Test results Testinfo

Due to the Camber-Rocker-Camber profile, the Beauty is a playful, pretty soft board which you can on even when it gets serious. Precise edgehold under rough conditions, nice float in powder and always agile. Also hassle-free at ascent and that's how a ladies split has to be.

Product description


New to the 14/15 Gnu line-up is the Beauty split, the female partner of the Gnu Beast split. Gnu took it`s sexy shaped directional freeride technology and split it for an exciting new way to harness any wild terrain.

The C3 contour means it’s responsive enough for hard charging and big landings, while the Banana between the feet and Magne-Traction .5 gives it the effortless catch free ease for the ascent or the descent. The Beauty split will help you unlock the magic and make any snow day a fairy tale!

    Super Board beim Aufstieg, Abfahrt leider auf der Piste aber mit dem Board absolut angenehm auch auf eisiger Piste
