GNU snowboards are handmade in the U.S.A and have been using science and technology since 1977 to deliver high quality snowboards for men and women . That’s almost 40 years of board building skills that have pushed the boundaries of new technology while using eco friendly, fast growing, renewable woods like Great Lakes Aspen, Rocky Mtn Aspen, Columbian Gold and Polonia. Gnu Believes in the wonders of what they call "Weird Science" and will continue exploring the physics and future of snowboarding.
One of the weirdest things that GNU offer is their A.S.S Pickle Technology. This can be found in
models. A.S.S. stands for Asymmetric, Symmetric, Synchronization. The scientists over at GNU realized that we’re riding symmetrical snowboards but when standing sideways, our bodies are asymmetrical. With this thought it in mind, they re-developed the heelside edge of the snowboard to have deeper sidecut, softer flex, asym. contact angles, and asym. tip and tail shapes providing a much more natural shape that matches the anatomy of your body. Turning a snowboard has never been so easy.
The weirdness doesn’t stop there. One of the most legendary features on a GNU snowboard is the serrated edge technology known as Magne-traction. This unique edge provides great hold on hardpack and ice. It practically turns ice into powder! You can find magnetraction in models like the
and the women’s
If you’re looking for a snowboard that combines fun with science make sure to check out GNU. Feel free to get weird and ride a pickle, a banana or an A.S.S shaped snowboard.
