The B Nice is designed with the nicest ingredients, the nicest graphics, and the nicest intentions to make any day on the snow a nice day! Don’t be fooled though, nice boards can get rowdy with the best of them! The B Nice with classic twin freestyle Banana has a softer flex to make it catch free and loose for beginners or experienced riders. Magne-Traction edges make turning easier, and edge control effortless. The B Nice has that special kind of magic that keeps you out of trouble and looking nice, even when the conditions get mean out there.

  • Inna

    Hi, could you please help me with the size; this is my first board and i am goimg to continue learning; i took b-nice 142 and now i am afraid it is too short for me… I am 160 sm, 52-54 kg. I still have a chance of changing it, should i?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Inna,
    A 142 sounds like the perfect size for you!
    It will be easy to maneuver and learn with, but still big enough to be stable and sturdy,

  • Inna

    Oh, ok! I’ve worried a lot about it recently; thank you so much!

  • Stacy

    I too have a similar question! I am trying to decide if I should get the 142 or the 145 cm. I am 5’5″, 114lbs, and I wear a size 8 boot. Is there a big difference between the two sizes?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Stacy,
    The 145 would more suitable than the 142, but I would honestly recommend going for the 148–I think it will be the best size for you!

  • Stacy

    Will do! Thanks a lot for your suggestion! I appreciate it!

  • alissa

    I’m 5’3″ and 130 pounds and a beginner – would the 142 be best for me?

  • Beza

    hey guys! what would be the perfect size for me? I am 157cm, 55-57kg, and I wear size 5.5 boot? I was thinking about 142?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    I’d probably point you towards a 145 rather than a 142.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    I really wouldn’t recommend going any smaller than the 145.
    And I think the 148 will be the best board for you.

  • Nina

    Hi! I am also looking for best fit for me, could anybody help me with it? I am 121 lbs and 5’2″?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    The 145 will be the best, most versatile size for you!
    You could also ride the 142, and it will be very maneuverable and jib-friendly, but may lack some stability at higher speeds.

  • PZ

    Hello, I’m looking for a board for my girlfriend (5’1 – 104 pounds). She is still a beginner and looking to gain confidence, but also wants a board that can progress with her and last a couple of seasons. She’ll mainly use it in groomers and the occasional powder, not much of a park rider. My first choice is the B-Nice 139 however I’m also looking at the Velvet Gnuru, which one would you guys recommend? Tks!

  • Z

    Hey, here’s another ohne Lockung for the right size. My girlfriend is 5’5 tall and weighs 121 pounds. Her last board was 146cm and she’s an intermediate rider…what do you think?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    I think a 139 sounds like the perfect size for her to learn and progress on.
    The B-Nice is our most forgiving and user-friendly board, so it’s a great option for beginners and intermediate/advanced riders who like a playful board.
    The Gnuru will feel a bit more powerful and aggressive, but I tend to think that the EC2 base contour (Banana with elliptical camber underfoot) is more versatile for riding anywhere on the mountain.

    Either board (and pretty much any snowboard!) will perform beautifully on groomers, and both will be easy to float through powder on–they will both just have different feels. I’d recommend having her check them both out in a shop, just standing on the boards will give her a feel for BTX as opposed to EC2.

  • Peter

    Hi, my girlfriend is 5’0 tall and weights 108 pounds. She likes all-mountain riding with occasional pow-fun (so no park riding/jumping at all).
    Is the B-Nice 139cm suitable for her, or should she go with a Smart Mini Pickle 130cm?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    That really depends on where she’s riding!
    If she’s spending time jibbing in the park, I’d recommend staying on a 145-146.
    But if she wants a versatile board that will be awesome to ride everywhere, size up a bit…I think something in the 147-149 range will be really solid for her.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    The 139 B-Nice will be a much more suitable size for a 5 foot tall lady.
    Not only in length, but the waist width will also be better for her, as well as a stiffer, yet still fun and forgiving flex pattern.

  • Crystal

    Hey I just won this board in the 150 size and im worried about the waist width I wear a mens 10.5 boot or womens 12 do you think that it will not be wide enough?

  • Julia

    I live in the Denver area and I’m super interested in demo-ing this board in a 139. Are there any shops near Denver or up in the mountains (I have the epic local and a copper 4-pack) where I can demo this?

  • kate

    I’m 158cm and 48kg, would 142 fit me for a first board that would last at least 3 seasons?

  • jenn

    Hi I just bought the bnice 148. I’m 5’7″ &weigh 123. I’m intermediate-advanced. No park riding. Mostly tree riding & i love bombing down long runs. I hope i did good in picking the right board.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    This sounds like the perfect board to learn and progress on, you’re going to love it!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Yes, absolutely
    It’s a fantastic board to learn on, but you’ll still have a blast on it as you reach intermediate/advanced riding levels.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Crystal,
    You may be more satisfied with a smaller men’s board with size 12 boots–women’s boards are a lot narrower, and you may experience toe drag with this. You may like the Gnu Carbon Credit 150, Gnu Smart Pickle 150, Lib Tech Skate Banana 149, or Lib Tech Box Scratcher 151. They will all have similar shapes and specs, but you won’t have to risk your toes hanging over the edge of the board.

  • Dan

    Hey, I’m looking to get a board for my wife to learn to ride with now that our boys are learning to ride with me. She is 5’10”, about 150lbs and wears a women’s size 9.5 boot. I was thinking of getting a size 151 of the B-Nice for her. Do you think this would an appropriate size?

  • Allie C

    Hey! I’ve been riding Burton Progression 142 (rental). I’m 5’2″ and 140 lbs. Should I stick with a 142 for this board?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Yeah 142 sounds like a perfect size for you to progress on!
    You’ll looooooove the B-Nice
    It’s definitely a huge step up from rental boards, but still extremely easy to ride…and way more fun!

  • Allie C

    Thanks so much! I’m pumped!

  • Katie

    About to buy B-nice as my first board. I’m a beginner (ride mostly on green trails, sometimes on easy blue trails. No park riding/jumping.). What’s the right size for me? 145? 148? I’m 5’5″, 135-140 lbs, wear women’s boots size 8. Please help. Thx!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Go for the 148!
    The 145 might feel a bit easier to learn and progress with, but I think that ultimately, you’ll really appreciate the extra length and stability.

  • nic

    Hey, I ride a 143 but I want to progress to a bigger board after 3 years… I am 5’4 and 110 pounds. Riding alot of powder, what size should I go for?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    For a lot of powder, probably something in the 147-149 range.
    You may also want to consider a board with some camber underfoot, because it will feel more aggressive and sturdy!
    Check out the Velvet Gnuru, B-Classy and Ladies Choice!

  • Rachel

    Hi there – I’m 5’10” and 140lb with a US size 7 boot. I’m looking at buying the 151; but I’m never sure whether the height or the weight is more important. I’m in the UK and mostly ride on piste in the Alps and looking for a more flexible, fun and forgiving board than my existing one. Thanks!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Hi Rachel,

    Based on your height, weight, boot size and where you want to ride, I think the 151 sounds perfect for you!

  • Regina

    Not to jump on the sizing bandwagon, but I’m in a bit of a pickle. I’m also 5’2″, but closer to 110-115 lbs. I’m an intermediate rider (avoid the parks, but love getting lost in the trees, fresh powder, and a challenging backside of the mountain run). I’m really torn between the 142 (easier to maneuver) and 145 (stability with speed). Any suggestions!? Thank you!

  • Amy

    Hi I’ve ordered the gnu nice but I’m a but concerned about the weight of the board. I’ve read some reviews that have said it’s on the heavier side so I’m quite nervous about that. I prefer a lighter or average weight board since I’m on the more petite side (5’2 115lbs). Will the weight be ok for me or will I really feel the weight difference on my feet ?

  • Amy

    I also purchased the 139 is that a bit too small? Should I have went for the 142? Or 144?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Regina!
    If you’re not riding park and you’re spending lots of time in fresh snow and natural terrain, I’d probably steer you towards the 145.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Hi Amy,
    Gnu boards are all super light.
    We build them with our own two hands using high-quality materials…I don’t think you’ll find it to be heavy, especially the 139!
    I probably would have recommended the 142 for maximum versatility, but you will definitely still be able to have fun on something smaller! The 139 may lack some stability, though.

  • Addie

    I am 5 feet exactly and only weigh about 95 pounds. I got this board in February, also a 139, and rode it on ice and nice powder days and it was amazing! I ride everyday (I’m an instructor) so I need something that isn’t too heavy and it was surprisingly lighter than I thought it was going to be. I definitely felt less tired at the end of a week using this board rather than my other one which was a Burton Hero, and a 141. I’m so happy I switched to GNU, I went through two Burton boards because of delam in a matter of two months, I won’t go back to them for boards.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Thanks so much for all of the kind words Addie–stoked to hear that you’re loving your B-Nice!

  • Laura

    Hi, I’m interested in buying the board in size 151. I’m 5’11” and 130lb. Boot size MP 28.5. I’m wondering if the waist is too small for my shoe size? Thank you!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Hi Laura,
    Mondopoint 28.5 is equal to a women’s US 11.5–which makes me think this board might be a bit narrow for you.
    You could consider sizing up to the 154 and you’ll get an extra centimeter of waist width, or you could also consider a men’s board as they are generally wider to accommodate bigger boots.

    The Gnu Carbon credit or the Lib Tech Skate Banana are both VERY similar to the B-Nice.

    But I would also strongly urge you to check the boards out in person, if you have a chance! Or at the very least compare the waist widths to the board you’ve been riding to make sure your feet will have enough room.
