Gnu Ladies Choice Snowboard : Good Wood 2015
Women’s Park Snowboard Reviews
The go-to for Olympic Gold Medalist Jamie Anderson is a powerful park board ready to stomp everything in its path. The most technically advanced board in Gnu’s line, this asymmetrical twin has a deeper heel-edge sidecut, rocker between the feet, elliptical camber out to the contact points, and Magne-Traction edges. A blend of paulownia, aspen, and Columbian Gold woods make up the core for snappy pop. A powerhouse for progression, the Ladies Choice will have you stomping all season.
Available Sizes: 145.5, 148.5, 151.5, 153.5
“There’s a reason why this is the Ladies Choice. Super fun board, great turns, fun on rails. Good all around park board—I simply loved the flex.”
Good Wood 2015 Snowboard Test Presented by THE-HOUSE.com
How do you pick the board that rides the way you want from the thousands of options out there? The answer: with the Good Wood 2015 Snowboard Test results. This year our 18 testers spent eight days hammering 400 boards through the park and pistes of Winter Park, Colorado. Each of these testers rides a little differently from one another, so there’s something to be said when a board stokes out all who tried it. With the scores tallied for the 16th annual Good Wood, we present the best performing all-mountain and park boards of the year.
How The Boards Are Scored
Shortly after burning some laps on each board, our test crew inputs scores for 18 characteristics that measure the ride on a sliding scale. The park and all-mountain scorecards each have different criteria to pinpoint the strengths and weakness of each snowboard. We don’t cut the boards open and examine the details, but the crew often does break a deck or three. Once the winners are calculated, the testers are long gone, and the cardboard dust has settled from shipping, we package the tester feedback and send it to the brands involved, which they can use to help make better boards.
