Quick overview

The GNU Barrett is the pinnacle of all-mountain design. 25+ years of women’s board design heritage has culminated in the Barrett. Camber for stability and control, carbon strips for light-weight snap and edge-to-edge torsional precision and of course magne-traction for grip. This board rips the resort, pow and chopped up terrain. The evolution of Barrett’s model is premium performance in a pretty package.

Details

PROFILE

  • 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.

  • Asymmetry
    Anatomically speaking, you are better able to balance on your toes than on your heels. This has to do with the way you bend your knees. Since this makes it more difficult to exert good pressure on a whole side turn, Gnu has made boards with an asymmetrical design. The sidecut is shorter on the heel side and the core has been constructed differently. That means heel- and toe-side turns with almost the same precision and strength.


CORE

  • G3 Asym Eco Core
    This is the lightest core Gnu makes and an asymmetrical variant of the G3 Eco core. The distribution of the wood has been modified in the core. More Paulownia wood has been used on the heel side to give it a more natural feel and to make the board truly asymmetrical. 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.


REINFORCEMENTS

  • 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.


TOPSHEET

  • Eco Sublimated Bio Beans Top
    Super strong polyester topsheet made in the Mervin factory. The topsheet is made from eco-friendly Castor beans, which are ultra-light, scratch-resistant and water/snow repellent.


BASE

  • 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.


SIDEWALL

  • 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.
