Still proudly made in the USA, Gnu snowboards (and those of sister brands Lib Tech and Roxy) have never been the most affordable. Still, the Mervin factory has a celebrated reputation for quality, leading to widespread use of the term ‘worth it’.
At the same time, those eccentric board-builders in the Pacific Northwest have created this fine all-mountain option for a much lower price than you’d expect – with a Ronseal-esque name to boot.
“Usually you’d have to shell out a lot more to get these features”
The Gnu Money snowboard is classic Mervin, starting with the profile. The combination of rocker between the feet and camber at each end is a little mellower than what you’ll find on the more specialist Gnu Space Case, but for the right rider it offers up a terrific all-round ride.
