    6’1 185 size 11 boot.. what do you think best size? going more for free riding aspect..

  • aaronco22

    Hi, looking at getting a gnu for the upcoming season, Colorado summit county riding primarily. I ride it all, besides rails. I like the float in powder, tight smooth carving on groomers, pressing ability, and hitting big booters and natural terrain. Need a stable board to approach these booters with some POP. I am 6’1, 210lbs with size 11-11.5 boot. I have it narrowed down between your riders choice and space case. Please advise me and the rest of the forum on the difference in ride characteristics between the 2 contours on these models, flex difference, and your size recommendations. Also, I am looking at last years models for price reasons, I see 3 different riders choice models. What makes each of these models unique?

  • Scott Lemon

    What happened to the impossible? Is the riders choice the closest.

  • Geoff

    yo! I’m 6-1, 145 lbs, size 11 boots. I ride mostly rails and hills. looking at the riders choice for sure, but deciding between 157.5 and 158w, which one should i go for???

  • Kalle Forsberg

    Hello im looking to buy the new 2017 Riders Choice and want your advice on size, Im 191cm (75,2in) and weighs 72kg (158lb) I wear i size 10 to 10,5 boot. Thanks!

  • Holland Jackson

    It sure would be nice if you made this in a 155 wide. I would just buy it, instead of looking around stuff at the NS Proto Type Two and the Smokin Awesymmetrical.

    .

  • Lubo

    Hello , I am 182 cm , 77 kg, boot size 290 .I ride 162w carbon credit from 5 years. But its heavy for me. I was thinking for 157.5 or 158w . I ride in powder , big mountain, forest and some jumps but not often. Which is better size for me? Thank you

  • superbando

    looking to change it up with a new board. currently on a riders choice 161.5 (boot size 10) im 5’10” and 220 lbs. i never ride switch, almost never in the park. looking for a stable carving machine. i also like the asym cut that my board has. what boards should i be looking at. i love all mervin boards!

  • Andre

    Hi, I have been an owner of a 2009 and a 2012 Riders Choice and wanted to change boards to something which is ideally a little stiffer. I have tried a friends’ Lib Tech TRS and loved it but found it a bit too stiff. So….my question is what would a good board be that stands between the Riders Choice and the TRS? I mostly ride all mountain (groomers, carving, powder and some park)? Thanks!

  • Jameson Edwards

    Hi there! Sorry for yet another sizing question… I’m considering buying last year’s RC off a friend but it’s one size larger than ideal. It’s a 157.5 and I’m 165lbs, 5’7″, size 10 boots. I’m looking for something playful and nimble (I have another board for speed/charging/carving). Should I hold out for a smaller board or would the 157.5 not feel *that* big? Thanks!

  • Pardy Hardy

    Hi, are there any differences between the 2016 ‘Aspen edition’, and the normal 2016 version? Also, how does the 2016 version compare to the 2017 version?

  • PG

    Hi,

    In last year’s model I saw PBTX designation. Is there any difference between BTX and PBTX?

    Thanks!

  • Johnny

    Hi,
    I’m looking at either the attack banana or rider’s choice. Both seem similar except for the slight variance in camber. Advice?

  • Michal

    hello, I’m 40 years old, 189 cm tall (bout 6 feet 2.5 inches), about 100 kg (about 220.46 pounds) but 45-46 cm (17.71 inches).

    My experience: about 3 seasons (3 x 1 week). Most recently in 2013.

    I like to ride off-piste in the fresh snow in the forest, like twists, like the feel when the board is working with the top ie. flows through it.
    Not interested in riding over obstacles, jumping. I do not feel confident.

    I have Northwave shoes – flex around 5.

    Recently I was on snowboard in 2013 on borrowed boards:

    Rosignol – Snowboard – Trick Stick, RSP F68W – fun I rode board torsion.
    Nitro Magnum 165 – board too stiff, I had problems with control on the icy snow. Does not forgive mistakes.

    Does Snowboard GNURIDERS CHOICE will be a good choice? Is it too stiff? What size?
    I read some review, and have doubt If I can have fun and skills to to ride this board.

    Please help.
    Kind regards,
    Michał

    P.S.

    t’s a true twin meant for an intermediate to advanced all-mountain freestyle rider so it’s definitely a board you can pretty much go and do anything with.

    This is like the metal Gnuru on steroids. Very aggressive, very stiff

  • Michal

    Hi,

    Is carbon credit asym will be better choice?

  • Igor Nabhan

    Hey, guys…what´d be the main differences between the RC and the Space Case.
    Which one would carve better?

  • Igor Nabhan

    Anyone?

  • Bobby

    How about for size 11s?

  • Adrian Peja

    Hi Gnu team,
    I am in between the riders choice 157.5cm and metal gnuru 158.
    1.78cm height, 75kg, 9.5 shoe size.
    More for slopes, some jumps, some powder and some boxes and kickers and that’s about all for me in the park.
    My bindings are pretty soft, flex 4 and the boots have a flex 6.
    What would you advise?
    Thank you!

  • Hello,

    For your size and riding style the Riders Choice might be the better of the two. Having a little bit more aggressive camber profile and being a bit stiffer will help with stability on hard pack and pop off jumps.

    Hope this helps!
    -Mervin

  • Adrian Peja

    Thank you guys!

  • Alex W

    I have a space case and RC. I can’t compare like for like though because they’re different sizes (156SC and a 162w RC).

    Base on riding both for a couple of years now, I think the RC like-for-like size would be a better carving board. Feels a bit stiffer.

  • Wojtek Gancarz

    Hey,

    I weigh 84kg (185 lbs), I am 164cm (5’5″) tall, my boot size is 41 (8). Which size of 2017 Rider’s Choice should I get?

    Thanks!

  • Hello,

    For your height and weight the 151.5 would work well.

    -Mervin

  • Zac Duczynski

    Hi Gnu, need your help for sizing. I’m 6’4 however i’m only 17 and weigh 84kgs and size 13/14 US boot.. Should i go the 162W or the 161.5? Cheers legends!

  • Hello,

    For your boot size you will be better off with the 62W. It will help reduce the amount of toe and heel drag.

    -Mervin

  • Zac Duczynski

    Cheers Mervin

  • Justin Vink

    Looks like the board stiffness rating got upped to a 7 this year. Did the guts change? Im looking to ride park with this deck, 215lbs with a 14 boot. Just looking for the widest twin i can find with a mid flex. Looking at the 158w

  • Tony

    Since they’re asymmetrical, is there a “regular” board and a “goofy” board? I had an asymmetrical board in the past, and it was goofy-specific. Please explain how I know what to order, since I’m a goofy rider.

  • Daro

    It’s a true Twin mate so you just rotate it around 😉
