When it comes down to it, the makings of a hard charging powder board and a straight up hardpack ripper are not all that different. Or, in the case of the GNU Banked Country C3 Snowboard, they’re exactly the same. Designed by the father son collab of Temple and Cannon Cummins, the Banked Country is built to chase huge snow days as well as gold medals at Baker’s Legendary Banked Slalom. The stiff directional shape, gripped edgehold, and big shovel-like nose bring smiles to the faces of OG’s and up and coming groms alike, through the deep days of winter and the rippin’ days of spring.
C3 Camber – Aggressive dominant camber zones out to the contacts combined with mild rocker between your feet. Subtle Banana rocker gives freestyle freedom with maximum end-to-end stability for big, high-speed lines. For aggressive, skilled riders.
G Lite 3 FCS Certified Aspen + Paulownia Core – Lightest, stronger, and most poppy.
Triaxial / Biaxial Fiberglass – Strong and poppy.
Carbon Power Bands – Radical response and pop.
UHMW Sidewalls – Tough and fast.
Eco Sintered Knife-cut Base – Fast, tough, and holds wax.
Progressive Pro Magne-Traction® – Directional serrated edge tech. A combination of radial entry side-cut and strategically located edge serrations provide smooth entry and powerful “fin like” edge hold in the tail.
Eco Sublimated Poly Top – Tough and environmentally nice.
