GNU Snowboards 2010-2011

19 May, 2010

Under the Mervin Manufacturing umbrella, GNU Snowboards are handbuilt in the US by snowboarders and ride the parks, pipes and pow by snowboarders.  GNU continues to bring environmental practices to their snowboards with their bioplastic topsheets, sustainable woodcores, on-site recycling and 100% vegan.

For 10-11, C2BTX is added to two new boards in the line up with the Altered Genetics and Riders Choice and the Danny Kass and Billy Goat continue to offer it.  For women, you can find C2BTX in the B-pro.  New for men is the dirty pillow BTX, a twin pow terrain banana for fun float in the pow.  New for women is the women’s park pickle designed to give women a asym ride down the mountain.

I came home with a couple shots of GNU at SIA, but in the tightly cramped space I didn’t get every board so here’s the catalog images for each board and specs.  Remember these might be changing by the time they hit production.

    Deffinatly don’t like the graphics compared to last year… glad I got the Park Pickle when it looked like a pickle (that’s a major part of the appeal)

    Finally, a GNU Park Pickle for chicks! And a good one that actually fits me! (besides the B-Street) This coming winter is going to be my third year and I already sold one board, and I’m gonna be selling my current one. Why? Because I’m freakin’ short and it’s so hard finding good affordable boards that are my size (between 140 to 144) I’m about 5 foot…5 foot 1… but way over the weight I should be for my height (it’s gonna be a summer of health!) My last board was a 148. It fit my weight, sure, but not my height. It was almost as tall as me O_O twas hard to control! Then I went to the Ski/Snowboard show here in Toronto and what was my size was either way over what I had in my wallet or something crappy and cheap so for some reason I decided on a junior board which uh…I realized is too small. Don’t feel too safe, lol. But this year ooooh I’m saving my monies! I’m making sure I can get something I can finally enjoy and feel super confident about riding with. Hazza for Park Pickle! And now I can be nerdy and match my bf, but it’s just a coincidence they’re awesome freakin boards. My only dilemma is… 140 or 144?! Such a crazy jump. I’m gonna try to get a job over in Whistler for the season and I haven’t done park yet so I’ll be riding mostly the mountain, so maybe a 144? Hmm.
    But out of all of this my main curiosity is…the price. Been trying to look it up but no success. I noticed you got back to somebody on a MSRP so I’m wondering if by any chance you know the MSRP for this one? Just so I know how much I need to stuff into a “piggy bank” that I can only access through smashing XD

    Does anyone know where I could get last season’s Bstreet BTX with the Audrey Hepburn graphic? It’s more elusive than the Yeti!
