GNU Velvet Guru

New to Gnu’s line, the twin, all-mountain Velvet Guru is the first time the EC2 blend—rocker between the feet and elliptical camber at the tips—has been used in the women’s line. Elliptical camber brings the peak of the camber closer to the feet for more even pressure distribution and better pop. Magne-Traction edges add more contact points for ease of turns and stability all around, but the softer flex keeps it fun. Welcome to the jungle, baby.

Price: $449

Category: All Mountain

Sizes: 143, 147, 150, 153

Tester Feedback: “Super stable and feels comfortable taking big lines and making big turns. Made for a more aggressive rider.”
