Featuring an ingenious design that syncs with your body's every move, the Gnu Eco Impossible EC2 PBTX Snowboard delivers a balanced, natural feel and explosive performance across the entire mountain. Whether you're ripping groomers or slashing powder, the Eco Impossible is so fun to ride that you'll be wondering why all snowboards aren't like this.
The key to its natural and efficient ride is Gnu's revolutionary Smart A.S.S. design. Standing for Asymmetric Symmetric Synchronization, Smart A.S.S. tech is a fancy way to describe the asymmetric shape, flex pattern, sidecut, and Magne-Traction edge serration found on the Eco-Impossible. Based on the principle that toeside turns naturally leverage more power than heelside turns, Smart A.S.S. tech gives you a deeper, shorter-radius sidecut on the heelside edge, as well as a shorter heelside edge contact, both designed to leverage heelside turns more efficiently for a well-balanced ride. Plus, the board's asymmetric core has a softer flex on the heelside edge, engaging into heelside turns effortlessly. Going one step further, the Eco-Impossible's Magne-Traction edges are shaped differently on the heel and toeside edges. The heelside edge features Power Serration for extra grip, while the toeside edge uses Finesse Serration for a smooth, less-catchy feel.
Magnesium fiberglass shaves weight while increasing strength and snap, and a Liquid Crystal Polymer layer dampens the ride for a smoother feel. Aspen in the middle of the core provides lightweight strength, while poplar on the toe edge offers pop and paulownia on the heel edge gives it a smooth flex. The board's Bio Beans topsheet remains environmentally friendly with an extremely high strength-to-weight ratio, and its sintered base is fast enough to send the biggest freestyle features without a hitch. Simply put, this board rips anywhere, anytime. Pick one up today and raise your shred IQ into the realm of freestyle genius.
