The Hyper Carve is Gnu's entry into the piste and pow carving machine category. Blending a powder board nose with a carving inspired mid-section and tail creates a genuinely stunning board that makes you entirely rethink how and where you ride. Designed by Blake Paul and Max Worbington, the Hyper Carve is, without doubt, one of the most fun boards to ride in the line. If you're not into riding park, you really should be on one of these boards, it will make your whole snowboarding experience so much better.

Experienced riders who are looking for a board that will deliver unrivaled performance on the piste and in the pow.

Shape Overview
The Hyper Carve is built around a fully directional shape that features a longer nose profile and short round inverse tail profile. This state of the art shape is designed to deliver the perfect balance of powder board float with the stability and drive of a more freecarve focussed board. That extra volume in the nose gives the board unlimited lift, ensuring that no matter how deep it gets it'll always remain on the surface for an effortless ride. The shorter stiffer tail, really lets you sit out the back end of the turn to power through the carve. Now one of the things that you'll notice when you ride this board is just how solid and stable it is on the edge. This is in part due to the Magne Traction sidecut. This places 7 strategically located edge serrations along the length of the sidecut. These add extra traction points ensuring that you get unrivalled edge hold and control.

As the Hyper Carve is all about powder and piste, Gnu fit it with the C2 hybrid Rocker/Camber profile. This places mild rocker between your feet with powerful cambers to the tip and tail to deliver the perfect balance of power, pop, and precision while enhancing float in deep pow. Also, those aggressive cambers work in perfect harmony with the Magna Traction sidecut to give a stable and confidence inspiring feeling through the turn.

Internally the Hyper Carve utilises Gnu's Unreal G2 construction. This is headed up by the Unreal II wood core which combines poplar and lightweight paulownia to deliver the perfect balance of pop and power without compromising weight and durability. To this Gnu then form their structural layers from a combination of tri-ax and bi-ax glass. This allows the boards designers to dial in the perfect flex through the length with a more responsive torsional flex for when you need increased control and response.

To ensure that the Hyper Carve doesn't waste any of its high performance, Gnu fit it with their sintered base. This fast and tough base material has excellent wax hold and delivers great performance across a broad spectrum of snow conditions.
