Why we chose the Gnu Pro Choice Snowboard: It was a hands down favourite among our Test Team.
The Pro Choice is Jamie Anderson’s weapon of choice for when she wants to rip shit up. It’s a beefed-up version of her super popular Ladies Choice, built for when you need to pack a powerful punch wherever you are on the mountain.
“It makes it easier to get onto your heel edge and balances out your toe and heelside curves more than a regular snowboard”
It has an asymmetric sidecut, so it’s a tighter curve on the heelside, which is used to counteract your body’s biomechanical inefficiencies. It makes it easier to get onto your heel edge and balances out your toe and heelside curves more than a regular snowboard. This asymmetry doesn’t affect the twin nature of the board, as the heelside stays the same no matter whether you’re regs or goofy.
The board features Mervin’s C3 camber profile – which is their most aggressive – and has a shorter, mellower rocker between the bindings, then more dynamic camber under each binding for increased power and drive. The fact that it’s only very slightly rockered in the middle compared to its sister the Ladies Choice gives it more explosive pop and a more aggressive on-piste performance.
