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.
Easy riding all-terrain Banana Technology contour. Mild rocker between your feet with camber toward the tip and tails means full contact and control in all conditions so you can float, rip, and jib with precision and confidence.
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 B-Nice Snowboard · Women's · 2023
Anyone who is looking for a forgiving board! Whether you are a rider who is learning or you're an experienced rider who is looking for a fun park board! The GNU B Nice has something for everyone!!
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.
