Description

Tickles your pickle like none other.

If you love the thought of sliding your stick up and down slippery boxes, the Gnu Park Pickle BTX Snowboard helps you get your jollies. The asymmetrical sidecut ensures optimal balance and control (especially with a ducked-out stance), while the jib-friendly flex helps you lock in your presses.
  • Asymmetrical true twin shape uses separate sidecuts on the toe and heel edge—improved control for both regular and goofy riders
  • Banana Tech rocker lifts contact points off the snow for a forgiving, catch free ride that helps you stomp more tricks
  • Magne-Traction edges add five contact points for maximum edge grip in all snow conditions

im a surfer boi, i have been around the ocean my entire life and will be moving to tennessee in a couple of months, any tips on snowboarding for beginners?

Responded on

Get a lesson! Toe edge will be similar but heal is way different. More like longboarding on a skateboard then surfing. In my opinion surfing is way harder but def get a lesson bro.

It's a killer for any type of boarding. from Park to All mountain. I used this board everywhere even in powder, ofcourse after moving the bindings back a bit works great !!!

i just bought this board and it felt a little weird prob because i have rode a camber all my life. but the girl changed my bindings so the highbacks would be parallel with the heel edge of my board. is that right? because somthing felt wierd and idk what it is. the heel edge being bigger or what. dont get me wrong i do love this board. i just thought it felt weird after 3 straight days of riding still. any reasons anyone? oh and how should my stance be if i ride all park where im from? personal preferance?

Best Answer Responded on

Yeah its all personal preference. By rotating the highbacks parallel it can help a bit with edge hold as well as keep them from biting into your calf as much. I ran them parallel for a week or so last season and didn't like it enough to keep them that way so I just run them "normal". Its your board so rotate them back in line with your binding andlges if parallel isn't working out for you.

The Pickle Tickle

Once you strap into this board there is no going back. the flex on the pickle will slay anything you put under you feet; the pop is equal of better than the skate banana. The asymmetric side cut really helps set up your front side spins. The magna-traction cut in to the ice and gives you extra security. This is my favorite board, especially in this price range. If your in the market for a rocker freestyle/park board; i couldn't recommend anything better.

OK. IS weight mean riders weight + gear (boots, pants, jacket) or only human weight?

Responded on

Well, obviously you weigh more all suited up, but not enough to really make a difference. I, and I think most people, just use their weight in like a t shirt and shorts for reference. Your gear probably doesn't weight more than 10 or so pounds, maybe less so that isn't enough to really make a big difference I don't think.

Hello. How long (height) I must be for it board (159) and what color of it (green, black or white)?

Responded on

Arrrrgh! Again the snowboard industry makes people think that height is a viable measure of board length. It is not! You're height does not matter when picking a board, you're weight matters. The board flexes based upon your weight not your height. If you're 6 feet 200lbs or 4 feet 200lbs a board will flex the same for both people. That being said depending on your style of riding you could ride a 159 say 160lbs and up without much issue. The color is luck of the draw.

Hello. In official website of it board I read what it's for duck stances. If I ride normal stance (5,15) can I use it board for it?

Responded on

Yeah no problem at all. You just have to make sure that you set the board up with your heels on the right side due to the a symmetrical sidecut. The board has a label where to put your heel side so shouldn't be a problem. For future reference you can (within reason) put any angled stance on any board you want, duck, both feet forward, whatever.

Hello. I'm 5.5ft and 154lb. And I between beginner and intermedian. It must be my second board. I think 153 is right for me. Or I need longer? Please help.

Best Answer Responded on

Honestly you won't need bigger I am 5'10" 165 and I bought the 153 park pickle and it is the most amazing ride I have ever felt, just ordered the forum republic bindings totry and get even more flex. Not saying that it isn't already flexy enough

im 6'3 230, and i want a pretty small park board that i can play around on. should i go for the 156wide or the 159wide?

Best Answer Responded on

hey daz well brands now days are realizing that people want to run smaller boardds. So there are now specific boards made to be run shorter. But if ur lookig for a short board simply cuz its playful there are also boards that are a bit bigger that still have some great playful flex. so if i were u id loook ito a bit bigger board that is like a 2-4 on the flex scale. But its cool if ur not into that im just saying this is a 5-6 on a flex sclae of 10 its really not to playful but then agiain with ur size i beleive u could make it work. hope i helped man

Hi there.
I'm porbably gonna buy me a pickle soon. Now I'm wondering about the size. I'm 6ft and weigh about 176lbs. Nowadays I mostly shred the slopes while doing a few spins, butters and presses here and there (not so much of a park guy).
I'm considering the 159. What do you think should I go smaller?

I'm wondering which size I should get? I'm 5'11, 155lbs, size 13 boots. Mostly park but groomers and pow here and than. Thanks.

Responded on

You probably want to go with a 159-163.. Around a 159 if you are wanting to do a lot of jibbing or more park focused. A little longer if you would rather have more of an all mountain board. The biggest thing you need to make sure you get in a board is a WIDE board. Because of your foot size if you do not get a wide board you will have heal and toe drag.

I'm 5'9" and 185 and a size 11 boot. I just bought a 159W b/c I mostly want an all mountain board for cruising and carving through the backwoods and hitting the park every now and then. You think I made the right choice with the 159 rather than the 156 since I mostly like to freeride?

Responded on

Yeah for sure. You'll appreciate the extra length in pow and the stability cruising around the hill. The 156 would have worked but probably would have been more of a jump board for your stats.

Responded on

o for sure because its easier to take a free ride/ powder size board in to the park then take a park board out of the park and sense you spend most of your time out of the park you made the right choice for sure.

Hey I'm 6'0 180 pounds with size 12 feet and my question is this... should i go for the 156 or the 156 wide? Me no likey the heel/toe drag....

Responded on

Go with the wide, it'll keep your flippers from dragging. Yeah, I've got 11.5 boots and I go for wide boards a lot of the time cause on narrower boards, as dumb as it sounds, I have caught my toes while turning before.

got this this morning, am used to riding the riders choice and the lib trs, this is almost as stiff, but handles speed better due to the asymetrical heelside sidecut, super hard, and very fast base, poppy, slow sign ollies all day, and buttery, playful in the park but stomped spins easily!!! this is my new fav shred stick!

park pickle,jib stick,or skate banana? i ride park..mostly rails but want to hit jumps with it also and i want a nice soft flex for presses. which board would i enjoy more?

Best Answer Responded on

jib stick

Responded on

They all sound like pretty fun boards that would suit your needs to a T.
What graphic do you like best? And do they have the size you want in stock?
I like the Pickle's deeper heelside edge, it really helps you spin off your heel edge. (frontside spins for days!)

Posted on

Hi, I'm 6'0 and around 154 pounds, would going a 153 be too small or just fine?

Responded on

In short:
153 will be just fine. A nice blend of stability and agility.

In more detail:
It will be sweet in the blue park, at tech rail stuff and just kidding around. On bigger pedal to the metal things you should consider a 155. If you only ride rails go for a 151.

Background:
I'm 6' 164 lbs and ride a 155 Capita Horroscope which is similar to the Park Pickle. The Pickle is a little stiffer with it's carbon rods, the Horror is more like a Banana.
I find the 155 a bit long for tech rail stuff. It rides like my old 157 K2 Believer (medium/stiff traditional camber). Which is great for jumps and cannonball runs, the reversed camber is not that great at high speed though. The centred contact point tend to be dodgy when riding flat base on harder surfaces.

Posted on

if im around 6'3" and I weigh around 180lbs.
is the 159 necessarily long?

Responded on

It depends on your riding style:
I say a 155 is your pick. I prefer rails and low speed stuff.
My friend says 159 will be good for you. He likes his powder.

For 30'+ jumps, go for the 159. The 155 will probably buckle when landing in the back seat.

---

Note: I see the 155 is out of stock. Other similar boards would be Capita Stairmaster, Burton Custom (this has setback), K2 Parkstar. They all offer about the same stiffness, pop and rocker profile.
