Gnu 2014 Snowboards

Stoked to see the upcoming 2014 decks from Gnu.

Left to right:

Impossible (EC2), Billy Goat is now C3 (yup, camber overall with a dip between the inserts), The BG split is C2, The New Agro is DC3 (directional backset camber with a dip), Eco Genetics (C2)



Metal Guru (EC2), Street (BTX), Carbon Credit BTX (4), Danny Kass Youth (BTX)



Dirty Pillow (BTX), Danny Kass (XC2), Rider's Choice C2 PBTX, Forest Bailey Space Case (EC2 PBTX), Pickle (PBTX)









The Street is BTX

The beast is cool looking, kind of k2 peacemaker shaped. I was hoping for a tweak to the dirty pillow, longer nose and tail less sidecut.

SHRED HAPPENS

Whats the info of the ride/performance difference between the billy c2 verses the c3? Thinking/wondering increased camber stability and less chatter bombing groomers and less float in deep poo? Am I wrong...any other info...ideas? Hope to demo one this weekend.

More of a traditional feeling cambered ride with the added contact point of the subtle rocker between the bindings. That is there to help you edge in before the full camber is set.

Thanks, I'll try a c3 billy at LBS but can't imagine its that much different than the c2 billy and already have the cambered decks covered. This 2 past weekends getting really comfortable on the 159 c2 billy...its so much fun and did get it to washout on a 40-45 mph hard carve...so having a c3 to perhaps hold an edge better at that speed...oh well I just ride my cambered decks for that.

Does the c3 profile affect turning in any way?

I don't understand why they would reverse the profile? The camber under the feet is supposed to make up for the rocker between the feet.

EDIT--

I love the BG so much I haven't even thought of another board with the exception of a pair of skis! Any excuse to buy a new toy and I'm there!!!!
