Forest Bailey’s Space Case
Twin Asym. Sym. Sync. Freestyle
Forest Bailey’s mind melted with the Gnu designers to create a weird A.S.S freestyle snowboard he calls the Space Case. X Games street champ and Snowboard Mag high ollie winner Forest is a big fan of Banana tech. On the Space Case he has built in EC2 with mild elliptical cambers at each end of his banana foundation for control and pop. Forest has become aware that his body is asymmetric and his turn mechanics are amazingly different from toe side to heels side. To balance nature’s bio-mechanical curiosities Forest adapted his own version of Asymmetrical, Symmetrical Synchronization or A.S.S Technology which includes a shorter heelside contact, deeper heelside sidecut, asym contact angles and shape, and asymmetric core materials and flex. 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. Watch Forest and his board work together in Givin’s new movie.

What is A.S.S and why does Forest love it so much?
Your body is asymmetric your board should be too.
Balance through Asymmetry:
This board is asymmetrically to harmonize with your bodies asymmetries
and balance the difference between your toe and heel side turn mechanics.
More finesse through your toes and precise fingertip like edge control.
Increased angle of edge attack can be achieved through cumulative
articulation of the toe, ankle and knee joints. Balance.
More power through the heels. A lower angle of edge attack and more
power can be achieved due to natural joint mechanics, there is a straight
line from the heel up through your leg to your strongest muscles and
body mass. Stomp.
Forest’s A.S.S seems mind altering strange…but, what it really means
is an easy ride and lots of fun and progression. Ride a Forest SPACE CASE
and you feel the difference for a few turns as your body and mind expect
what snowboarding used to feel like and then your body and board with
synchronize into perfect harmony and you will enter a state we call
imperceptible design perception where new levels of performance and
good times will be realized.
