Gnu Beauty women’s snowboard – 2016MSRP: $539.95
Get it for: $539.95
The Beauty negotiates ugly terrain with confidence. It excels in pretty, powder-filled landscapes too.
An adaptation of GNU’s popular men’s board, the Beast, Barrett Christy trusts this baby to get her through any scenario. The Gnu Beauty women’s snowboard’s directional profile is hallmarked by a big, floaty nose with mellow-entry rocker and a tapered, low-rise tail. Ultra-high-molecular-weight material is utilized in the tip, tail and outer sidewalls for impact protection, which equates to exceptional durability. This is backed by a lightning fast, tough-as-nails sintered base and birch internal sidewalls for extra snap. Pendleton adds the final touch with a unique graphic inspired by their 100 Year Anniversary National Park Blanket.
For the rider who: doesn’t like fighting to stay afloat and is ready to think outside the twin-tip scenario that dominates women’s snowboard offerings.
Also available in a split for $849.95
