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

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Hello!
    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.

  • Michael

    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!

  • Nicholas

    hello,
    I am 147 pounds, 5’9″ (175 cm), I ride mainly all the mountain, trails between trees, I like powder, small to medium jumps, uneven terrain. I avoid groomers.
    I would also like to get better at the park, I didn t have this opportunity before, as my previous board was a camber 155 semiwide (boot 10.5), so I need a very forgiving board that still is a good all-mountain and powder.
    Please tell me what size you suggest me for the space case. And what would be the 2nd best size for me?? (I live in Europe and space case is not always available in every size!)
    thanks, Nicholas

  • John

    Why don’t you have this in wide?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    I don’t think we’ve had too much of a demand for this board as a wide, and because it’s Forest Bailey’s pro model, we build it to his specifications.
    But we do make the Riders Choice, Smart Pickle and Metal Gnuru in wider widths, as well as the Lib Tech Attack Banana..which is a very similar board.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Hi Nicholas,
    The 153 and 156 will be the two best options for you and I think you’ll love either size!
    The 156 will offer more float in powder and stability at high speeds.
    But the 153 will be more nimble and easy to maneuver, particularly in trees and the terrain park.

  • Pablo

    Hi, from Spain. I am 5’6″ and 144. Is the 150 the right size for me? I ride all the mountain
    Thank you.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Hi Pablo,
    Yes! The 150 sounds like the best size for you to ride all over the mountain.

  • Pablo

    Thank you so much. Now I have a magic banana 152 will note the change to much space case. as the case space is smaller and softer be more unstable?

  • Dean Winchester

    Im pretty tall, 6’4 and have size 13 feet. I’ve herd really good things about this board and I dont mind mind riding a shorter board but do you think my feet would be hanging off to much on the 159?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    The flex of the Banana Magic and Space Case will be similar, but they will perform differently.
    The Banana Magic has a really dramatic reverse camber (Banana), and it kicks up a lot at the nose and tail which adds pressure underfoot. The Space Case has a mild camber underfoot, so you may not feel quite as much pressure, but you will still get a lot of pop and snap out of it. You may find that the Space Case feels more stable due to the camber, but the Banana Magic may absorb vibrations better because of the Horsepower construction, which features all basalt fibers with no fiberglass.

    Both boards are extremely fun, and high performance–but they will definitely ride differently.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Hi Dean,
    If you have boots with a reduced footprint, you might be okay…but size 13 boots are generally more suitable for a wide board. I’d recommend comparing the waist width of this to the board you’ve been riding. If it seems like it will be too narrow, check out the Lib Attack Banana. It’s a really similar board, but it is available as a wide.
