Description: GNU Metal Guru EC2 Snowboard Blem

Quiver killing all terrain freestyle EC2 Banana Magne-Traction designs, environ- mentally hand made in the USA at an incredible price. Elliptical camber at each end for catch-free jibbing, unreal control everywhere and lively pop. Banana between your feet for hardpack and ice carving and float in pow. Magne-Traction for positive edgehold in all conditions including ice. This board is good times, easy riding performance freestyle and freeride. Get weird!

This board has some minor cosmetic defects-nothing that affects the performance

Key Features of the GNU Metal Guru EC2 Snowboard:
  • HANDBUILT IN THE USA: Every Gnu is handmade by Snowboard: The perfect quiver killer. Rides halfway between Banana Tech and C2. Effortlessly floats the pow, kills the jibs and has the pop and tip-to-tail stability to stomp whatever you launch. Banana Rocker between your feet, elliptical camber at the tips and tails. Don't eat the brown Banana.
  • CO-EXTRUDED BASE: A Gnu sublimation system exclusive oddity. Hard, fast and virtually maintenance free. Loves a good wax job but, still slides well when you forget to wax.
  • MAGNE-TRACTION: "Turns ice into powder"//Serrated edges give great edge hold all over the mountain especially on hard pack and blue ice!
  • COLUMBIAN GOLD ECO CORE: At Gnu we spend a lot of time experimenting in the woods. Our latest favorite arboreal discovery from the fast growing renewable forest is Columbian Gold. Incredibly light, strong, poppy and possibly weirdest most impossible core yet.
  • TRUE TWIN GEOMETRIES: Twin (equal length and equal width) tip and tails combined with a centered radial sidecut. Rides equally well in both directions with a focus on freestyle. Park, powder, pipe: perfect.
  • TRI-AXIAL GLASS: 3 way fiber orientation. Engineered to make the difficult easy.
  • Length (cm): 152, 155, 158, 162
  • Contact Length (cm): 113 (152), 116 (155), 119 (158), 122 (162)
  • Tip/Tail Width (cm): 29.2 (152), 29.5 (155), 29.8 (158), 30 (162)
  • Waist Width (cm): 25.1 (152), 25.3 (155), 25.5 (158), 25.8 (162)
  • Sidecut (m): 8.2 (152), 8.3 (155), 8.4 (158), 8.5 (162)

  • "Great for the midwest snow"

    , Lakeville,MN
    Pros: Good Edge Hold,Quick Edge to Edge,Lots of Pop,Buttery, Cons:

    You can do a lot with this board. The best think about it is the edge hold. We dont get a lot of fresh powder in MN, lots of hard pack and icy snow. This board holds its edge really well and is tough on jibs.

jacob d: I just bought the 2013 GNU METAL GURU board after about 6 years on a Morrow Old School Traditional Camber board. I LOVE IT!!! EC2 just means that you have camber (The boards natural position between the bindings protrudes upwards) under your bindings. The boards also has the banana traction technology. (In other words, the boards edges are "jagged" instead of streamlined straight like you see on most snowboards.) This made a big difference on icy terrain! Check out matts video on youtube I think you will find it helpful. I have not complaints about this board and the house offered a better price than I could find on ebay!

Type in 2013 METAL GURU in youtube and its the first video.

I would HIGHLY recommend this board for any still level! But also if you look on youtube, and type in a specific board name, there are many videos from the guys at THEHOUSE.COM that helped me find the board that was right for me. As I am sure you are now finding out, if you didn't already know, the technology and different styles of snowboards has EXPLODED in recent years. I couldn't have done it without the videos from THEHOUSE.COM!

GOOD LUCK!

eric b: BTX mean banana tech, and MTX included (I think). Essentially, this is the reverse camber tech for the board. This means it is like giving the board a rocker, if you leave it flat on the ground, you will see the board shape upwards a bit like a banana. EC2= Elliptical Camber / Banana Blend. Jan 22, 2014

Lisa M T: This board does have BTX technology. It says it on the board and it is quite noticeable. the EC2 stands for GNU's second version of elliptical camber which is more drastic than their other boards it seems. Jan 22, 2014

Michael M: So is EC2 BTX better than just EC2? or is it really just preference? Jan 22, 2014

Jeanine asked: "This board has some minor cosmetic defects"...what does that mean exactly? Scratches or missing paint or ??? Dec 3, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Matt GStaff: Hi Jeanine,

A cosmetic defect would be a visual blemish, like an offset color or an offset graphic. Being that it is only a cosmetic blemish, it does not alter the physical performance of the board. The GNU Metal Guru Snowboard maybe a little cheap, but it'll ride just as awesome.

A shopper asked: I am currently looking between the 2013 carbon credit for the 2013 Metal guru. I can decide between the two. I have looked all over youtube and the internet, but all of the reviews indicate they are both great boards. any advise? Nov 24, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Matt GStaff: That is a really tough choice! I tend to like more responsive boards like the Gnu Metal Guru, the camber in the EC2 BTX is just right and the triaxial glass give it just the right amount of pop... Then of course this the Carbon Credit, it's a TWS Good Wood Award Winner, and it seems to do everything just right.

I'd choose the Metal Guru, but you can't go wrong with either of these decks!
