COVER


Gnu was created in a hypothermia induced delirium in the early 80's by Mike Olson who has been building snowboards since 1977. Mike Pioneered Deep sidecuts and too many other odd things to mention here. Today Mike has been joined by a Gnu intellectual spiritual creative collective who's body temperatures have climbed to near fever levels. Mind and performance expanding philosophies, geometries, materials and technologies spawned in the resulting creative delirium have been incorporated into this year始s Gnu body of work. See galaxies, earth, nature and humans as they really are, recognize simple anatomical designs and patterns that are all around us. Complexity becomes simplicity, solutions appear in our minds as bright colored gifts. Synchronization and balance achieved through awareness and a harmonizing oppositional interaction with natural asymmetry. The Impossible becomes possible. Every gnu is still handbuilt by snowboarders with jobs in the USA just like the were in the beginning.

NOW EVEN WEIRDER!


Banana Tech.

WEIRD SCIENCE as you read this other snowboard brands are trying to figure out how to re-market the technological breakthroughs we made by simply being curious. we try new things!

Magne-Traction “Turns ice into powder” Serrated edges give great edge hold all over the mountain especially on hard pack and blue ice!

Every Gnu is handmade by snowboarders with jobs in the USA. Gnus are built with tough and fast UHMW external sidewalls and impact resistant end grain internal sidewalls. Ultra-light weight rugged "polymer bumper" sandwich tip and tails are standard on all Gnus. Steel edges are used for control along the contact area and "tucked in" just past the contacts for minimum spin weight... heavy unnecessary steel edge is eliminated from the tips and tails. Banana Tech, EC2, or C2 BTX camber Banana tech combo and Magne-Traction serrated edges are far from standard but are standard on every Gnu snowboard.

Pickle Tech. Look at your toes. Now... look at your heels... hmm they look different. Weird?! Asymmetric sidecuts and construction to balance the different turning mechanics required for heelside and toe side turns. Your body is asymmetric your snowboard should be asymmetric. Ride better have more fun balanced through asymmetry!

All terrain rocker placed specifically between your feet where it belongs. Full tip-to-tail edge contact when you stand on your board for all terrain performance. Banana Tech is easy to ride, rips the hardpack and ice, kills the jibs and floats unbelievably. Bananas! EC2 Banana Tech: The perfect quiver killer. Rides halfway between Banana Tech and C2. Effortlessly floats the pow, kills the jibs and has the pop and tipto-tail stability to stomp whatever you launch. Banana Rocker between your feet, elliptical camber at the tips and tails. Impossible Series. Don’t eat the brown Banana. C2 Power Banana Tech: C2 floats the pow, kills the jumps and steeps and has the pop and tip to tail stability to stomp whatever you launch. Banana Rocker between your feet, camber at the tips and tails. The perfect solution for aggressive power snowboarding.

In 2009 the world's fastest growing trees in the Gnu Eco Timber farm benefited from a combination of moist evenings, diffused daylight sunshine and being on the North American avian flyway…abundant natural nitrogen from goose and duck droppings resulted in an exceptional harvest of long fibered lightweight poppy woods that we call "nature's fiberglass". This crop has been carefully seasoned and built into cores and is the light poppy center of our 2012 Gnu Snowboards. Columbian Gold: At Gnu we spend a lot of time experimenting in the forest. Our latest favorite arboreal discovery is fast growing renewable Columbian Gold. Incredibly light, strong, poppy wood truly is a weird and wonderful foundation for performance snowboards.

Magnesium is impossibly light, incredibly strong, tastes bitter, is explosively flammable and burns white hot. Experiment and expand your mind with the Magnesium fiber technology we built into every Gnu Impossible Asym. Sym. Sync. Pickle. Warning do not store your Impossible near woodstoves, fireplaces or Pat Bridges.

Liquid crystallinity is achieved through the heating of a polymer past its melting point, during the cooling phase polymers form highly organized linearly aligned selfreinforcing structures resulting in incredible mechanical properties. Strength, chemical and fire resistance.  Strength in a fiber allows us to use less material to achieve the desired physical performance translating into a lighter weight composite. LCP also has a very low vibration frequency and with 10 times the strength of titanium LCP was used as the foundation for interplanetary Mars lander tires. Built into a Gnu snowboard these strong light, damp aramid polyester fibers quiet chatter from rough terrain and create an incredibly smooth, poppy, lightweight ride.  Eco Gen, B Pro, Danny Kass.

NATURE DESIGNED HUMANS PERFECTLY ASYMMETRICALLY. New!

More technology than any board in history! Elliptical C2 Twin Asymmetric Banana Camber combination geometries. Impossibly strong ultralight weight Magnesium fiber, rugged Bio Beans top material, glow in the dark sidewalls, lightweight Columbian Gold eco wood and sintered bases.  The Asym Sym Sync takes Balance through Asymmetry to the next level. Asym Core, asym toe and heel side sidecuts, asym contacts, asym shape. Standing sideways on a snowboard your body is different from heel to toe and your turn mechanics are different from your heelside and toeside. The Impossible perfectly balances nature's asymmetry allowing complete freestyle freedom. Take an impossible for a run and you will immediately feel the difference for a few turns, then as your body and board syncronize into perfect harmony with technology you will achieve the state Gnu snowboard spiritual intellectuals call "imperceptible perfection" and new levels of joy and performance will be realized. Get balanced and get weird!

GNU DESIGNED A SNOWBOARD THAT IS PERFECTLY ASYMMETRICAL! Your body is asymmetric front to back, your body is symmetric side to side.  Snowboard turn mechanics are completely different on your toe side than heelside.  The Asym Sym Sync takes the next re-evolutionary step to address this directly working in harmony with your body and ducked freestyle stances to balance asymmetry. Symmetric tip to tail like your body, asymmetric toe to heel like your body.   Balance through asymmetry! 

A.S.S. Pickle tech

EASY TO RIDE!

HEEL SIDE SCIENCE Your heels are like your palms providing power. Anatomically you are not able to tip your board as high on edge as your toe side but you can apply much more power due to the direct linear link from your heel up through your leg. On your heelside you have a highback to help assist you in tipping and holding your board on edge while turning, holding or making subtle adjustments to your line. The Asym Sym Sync is designed to work with your highback to further balance your body’s asymmetry. A deeper heelside side sidecut and shorter contact provides a range of turning arcs, pivotal turns and reactions when the board is put on edge with the power and the lower heelside angles of attack that will syncronize with the turning toe side arcs.  

heelside contact curiosity The shorter heelside contact length allows heel pivotal turns and reactions with power and lower angle of attack that balance with your toe sides increased ability to hold a line and manipulate/bend a board into a desired arc.

heel side asym core

Softer flexing core on heels side allows the board to flex into a tighter arc at a lower angle.

TOE SIDE SCIENCE

Your toes are like your fingers providing fine tuned micro control. Anatomically you can tip your board up onto your toes into a very aggressive angle attack and you can finely manipulate your toeside edge hold and the amount of board flex and arc you can put into the board.  The Asym Sym Sync's mellower toeside sidecuts and longer contact is designed to balance this asymmetry creating toe edge stability and a range of turning arcs that align perfectly with the heelside turns.  

Toe side contact curiosity

The longer toeside edge contact provides stability and edge control that can be easily manipulated into desired arcs with precise finger like toe control and steep angle of attack.

Toe side asym core.

Firmer flexing core on toeside provides added stability and control necessary with fine tuned toe side turn mechanics.

DUCKS

The Duck Asym of the Asym Sym Sync balances the amount of board contact behind and in front of your feet for stable balanced pop and float.  


Four Time Mt Baker Banked Slalom Champion and billy goat freeride line master Temple Cummins is a committed snowboarder. Temple has worked closely with the Gnu design crew since he was 13. These days he is a man who knows what it takes to make a snowboard you can count on when you get yourself in a little deeper than you should have, need to lay down a perfect carved turn against the grain to keep the boarder cross jocks a little lower on the podium or dork around with friends and family. Temple rides his own C2 BTX Freeride power freestyle geometries. The best features of camber and banana tech-nology combined for aggressive all terrain riders... you get the endto-end stability and pop of camber at each end with the proven carving performance and soft snow float of Banana Tech between your feet. Solid momentum carrying construction, Anvitex Dampener, Farmed eco woods, sintered base. Temple, Forrest Burki and Matt Edgers put it to the test all year long. This board will not let you down.

Temple likes pow. He chose Mt. Baker as his home mountain for a reason. World record snow fall. He spent years learning lines at Baker discovering increasingly more challenging Billy Goat lines partly in search of a challenge and partly in search of pow stashes that he could count on being unmolested no matter how long after a storm. With increasing pressure on all the "relatively" easily accessed inbounds lines and Mt. Baker’s deep talent pool Temple has opened his eyes towards the virtually unlimited NW backcountry possibilities. His Billy Goat split offer him endless access to what he craves… uncrowded steeps and pow. Add the peace and tranquility of quality time in the forests and mountains, the satisfaction of doing it yourself and the Billy Goat Split becomes a magical vehicle that transports you to the best days of your year and runs of your life. Temple’s favorite time tested C2 BTX Magnetraction freeride geometries split in two.

MODEL NAME

Danny was a grom once, now he is an American hero keeping kids off camber. Bananas are the perfect. Kids will learn faster, fall less and have way more fun. If you have kids, or sell to kids, or sell to parents of kids, you have a social and moral obligation to put them on a Banana with Magne-Traction. Treacherous camber was okay for you and Danny, but not the next generation. Please don’t let kids ride camber! Handbuilt in the U.S.A. by snowboarders with jobs!
