Why we chose the Gnu Banked Country Snowboard: We’re dubbing their factory ‘The Large Hadron Collider’ because Gnu are bringing worlds together with this brand-new snowboard. Banked slalom meets backcountry, old school meets next gen, and we meet one of our favourite boards for 21/22.
The Christy-Cummins clan are an institution within the Mervin family, and in snowboarding itself, mum and dad are two of the most prolific riders of the last three decades, so it only makes sense that their son Cannon is an absolute ripper too. For 2021/22 we’re seeing some much-anticipated teamwork from the father-son duo to bring to you the brand-new Gnu Banked Country.
A resort ripping juggernaut that eats up pump tracks, laughs at skin tracks and boosts over cat tracks with aplomb. This is a high spec snowboard built for high performance riding from high octane individuals. We’d expect no less from a family that has more Mt. Baker Legendary Banked Slalom wins than we’ve had hot dinners.

Who Is The Gnu Banked Country For?
Experienced riders who are looking for something really next level for charging in-bounds but is also more than capable of giving as good as it gets when the conditions are prime. Rad dads with 20 seasons under their belt find mutual ground with their up-and-coming rippers (who are already better than them) in this all-mountain freeride steamroller.
