds. Magne-Traction edges are serrated to slice through ice likes it's fresh corduroy, so you can lay down high-speed carves and stomp tricks on icy landings while everyone else is washing out left and right.
A blend of four different types of wood gives the core the perfect balance between lightweight and strong, and they keep it feeling nice and poppy too. UHMW sidewalls ensure durability, and the sintered base is fast and retains wax well to keep you moving through flat spots with ease.

Performs exactly as described
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Took her on a cirque run and through the park on the first day with her. Great pop off side hits and kicks, as well as good flex, but not too soft, and floats like a champ through the powder. Couldn't ask for a better board.
p.s. the Magne-Traction is fantastic. First time with it and what used to be sketchy faces is no big deal.
Totally worth it. Get one.
