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!

    Is this board for regular and goofy riders?

  • Ryan

    Yes but you keep your heels the same side so you would use the other side of the board as your front

    Hey Fexs,
    The board is a true twin with an asymmetrical sidecut, so as long as you have your heels on the designated heel edge the board can be ridden in either direction.

  • Kevin Zacher

    So basically this board will float in pow and hold an edge at the resort on the courderoy or hard pack?

    I’m riding an old riders choice 154.5, the first year with mag and i’m thinking about upgrading. I’m a size 9.5 boot and about 165lb. I spend my time at Mountain Creek in the park and slashing around. I get a few trips in to VT every year but don’t see a lot of deeper stuff. Should I go 151.5 or 154.5?
