Gnu Men's Carbon Credit Series BTX Wide Snowboard:
You know that line about one ring to rule them all? If someone made a movie about the Gnu Carbon Credit Series BTX Wide, the script writers would have to have a line about one board for every reason, throughout everyone's seasons. Except it's not a fantasy--the Gnu Carbon Credit Series BTX Wide is really that good, and this specific part of the collection is sized for guys with boot sizes 10 and up. The Carbon Credit Wide balances your edge control at the center of the snowboard through a unique Banana reverse camber. Banana Tech is a snowboard-specific camber that Gnu adopted from Lib Tech, a snowboard R&D company that created the Banana camber. Because the camber in skis and the camber in snowboards are completely different, someone needed to optimize the snowboard shape because riders have both of their feet on a single board, while skiers put one boot on each ski. Banana tech livens the traditional camber dead space between your snowboard boots for complete and consistent edge hold, so you enjoy a far more responsive ride on a variety of terrain. It also lightens the loads on the tips and tails so you're less likely to catch an edge in those places. The Carbon Credit Wide features a lively Mervin A.5 core made from durable aspen wood and reinforced with biaxial fiberglass to maintain a predictable and forgiving flex. That makes it great for new riders, but also ideal for advanced snowboarders who are looking for a consistent all-terrain platform that still offers plenty of response and pop everywhere on any snow-covered mountain.
