Review

Built with quality days on quality mountains in mind, the GNU Beauty is a freeride snowboard for experienced riders who want a powerful deck for their freestyle adventures. The board wizards at GNU placed a small region of stability-aiding rocker between the feet and camber out to the contact points for a powerful, precise and poppy ride. Combined with its medium flex it will allow you to manoeuvre effortlessly. It also floats nicely on powder. Aggressive riders will enjoy this setup, but also traditional riders who like that extra edge to it. The board’s sintered base holds wax really well and enables you to maintain speed even when you’re moving through slow spots. All in all, the GNU Beauty is not meant for looking sweet and glamorous on the mountain, this snowboard is a free riding beast that has a hunger for fresh pow and steep slopes.
