Pickle Technology to work with your body's natural mechanics, enhancing your overall riding experience. Nothing gets your appetite going like a pickle, and the Smart Pickle won't let you go hungry whether your meal consists of a steady diet of park and pipe or involves tucking into plate after plate of pow.

Product Details

Rocker Type

BTXRevolutionary all terrain freestyle banana blend. Rocker between your feet with flat to mild camber to contact points. Mild tip pressure for unreal float and jibbing, solid pressure between your feet for easy turning and great ice edge hold.


Flex Rating: 5.5 - 6.5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)A medium to medium-stiff flex ideal for a wide variety of conditions, from groomed runs to powder.


A.S.S. Pickle TechnologyAsymmetric Symmetric Synchronization uses asymmetry in the board's sidecut (deeper heelside sidecut), wood core components (asymmetric wood lamination for softer heelside flex), contact angles (power serration on heelside and fine serration on toeside, short heelside edge contact and longer toeside contact) and tip and tail design to make riding a whole lot easier. The board harmonizes with your bodies natural asymmetry and the unique toeside and heelside snowboard activation mechanics.


Miraculous Aspen SpineThe strong, powerful center beam of all Gnu cores.

Powerful Golden POP-lar Toe SideThis light, lively wood reduces the snowboards weight while adding a crisp pop.

Amazing PaulowniaThis energy regenerative wood is GNU's lightest and smoothest core material that significantly reduces vibrations and dampens harsh landings.

FSC Certified Wood CoresFSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.


Bi ax / Tri axThis is a glass and fiber reinforcement combination to give the snowboard a long life and plenty of pop.


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

Birch Power Transfer Internal SidewallsThese sidewalls transfer energy to the edges more rapidly. Aiming to give you unmatched control, pop, precision, and response.

UHMW Tip and Tail Impact Protection
