  • 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
