When your budding shredder joins the Gnu Kids' Playdate Snowboard for a day at the mountain, it's sure to be one that's filled with rapid progression and smiles for miles. This board features all the same construction characteristics as the full-sized Gnu boards, but in a much more rider-friendly and manageable size. Its asymmetric sidecut offers an incredibly natural and balanced feel that reduces fatigue and improves intuitive performance, while the hybrid rocker profile provides a versatile feel that transitions from groomed corduroy to soft powder without skipping a beat. Starting with an Original Banana profile, which features rocker between the bindings and flat/mild camber out to the tips, this board provides her with a catch-free feel enables easy exploring of the mountain without the constant faceplanting. Then, the asymmetrical shape provides a more efficient, less tiring, unreal ride that caters to her natural stance. The mid-soft flex allows easy edge-to-edge transitions and makes the board forgiving and easy to control for lightweight riders, yet still maintains stability when she picks up speed. Magne-Traction edges help her carve with confidence, even when conditions are icy, and the triax/biax wrap gives her versatile torsional flex that handles a wide range of conditions with ease. Plus, it was all put together in the USA by snowboarders with jobs.
