Stronger and more precise than the Box Scratcher, the Gnu Box Knife Snowboard offers up extra muscle to handle burly big-mountain, backcountry hits and riding away from them successfully. True twin symmetry and a freestyle feature-focused design keep this board park-oriented, while its camber-dominant profile and Original Power construction enables a more aggressive, hard-charging approach to the mountain to give you confidence when flying down in-runs and riding out choppy landings.
Starting with the camber-dominant C3 profile, the Box Knife has aggressive camber at both the tips and tail with a mild rocker profile between the bindings. This results in powerful turns, enhanced edge control, and poppy ollies, while the mild rocker between your feet adds a forgiving feel and float in powder. Magne-Traction edges are serrated to slice through ice like it's fresh corduroy, so you'll be carving into bulletproof park jumps with confidence as everyone else is sliding out on their little butts. Then, the true twin shape makes it easier to stomp landings switch and keeps the spin weight balanced for smooth rotations.
Making up this board's core, the lightweight and strong blended aspen and Columbian Gold wood core comes from fast-growing, sustainably-harvested trees, so you're not contributing to the destruction of the rain forests. Then, the triax/biax fiberglass reinforcement ensures versatile torsional flex for stability on high-flying backcountry days, while the Birch internal sidewalls and UHMW sintered widewalls both boost overall speed and durability. A sintered base absorbs wax exceptionally well to hold fast on slower days. On top of all that, the Box Knife was made in the USA by snowboarders with jobs so you're truly supporting the industry when you take this board for a spin.
