There have always been shifts and trends in snowboarding and the last few years we have seen a return of camber as well as directional shapes...enter the GNU Antigravity. A medium flexing board that is ideal for all-mountain carving and powder slashing, the Antigravity is best suited for the beginner plus to solid intermediate rider who wants a capable all-terrain board. The camber dominant C3 profile adds just a touch of rocker between the feet that not only makes it easier to flex into a turn, it increases edge hold between the feet throughout the turn for superior edge-hold. The Co-Ex base is a combination of sintered and extruded bases.
This unique extrusion process creates the affordable and easy to repair product you get with extruded bases, but also creates a porous surface of a sintered base that holds wax better and is faster. To top things off the Tri-Ax/Bi-Ax fiberglass layup provides the pop and power you need to get off the ground and boost out of turns, but the torsional flex you want to adjust your edges throughout your carve by ankle steering. Whether you digging trenches or pow slashing the GNU Antigravity has got you covered. *Artist - Shawn Bishop @sbishbish

Directional shape is the classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while providing plenty of float in powder. A softer nose allows for a smoother roll into your carve, while a stiffer waist and tail provides better control through the turn and a stronger finish.
Built with traditional contact points, C3 is the closest you'll get to real camber with the addition of rocker. The board bows up off the ground between the contacts points, but also has a mild amount of rocker between the feet. This allows for increased edge contact between the feet throughout your turn.
Strategically located and sized edge serrations provide unreal edge hold and control in all conditions. Allowing you to lay down your edge confidently on the iciest days.
G lite 1 Core

Tri-Ax / Bi-Ax Glass
A combination of Tri-Ax and Bi-Ax glass allows for flex where you want it, but stability, strength, and pop when you need it.
