  • Hubbi

    hi,
    is the Carbon Credit ready-2-ride or should i wax it before first adventure?

  • lea

    hello ! Help me please ! I want to buy a new snowboard for Christmas to my boyfriend. His current snowboard is a 156 but I don’t understand the size difference between a 156 and 156W. Does someone could explain to me the difference ? I know nothing about the sport. My boyfriend is tall (6 feet.) and weighs about 185 lbs. He only loves snowpark. Thanks you ! (I’m french canadiense and i’m not good at all in english so sorry for the spelling mistakes..)

  • Trevor

    He needs the wide version if he is 6 feet tall, its based on his shoe size which is probably a 12 or 13?

  • Lea

    Yes, his shoe size is 12. So it’s 156W ?

  • Trevor

    yes!

  • Lea

    Thanks you so much trevor !

  • Yoan Roseberry Tremblay

    I buy this not long a go its a 162w and im 6 feet tall and 165lbs.
    is this ok for me?!
    (I’m french canadiense and i’m not good at all in english so sorry for the spelling mistakes..) Just like lea ;P

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    We do wax our boards in the factory, which is great for your first couple days on the hill.
    However a nice hot wax will make it even faster, and keep the base protected!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Yoan, I don’t think you will have any trouble riding this board
    It is on the bigger side…but I think anything between 156W and 162W of this board will be good for you.

  • Marco

    Hello my name is Marco from Germany…I liked to buy me a Carbon Credit. What do you think is best for me?? I am 178cm tall, weight 78kg,
    Bootsize 10.

    Thanks for your support.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Marco from Germany! I think you’ll be most satisfied with the 159 or 156.
    The 159 will be awesome absolutely everywhere you could ever dream of riding, and the 156 will be extremely maneuverable and awesome in the park or in tight spaces.

    With size ten boots stick to a standard width board rather than a wide.

  • Vlad Nikulin

    Hello, my name is Vlad! What size of board do you recommend for me? I’m 189 cm tall and 72 kg weight

  • Jack F

    Hi, I am currently riding a 160 snowboard, and I am 6’3″ with size 13 US men’s boot. The waist of my current snowboard is 25.4, and I am experiencing some brutal toe drag on my carving–I am looking at getting the 156W and it has the widest base for its length of many different wide boards I’ve looked at and was wondering if I would still be getting the toe/heel drag? Also do you know of any other boards with a wider base than this one with lengths under 160?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Jack,
    I can’t guarantee you won’t get toe drag without seeing how angled your stance is and how big your boots are–each manufacturer has a slightly different size 13. However, the 26.7cm waist width on this board should definitely accommodate your boots and I don’t think toe drag will be a problem. You may also want to check out the 158W Riders Choice which has a 26.8cm waist. It’s slightly longer, but definitely a more aggressive, high performance board. The Lib Tech Skunk Ape 157 may also be a good option, it has a 26.8cm waist width as well.

  • Jack F

    Awesome! Thanks for the great help, and I will definitely look into getting one of these boards.

  • Florian Redemund

    Hi there, which carbon credit would best for me. I´m 155 pounds, 5ft 11 tall and boot size 9 -10.
    Thanks so far!

  • Marco

    Hi,
    i have another question….which board is better suited in All Mountain riding??? Metall Gnuru or Carbon Credit???

    Best regards
    Marco

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    You will probably want something in the 157-162 range. If your feet are US size 11.5 or bigger you will want to consider a wide board.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Florian, I think the 156 will be prime!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    I think the Metal Gnuru will perform better for all-mountain riding, the elliptical camber underfoot will add stability and pop, but it will still be playful and forgiving.

  • Devon

    hello GNU i currently ride an older model board .. its a 147 and its a gnu carbon high beam. i need somting bigger im 6 FT 170lbs. i like my boards small also what model is the most similar to one i have thanks

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    The Carbon High Beam is now known as the Carbon Credit, so you could definitely go bigger with this board–the 156 could be a nice size; it’s bigger than the 147 you’re currently on, but it will still be nimble and easy to ride.

    You could also check out the Riders Choice or Metal Gnuru; these have camber underfoot, so they will feel more aggressive and tight. The Carbon Credit has more of a loose and playful feel.

  • Eugene

    Hello I wanted to ask which board you would recommend for me. I’m looking for something soft and playful that will be easy to butter with and do some park stuff. If it rides well and stable through groomers and icy conditions that’s a plus as I can venture all over sometimes but will have other board for all mountain riding. Which of you’re boards would be best for this purpose? Also what size? im 5’7″ 135lbs

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Eugene,
    I think either the Carbon Credit or the Smart Pickle will fit the bill for a fun/playful/buttery board. The Magne-Traction will grip onto ice like you won’t believe, and the Banana base contours will allow for a soft, forgiving ride while still offering stability and speeds.

    I think you will be extremely pleased with either the 147 or 150–the 150 will be more stable, while the 147 will be more nimble and maneuverable.

  • C-ROG

    I was wondering what size carbon credit you recommend, I’m 6″2 and weigh 90kilograms with a size 12 US boot.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hey!
    Because you’re a pretty big human I’d recommend the 159 or 162…but go with the wide width!
    With size 12 boots you’ll probably get toe drag on a standard width board.

  • Jay

    I was wondering what size I should go with, I am 164cm, and 58~60kg in weight.
    should I go with 143 or 147?
