Smart Pickle PBTX Snowboard is designed around the human body to make snowboarding easier. Your body isn't symmetric, so why should your snowboard be? The Smart Pickle is all about asymmetry. Turning dynamics for heelside and toe are different, so the toeside sidecut is a little longer and features a mellower version of Magne-Traction, while the heelside side cut is tighter and features traditional Magne-Traction. This allows the board to work with your body dynamics for a smoother, easier ride. The mad scientists at GNU
are pretty darn bright, so why not try their Smart Pickle?
Banana BTX - Rocker between your feet combined with flat to mild camber out to the contact points results in easy riding and turning, great jibbing and epic float in pow.
Flex 5.5 - 6.5 Depending on Size - Medium stiff flex handles everything from corduroy, powder, to big mountain obstacles. A slightly stiffer medium flex is designed to be versatile with a focus towards freeriding.
