GNU - RIDERS CHOICE - SNOWBOARDS - MENS - 2018 - 154.5CM

The 2018 Gnu Riders Choice is the go-to snowboard and all-conditions secret weapon of Choice for Gnu team Riders (Duh). This board has proven itself time and time again at the highest level of freestyle and freeriding, with the Gnu team putting it through its paces in the backcountry, parks, and in competition settings all over the world. It really can perform anywhere thanks to the ideal blend of camber and rocker giving you pop and flex in the park and float in powder, and its asymmetric construction lets you lay down carves and get more power in your turns with minimal effort. The Riders Choice is the most versatile board in the Gnu lineup, make it your choice and you're ready for anything.

Board Type: All terrain everything

Camber Type: C2

Mild rocker between your feet with powerful camber to the tip and tail gives you power and pop on groomers and in the park along with float and freedom to charge through powder. Carves the resort, plays in the park, and slays powder.

Flex: 6/10 (1=soft, 10=stiff)

Shape: Asym Twin

Identical tip to tail for controlled riding in regular or switch, with an asymmetric construction from toe to heel. Our bodies aren't the same front to back, so why should our boards be? Asymmetrical boards are built with a shorter sidecut on the heel edge and a different core construction from toe to heel, resulting in more precise carves on your toes, and easier and more powerful turns on your heels. This board is a level 2 on the asym scale, featuring an asymmetrical sidecut, core, and contact points.

Core: Asym Unreal G3

The lightest, environmentally nicest, and smoothest core from Gnu. Combines Aspen, Columbian Gold and Paulownia with Triax and Biax alloy glass for a super smooth ride and lighter weight.

Base: Sintered Knife Cut

Strong, fast and holds wax well. Glide over flat spots and wet spring snow with less drag and more speed.

Additional Features:

  • Bio Beans Topsheet - A bio-plastic made from beans. Good for your board, and good for the environment.
  • Magnetraction - 7 strategically placed serrations along the edges of the board grip onto the snow and hold a strong edge in any condition.  
  • Recycled UHMW Sidewalls - Environmentally friendly sidewall construction thats tough and fast.
