The Velvet is the choice of Gnu team riders who approach the whole mountain like their park. It’s snappy flex and hybrid C2 contour work in synergy for pop and stability. It features intuitive asym geometry, and Magne-Traction®, so it is catch-free and responsive. The eco sublimated plant-based graphics give this ride a down to earth vibe. The Velvet is comfortable in any conditions and as balanced in the park as it is in banked slaloms or street sessions. Design conceptualized by Naima Antolin and designed by Hannah Eddy.

Best board I ever had

Originally posted at www.gnu.com on Apr 15, 2023
I have the 2021 model which is absolutely sick and the texture of the topsheet is amazing! The asymmetrical edges were a game changer for me in the beginning and made my riding style go up a notch or two. Goes amazingly stable on any icey slope as in park or banked slaloms. I'm definitely looking into buying next year's model and go a size up.

Amazing board

Originally posted at www.gnu.com on Feb 19, 2023
Long time gnu fanboy here. Got my wife this board and she is super hyped on it. She is an intermediate rider who is focusing more on the park lately. This thing has already seemed to given her a ton of confidence and is really helping her continue progressing. Rips groomers and blows through choppy shit. She hasn’t got out on a pow day with it, but I assume it will handle like any other true twin with c2 . Also, the texture top sheet is and ass, would love to see variations of it one more boards in the line up.

Great recommendations, super fast response

I casually inquired about skis with Nate after getting tired of my rentals. Within 10 minutes, he had found me a pair with bindings that would beat the cost of renting in less than 2 years. Nate had all the answers to my questions about "Why this ski and not that ski?" and made me feel super confident in my purchase.

Matthew had helped me made this purchase very easy. He's so knowledgeable and listens to what you need. I was pushing back-and-forth and buying my first gear to snowboard, but then Matthew has always been an expert paired to me and he never stopped replying. Been in contact with him for a few months and today. I finally committed on buying my first gear. Been reaching out with Matthew. Maybe this is my fourth time and he always reply nicely And made me feel comfortable whenever I ask questions truly and highly recommended. If you need an expert to help you buy your snowboard gears.

I've been wanting to buy ski gear for a while now, but honestly didn't have the time or mental capacity to do all the research it takes to really know what gear to buy. My upcoming move to Colorado really made get serious about buying. It was extra convenient that Sara lives in Colorado and is familiar with the conditions I'll be skiing in and what gear will be best. She listened to the questions and concerns I had about gear and measurements and made me feel confident in my purchase! Thanks a ton!
