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 im looking for the space case for park use and allmtn use im 200lb 6.1″
    Which size to pick 156or 159
    Thx

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    I’m thinkin the 159.
    But before I give you an answer–What size are your boots?!

  • JFill

    How does this board do in the powder? I love the park side aspect but can you use it on powder days too?

  • keak

    The ec2 btx is an awesome board profile for riding powder! If your still hesitant, size up a few cm than you would normally ride and slay both the park and the deep stuff.

  • Mayan

    The boots size are 10.5
    And I’m riding 80% park
    Thx

    Hi.. I´m going to buy a Space Case. The use would be park/all mountain and I’m 154 lbs and 5.9″. What size should I get?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    If you’re spending way more time in the park than the rest of the hill, then the 156 will definitely be more suitable!
    But it will be more of a challenge to stay afloat in deeper snow.

  • SK

    I’m riding an old riders choice 154.4 , the first year with mag and thinking of upgrading. I’m a size 9 boot and about 165lb. I spend my time at Mountain Creek in the park and slashing around. I get a few trips in to VT every year but don’t see a lot of deeper stuff. Should I go 151.5 or 154.5?

  • Daburai609

    Coming from another NJ shredder, this board is the tits. I rode NJ, PA, and UT on it last season. I’d say go for the 154 since it’s light as hell anyway and it’ll hold an edge better for when you’re slashing around.
