Quick overview

The ultimate resort shred stick for advanced rippers who constantly watch the weather and rip everyday regardless of the conditions. The GNU Banked Country is designed by legendary freestyle minded resort Billy Goater, Temple Cummins and his skateboard influenced son Cannon. A high performance ATV with one eye on float, the other eye on fly and the third on banked slaloms. A big floaty nose, a powerful responsive construction, directional camber and 5 cm setback. Banked Country is what you want to ride and where you want to be.



  • C3Camber
    C3 is the most aggressive shape from the Mervin factory. Still a rocker between the feet but with a lot more emphasis on the camber under the bindings. This gives you a board that rides more aggressively, is more precise and has more pop and still manages to create some float.


  • G2 Eco Core
    This is Gnu's light core. The core consists of aspen and Paulownia wood, which is strong, poppy and light. The Tri-Ax/Bi-Ax fibreglass keeps the weight low and makes the board responsive and precise. All Gnu cores are Mervin Made, meaning they are environmentally friendly.


  • Tri-Ax/Bi-Ax
    A layer of Tri-Ax/Bi-Ax fibreglass is added to the Gnu boards. This triaxial/biaxial reinforcement ensures extra responsiveness and a more active snowboard in all types of terrain.


  • Eco Sublimated Poly Top
    Strong polyester topsheet made in the Mervin factory. Eco-friendly, with a beautiful design.


  • Sintered Knife Cut Base
    This is Gnu's sintered base. This base is fast, durable and absorbent. Like other sintered bases, the wax absorbs quickly and improves the glide.


  • UHMW Sidewall
    A fast and strong sidewall that can handle some heavy-duty work.

  • Magne-Traction
    Magne-traction is a wavy-edged snowboard. Just like a serrated knife that cuts through bread, Magne-Traction cuts through the snow. Gnu uses seven tactically placed waves in the steel edge, which results in a lot of grip in icy and tough conditions.
