  • Fexs

    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

  • Gnu

    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?

  • SK

    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?

  • Skelzie

    How do you determine the heel edge? I have a 2013 Riders Choice and I didn’t know there is a designated heel edge.

  • Not sure on your exact graphic / year but if it’s the graphic with axes from last year the heel edge is labeled. If it’s the model year prior, the denim version is pickled and has a specific heel edge. If it’s the leather graphic it is not pickled and can be ridden either direction.

  • yes, quiver killer. fun in the park. fun in pow.

  • John Glenna Bodsberg

    Not sure if i should go for the Gnu riders choice or the burton custom twin, help plz 🙂

  • Gnu

    GNU RIDERS CHOICE!
    Our asymmetrical Pickle Tech makes whatever you do on the hill feel more intuitive because it matches your body’s natural asymmetry. Our C2 camber/banana blend is the perfect fusion of fun and aggressive and will give you stability at high speeds, playfulness when you want it, and float in deep snow. Magnetraction will give you superior edge hold to any other board, even if you detune your edges! Are boards are also built right here in the USA, like they have been since the 1970’s, by real living snowboarders. And they’re eco-friendly!

    So in a nutshell: it is more fun, more innovative, and built with more love than any other board on the planet!

  • John Glenna Bodsberg

    Thank you for the reply. What type of binding do you recommend? I am 180cm and is around 75kg. I ride all around, most park riding tho. Gnu binding ofc, but not sure witch one.

  • Vasilios

    I’m between a skunk ape or the riders choice, I’m 6’4″ 215lbs size 13 boot. Which one do you recommend, it seems as if the tech is very similar

  • Galen

    I’m a size 13 too. I’ve ridden both. Two totally different rides in the way they turn. The Skunk Ape, though marketed toward the big guy, is not as well suited for the big foot, as the Riders Choice is. The Skunk Ape has a much shallower side cut, waist is wide, tips aren’t. Wants to make long radius turns, excels at pinning it. Not as good for super layed over tight radius carving. Where as the Riders Choice has both a wide waist and wider tips. The deeper side cut seems to feel more ajile, and will hold a tight turn while carving on edge.
    One is a directional twin, one is a true twin.
    Both are super stable and high performing decks for hefty dudes.
    Both are kind of on the stiff side of med/stiff, but are incredibly forgiving
    Both will crush it from pipe/park to steep and scary.

    It just depends on your riding/turning style.
    Deeper side cut vs shallower side cut.

    I prefer to eliminate as much toe and heel hang as possible at every opportunity, so I prefer the Riders Choice.

    I know they make the “ultra wide” Skunk Ape now. Crazy wide for size 14-15 dudes. Very cool, but I wish Mervin would hit the mark right in between and crank out some decks for us size 13 guys with waist widths of 27.5 cm, in standard lengths. Wide does not have to be long.

  • Trevor

    Hi Vasillos
    It really depends on what type of terrain you ride.
    If you ride steep and deep go Skunk Ape, if you ride more groomers, park go Riders Choice.
    I ride both and have the same build as you just a bit heavier at 240lbs.

  • Viv

    Hey there, I’m 6″2 (189 cm) and around 78 kg/170 lbs. Not sure what size would be ideal. I’m consider either this or the TRS or the TRS HP. Any recommendations for what size for either of these? Also, what kind of bindings? Thinking about stiff Burton Cartels but thinking about a bit more medium flex as I like to hit boxes and rails once in a while although I’m mostly all mountain and park (and looking to move to pow soon). Also any recommendations for boot flex would be swell. Cheers!

  • Lance

    Heard good things about Gnu. 5’8″ 178lbs haven’t snowboarder since I was a kid. Just moved back to Salt Lake City. I need a good all around board that do it all . I don’t know what I like or what size to get. I had cheap boards as a kid. Any suggestions?

  • SirCharles

    I’m intermediate rider 220lbs, size 10shoe, 5’10”, looking at Riders Choice size info. 157.5 or 161.5

  • Kirill

    Hi! My weight 154lbs and shoes size US9,5. I will only ride in the park.

    Help please choose the size RIDERS CHOICE, which is optimal for me – 151.5 or 154.5?

    Thank you very much.

  • Gnu

    Hello!
    I think a good all around size for you would be the 157.5 or the 158W, if your feet are on the bigger side (US size 11+) I would probably recommend a wide board to reduce the possibility of toe drag. You could definitely consider the 161.5 or 162W as well–those will excel in deeper snow, but they might feel a little cumbersome in the park.

  • Gnu

    We pride ourselves on making boards that slay the entire mountain from top to bottom, but the Riders Choice in particular is an awesome all-mountain board…I’d definitely recommend it! I think you will be most stoked on the 154.5. I would also recommend checking out the Spacecase and Metal Gnuru in similar sizes, all of these boards will have some variation of our C2 base contours, camber underfoot will add pop and stability and banana between your legs will make the board more playful and forgiving.

  • Gnu

    I think you could very easily ride either board! If you plan on riding more natural terrain and in deeper snow, go for the 161.5, but if you’re planning on spending time in bounds and on groomers and in the park go for the 157.5. Bigger boards will be more floaty and stable, while smaller boards will be more maneuverable and responsive.

  • Gnu

    I think you could easily ride either size! 151.5 will be really easy to spin and throw around, but the 154.5 will feel more stable.

    I would base your decision off of what size you’ve been riding, if your current board feels hard to maneuver, go smaller! If your current board feels squirrely and unstable, go for the 154.5

  • Gnu

    You took the words right out of our mouths…thanks Galen!

  • Kirill

    Thank you!

  • Lance

    Awesome. Thanks

  • Andrew

    Hi I’m looking for what would be considered a quiver killer. I weigh 190-200 size 11 boot and am 6’4′. My current board is a 158 and I’m looking to downsize. I’ve been quite interested in the riders choice 154.5 but not sure if it is too small for me. Most riding will be midwest with a trip or two to oregon each year. Not a park rat just looking for something rockered and fun.

  • SirCharles

    Thank you for replying. I did choose to go with the 161.5 Riders Choice and now I can’t wait for it to get delivered so I can try it out. My first board of this type with all these features in one. Keep up the great things happening up there. C.

  • EuroFresh

    Hey guys! Looking at picking up a Billy Goat this week. 170-180lbs 6′. Thinking a 159, but I have a 13 boot! Not sure if the 159 will cut. Looking for a sweet all mountain board though. Thanks!

  • Gnu

    Thanks for choosing Gnu! Enjoy the new board and let us know what you think!

  • Gnu

    Hey!
    To prevent toe drag, I would definitely recommend a wide width board with size 13 booot!

  • Gnu

    Hi Andrew, at 6’4″ and 190-200 pounds with size 11 boots I would not consider a 154.5 to be a quiver killer for you. I think it’s going to feel small and perhaps a bit squirrely at higher speeds…and the risk for toe drag will be extremely high! I’d probably recommend the 158W if you’re looking for a Riders Choice. But you may also want to check out the 156W Attack Banana or 157MW TRS…both of these boards are Lib Techs, but they are built in the same factory, by the same snowboarders with jobs using a lot of the same materials and technologies.

  • Leo

    Hi, I am 6’4″, 200 Lbs, size 13 boot, riding mostly groomers, shall I consider riders choice 166W or 162W is enought, I saw a post below by Andrew, but the recommendation seemed to me too downside. Thanks

  • Gnu

    Hey!
    I think either board will be killer for any kind of terrain you could ever in encounter. The 162W will feel more responsive, playful and maneuverable, whereas the 166W will fee like a tank…sturdy, stable! The 166W will also be easier to keep afloat in deep snow, which is something you may want to keep in mind,

  • Daz

    Hi guys, looking for a board to cover mainly piste, some off-piste and a few tricks, have been looking at the space case and riders choice, any suggestions would be welcome?

  • Gnu

    Hey Daz,
    Both the RC and the Spacecase feature variations of our C2 base contours (banana between your feet, and camber underfoot), and both boards will be awesome everywhere! The Spacecase will be a little bit more loose, playful and user-friendly because of the more mild elliptical camber. The Riders Choice will feel a bit more aggressive and powerful due to the increased camber.

    If you’re aiming to charge and go fast and ride aggressively, go for the Riders Choice, and if you want something a bit more mellow and forgiving, go for the Spacecase

  • Daz

    Thanks for that, would the 151.5 be ok in the RC or 150 in the SC, i am 5 ft 6, 143lbs, size 8

  • Gnu

    Yes I think both of those boards will be perfect for you!

  • Mike

    Hello I’m an intermediate rider who has been doing more free riding in the past but looking to getting into more park riding and trees. looking for a stable board at high speeds with strong edge hold but also something that’s easy to in the park. Thinking metal gnuru or riders choice. any suggestions? also I’m 6’0 176 lbs, with size 9 boot. what size board in these? Thanks!

  • Gnu

    Hi Mike,
    If you’re on the prowl for a fast, stable board that will be playful enough to ride in the park, I think the Riders Choice or Metal Gnuru will be great options! I’d probably recommend the 157.5 Riders Choice or 158 Metal Gnuru–both of these sizes will stable at high speeds while still maneuverable enough to ride in the park. You could definitely size down to the 154.5 or 155, but you might be sacrificing some stability.

    The RC is more aggressive, and features our Pickle Tech. Having a designated toe and heel edge makes quick turns and spins feel more intuitive, the MG is 100% symmetrical with our more mellow EC2 base contour, it will feel more forgiving and playful.

  • Mike

    Thanks for the helpful advice! Incidentally just wondering what’s the main difference betw the forest spacecase and the metal gnuru? They seem very similar on paper.

  • Gnu

    The boards have the same EC2 base contour, but that will be the main similarity between the two. The Spacecase also features asymmetrical sidecut and flex patterns (Pickle Tech) as well as Space Bars, which are cross sections of wood in the center of the board to reinforce strength on tough landings and add pop. We also added Liquid Crystal Polymer into the Spacecase, which is a VERY strong and poppy plasti.

    All in all, they are both great boards…the Spacecase just has a lot more tech in it.

  • Luchese

    Hey, I’m stuck between the GNU Riders choice 157.5 and the T. Rice Pro 157 (Lib Tech). I am 5’11” with size 12 boot. Any and all help would be appreciated!

  • Gnu

    With size 12 boot I’d recommend the 158W Riders Choice or the T-Rice; the standard width Riders Choice may give you some toe drag.

    The RC will feel more nimble and playful than the T-Rice because of the increased sidecut on the heel edge, and softer flexing wood in the heel. So if you want something that will excel EVERYWHERE, I would say the Riders Choice. The T-Rice is still versatile, but it will really shine the most in deep and steep terrain.

  • Luchese

    Hmm, interesting. What would you say about the TRS 157 MW?

  • Gnu

    It’s great–kind of a happy medium between the Riders Choice and the T-Rice, the basalt fibers paired with the XC2 base contour make it extremely damp and snappy, but it is a bit more forgiving than the T-Rice. It will still be stiff and aggressive enough to handle anything…but still really lively and fun!

  • Edward Cottrill

    Hi,

    I am 6’3″ and around 210-220lbs size US 13 boot looking for an all mountain freestyle board. Having been riding for a fair few years but been out of the game for about 5 years due to bringing up some pesky kids. Looking for something that I can blast down groomers on and hit a few kickers and rails in the park. Occasional powder but speed and park would be my main objectives. The whole rocker/hybrid thing is all new to me so not really sure where to look. Looking for something that will hold a edge at speed but have some forgiveness for landing after spinning of kickers (it’s been a while). If it butters well that would be a bonus. What eoyld you recommend? Looking at a 162w RC. Currently ride a 167 Burton Baron but looking for something I can manoeuvre a little easier in the park. Anything else in Gnu or lib tech boards you’d recommend?

    Thanks,

    Ed

  • Edward Cottrill

    Or would a 158w be ok? Seems maybe a little on the small size!

  • Gnu

    Hi Ed,
    Based on what you just described (holding an edge and speed, while still having forgiveness) I think any one of our boards with C2 would be perfect for you. But the Riders Choice specifically will be an awesome board for you, the asymmetrical Pickle Tech will make spinning off of jumps feel more intuitive and easy to initiate. The camber underfoot adds a lot of stability and control, and the rocker keeps it fun and playful–it’s truly a quiver killer!

    You could also check out the Lib Tech Attack Banana, which has a more mild camber underfoot or the Lib Skunk Ape, which is slightly setback and more on the aggressive freeride side of things…but I think the RC is going to be the ultimate board for you.

    Cheers,
    Gnu
