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.
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.

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.
