Pros know snowboarders are asymmetrical from front to back, and turn mechanics are vastly different from toe side to heel side. Crepel, Warbington, Blake Paul and the Weird Science Team at Gnu have incorporated 4 unique balancing design concepts that harmonize and harness our natural bio-mechanics, and built them into the award winning riders choice.

Points of Pickle

  • Deeper Heel Side Sidecut
  • Asymmetric “Pickle Barrel” Core, Softer Heel Side Flex
  • Asymmetric Contact Angles, Shorter Heel Side Edge Contact
  • Asymmetric Tip and Tail Shapes

C2 Banana camber combo geometries provide confidence building end-to-end stability, pop and control at critical moments, Banana tech provides incredible float in pow and limitless catch free freestyle progression. Your jib board is your pow board and your pow board is your park board!

    Hey GNU!
    I currently ride a 2004 carbon high beam 164w. I’ve taken it all over Colorado, Utah, California and absolutely love it. The board has served me well for over a decade! Looking to upgrade to a 2015 Riders Choice. I’m 6’0 tall, 300lbs, and size 12 boot. Which size board would you recommend? I found a good deal on a 158w but I’m hesitant to buy a shorter board, I really like my 164w. Thanks for all the years of great boarding!

    Hello there!

    Thanks so much for all of the kind words and support–we really appreciate it.
    I think you could ride the 158W without any issues, BUT if you like your big board I wouldn’t suggest sizing down.
    A 6cm decrease is pretty substantial and it will be completely different than your 164 CHB.

    I think you’ll be more satisfied with the 162W–it’s still a little smaller than what you’re used to but with the technology in this board less is more and I don’t think you’ll notice too much of a difference in size, but the level of performance will blow your mind.

    REI (an authorized Gnu Retailer) has it in stock, and it’s got a pretty killer discount:

    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!
