Impossible A.S.S. Pickle

$799.95 USD

Your body is Asymmetric your snowboard should be too!

The Gnu A.S.S. technicians have incorporated revolutionary balancing design concepts into the award winning Impossible. Your body is asymmetric and your turn mechanics are vastly different from toe side to heel side. The Impossible features a deeper heel-side sidecut, shorter heel-side contact, asym. contact angles and shape and asym core materials and flex. We have combined this Asym. Sym. Synchronization with EC2 Banana camber combination contours and incredible material technology including ultralight and strong Magnesium fibers and Bio Beans top material. The end result is a board that naturally works with you to easily achieve what ever you can imagine. Perfect for duck freestyle stances. Nothing is impossible! Balance through Asymmetry!

Tech Talk

Anatomical oddities:
Your body is asymmetric heel to toe your board should be too.

Balance through Asymmetry:
This board is designed to work with your body’s natural asymmetries…balancing your toe and heelside playing into the strengths of each sides mechanics to enhance control and performance.

Toe side:
More finesse through your toes and precise fingertip like edge control. Increased angle of edge attack can be achieved through cumulative articulation of toe, ankle and knee joints. Balance.

Heelside:
More power through the heels. A lower angle of edge attack and more power can be achieved due to natural joint mechanics. Stomp.

Minimal adaptation:
The Impossible A.S.S. pickle is ergonomically designed around your natural kinesiology so you don’t have to adapt mentally or physically to use it. Intuition and a dream is all you need.

Imperceptible Perfection:
Initially A.S.S. seems mind alteringly weird…but what it really means is an easy ride and lots of fun. Ride an A.S.S Pickle and you will feel a difference for the first few turns as your body and mind expect what snowboarding used to feel like and then your body and board will synchronize into perfect harmony and you will achieve a state we call imperceptible design perfection and new levels of joy and performance will be realized.
