2011 GNU Rider's Choice C2BTX Help

Hello Snowboarding Forum,

I am coming to the experts to ask for help! I am looking at purchasing this board for my husband and have a few questions....

1. What does C2BTX mean?
2. What does the length mean, the longer=the faster it goes? (His height 5'10, 180lb)
3. What is the difference between the wide and non-wide?

He is an expert snowboarder and likes to go fast, is not much for the parks. I know that this is the board that he wants, but I am not sure about the few minor things. I want to make sure that he does not have to return it. Any assistance that you can provide would be so much appreciated.

Thanks for your help!

Hey i'm about the exact same size and just bought this board in 157.5. C2BTX mean its a hybrid board that has rocker between the bindings and camber under foot. Length of the board deals with the riders weight and what type of rideing he will be doing. The difference between the wide versions means they are for riders with bigger feet. If he has a foot that is bigger than about a size 11 id recommend the wide version. I prob spend half my time in the park however, either the 157.5 or 161.5 would work fine for him.

He is a 10 size boot. So, I don't think he needs the wide after hearing your comments.
He likes to do mostly black or double black runs and go off trail, he likes to go fast more then anything.. not much into the park. For this, which would be better 157.5 of 161.5. Where does the difference lie in the performance with the different sizes, if any?

By the way, thanks so much for your quick reply.

If he never goes in the park go for the 161.5. The difference between the 157.5 and the 161.5 is that the 161.5 is just a little stiffer and will be better for freeriding.
