If you are one of those people who doesn't want to believe the Asym hype, let me reassure you that the hype is real. The construction of the GNU Carbon Credit Asym is a perfect example of how awesome an Asymetrical board can be. Toe side is built with a stronger Poplar wood, the spine of the board is crafted from Aspen, and the heelside is a softer Polownia.This shape and design is anatomically correct for the way our bodies work when shredding. Since our knee's bend toward our toes, we can naturally apply alot more power through a frontside carve compared to backside. Blending the different stiffnesses with a deeper sidecut heelside makes everything come more naturally. BTX construction takes the hard part of snowboarding out of the equation by giving you lots of rocker for jibbing up a storm. Softer flex makes the mountain your playground where you can butter top to bottom with sucking the life out of your legs. After your first lap you will be on Asym train because it's technology you feel instantly and will ultimately make a better rider. The GNU Carbon Credit Asym is priced right without lacking in quality or performance.
The GNU Carbon Credit Asym is an awesome board for new riders who are still getting the fundamentals down and an even better board for riders who love to jIb, bonk, and butter everything they cross.
