Gnu Womens Ladies Choice C2BTX Snowboard
Jamie Anderson Won the gold medal in Sochi 2014 on this board.
The Ladies Choice continues to be the choice for high performance freestyle ladies. Embrace your weirdness and choose the LC for your expressive tool this season. For 13/14 we combine the best of all techs to make a board that’s truly ready for anyone and anything. With EC2 BTX, Magne-Traction and smart A.S.S. Pickle Tech, balance through asymmetry is achievable for the pro in all of us. Elliptical C2 twin geometries provide pop and stability for aggressive lines on the mountain or in the park. Find balance through asymmetry and dream big with the Ladies Choice!

Anatomical oddities:
Your body is asymmetric heel to toe your board should be too. Balance through Asymmetry: This board is designed to work with your body’s natural asymmetries…balancing your toe and heelside playing into the strengths of each sides mechanics to enhance control and performance.

Toe side:
More finesse through your toes and precise fingertip like edge control. Increased angle of edge attack can be achieved through cumulative articulation of toe, ankle and knee joints. Balance. Heelside: More power through the heels. A lower angle of edge attack and more power can be achieved due to natural joint mechanics. Stomp.

Minimal adaptation:
The Impossible A.S.S. pickle is ergonomically designed around your natural kinesiology so you don’t have to adapt mentally or physically to use it. Intuition and a dream is all you need.

Imperceptible Perfection:
Initially A.S.S. seems mind alteringly weird…but what it really means is an easy ride and lots of fun. Ride an A.S.S Pickle and you will feel a difference for the first few turns as your body and mind expect what snowboarding used to feel like and then your body and board will synchronize into perfect harmony and you will achieve a state we call imperceptible design perfection and new levels of joy and performance will be realized.

Additional Features / Laminates

Handcrafted in the USA near Canada! - Every Gnu snowboard is handbuilt in the U.S.A by weirdos with jobs. 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 “tucked in” just past the contacts for minimum spin weight… heavy unnecessary steel edge is eliminated from the tips and tails. Bi Ax, Tri Ax and exotic reinforcement fiber blends are used individually in combination to tune each board for its intended rider and terrain. Keep riding snowboards built by snowboarders.

About the Art - Sarah King lives the life people dream of. Artist, snowboarder, surfer, world traveler, free spirit. Her use of text in her artwork conveys messages that give depth to the pretty pictures, making you think about the bigger picture, and the world we live in. For 13/14 she’s given the Ladies Choice a world of balanced opposites. Night and day, ocean and mountain, all come together from nose to tail as she describes the path water takes from sky to mountains, down rivers and creeks to the ocean and back. The Ladies Choice is even more balanced than ever with new improved technologies so it deserves a graphic that makes sense of the universe and makes you feel balanced just strapping into it.
