The human Body is Asymmetric. Turn mechanics for toe and heel side are completely different. The angle of attack you can achieve on a toe side turn is much steeper than what is possible on a heel side turn because of ankle, knee and hip dynamics. Your toes are like fingers offering much more refined micro managed edge control on a toe side turn. Your heels line up directly under your ankle and legs offering a powerful direct connection to the heel side edge.

Points of Pickle

  • Smart Formula Asymmetric Magne-Traction
  • Deeper Heel Side Sidecut
  • Asymmetric “Pickle Barrel” Core, Softer Heel Side Flex

We have built the Smart Pickle in harmony with nature and around how you activate your snowboard. Think with your Pickle!

    Pickle Barrel Blend. Great Lakes Aspen and Columbian Gold adds Polonia (extremely renewable, ultra-lightweight wood) to the heel side edge for a softer heel side flex.

  • UHMW Sidewalls

    Ultra High Molecular Weight exterior sidewalls made from soy-based elastomer are laminated to five internal wood layers for totally bombproof sidewalls.

  • Sintered Base

    Compression hardened amorphous UHMW skived from the billet to create the toughest, fastest, best wax holding base material around. Slides best and fastest when waxed regularly to match local snow conditions.
