What happens when you take award winning Banana Camber Tech Magnetraction geometries and construction and cross it with the liveliest, smoothest environmentally friendly materials in world? Will you get the new GNU Eco Genetics All Terrain Freestyle and Freeride Banana! It all starts with Gnu mutant trees are cultivated to blend the best properties of Bamboo, Aspen, and Balsa to provide unbelievable pop! LCP liquid crystal polymer was developed as the fiber foundation for inter planetary Mars lander tires and has 10 times the strength of titanium which creates a lighter snowboard with incredible vibration absorption. New Bio-polymer top sheet material made from beans provides the industries strongest strength to weight ratios and is nice to the environment added with Eco Sublimation which is water based printing that is nice for the environment. We have combined these elements to bring you the worlds most advanced snowboard construction. The future has been altered! Eco Genetics sets a new norm for mutated snowboards.

A remarkable commitment towards environmentally friendly manufacturing meets all-terrain supremacy in the Gnu ECO Genetics C2-BTX Snowboard. The ECO Genetics has not only carved a name out for itself in the backcountry as an aggressive freeride board, but also for setting an industry benchmark for being nice to the environment.

The C2 Banana profile features a magical blend of rocker between the bindings and more aggressive camber outside the bindings for incredible float in powder, catch-free buttering on hardpack, and reliable response and stability at high speeds. Magne-Traction edges are serrated to slice through ice likes it's fresh corduroy, so you'll be carving down boilerplate with ease while everyone else is sliding out on their asses. A twin shape allows you to ride away from pow landings switch and dial in cab spins on the jump line in the park.
And the best part is you can feel better about your purchase knowing that the Bio Bean topsheet is made from castor beans instead of petroleum-based plastics, and the lightweight and strong aspen and palonia wood core comes from fast-growing, sustainably harvested trees so you're not contributing to the destruction of the rainforests.

GNU ECO Genetics C2BTX Snowboard Review:


Second Board

Heard great things about this board and it has not disappointed. Much more responsive than my last board. "Magne-traction" took a little getting use to, but the responsiveness and pop has made it a lot more fun that my previous board. It also handles powder very well, making it a great all-mountain board as described. Being only my second board I cannot contribute much more, other than it has definitely been a step in the right direction for me. The "eco" aspect as well as the fact that it is made in America doesn't hurt either.
