This is going to be a quick overview of all the 2020 GNU snowboards.
First I will highlight any new boards for the 2019-20 season, and any old 2019 boards that are dropping out.
Then I'll take a look at each board and put them into the categories where I see them fitting.

Outgoing 2019 GNU Snowboards
The 2019 boards that aren't returning with a 2020 model:
All 2020 GNU Snowboards by Category
GNU's 2019-20 boards have been categorized below. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily labelled the same as what GNU themselves labels them as.
Of course these are only broad categories as every board is different, but this is a rough guide.
GNU BEGINNER SNOWBOARDS
GNU PARK/FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
GNU ALL-MOUNTAIN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
GNU AGGRESSIVE ALL-MTN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
GNU ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
*No GNU boards match my definition for this category
GNU AGGRESSIVE ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
GNU FREERIDE SNOWBOARDS
GNU POWDER & SHORT/WIDE SNOWBOARDS
GNU YOUTH SNOWBOARDS
So there you have the 2020 GNU snowboards.
One shift in the GNU line is the move to a more camber (C3 camber) dominant line. This is the trend for a few snowboard brands at the moment.
Although this is actually more subtle than it looks. Even though 4 of the new boards to come in are C3 camber, 3 of those to drop out were also C3 camber. So there is only essentially a difference of 1. A slightly higher ratio of C3 camber.
Are any GNU boards on your radar? Any of the new offerings? Feel free to leave a comment or question in the comments section below.
