Velvet Gnuru


The Velvet Gnuru is the all terrain freestyle quiver killer. Collecting awards and climbing podiums since its breakout year, it is not about to slow down. Velvet has long been the fabric of the stylishly privileged, now it is 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.
