  • a users guide to weirdness

  • Since Aristotle, man has organized his knowledge vertically in seperate and unrelated groups - Science, Religion,

    Sex, Work, etc. The main emphasis in his language, his system of storing knowledge,

    has been the identification of objects, rather than relationships between objects.

    He is now forced to use his tools of reasoning separately and for one situation

    at a time. Had man been able to see past this hypnotic way of thinking, to distrust it (as Einstein did)and to resystemize his

    knowledge so that it all would be related horizontally, he would enjoy the perfect sanity and the endless wave that is life.

    We here at Gnu adopt this philosophy and encourage you to think horizontally, and

    are very excited to introduce you to our new logo which encompasses all that is horizontal

    knowledge: TRIANGLE. SQUARE. CIRCLE.

  • as you read this other snowboard brands

    are trying to figure out how to re-market

    the technological break- throughs we made by simply

    being curious. we try new things!

    Look at your toes. Now... look at your heels...hmm they look different. Weird?! Asymmetric sidecuts and construction to balance the different turning mechanics required for heelside and toe side turns. Your body is asymmetric your snowboard should be asymmetric. Ride better have more fun balanced through asymmetry!

    Every Gnu is handmade by snowboarders with jobs in the USA. Gnus are built with tough and fast UHMW external sidewalls and impact resistant end grain internal sidewalls. Ultra-light weight rugged "polymer bumper" sandwich tip and tails are standard on all Gnus. Steel edges are used for control along the contact area and "tucked in" just past the contacts for minimum spin weight... heavy unnecessary steel edge is eliminated from the tips and tails. Banana Tech, EC2, or C2 BTX camber Banana tech combo and Magne-Traction serrated edges are far from standard but are standard on every Gnu snowboard.

    Serrated edges give great edge hold all over the mountain especially on hard pack and blue ice!

    Magne-TractionTurns ice into powder

    Pickle Tech.

    EXPERIMENT!

    Banana Tech.All terrain rocker placed specifically between your feet where it belongs. Full tip-to-tail edge contact when you stand on your board for all terrain performance. Banana Tech is easy to ride, rips the hardpack and ice, kills the jibs and floats unbelievably. Bananas!EC2 Banana Tech: 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. Impossible Series. Dont eat the brown Banana.C2 Power Banana Tech: C2 Floats the pow, kills the jumps and steeps and has the pop and tip to tail stability to stomp whatever you launch. Banana Tech Rocker between your feet, camber at the tips and tails. The perfect solution for aggressive power snowboarding.

    Magnesium is impossibly light, incredibly strong, tastes bitter, is explosively flammable and burns white hot. Experiment and expand your mind with the Magnesium fiber technology we built into every Gnu Impossible Asym. Sym. Sync. Pickle. Warning do not store your Impossible near woodstoves, fireplaces or Pat Bridges.

    In 2009 the world's fastest growing trees in the Gnu Eco Timber farm benefited from a combination of moist evenings, diffused daylight sunshine and being on the north American avian flywayabundant natural nitrogen from goose and duckdroppings resulted in a exceptional harvest of long fibered lightweight poppy woods that we call "nature's fiberglass". This very exceptional crop has been carefully seasoned and built into cores and is the light poppy center of our 2012 Gnu Snowboards.Columbian Gold: At Gnu we spend a lot of time experimenting in the forest. Our latest favorite arboreal discovery is fast growing renewable Columbian Gold. Incredibly light, strong, poppy wood truly is a weird and wonderful foundation for performance snowboards.

    Liquid crystallinity is achieved through the heating of a polymer past its melting point, during the cooling phase polymers form highly organized linearly alignedself-reinforcingstructures resulting in incredible mechanical properties. Strength, chemical and fire resistance.Strength in a fiber allows us to use less material to achieve the desired physical performance translating into a lighter weight composite. LCP also has a very low vibration frequency and with 10 times the strength of titanium LCP was used as the foundation for interplanetary Mars lander tires. Built into a Gnusnowboard these strong light, damp aramid polyester fibers quiet chatter from rough terrain and create an incredibly smooth, poppy, lightweight ride.

    Graphic by Pinski, he likes patterns.

    More technology than any board in history! Impossibly strong ultralight weight Magnesium fiber. Elliptical C2 Twin Asymmetric Banana Camber combination geometries.Designed forduck freestyle stances! Rugged Bio Beans top material, glow in the dark sidewalls, lightweight Columbian Gold eco wood and sintered bases. Balance through Asymmetry!

    Your body is asymmetric your board should be too!

    asymmetry

    DUCK! DUCK!
