Gnu B-Nice ($399)

This mellow-riding, Banana Tech reverse camber deck has claimed four Good Wood wins in a row! It has twin geometry, but features a slightly longer nose than tail to help out on those days when it dumps. The sidewalls are beefed up with strips of hard birch wood to hold up to abuse, while the fast base is nearly maintenance free. One word: nice.

Sizes: 145, 148, 151, 154

Tester Feedback:

“Easy to butter, spin, press, and just snowboard in general. Get ready to get loose!”
