What can the Gnu Metal Gnuru snowboard do?
The great thing about this board is that it can do everything. We can’t really point out a weakness as there is none. The Metal Gnuru rocks all terrains. Featuring a EC2 profile which is a mix of a Banana rocker between the feet and elliptical camber up to the tips, the board works consistently on variable terrains and delivers a playful character without compromising edge control, reactivity and balance. The key points of this 2017 version are the asymmetrical sidecuts with a different frontside and backside bringing more precision and more power. If you want to rip from peak to park, the Metal Gnuru is your board.
