The Velvet Gnuru is our all terrain freestyle quiver killer. Collecting awards and climbing podiums since its breakout year, the Velvet Gnuru is not about to slow down. Velvet has long been the fabric of the stylishly privileged, now it’s our turn to embrace the stuff of luxury and bring a little royal technology to the snow. We take our award winning, user-friendly EC2 BTX and Magne-Traction, and pack it into a premium freestyle package for any level of rider. Elliptical C2 twin geometries provide pop and stability, Magne-Traction allows for precise edge control, and the Banana between your feet keeps you catch-free and awesome. The Velvet Gnuru is smooth and stylish, like all things velvet, with a technology combination guaranteed to help you make magic all over the mountain.
ART / DESIGN:
Christina Burtner, aka Pika, created this graphic after pouring through fashion mags and 1970’s Playgirls. Ok, well she might not have drawn any direct inspiration from the Playgirls for this board, but no doubt she was inspired after her work on our Early Release Pickle Stallion board. The Velvet Gnuru feels like a stylish resort collection piece from a luxury goods designer… and it is! Pika is a multi-talented artist and contributor to Mervin on many levels.
