Some of the pro-riders that shred with these epic boards include: Travis Rice, Mark Landvik, Jamie Lynn, Forest Bailey, Eric Jackson, Nicolas Müller, Jamie Anderson & many many more!

BANANA TECHNOLOGY - combines mild rockers between your feet with very specific amounts of camber to the contact points. The rocker brings to life the middle of your board that with traditional camber is a low pressure “dead zone”. The cambers out to the tips and tail fine tune the pressure map, add pop, tip and tail stability, precision and control.

Below shows the 3 different types of Banana Tech used in Mervin Made Snowboards: 

Banana Technology

ASYMMETRY - GNU snowboards are built with asymmetric balancing concepts to each side of your snowboard harmonizing with nature and creating a more efficient, less tiring, unreal ride. There are 2 different levels of Asymmetry used in GNU boards.

Level 1: Asymmetric wood core (softer flexing on heelside) & a deeper sidecut on the heelside

Level 2: Same as Level 1 with additional Asymmetric contact angles and length (Shorter heelside contact)


MAGNE-TRACTION® - 7 strategically located edge serrations provide unreal edge hold and control in all conditions. Deepest serrations between the feet, Mild serrations towards the tip and tail & Entry level serrations on the tip and tail. These 'steak knife' like serrations TURN ICE INTO POWDER!!
