  • Gnu

    You could definitely ride the 158W and it will be super easy to maneuver and toss around in the park, but I think if you want something for speed, the 162W will be a lot more suitable.

  • Mike J.

    Hi,
    I am 6’4″ Tall, Weigh 178 with full gear, and have size 13 boots. I am an intermediate rider, not interested in the park or pipe, but want a fast, stable, but tight turning board that eventually(as I progress) allow me to do small jumps. I want something that will get me thru moguls and trees with confidence.

    I was interested in the Riders Choice size 162 Wide? Is this too long for someone my weight? Will this board fit my needs?

  • Gnu

    Hey Mike,
    I think you could easily ride either the 158W or 162W, but if you’re looking for something exceptionally fast and stable you’ll probably be more satisfied with the 162. Because of the C2 baes contours (Banana between your feet, rocker underfoot) the Riders Choice will be awesome all over the mountain. The asymmetrical Pickle Tech will also allow for easy turn initiation. It will be a great board to progress your riding.

  • Doc Bob

    Hi, I am 211 in weight and wear a size 11.5 boot. I ride groomers, some jumps more freestyle than park. I ride quite a lot indoor arenas and 2 weeks in the mountain.
    I own a Ride Machete in 160W, a Ride Berzerker in 161W and am looking for something for freestyle, speed carving and fun. I’ m interested in the Ride Machete GT and the Gnu RC in 162W and tend to the RC. Please Tell my what’s on your mind…and what you think about the Site….
    Ceers, Jan

  • Gnu

    Hi Jan,
    Since you’ve been riding 160W-161W snowboards, I think the 162W Riders Choice will be a great option for you, the 162W will feel stable on jumps and provide a nice big surface for you to land on. The C2 will also be playful yet aggressive, and the Pickle Tech will make turning and spinning feel more intuitive than a standard, symmetrical snowboard….oh man and the magne-traction will blow your mind. I think you will love this board!

  • Doc Bob

    Thanks for you comment! Between the lines I read that you seem to disagree with either size or width….
    Would you rather suggest me taking an standard width?
    Cheers,
    Jan

  • Gnu

    No not at all, with 11.5 boots I think wide is the way to go! You could potentially size down to a 158W, particularly because you do a lot of freestyle riding, but since you’re accustomed to bigger boards I think the 162W will be your best bet.

  • Doc Bob

    I was just worried about mit weight…..and the pop! By the way, is the pop comparable with boards with carbon-stringers???

    Cheers, Jan

  • Dillon

    I’ve been on the 2012 154.4 pickle version of the riders choice for three years now. My favorite board ever. I was wonder at just under 6’0″ how much different the 157.5 would feel. I’m not a park rat I love cruising down the mountain and taking some turns but I do love jumps. I know the there cm is not much of difference in effective edge contact, but I know the size up is a touch wider and stiffer and I’m thinking I might get 157.5 for my next board, any other suggestions?

  • GB

    I’m kind of torn between the 154.5 vs 157.5 but leaning towards going shorter. I’m 5’9 and weigh 180-185. I have a 156 Pickle which I love but want more pop. This would mainly be for park and all mountain freestyle.

  • Gnu

    Hi Dillon,
    I think you will be very pleasantly surprised sizing up to the 157.5! Particularly because you don’t spend too much time in the park. The extra length will feel more stable on jumps, as well as just cruising around and going fast.

  • Gnu

    That’s a tough call! Your 156 Pickle is right in between these two sizes.
    The Riders Choice will definitely feel more poppy and powerful than the Pickle because of its C2 base contour…so I think the 154.5 is a good call. But you could easily ride the 157.5 as well, and the extra length will add some stability.

  • Gnu

    Yeah! This board is more poppy than a Katy Perry song.

  • Doc Bob

    Oh my….

  • Michael Bromley

    Hey, After a bit of advice. Looking for a change from my K2 Raygun. I’ve been looking at the GNU range as I love the look of the A.S.S Pickle Tech. I’m 6’1″, 210 lbs with size 9.5 burton footprint reducing boots so like the standard boards over the wide. Looking to play more now I’m happy carving at speed, so a bit more flex and pop would be ideal. Any recommendations?

  • Eric

    I’ve pretty much decided on purchasing the Rider’s Choice, but my question is size. I’m 5’9, 180 lbs, and I have 2 sizes of boot (10.5 and 11). I wear the larger boot if it’s really cold so I can fit an extra sock. I am debating between the 157.5 and 158w. What do you think?

  • Gnu

    Hi Eric,
    That’s a tough call without seeing your the board and your boots/bindings in person! I think that as long as your stance is slightly angled that you’ll be just fine with the 157.5, but I would HIGHLY recommend comparing the width of this board to the board you’ve been riding and use that as a gauge to see whether or not you’ll get toe drag. Generally, though, size 11 boots are okay with a standard width board.

  • Gnu

    Hey Michael,
    Anything with a variation of our C2 Base Contour and Pickle Tech will be ideal for riding anywhere on the hill. But the Riders Choice in particular is great option for all mountain riding–it’s got the perfect combo of flex and pop, and the Pickle Tech/Magne-Traction are game changers for carving and spins. You may also like the Space Case, which has a more mellow camber underfoot, as well as the Impossible, which is the most tech-packed board we make. We also just released the Aspen Series Riders Choice, with an updated core and more natural, woody appearance. Check em out! But I think the Riders Choice, in either this graphic option, or the Aspen will be the best option for you.

  • Gnu

    I’d also recommend checking out some insoles for your boots, they’ll help your feet stay warm by improving circulation and you’ll be able to wear just one pair of socks!

  • alex forbes

    Hy. I am 80 kg, 180 cm, and size 8.5. What riders choice board will be perfect for me!?

  • Bhealy

    Lookin at the riders choice for a good east coast all around board with ability to travel west is this a good choice ?? Thanks guys

  • Michael Bromley

    Thanks for the advice! Very much appreciated. I’ve gone with your recommendation of the Riders Choice 157.5, although if the Aspen was more freely available I may have gone with that but it’s hard to find here in the UK. The Riders Choice though was what I’d been eyeing up for ages so was happy when that was top of your list!
    Cheers Mike

  • gigi

    HI GNU,
    I am 6ft4 210lbs size 12 boot. Should I go for the 162W or 166W RC. I always thought that it`s better to have a longer board if you are not a beginner but you seem to be recommending 162W for guys of my hight.
    Thanks G.

  • Roaring Fork

    5″9 190 9.5 boot. Looking at a 154 RC. This going to fit? I chase skier friends through the bumps.

  • Gnu

    I’m thinkin the 161.5 will be a nice, versatile size for you.
    But if you’re into riding park downsize to the 157.5.!

  • Gnu

    YES. A phenomenal board for any and all conditions and environments.

  • Gnu

    It all depends on where you want to ride at and your own preferences.
    I think a 166W will be a lot more stable, but a 162W will be easier to maneuver.

  • Gnu

    Yes! But you could easily ride the 157.5 as well and you might find that to be more stable.

  • Gnu

    Wahooo! Enjoy!

  • Gnu

    After converting cm to inches and kg to lbs, I’d like to actually say the 157.5 would be a better fit. Sorry for any confusion!

  • billhuckitall

    i recently purchased a new riders choice 154.5 on my tenth or elevth day riding it, it snapped.. gnu is sending me a new one sooon, but im not sure if i trust riding it everyday now,,, any similar boards that are a bit more stable?

  • Pratters

    Hi guys, I’m 5ft 8, 11 stone, have been riding a 153 T Rice since 2009 and looking for something by Gnu that will be similar. Love trees, off-piste and looking for something all-mountain rather than park/freestyle specific. All suggestions welcome. Thanks

  • S.Dot

    Wassup fellow board junkies!? Im thinking of trading boards with a friend.. I currently ride a Timeless 159… Want a smaller board since I’ve been spending more time in the parks lately… I’m 5’11.. 185lbs and have a size 12 boot! What’s ur opinions on the 2013 RC 154.5?? Do I need a wide board since I have a size 12 boot or U think I’ll be good??

  • S.Dot

    I’m 5’11… 185lbs with a size 12 boot! I really want the GNU RC 154.5… U think I need a wider board?? Or will I be ok as far as toe drag??

  • Gnu

    I think the Riders Choice will be the best option for you; I’d recommend the 154.
    But you should also check out the Lib Tech TRS!

  • Gnu

    I would probably recommend going for a wide, the waist on the 154.5 is just 24.8cm….most of our wide boards are 26.8!

  • Gnu

    I think you submitted two very similar questions….check out the response above!

  • jpatrick_kc

    I’m 5’10” and 190 lbs with size 10 boot. I just bought a RC 158W and I’m concerned that I don’t need a “wide” board. Should I go back and trade in for the 154.5?

  • Gnu

    Hello! With size a size 10 boot you do not need a wide board, and I think a 158W might be more suitable than a 154.5.
    The 157.5 is probably the ideal size for you, but the 158W won’t really hinder your riding–it may take a bit more effort to get it on edge, but the added width will also lend some more stability to the snowboard.

  • Badog

    Ok so I’m torn between the Riders choice 154.5 and the Smart Pickle 156. (Maybe the Travis Rice Pro 155 too!)
    I’M 5’10” 190 lbs and US size 10 boot. I rarely go to the park but like to butter and play around. Love trees and pow and hacking down the piste.
    I currently run a 154 Palmer Andy Finch but find it sketchy at speed.
    Holiday is booked in 3 weeks so gotta buy soon..
    Thanks !

  • Kirill

    Hello, I’m 6′ 0″ 195 lbs, size 10 boots, looking to buy Riders choice, for all mountain, what size should I buy?

  • Gnu

    Go for the Riders Choice!
    But I’d recommend the 157.5 rather than the 154.5.

    The 157.5 will still be a breeze to maneuver, but it will feel more stable at high speeds and allow you to float effortlessly through the powder! The T-Rice is a solid choice as well, but if you’re looking for something a bit more playful and buttery, I think the Riders Choice is a better option for you.

  • Gnu

    157.5 or 161.5

    Go for 157.5 if you want something more maneuverable and jib-friendly, but if you’re wanting something more stable and floaty in the powder the 161.5 will be a great option!

  • Kirill

    Thank you, will buy 157,5 then

  • jj
