The GNU Carbon Credit has been called “The Perfect Snowboard.” While I disagree because of my love for the Rider Choice. I can definitely see what these people are talking about.
The Carbon Credit is easily one of the most chill snowboards that you can ride. It can be ridden anywhere, and it’ll excel wherever it goes.
Technically it’s classified as an all mountain snowboard, however it ranks extremely high in park riding (see jumps, jibbing, and pipe rating below). The going price is around $419 (at the time of this writing, so they’re not on the expensive side)
If you’re a shredder who goes where the snow takes them, this is an excellent board that you should add to your quiver.
GNU Carbon Credit Overall Rating:
- Deep Powder Shredding: 4

- Carving Experience: 3.5
- Speed: 3
- Switch Riding: 2
- Pipe: 3.5
- Jibbing: 3.5
The GNU Carbon Credit Snowboard is a jack of all trades type of snowboard. While it’s classified as an all mountain board, you can really ride it anywhere. It has a softer flex rating which gives it an easier learning curve. This means beginners will love this snowboard, as there’s more room for edge mistakes.

The board has a balance of soft flex and stiffness so it can ride anywhere. It’s solid all around.
Where The GNU Carbon Credit Excels:
I feel like I’ve already answered this question, however I’ll do a bit of review. This GNU snowboard will excel anywhere you go on the mountain. It’s a solid all mountain board, and it’s got enough softness that you can tear it up in the park. In addition to that, give it a set back stance on a powder day, and shred the deep powder.
This is definitely a snowboard I’d love to add into my rotation, however I do feel like my riders choice is a better option for where I shred. However if you spend part of your time in the park, and you like to hit other areas up. This could be the right board for you.
