    Thanks for the advice! For the record I ended up picking a 154 RC. Just hopping around the living room with it I can tell it’ll be an amazing upgrade from the carbon credit which I still recommend to anyone looking for a first board.

    While my son drools over the t.ripper and dreams of being TR it’s Gnu all the way for me!

  • GNU

    You’re going to love it!

  • Jake Grifone

    i recently had a go on the Forest Bailey Pickle PBTX and I’m looking for a board that is similar to that because it suited my style very well. How does this board compare to that? if its not any similar then what other boards would you guys suggest?

  • GNU

    Hi Jake,
    The Head Space will be most similar! It’s got the same easy/jibby asym BTX shape as the Forest Bailey Pickle.
    The Riders Choice is a more aggressive board with pretty camber underfoot and a stiffer flex.
    The Space Case is the middle-ground between those two boards, it has mild camber underfoot to add power and stability, but because the camber is subtle and elliptical it still has a fun/playful feel.

  • Loren

    Hello , I am interested in purchasing a Rider Choice , and I would like to know what size is right for my height and weight. I am 173cm (5’8″) and weight 89kg(197 libras) ( my boots are 9), the board 157.5 is good for me or better the 161.5?

  • GNU

    Hi Loren,
    I think the 157.5 is going to be more suitable!
    You could ride the 161.5, but because you’re not very tall and your legs are probably not super long it might feel like a lot of board to control. The 157.5 will provide enough float for riding off piste, yet still be maneuverable.

    If your boots are US size 11+, you should definitely consider the 158W instead…particularly if your boots are BIGGER than size 11.

  • Cam

    Been riding the 2010 riders choice for a couple too many years. Would this have a similar feel?? Love that damn thing but she’s getting a little stinky…

  • GNU

    I think the measurements are probably very similar/familiar.
    BUT, this one is packed with more technology and high quality materials…so I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

  • Moritz

    Hi there ! I am 175cm and my weight is 68 kilos. What size would you say is perfect for me?

    Greetings Moritz

  • Joshua Wiebe

    You could really go with any of the 151, 154, or 157. It’s going to depend on what kind of riding you want to do. If you’re looking at mountains and pow, go for the 157, park and street the 151, but that is going to be pushing it on the low end. Personally, I’m 178cm 97kg, I ride a 156 and it works great for all arounf riding. If I were you, I would probably go with the 154, it’s probably going to give you the best all around feel.

  • Moritz

    Thx a lot !

  • GNU

    Yeah, 154.5 will be great–definitely the most versatile size!
    Smaller will be good for parks and jibs, and the 157.5 will be great in deep snow and high speeds.

  • Kire Bo

    Hi! I’m 177/70kg. I look for the 157 or 161.i go most in freeride my question is the 157 is floating good in pow? Thanx 😉

  • Dino

    Hello! I’m 192cm, 95kg and i wear 11,5US boots. I don’t go to the deep powder, i almost always go on truck. I also don’t like the speed so much but i enjoy the curving. I m almost ready to buy the GNU Riders Coice ASS C2 PBTX 2015 161,5. You think this size is ok or i need the wide one? Thanks!!!

  • Rebholz

    Hi! I mostly ride groomers and pow. Is this a good choice ?

  • GNU

    For a fun yet aggressive all-mountain riding, the Riders Choice is the BEST CHOICE.

  • GNU

    Hi Dino, with size 11.5 boots I’d suggest the 162W

  • GNU

    At 177cm and 70 kg, I think the 157.5 will offer plenty of flotation in powder!

  • Dino

    Thank you! And a last think, this board i can ride with both directions? Cause i use my left foot in front and i don’t know if this board matches me…

  • GNU

    Yes! The board has a designated heel and toe side edge, but because it is a true twin you can ride it in both directions!

  • Andi

    Hi! I’m 178 cm , 85 kg and 10 US boots . I like to ride in deep snow , but want one board for everything. Is this a good for me? But first be well in powder.

  • Andi

    What size is good for me?

  • GNU

    157.5 will be awesome in powder, but still suitable to ride in any other terrain imaginable!

  • Sepp

    Hi guys, I’m almost same size and around 80kg, size 9. If there is powder I take it but the rest of the time I like fooling around on the slope and a bit in the park. Would the 154 fit or should I go with the 157 too? Thanks

  • GNU

    You’ll honestly be able to ride either board without any issues!
    The 154.5, will definitely feel smaller and more nimble/maneuverable, but it will be more difficult to float through powder with and won’t feel as sturdy and stable as a bigger board.
    The 157.5 won’t feel as playful or maneuverable, but it will be easier to ride in powder and offer more stability.

    If your priority is a playful, easy to ride board, go 154.5.
    But if you’re looking for something more solid and powerful, go 157.5

  • Daniel

    Hi, I´m thinking about getting a riders choice board. I´d like a playful but allround board for slopes, powder, park. I weigh 62 kg, 170 cm…will the 151,5 be to stiff? Should I go for another board?

  • GNU

    Hi Daniel,
    The 151 Riders Choice or 150 Space Case will be the two most suitable boards for you, I’m thinkin!
    The Riders Choice will be the more aggressive one of the bunch, due to the increased camber underfoot.
    The Space Case has a more subtle, elliptical camber, which has a more easy/loose feel.

    We rate both boards as a 5 on our flex scale, but the more camber a board has, the more pressure you will feel underfoot and the more they will want to be on edge. Either one will be a great option for all-mountain freestyle riding, but they each have their own unique feel.

    I’d recommend scoping them out in person–standing on the boards at a shop will give you a good taste of them and can help you figure out the most suitable option.
