the banked country is the ultimate resort shred board for advanced riders who are constantly watching the weather and hoping for loads of powder, but still shred every day no matter what the conditions are. designed by temple cummins and his son cannon, this is a fantastic father-son project. a refined high-performance all-mountain board for progressive riders.
riding style an all-mountain/freeride board for advanced riders. this board is perfect for fast turns on the piste and in the backcountry. it offers plenty of floatation in deep powder and reliable performance and stability in challenging terrain.
shape with the directional shape the nose is slightly longer than the tail. the bindings and the sidecut are slightly offset to the back. this increases the stability at higher speeds and the lift in powder. directional progressive pro magne traction® technology is a combination of a standard sidecut from the nose to the middle of the board and serrated edges from the middle to the tail. this provides a smooth ride at the front of the board and a powerful, grippy edge hold in the tail. similar to the fins of a surfboard.
profile the c3 profile is a classic camber profile with a slight rocker between the bindings. this provides precise edge control from nose to tail and maximum stability for high airs and landings. the mild rocker makes the board a bit more playful and offers more uplift than conventional camber profiles.
flex the stiff flex provides you with absolute running smoothness and stability at high speeds, giving you a precise ride feel and a lot of pop.
construction the g3 lite construction is environmentally friendly, robust and gnu's lightest construction design. the core of aspen and paulownia wood is very light, sustainable, robust and poppy. bi- and triaxial fibreglass surrounds the wood core and provides the necessary stiffness and durability. the eco sublimated polytopsheet is sustainably produced. the sintered base is very fast and stays that way if you take good care of it.
