Emitting fun all over the mountain.
The Gnu Carbon Credit BTX Snowboard leaves its footprint all over the mountain, along with its true-twin, freestyle influence. Utilizing BTX technology, Magne-Traction, and a poppy aspen core, this playful board will slay everything in front of it from the park to pow, leaving nothing untouched—except your rent money.
It starts with a BTX Banana profile, which features a magical blend of rocker between the bindings and mellow camber outside the bindings for incredible float in powder, catch-free buttering on hardpack, and response and stability at high speeds. Magne-Traction technology takes it up a notch with edges that are serrated to slice through ice likes it's fresh corduroy, so you can lay down high-speed carves and stomp tricks on icy landings while everyone else is washing out left and right. The lightweight aspen wood core is snappy for boosting big ollies and linking quick turns, and the extruded base is easy to repair so you don't have to get whole new board on account of a few dings.
- Rocker between feet with subtle camber towards tips
- True twin shape with centered stance
- Magne-Traction edges
- Aspen wood core
- Sintered base

Board is good especially for the price

I've ridden this board over 100 times and it is awesome but mine was the 2012 model. Megna traction is the way to go you can take sharp turns on ice without ever sliding or blow up the POW and bomb steep slopes without turning. This board is great in trees and in the park. I've used it on 2 foot POW days and it preforms awesome. This board does lack pop however compared to most boards on the market. You can feel everything under your feet and this board is great on rails. This board is great if you're a beginner or an expert I've since upgraded to the Travis rice HP lib tech and I'm loving it.
alittle crazy.. 50/50 opinion.. sketchy

the carbon credit is defiitely alittle unpredictable at first... binding tuning and stance definitely need to be spot on as any type of unbalance to your setup can cause an edge to dig in and send you flying!! board does behave well on ice, however, the edges do dig in and the catch hard.. that being said id rather use a traditional edge board over magna traction. if im meant to slide or wash out, id rather "slide" out on a trandard edge, than catapult myself into the ground with the magna traction..
