  • Pablo

    Hi Gnu, I’m 5′ 6″ and weigh about 150 lbs, size 8 boots. Is the Space Case 150 the right size for me? I ride all mountain no park

  • GNU

    I’d probably steer you towards the 153.

  • Shea Butta

    With size 11 boots have too much toe hang off this board ? I’ve been riding wide but feel like I’m missing out on flex because of it , could I get away with a normal width ?

  • GNU

    Hi Shea,
    Size 11 boots are really right on the verge of needing a wide board!
    If you have a boot with a compact, or reduced footprint (Burton and Solomon, for example) and a fairly angled stance you will probably be okay with a standard width board. But if you have pretty chunky boots (some 32 boots and Vans, for example) and not much angle on your stance you will be at risk for toe drag.

    I would recommend comparing the waist width of the boards(s) you’ve been riding to try and gauge if the Space Case will be suitable for you. You could also visit your local shop and scope it out in person with your boots.

  • Shea Butta

    Thanks for the input , , I have the ride boa system boot with a reduced foot print and my stance is pretty angled for the front and slightly in the rear , I guess I’ll just have to go to a shop it just sucks there’s none around anymore with a big selection where I live so it’s it’s a pain

  • GNU

    Understandable–another option is to just check out a board with similar dimensions.
    Not necessarily the Space Case, but any board with a similar waist width and sidecut.

    Though the Space Case is one of our best selling models, so you it should be an easier one to track down at a shop!

  • Shea Butta

    Ok ok, and what about weight wise I’m about 170, I ride half park and half free ride , .. And I think I might just go for the reg width this year

  • Shea Butta

    Oh right .. I meant to
    Add what length board I should get , 5″11 170lb, thanks

  • GNU

    The 156 will offer the most versatility, but again, I would use your past/current board sizes as a guide!

  • Pablo

    The 150 is a wrong mesure for me? the table is something different than last year? Last year I recommended the 150

  • Shea Butta

    Thanks for your help buddy

  • GNU

    Maybe you gave a slightly different description of your riding last year–you could easily ride the 150, but if you’re not spending any time in the park the 153 will be a better option for you.

  • Pablo

    Ok, thank you so much

  • Shea Butta

    How’s this board compare to the headspace as far as playfulness? I see the headspace is captioned as easy/jibby vs eaSy perfect? What’s the difference and is the spade case still a easy jibby board ?

  • GNU

    Hi Shea,
    Both boards have Banana (rocker) between the feet, but the Space Case also has camber underfoot–the Headspace has a flatter contour underfoot. The Space Case will have a more poppy, powerful and sturdy feel because of the camber. The Head Space on the other hand will feel more loose, jibby, easy and forgiving.

  • Gary Chesters

    Hi guys, what would you say is a max boot size on a space case 156 . 15 on the front binding 12 to 15 on the back (angles ) for a problem free ride . Thanks Gary

  • GNU

    Hi Gary,
    All boots vary in size and all bindings have different base thicknesses, so it’s almost impossible to say with certainty the maximum boot size for a board! I would recommend checking the board out in person with your boots, if possible! And definitely comparing the waist width of the board(s) you’ve ridden in the past with the 156 Space Case (25.5cm)

  • Gary Chesters

    Thank you for getting back to me.

    I have a medium binding and a burton imperial boot. I would find it tricky with other boards as I have never had an asymmetric board before. My boot size is 11US but I can get into a 10.5 at a push. So with that said, if it’s hard to say with certainty what would be your recommendation for a boot size you know of that has no trouble with this particular board type ? and what would be a max boot over hang for this board to you knowledge.

    Thank you again for your time.

  • GNU

    Hi Gary,
    Burton boots tend to have a reduced footprint, so there’s a good chance you wouldn’t experience toe drag on the 156 with size 11 boots, particularly if your stance is fairly angled and you use a medium binding.You should compare waist widths of boards you’ve ridden without issue in the past to the waist widths on our boards. Or go look at the boards in your local shop–it’s a lot easier to determine what will work best for you if you can have your board, boots and bindings together at the same time.

  • Gary Chesters

    Thank’s guys. I have just bought a space case 2016 and it sweet !!!! one last question, what would you recommend is a good overhang on this board toe and heel in cm/inches for a problem free ride, well as good as I can get anyway. Thank’s again guys :-)

  • dan

    Love the spacecase. I’ve got the older one, but I really like the slick look of the newer model

  • David

    Hi guys, I am considering to make the space case my new board. I intend use 70% in park and 30% all mountain but I can’t make up my mind about size. I am 195b. Do you think a 156 will do or a 159 would be a better pick? If I were occasionally to use during the day the 156 in powder how do you think it will be? Thanks!!!

  • Tristan

    hey i was wondering when you guys were getting the space case in a 150, so i can order it

  • GNU

    Thanks for the kind words, we appreciate your support!

  • GNU

    We’re building more boards daily, so keep checking back!
    You could also support your local shop and buy the board through them–we have shipped products to a lot of retailers already, and getting boards to our shops is our number one priority! So that can be more efficient that waiting for us to have them available online.

  • GNU

    For riding park the majority of the time, I think you will be more satisfied the 156!
    It won’t perform as spectacularly in powder as a 159, but you’ll still have a blast…though your back leg might get a little tired.

  • GNU

    Again, that varies for everyone!
    If you’re making deep euro carves with your stomach grazing the snow, you probably don’t want much overhang!
    But a slight amount probably won’t affect you.

  • Wesley

    Hello, I was wondering what major changes were made to the new 2015-2016 space case board in comparison to my 2013 model? I’m thinking of getting a new board this season and from my previous experience with the space case, it has been terrific. That’s why I wanted to ask.

  • Pablo

    GNU hello. you might find a case Space 153 last year?

  • GNU

    I think we’ve made some slight changes to blend of woods we used the core, but aside from that, the biggest change is the graphic.

  • Wesley

    Ah ok, so all the features listed on the 2016 board is also on my 2013 board too?

  • James

    Hello, I am 5’10, 135 lb. I have been contemplating between the 153 and 156 cm boards but can’t really make a decision. I mostly ride all mountain(70%, trees, groomed, powder….etc) but this year i want to try some jumps and tricks in the park for the first time(30%?). Knowing nothing about a snowboard, I purchased a 164 cm board which got me around last year but felt too long when doing turns (so referring to my current board may be a problem since it doesn’t fit me). I was more lenient towards the space case 153 since it may be easier to do tricks since it’s shorter but here in Niseko, it is also known for its powder. I also like to spend a lot of time in gates/trees (off course) where there is deep powder and the need to do tight and fast turns. My boot size is around a 10-10.5 burton imprint boots like the ruler or moto but am thinking of buying an ambush. Thus, it would be light as well as having the shrink tech. What would hold the best experience for an all mountain and freestyle? A 153 or 156 board?

  • GNU

    We don’t have inventory for previous season’s boards, but you may be able to find one with an online retailer or at your local shop.

  • GNU

    I believe so, except for a slightly different core blend and the asym contact angles.
    So there are some minor updates and a new board will have more life and pop in it than an old one…but it will still be the Space Case you know and love!

  • GNU

    Hi James, I would suggest the 156.
    it sounds like you’ll be spending a lot of time in natural terrain, deep snow and groomers and the 156 will definitely perform better in these situations…but it will still be playful and maneuverable for the park!

    The 153 will probably feel a bit squirrely, particularly at high speeds. And it won’t offer as much float in powder.

  • Dom

    Hey, been very interested in this board. I currently have a gnu gateway. Im 5’8 about 190 should i go for the 156 or 159? I currently ride a 156

  • Chad Harris

    hey i was wondering if you guys had a 157 wide Spacecase? im going to buy a board here in a week.

  • GNU

    We don’t make this one in a wide, so if your feet are bigger than 11, you should consider the 158mw Metal Gnuru or the 156W Lib Tech Attack Banana.

  • GNU

    156 will be money! And it’s a great step up in performance from the Gateway, you’re going to love it.

  • Billy Maciolek

    The gnu space case and lib tech box scratcher, I only see that the space case has elpited camber which the lib tech has a mild camber(and a 4.5 to 5 flex rating). Whats the real difference between these two snowboards. (i’m 5’10” 130 pounds intermediate and spend 95% in the park)

  • Pawel

    OK so I’am 6’3″ and around 205-210lbs advanced rider (15+ seasons) with feet size 10,5-11. Riding would be 40% park (mostly small and medium kickers with some easier boxes and rails as well, just starting in pipe), 40% slope freestyle (ton of switch, some rotations, some pressess and generally fooling around) and about 20% of powder in wild. Can I really do it all with that one board (I always thought I need at least 2). And can I stay with 156 or because of my weight and that powder riding I should get 159?

  • Billy Maciolek

    5’10-11 with size 11.5 nike mid-narrow boots(vapen) can I get away with a board like this or should I go wider

  • GNU

    That’s a really tough call, generally 11.5 boots are better suited with a wide board, so you might want to check out the Metal Gnuru or Lib Tech Attack Banana if you’re interest in an EC2 base contour. Or even the Gnu Riders Choice for a more aggressive/powerful ride!

    But if you have a very angled and/or wide stance, you might be able to sneak by on the Space Case. It might be worth checking out at your local shop, or at the very least comparing the waist width the boards you’ve ridden without toe drag in the past.

  • GNU

    I think the 159 will be more suitable for you–the 156 might feel a little bit more noodley than you like, and it won’t offer as much float in powder, or edge hold.

  • Matt

    Hey, I’m thinking about getting the new space case. I am 5’11 180 lbs so I’m going to go with the 156. My problem is that my boot size is an 11.5. Do you think I can still pull it off? I like to ride with a pretty wide stance. Thanks

  • brock

    What board would be better for mainly jibbing the headspace or the space case? Both boards look very similar space case lighter but bigger camber areas I’m just wondering which would be better for mainly jibbing but still can jump as well

  • johnny

    Considering a trade to the 156 Space Case From an older 157 Banana Magic. I’m 5’11 195 pounds 10.5 boots. Mostly All mountain freestyle, light park and Jibs for days. . Do you think this is a wise choice or can you suggest a better alternative? Not looking for a noodle and give the B-magic a 10 out of 10 best.

  • Ryan Tibari

    Hello, I’m about 5’10” and 143 pounds. I’m an advanced all mountain rider but intermediate in the park. I’m looking for a mid stiff, but poppy board to be good for the park. Do you think this would be a good board for me? If so should I go with 153 or 156? Thanks a lot!

  • GNU

    Hi Matt,
    11.5 boots will definitely be cutting it close! You could be safe with a wide and angled stance, but I would HIGHLY recommend checking the board out in person. Or at the very least bringing comparing the waist width of the 156 (25.5cm) to boards that you’ve ridden without issue in the past

    Keep in mind this board has a pretty generous sidecut at 8.3/8 meters (because of the asymmetry) so a wider stance will certainly aid in reducing the possibility of toe drag.

  • Epp

    hi Gnu

    I am 61 kg and 168cm, do you recommend the space case in 150 or 153 for an all-around activity. Will 153 be still playful and not too stiff?
