The Riders Choice says it all in the name- it’s everyone’s favourite. It’s the perfect go anywhere, do anything board, if you’re looking for a one board quiver killer then clap your peepers on this little beauty.
Mid flexing for your comfort so it’s the ultimate formula for an all mountain slayer. Stiff enough to hold its line when you want to really lay into your carves, soft enough so you can still jib and play around.
“It’s the perfect go anywhere, do anything board”
The Riders Choice uses Gnu’s C2X profile, which features a shorter rockered section between the feet to keep the board a bit more floaty and mellow. Outside of this, it has longer and more aggressive cambered sections outwards running to the tip and tail. The Camber keeps the board feeling lively and dynamic and improves on piste performance by loading pressure towards the nose and tail.
Gone are the days of sketching out on a patch of ice, the Riders Choice features their Asymmetric Magnetraction. Serrations run down both edges of the board, like a steak knife, to increase the surface area and bite, but with an Asym the waves are deeper on the heel edge. The deeper serration helps to reduce fatigue and increase power on the heel side turns, which is your body’s naturally weaker side.
The durable, sintered base will keep you ripping and gripping way into the late season slush, keep it waxed and you’ll be mach 10. As well as being a rad board, it’s also pretty rad for Mother Nature- like all Gnu boards, it’s manufactured with zero hazardous waste.
An awesome choice for a stronger rider, who wants to turn the whole mountain into their own personal playground.
