Forest Bailey is enlightened. He has taken note that all people are asymmetrical from front to back and that a snowboarder’s turn mechanics are galactically different from toe side to heel side. Working with the Gnu weird science team, Forest has developed his own mind freeing snowboard he calls the SPACE CASE that incorporates Forest’s favorite bio mechanical balancing design concepts to harmonize and maximize human potential.

Points of Pickle

  • Asymmetric Contact Angles Shorter Heel Side Edge Contact
  • Deeper Heel Side Sidecut
  • Asym “Pickle Barrel” Core, Softer Heel Side Flex
  • Forest’s Asymmetric Tip And Tail Shapes

Forest’s personal A.S.S tech is combined with incredibly versatile EC2 Banana camber combination contours and incredibly strong Liquid Crystal Polymer space fibers. All this weird science sounds complicated and mysterious and it is but the end result is a board that is incredibly fun and naturally easy to ride. Get your A.S.S in space!

    Hi Adri,
    The Space Case 147 would be a really awesome option!
    The EC2 base contour is the perfect blend of playful and aggressive, making it an extremely versatile board.
    But you could also scope out the Carbon Credit, it will have more of a loose and forgiving feel than the Space Case due to the Banana (BTX) base contour.

  • Greg

    I have an 11.5 boot, 6′ 165lbs and ride the 156 space case and i have never had any toe drag, even leaning into some big carves. I would think you would be fine, my boots aren’t reduced footprint i don’t think

  • B

    Hi there! Looking for a board and could use some advice. I’m 5’3 about 135lb. and I am a beginner beginner. Was looking at the carbon credit but was concerned about the length(152 being the smallest) might be too big. Also was thinking that as I progress I may want the ec2 BTX(as with the space case) contour as apposed to the BTX( carbon credit). Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  • B

    Sorry an edit to previous post.
    Was looking at carbon credit at first but was thinking I may rather have the ec2 btx profile as apposed to the btx. Then was looking at metal gnuru but was concerned the smallest size(152) might be too big. Maybe space case??? Thanks

    As a beginner, you probably won’t notice too much of a difference between our different base contours. As you progress I think the EC2 will feel more versatile and offer a bit more stability and control. But as a beginner, the BTX of the Carbon Credit will feel more forgiving and easier to learn with. At 5’3″ and 135 lbs, I think a 147 sounds like the correct size, so this narrows it down the Space Case and the Carbon Credit.

    Between those two boards, I would probably suggest the Carbon Credit!
    The Space Case is a phenomenal board and a nice step up in performance, but as you learn to snowboard, you probably won’t feel much of a difference in the technology.

    I’m looking for a twin freestyle board mostly for buttering/flatland
    tricks on groomers. I would like some carving and some park ability too
    though. Would this be the best board for that setup? I’ve also been looking at
    Carbon Credit, Rider’s Choice, Smart Pickle, Skate Banana.

  • Andrea Orlando

    Hi.i have a question about this board and the smart pickle. My weight is 90kg and 186 cm tall.i like snowboard all muntain, backcountry and park.which board is good for me?

  • Andrea Orlando

    Sorry i forgot. I am an intermediat rider

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    The Space Case 159 or Riders Choice 161.5 would probably be my top to recommendations.
    The Space Case will feel more playful and forgiving, and it will really excel in the park.
    The Riders Choice will feel more powerful and aggressive, and it will excel at high speeds and in more advanced terrain.

  • Andrea Orlando

    Thank you for your answer.just another question,my sizeis 11,5-12 what about a rc 158w

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Yes! A wide board will be more suitable for boots size 11 or bigger.

  • Andrea Orlando

    Sorry Last question not about gnu for your experience. Which are the best boots to have a minimal footprint

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    I’d recommend checking out boots in person and seeing what fits you best!
