Product Details

Rocker Type

Banana Technology (BTX)All terrain rocker placed specifically where it belongs, between your feet. Full tip-to-tail edge contact when you stand on your board for all terrain performance. Banana tech is easy to ride, rips the hard pack and ice, kills the jibs, and floats the powder unbelievably.

Flex

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)4-6 (depending on size), supportive for your hard charging days, while still providing you with the perfect amount of flex.

Shape

Symmetrical nose and tail shape

Sidecut

Pickle TechnologyAsymmetric sidecuts and construction balance the different turning mechanics requires for heelside and toeside turns. There is a deeper sidecut on your heel edge. Your body is asymmetric, your snowboard should be asymmetric.

Core

AG2 Sustainable WoodcoreA perfect combination of Aspen and an even more ultra lightweight genetically altered wood core and EISS 9 is perfect for freestyle domination.

Laminates

Quasi Glass4 way fiber orientation 0/45/45/90. Triaxial and biaxial glass combo for max pop and control. Vectran liquid crystal polymer was developed as the fiber foundation for inter-planetary Mars lander tires and has 10 times the strength of titanium.

Sidewalls

EISS 9 UHMW SidewallsTough UHMW sidewalls on the exterior laminated to 9 layers of endgrain birch on the inside. Bombproof and gives the board massive pop. Good on rails.

Base

Sintered 9900 AlloyContinuous compression formed for molecular elongation, preserving its amorphous polymer structure, for maximum wax absorption, and durability: It's tough and fast.

Edges

Magne-Traction™Gives better edge hold and makes for an easier ride. Serrated edges cut into the snow like a knife giving you more edge hold and control than ever before. Magne-Traction™ features 7 strategically located and sized bumps along each side of your sidecut.

      Awesome board, i love everything about it! Carving was a breeze! every time i thought i'd catch snow, the magnetraction kept me standing! Great Flex especially for a small board(140). Light, glides over powder, carves over ice, however i had a bit of trouble with the heavy slush out here on the east coast. all around, perfect board! i'll be sad when i get my first ding..

      Comments about GNU Park Pickle PTX Snowboard - Women's 2012:

      I must say this snowboard has every feature I was looking and hoping for. Fit for park aspects but can handle just riding very well. When I first used this board I immediately noticed it's speed, flimsyness and manuvering qualities. But, unfortunately the one thing that was not to great about this board was the ability to get damaged easily. Such as, scraches or small dents. I believe most of the dents were caused by a lack of an edge on the top and bottom tail. Besides the damage ability, this board is perfect for an all around rider who enjoys the terrain park more than anything else!

        Comments about GNU Park Pickle PTX Snowboard - Women's 2012:

        I ordered a 144cm - this is the second board I've owned...first one was a demo Burton I've had for 7 years so it was time for an upgrade. Have no regrets whatsoever choosing this rocker. It is so much more responsive, flexible and easy to control compared to my old board (even though I was getting so comfortable with my old one) and I would've never been able to push my ability further without this board. Definitely more comfortable going into terrain parks and doing tricks with this baby. Took a bit of getting used to going into powder but it was fine after conciously leaning back slightly before entering. Was a little unstable on the flats but could be because I was getting used to some new bindings as well. Would definitely recommend this baby to anybody wanting to take their riding to the next level. Loving it and can't wait for our next trip to the snow.
