Gnu Carbon Credit Asym Snowboard
The GNU Carbon Credit Asym Snowboard, which has been upgraded with the new intuitive ASYM technology, would not only significantly boost your performance on the mountain, but would also reduce your likelihood of becoming fatigued as you ride, and that’s why this board is one of the bestselling snowboards from GNU.
But to really understand what makes this board one of the company’s most successful boards, let us take a look at the following key features that accompany the board:
- Catch-free ride: One of the highlights of the Carbon Credit is the Banana BTX Camber design that it features. This design gives it an exceptionally forgiving and playful flex that saves the rider from catching an edge thanks to the slightly cambered tip and tail of the board and the rocker between the rider’s feet.
- Magne-Traction: Another very important selling point of the Carbon Credit is the Magne-Traction edge that it is engineered with. The serrations of this edge create as many as 7 points of contact along each edge of the board to allow for an outstanding grip (edge hold) even on the iciest of surfaces on any part of the mountain.
- Asymmetrical Side Cut: This feature provides the board a heel side edge that is deeper and shorter to improve the rider’s maneuverability and make tighter heel side turns very easy. The asymmetrical side cut also makes the process of learning to link turns much easier for beginner riders.
- Co-Extruded Base: Some of the admirable attributes of the co-extruded base of the Carbon Credit include its toughness and fastness. Also, the base is easy to maintain and repair.
The above are just some of the key features of the award-winning Carbon Credit snowboard. These features and others are the reasons why the board is considered one of the most useful boards for boosting progression and enhancing performance.
All in all, this board makes snowboarding easier and definitely more interesting and fun.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q. Are all the items in the snowboard package from the same manufacturer?
A. No. There are two companies behind this fabulous package. The GNU Carbon Credit Asym BTX Snowboard is manufactured by GNU Snowboards whose parent company is the famous American snowboard manufacturer, Mervin Manufacturing. The APX boots and bindings, on the other hand, are the products of System.
Q. How does the 2018 GNU Carbon Credit Snowboard butter?
A. The board butters easily thanks to its asymmetrical twin shape.
Q. Is the board good for riding switch?
A. The asymmetrical twin shape of the Carbon Credit makes it one of the best boards for riding switch.
Q. How playful is this board?
A. Its medium to soft flex gives it a great deal of playfulness all over the mountain.
Q. How does this board handle heel side carving?
A. Being an asymmetrical board, the Carbon Credit makes it super easy to turn ‘heel side’. The shorter and deeper heel side sidecut of the board improves your balance and control and makes ‘heel side’ carving just as easy as turning ‘toe side’, thereby making your riding more fun.
Q. How well does it hold an edge?
A. Thanks to its Magne-Traction, it has the ability to hold an edge no matter how icy the conditions are.
Q. How well does the Carbon Credit perform in deep powder?
A. Thanks to the rocker it is engineered with, cruising through deep powder is fun.
Q. What skill abilities are best for the board?
A. The unique thing about the Carbon Credit is the fact that it is great for all ability levels. However, if you are looking for an extremely stiff freeride big mountain board, then this board isn’t what you are looking for.
Q. Where is the Carbon Credit made?
A. It is proudly made in the United States.
