  • Bill

    Or is there a better gnu snowboard choice?

  • GNU

    For a fun, poppy, playful and forgiving park board I think you will be super pleased with our EC2 base contour!
    So the Metal Gnuru is reallllly solid option, but you may also want to check out the Space Case.

  • nick

    Hello, I want to get this board but i don’t know what size to get, I am 1,65 m (5,41 foot ), I’m using size 7us size boots and I weight 66 kg. help me, please, i don’t know what size to get

  • GNU

    Hi Nick,
    I think you have asked this question on most of our boards–you’ll want to go with about the same size for all of them.
    A 152 would be the best option for the Metal Gnuru.

  • nikolas

    )))

  • Nick

    Hi! I need your advice. I don’t know what size should I choose Gnuru.
    My height – 176 cm
    My weight – 66 kg.
    Foot size EU 42.5
    Thank u!

  • GNU

    155 or 158.
    The 155 will feel more playful and nimble, the 158 will feel more stable and powerful.

  • Nick

    Good) I want all-mountain size)) And one more question – 155 waist width will be normal for my foot size?

  • GNU

    Yes.

  • Tanner Wilson

    i am 5’10” and weigh around 140-150 and have a shoe size of 9.5-10. i am leaning towards the 155. what size would you suggest?

  • Tanner Wilson

    sorry my boot size is 10-10.5

  • GNU

    Hi Tanner,
    I just spoke with you on the phone, but the 155 sounds like it will be PRIME for you for riding all over the mountain.
    Size 10-10.5 boots will work just fine with a standard width board.

  • George Sampley

    Hi, if I’m 185lbs and 6’0″, what size would you recommend? I kind of prefer a smaller board for more maneuverability, but I would like a professional opinion.

  • GNU

    I don’t think you’d have any issues on the 155, but I wouldn’t recommend going any smaller than that!

  • Kelson

    Hey GNU, I am a 165lb, 6’2″ intermediate rider with size 11 boots. Previously rode a 164W board. It was nice for powder and stable at high speeds. But I’m looking to downsize for better maneuverability and less weight for ollies. I want to move more into the park scene but still be able to surf the powder when I feel like it. What board and sizing would you recommend?

  • GNU

    Hi Kelson,
    At 165 lbs and size 11 boots I think you could definitely get by riding a smaller board, even though you’re 6’2.
    I’d probably suggest something in the 158-160 range.
    The Metal Gnuru is a suuuuper solid option and is definitely one of the most versatile boards in our line–it will be easy and fun to ride absolutely anywhere. You may also like the Riders Choice in 158W, which will have a more powerful/aggressive feel due to the added camber underfoot.

  • Kelson

    Awesome, thanks for the advice!

  • alexxthemighty

    I live on the East coast so I ride on a lot of ice. My last board was the Lib Tech Skate Banana that also has the magne traction technology and I absolutely loved that, I’m just curious about the mellow magne traction that this board features and if that handles well on ice or if I’d be better of sticking to regular magne traction

  • GNU

    Alex, hello!
    The Mellow Magne-Traction of the Metal Gnuru shouldn’t cause any trouble with edge hold, even on the East Coast ice!
    You’ll still be getting 7 points of contact rather than the 2 offered on all other snowboards. The elliptical camber underfoot on this board will also add some pressure underfoot, which will aid in edge hold and control…it will also give the board more pop and stability. And who doesn’t love pop and stability!?

  • danny fusco

    GNU since I lived in Boulder!! Keep it up uguys! One of my proudest moments was when ya’lls website was pretty mellow an j knigge* would post up all our weekend sessions..gnu4Life

    Ps- Slash can u sell 2010/2011 riders choice boards anymore my babies got beat up n broken! Buyin cheapness n goin thru 2.5 boards a year…don’t recomendatio that one kids!!

  • Jeff Bossory

    I just bought the 158w awesome just straight up awesome nice work guys it’s Kawasaki green with the skull graphics awesome just awesome

  • The_Sports_Dude

    I’m riding a 156 Carbon Credit that was my first real board to learn on. I prefer mountain riding and carving over park, so I’m looking to switch boards. Is the Metal Gnuru the natural progression? I’m 5’10/180, should I move up to the 158?

  • The_Sports_Dude

    He wasn’t considering a regular board, he’s asking for a comparison between mini Magnetraction and regular Magnetraction.

  • The_Sports_Dude

    Hi, I’m 5’10 / 180, size 9 intermediate currently riding a 156 Carbon Credit. I want a more all-mountain focused board with more stability at speed than what I have now and I’m strongly considering the Metal Gnuru. Should I move up to the 158?

  • GNU

    Wahoo! Thanks for the support. Enjoy!

  • GNU

    You hit the nail on the head with everything!

  • icecoastkiller

    Hi there, I’m 6’3″ 210 lbs. Size 12 boot. I just ordered the metal gnuru 158MW but have yet to ride it. I was riding a huge 162 Wide that was just too much board to throw around. I prefer the shorter length but was super unsure as to whether or not a wide board was necessary. Opinions vary when it comes to this subject so was wondering what you guys think. I’m nervous because after all the reading I think the 158 regular would suit me better. I ride on the ice coast so not alot of crazy deep powder so I don’t think over hang would even be an issue. I also think a little hang over would help turning. Do you think I will be OK on the 158MW? Or would I have been better off just going with the regular? I know it’s alot of preference but just wondering your opinion. I’m more of a bomb down the mountain big carver type rider, with a few glade runs and/or the occasional kicker. Thanks alot for any help. I always second guess my buys so hopefully I made the right choice.

  • icecoastkiller

    Hey man how big are you, I just bought the same exact size board and have yet to ride it. I’m 6′ 3″ 210 lbs size 12 boot and am really hoping I didn’t go too wide and should have just went with regular. thanks alot for your feedback.

  • GNU

    With size 12 boots, a midwide is a much better option! If you rode a standard width board, you would be at risk for toe drag.
    If you’re doing a lot of park riding, 158 is a good length–but your 162 might more versatile

    …Truthfully, you could ride something as big as the mid-to-high 160s without any trouble! But always go with your instinct and what feels best to you!

  • GNU

    Yes, that’s why responded with information about mellow Magne-Traction and how it offers superior edge hold, especially when paired with some camber underfoot.

  • GNU

    Thanks for the kind words and support, we appreciate it!
    We are all sold out of those 2010/2011 RC’s though…sorry!

  • Jeff

    I’m looking at the metal gnuru 158 I’m 5 foot 11 200lbs with a size 11 boot, is that a good size for me? I do everything at the resorts here on the east coast except park but I’m getting to know it a little better. I wanna make myself better and wanted to know about this board in size 158 and seeing if I can progress as a rider in the park and all around the resort by using it thanks

  • Patricio Vidal

    Hi, I’m looking at the metal gnuru 155 W, I’m 5 foot 7, 183 lbs with a size 11 boot, is that a good size for me?. Thanks, Pat.

  • GNU

    Hi Pat I think this will be a great size for you–it should feel super versatile and fun in absolutely any terrain!

  • GNU

    Hi Jeff,
    With size 11 boots you might be more stoked on the midwide–the standard width might put you at risk for experiencing some toe drag.
    But a 158 sounds like the correct length for you–it will feel solid, yet playful. Definitely a good size for progressing ANYWHERE on the mountain!

  • Gabe

    I was looking to buy the metal gnuru ec2 btx, but I have a size 13 boot. Is this board wide enough? My bindings have heel/toe lifters as well

  • Jordan McCormick

    Hi im 6 foot 1 with size 11 feet would I be better to go with 162 or 158MW?? thanks 🙂

  • GNU

    Hey Jordan,
    You could ride either size without any trouble–the waist width between the 162 and 158MW is just .2cm; so it’s really minimal.
    Go with the 158MW if you want to spend time in the park and if you are seeking a really playful/maneuverable board.
    But if you want to spend most of your time riding natural terrain or in deep snow…go 162!

  • GNU

    Size 13 is really cutting it close for a midwide–I think a full-blown wide might be more suitable.
    The Lib Tech Attack Banana is really comparable in terms of shape, but is built with higher quality materials and it is available in wides!

  • Eric

    Hi, I’m confused by magne-traction vs mini magne traction vs smart magnetraction. Isn’t magne-traction (which the Carbon Credit has) better for hard snow, carving turns? But yet, I’ve read on here that the Metal Gnuru is better for hard pack, carving turns, but it has mini-magnetraction. Then the Riders Choice and Smart Pickle have smarte magnetraction. The Board finder listed all 4 of those boards as options for me. I’m looking for an all mountain board, but would probably spend most of my time just carving turns down the hill and sometimes some jibbing and small jumps.

  • GNU

    Hi Eric,
    Smart Magne-Traction means that the Magne-Traction bumps are more pronounced on the heelside edge–we use this on our asym boards, as it results in a more intuitive ride and complements the asym core and sidecuts.
    Mellow Magne-Traction is just a more subtle variation that won’t feel quite as grabby, we used this on the Metal Gnuru to keep it feeling mellow and forgiving.

    The Metal Gnuru has camber underfoot, which is what will really help with carving and power, you’ll still get all of the benefits of Magne-Traction.

    Truthfully, any of the boards you mention above will meet your needs for crusing, craving, jumps and jibs–they’ll all just feel different! SO if you want something more aggressive, go with the Riders Choice. If you want something really playful, go with the Smart Pickle or Carbon Credit. And if you’re looking for something right in the middle, go for the Metal Gnuru.

  • Eric

    Thanks

  • Patrick Volsky

    Hey, I am a pretty good rider and I like jumping large naturally made jumps. Would this board be good for me or do you recommend a better board for that?
