GNU Dirty Pillow BTX -
The Dirty Pillow BTX Snowboard from Gnu is a strange snowboard in a non-existent category of its own. Progressive park / powder freestyle, this twin Banana, mellow Magne-Traction design features long floaty tip and tail entry curves for high speed powder floatation in both directions. A short Banana contact for unbelievable hard-pack, ice edge grip and tight terrain maneuver-ability, line adjustment, with mid-wide waist widths and a clean, catch-free, smooth riding shape.

Designed with new snow resort freestyle riding in mind, this banana rips the hardpack, park, rails, cat tracks, ice, crud and everything that isn’t pow that you will come across on a typical resort “pow” day. The Dirty Pillow… a progressive park and parking lot rat’s all terrain pow freestyle board.

Traction and Grip:

  • Magne-Traction .5 edges


  • Aspen wood core
  • Sintered base
  • UHMW sidewalls
  • Co Ex topsheet
  • True twin shape with centered stance
  • Rocker between feet with mellow camber towards tips
It doesn't matter if you're a park rat or a powder machine, the Gnu® Dirty Pillow BTX is an all-terrain monster!
True Twin shape features a long floaty tip and tail with entry curves for high speed powder floatation in both directions, a short banana contact for unbelievable hard-pack, ice edge grip and tight terrain maneuver-ability, line adjustment, with mid-wide waist widths and a clean, catch-free, smooth riding shape.
BTX Rocker between your feet combined with flat to mild cambers out to the contact. Easy riding and turning, great jibbing and epic float in pow.
Magne-Traction .5 features serrated edges to give great edge hold all over the mountain, especially on hard pack and ice.
A1 - Aspen Core is light and strong, proving long-lasting pop and great feel.
Sintered Base features compression hardened amorphous UHMW skived from the billet to create the toughest, fastest, best wax holding base material around.
Co-extruded topsheet.
Ultra High Molecular Weight exterior sidewalls made from soy-based elastomer are laminated to five internal wood layers for totally bombproof sidewalls.
Made in the U.S.A.

Blurring the lines between powder boards and park sticks, the Gnu Dirty Pillow BTX Snowboard is a whole new animal that not only devours fresh snow, but also dominates hardpack, chunder, jumps, rails, cat tracks, ice, and anything else you might encounter in addition to the deep stuff on your typical 'pow' day at the resort. 

Tried and true Banana technology allows for effortless float in powder and catch-free fun on hardpack thanks to a blend of rocker between your feet and super-subtle camber outside the bindings. Magne-Traction .5 mellows out the additional contact points to give it a looser feel without compromising its ability to maintain edge hold on icy slopes. A mid-wide width provides additional float in deep stuff, and prevents toe drag for riders with bigger boots. The aspen core is lightweight and snappy for poppy ollies and a lively feel.

Evo (2014)
The GNU Dirty Pillow BTX Snowboard is a befuddling mutant hybrid child of a pow board and it's forbidden love affair with a park board. This twin Banana board was conceived with the notion of resort "pow" days where the "pow" isn't really POW . . . If you have to ask, you'll probably never figure it out and you should just click the "back" button now. Tight maneuverability, instantaneous line-adjustment and edge grip meets cool float and mellow shape in the DP.

GNU Dirty Pillow BTX Review:


Not that it affects the board's performance at all or would affect my decision to buy it, but the previous two years graphics with the chairlifts were 52847 times cooler.
