Mount up the limited edish GNU x evo Hyperkyarve Snowboard and throw the mountain into a headlock like your name is John Cena. This special collaboration not only brings swift justice to backcountry lines but can also dominate everything the resort has to offer — and we’re stoked to have played a part in it. A slightly setback stance and taper in the nose and tail absolutely slays fluffy conditions due to it’s supreme handling in the deep while it’s C2X profile and medium-stiff flex gives it a firm feel that can really pop rollers and wind lips. Simply a dream for riders seeking ultra-buttery flow and poster-worthy methods, calling it the “hypercarve” simply wasn’t enough. Thus, we present to you the GNU x evo Hyperkyarve Snowboard, because kyarving is the future. Featuring custom art from evo’s own Ryan Toth.
