TWIN ASYM. GEOMETRIES: A whole new breed of Twin Tip Geometry that combines a symmetrical nose and tail shape with asymmetrical sidecuts. Although invisible to the naked eye, the heel-side sidecut has a slightly tighter radius than toe-side. This is to help offset the difference in human heel and toe agility (ever notice that toe-side turns are easier than heel-side turns?). The Park Pickle also has a slightly softer/damper wood on the heel-side of the board to help achieve perfect turning balance.
C2 PBTX: Agro Performance Banana/Camber, Rocker between your feet combined with radial cambers out to the contact. Aggressive riders: unreal tip and tail control, power and pop combined with the float, freestyle freedom and carving of rocker between the feet.
A Christy Sports on the snow video review of the 2013-2014 - GNU Riders Choice Snowboard
The GNU Riders Choice was optimized for the park but tested and tuned for great performance all over the mountain. A favorite of the GNU crew, this board responds to the most demanding conditions and creative lines on the mountain. Perhaps its biggest attribute is the asymmetrical side cut with balance contraction. A deeper side cut on the heel side enhances heel side turns balancing them with naturally powerful tow side turns. The results: a snowboard that is easy to ride and fun to ride anywhere.
0:03 My name is Bruce this is the Gnu riders choice
0:06 different the choice of many riders pretty unusual board
0:09 not only does it have the Magne traction serrated edges
0:13 so when you get up on edge it really hold an edge the most unique thing about this
0:17 is it's good deeper sidecut on the heel-side
0:21 so it is a pure twin you always mount it with the side
0:25 being the hillside the toe side does not have as much sidecut
0:29 the reason being for that if you think about it get up on toe side you got all
0:33 kinds of leverage
0:34 can really leverage that edge, the heel-side you can really drive your heels
0:38 deeper side cut longer turn faster turn
0:41 definitely the rider's choice
