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."
