Near Canada, USA (Oct. 3, 2013) – Well into a lifetime quest to make snowboarding easier and more fun Gnu has taken asymmetric snowboard design to the next level with the introduction of the Smart Pickle. Your body is asymmetric, and the turn mechanics heelside to toe side are completely different, the Pickle has brought balance to these asymmetries, and now with the Smart Pickle a special Magne-Traction variation, Finesse Serration (toe side) a Power Serration (heel side), has been fine tuned for greater harmony with nature and snowboarding! This limited edition early release of the Smart Pickle PBTX, and Ladies Smart Pickle PBTX are now available for weird intellectuals online at gnu.com and in retail stores. Think with your Pickle!
