Gnu Women's B-Street BTX Snowboard:
Talk to a snowboard salesperson about a jibbing board and they'll immediately point you in the direction of women's park and pipe snowboards. What about a women's snowboard that you can jib anywhere on the mountain? That's one of the key features in the Gnu Women's B-Street BTX that separates it from the rest of the women's snowboards out there. It's a durable freestyle twin-tip that's perfect for any experienced rider who wants to play on all sides of the mountain. The B-Street BTX is slightly stiffer than the Gnu Women's B-Nice boards, especially in longer lengths. It features the same Banana Tech BTX camber that Torah Bright used on her snowboard to win the halfpipe competition in the X Games and the US Open. 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 B-Street features a lively Mervin A.5 core made from durable aspen wood and reinforced with biaxial fiberglass to maintain a predictable and forgiving flex. If you like to jib and you don't like your riding style defined by categorization, the Gnu B-Street BTX is clearly up your alley.
