2022 GNU BANKED COUNTRY
The ultimate resort shred stick for advanced rippers who constantly watch the weather and score ridiculous amounts of pow but, rip everyday regardless of the conditions. Designed by legendary freestyle minded resort Billy Goater Temple Cummins and his skateboard influenced son Cannon. This fantasy father son project is a refined high performance ATV with one eye on float, the other eye on fly and the third eye on more Baker Banked Slalom gold duct tape. A big floaty nose, a powerful responsive construction, directional camber set back 1.5”, mild taper angle, a nice switch friendly tail and exclusive all NEW Directional Progressive Magne-Traction®. Banked Country is what you want to ride and where you want to be.
Profile: Camber - In a snowboard with rocker the center of the board is the only true contact point. This makes turn initiation easier, so you're less likely to catch an edge. This profile also makes it easier to bend, making it great for buttering. The lifted nose and tail make floating in pow effortless.This translates well for those looking to progress on rails and in the park as well.
Shape: Directional - Directional shapes generally feature a longer, softer nose and a shorter, stiffer tail. These shapes thrive in an all-mountain environment, as they possess the ability to ride more smoothly than their twin-tip counterparts and behave more reliably in variable snow conditions, anywhere from choppy snow to deeper powder. More twin-looking directional shapes where the difference between nose and tail appear minimal will perform best as crossover freestyle snowboards for those looking to still access the park, while more exaggerated differences will excel for additional float in deep powder.
Flex: 7 - 9 (Scale 1-10)
