 Overview
 

The Velvet Gnuru is consistently a favorite year after year so GNU decided it needed a little upgrade. The 2017 model now features Asymmetrical side cuts for an absolutely unreal all-mountain freestyle ride. With a deeper side cut on your heel side edge you can turn with more power and have precise control which makes for a more efficient, less tiring session. Magne-Traction edge serrations are also asymmetric for even better edge hold on ice and hardpack. The EC2 BTX profile consists of elliptical camber under the feet for response and stability with rocker between the feet for a catch-free, surfy feel. Its full wood core and an Asym Twin shape allow you to pop, flex and practice switch landings all day long; in the park or ripping back bowls, the Velvet Gnuru Asym EC2 BTX is solid and smooth.

Hi I'm Brooke and I just got off the Gnu Velvet Gnuru. I give this board a 4 out of 5 stars. It's for your more advanced girl but an experienced rider would have a lot of fun on this board. It's an all-mountain freestyle so it's got that playful shape, so it's fun to butter around. It's got the magnetraction so it holds an edge really well, especially at high speeds. I felt like it floats and it's pretty fun to ride all over the mountain which is great, but you can still pop off of little jumps if you want. All around I'd give this board a 4 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Jenna, I just got off the Gnu Velvet Gnuru. I'd give this board 4 out of 5 stars. It's a pretty solid mid-level all-mountain freestyle board. What's nice about this board is while it does have EC2 which is camber under the foot and rocker between the bindings, EC2 is a little bit mellower than C2 so it's not a very aggressive profile. It's very accessible to even somebody who is in their frist or second year of riding and just wants kind of a step up from the bottom of the line. But again, a great board for taking some laps through the park but you can take everywhere else on the mountain. And because you've got magnetraction you can still hold a really good edge on it as well. It's also great that it has an asymmetrical sidecut so it's easier to transition your energy to your heels than on a normal board because the sidecut is a little bit tighter. So again, solid level board for a mid-level board.

Hey I'm Kelsey, I just got off of Gnu's Velvet Gnuru. I give this board a 5 out of 5 stars for that all-mountain freestyle board, for that intermediate advanced rider. Um, it's super lightweight, super playful. Spinning, jumps; very comfortable. It's a little bit less aggressive in comparison to the Ladies Choice so if you really like the Ladies Choice but want something that's a little less stiff, this is the board for you. It's got a hybrid rocker profile so both rocker and camber which allows it to be playful, release easy but still put in an edge when you're turning. So I give it a 5 out of 5.
