GNU Money Snowboard · 2023
Budget conscious riders that want a ton of great tech packed into a price friendly option. GNU's accountants got mad at the board builders for letting this board out of the factory at such a low price. Magne-Traction edges, C2 rocker camber hybrid, sustainable wood core, and eco-sublimated graphics make the Money strong and poppy with precision control. True twin shape is at home in the park and rips everything you can find at the resort. Intermediate to advanced riders looking for a freestyle focused board that performs well anywhere you take it on the mountain.
It has full rocker and a mellow flex for easy turn initiation and forgiveness. It will carve nicely because of its asymmetrical edges and magne-traction. It will hold an edge in icy conditions and be easy to ride anywhere. Camber underfoot for added response and pop.
C2 Rocker Camber hybrid profile is where it's at! This board gives you that and then some. With a freestyle-oriented profile, this board is fun and easy to ride and you will enjoy progressing on it easily!!!
GNU Essential Service Snowboard · 2023
Versatile all-mountain performer in the Mervin lineup. Features a C2 hybrid profile so you get the perfect balance of mild rocker between the bindings and camber zones underfoot. Medium flex gives you control riding steeps to laps in the park. This one features a sintered base for speeed and of course, magne-traction for added stability on uneven terrain and ice. Great all rounder!
Friendly enough to handle easily across groomers and mellower terrain. It floats well in the powder, rides loose and nimble in the park, and easily steps up or down to whatever level of aggression you're bringing to the day. Rocker between your feet with powerful cambers to the tips and tails give this board a nice surfy feel with loads of pop and stability.
The perfect board for a high-level snowboarder who wants one board to conquer the whole mountain. Rocker underfoot with camber at the tip and tail, this board provides the rider with a slow transition into camber riding while also being a board that provides great pop and power. Can handle alot of fresh snow and basically anything else on the mountain.
GNU Head Space Snowboard · 2023
A freestyle board built for the park rat and ride looking for every side hit and bump around the resort. True twin with an asym side cut enhancing heel side edge turns and stability. Camber dominant with the C3 camber, is fast, aggressive, and a touch of rocker in the middle to add a playful feel when needed. Magnatraction for added edge hold in the ice.
GNU Airblaster Gremlin Collab Snowboard · 2023
Any advanced rider looking for a all-mountain, any condition, powder slaying, hard charger of a board. Mervin's C3 camber profile delivers a ton of pop, and stability, along with that "camber feel" while still being able to turn in super tight spaces on a dime. Magne-Traction edges will keep you carving on ice, and this beautiful shape will float in the deepest fresh snow. Bomb steeps, get nipple deep in powder, carve up groomers, weave through trees, pop off of everything around, or just cruise the resort. This board loves it all!
Mid to stiff flexing board on a limited edition collaboration. This powder quiver will find it's home in some untouched snow at the resort or hiking around the back country. Ideal for an intermediate to advanced rider who wants a playful yet responsive snowboard. Magne-Traction will keep your edges gripping on the worst terrain while mild rocker in the center of this board and camber under foot will leave you smiling with joy while playing in the powder!
Medium-stiff flex, C3 camber and Magne-Traction make this volume shift option an absolute ripper all over the mountain. Whether you're chasing powder stashes, ripping trenches in the groomers, or blasting off side hits, this thing will scream for more.
