With a soft flex and an easygoing shape, this deck will provide catch-free and predictable riding across the entire mountain. It has rocker between the feet and flat to mild camber at contact points. This means it'll be noodly when you desire but rigid when you need it.

Another camber/rocker/camber build. This board is a bit softer than the Velvet and is an ultimate freestyle machine making it extra forgiving while you're still getting comfortable.

The Gnu Antigravity is a super playful, surfy machine due to its mostly camber profile and mid-soft flex. The Gnu edge tech gives it solid connection on hard snow, and the tapered shape from nose to tail provides an extra lift in the nose to really cruise across powder. This is a fantastic board if you're wanting something playful and mellow to cover the whole mountain. It's ideal for riders looking for an all-mountain freestyle board that doesn't feel overly aggressive. Its softer flex and tapered nose make it an ideal board for those wanting a surfy feel.

Great all around board that was built to tear up the mountain in any conditions!

This is a great board that will be fun wherever you take it!

C3 camber is the most aggressive camber profile from Gnu. Medium to stiff flex (6-8/10) board with mellow reverse camber between the feet to allow for some pivot action and help in the powder. Aggressive camber underfoot to ends will make this board a more solid ride and be more responsive when turning as the ends still touch the ground like a standard camber board. Signature asymmetric shape because our bodies are asym. True twin so you can ride switch no prob and it will feel the same. Magne-traction for added grip on uneven terrain.

ANYTHING FREESTYLE:) , charging groomers, uneven terrain, and executing highspeed carves! This is a high-end park board that is very stable at high speeds and is geared for hitting bigger size jumps and carving up icy pipe walls. This board features traditional camber all the way through from tip to tail and is a true twin. This allows for explosive pop on those high ollies and a very consistent snap when exiting a carve switch or regular. It has a medium flex, so it will still press on rails and butter when you need it too! The asymmetrical sidecut allows for deeper heel side carves with less effort and evens out the playing field on toe vs. heal edge response. The magnatraction is revolutionary at maintaining an edge on ice and will still work even if you like to detune your edges!
