Mervin Hand-Built in the USA
Everyday we face choices, some life changing and others so minuscule, we don't apprehend the choice at hand but in the end, it can make a difference. From day one starting 26 years ago, Mervin has been environmentally aware in the materials and processes they use to manufacture snowboards, which are damn-hand built in the USA. The Gnu Eco choice came to Fruition with a relationship between Gnu and Eco warrior, Nicolas Muller, who respect the mountainous landscapes and accepts the responsibility to protect it. Join the movement and take the first step by leaving no traces on a Gnu Eco Choice snowboard.
Nestled in Seattle, WA Gnu takes the necessary steps to fuse foreign materials and ignite a chemical attraction for dropping steep lines on deep days, in an Eden for progressive trickery and lasting style. EcoUNREAL Manufacturing respects those holy moments and manufactures Nicolas's signature boards, at the world's most EnvironMENTAL Board factory. Hands on production yeilds constant adjustments and improvements, to ensure maximum performance in return for tiny carbon footprints.
Incorporating calculated geometries, Nicolas' TWSnow Good Wood winning Eco Choice, pushes the standards in and environmental awareness. Proven in the elements with the legend himself, the Eco Choice C2 snowboard is handcrafted in harmony with an asymetric shape armed in Magne Traction sidewalls for belly scraping turns. If a day is blessed in snowfalls, Gnu's patented camber/rocker hybrid floats above the thickest froth known to man. A FSC certified wood core lays the firm backbone for certified performance completed with an eco upgrade in non-toxic resins, for the Riders Choice.
Capitalizing on non-petroleum based bio-plastics made from castor beans, and recycled UHMW sidewalls, these decks leave no trace. Gnu has every board in the line hand built in the USA with wind and water generated power meaning, ZERO hazardous waste for Mother Nature and you.
