The Gnu Women's Velvet Gnuru EC2 Snowboard offers a fun-focused path to all-mountain enlightenment. With its forgiving flex, versatile profile, and velvety smooth ride, this board is here to guide everyone from beginners to masters along their spiritual shred journeys.
New for this year, Gnu added an asymmetric sidecut to help you become more one with your board than ever before. It features a deeper heelside sidecut, a shorter heelside contact length, and an asym flex to make your heelside turns as powerful and natural feeling as your toeside turns. The EC2 BTX Banana profile features a boundary-transcending blend of rocker between the bindings and elliptical camber outside the bindings to make initiating turns easier and prevent catching edges, because less falling definitely equals more fun for everyone. Magne-Traction uses several extra contact points along the edge for enhanced grip on icy slopes.
A blend of aspen and golden poplar keeps the Velvet Gnuru lightweight, yet strong, and it offers a crisp, poppy feel. UHMW sidewalls ensure durability, and the sintered base is fast and retains wax well to keep you moving through flat spots with ease. Perhaps best of all, this board was made in the USA by snowboarders with jobs, so you can feel good knowing your purchase is better for the environment and the economy.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
So this is my first snowboard purchase- I learned on borrowed and rented boards, and bought this after my first season. I took it out once last winter, and have been breaking it in this season. Riding a board designed for women is a game changer! I love it. I live in the NE so we're working with icier/more humid conditions than out west - the Gnuru carves beautifully, has a solid edge hold, turns on a dime. I'd classify myself as novice-ish: not a beginner, but definitely not advanced, and the flex is stiff enough that I think it'll take me quite a few seasons to feel like I might want something stiffer. Overall, I've been really pleased and would recommend it. I'm 5'7"/115 and bought the 150cm and it's perfect.
