Forest Bailey and Gnu get it together to bring you a limited edition Psychedelic Park Pickle.
Forest Bailey has been getting weird on Gun’s Park Pickle for a couple of years now, his skate influenced shredding coming decidedly out of left field and fitting perfectly with the Pickle’s own eccentric tendencies. As they say, “He rides hard, wins contests, wears sweaters, is crispy and has achieved supreme balance through asymmetry.” To commemorate the love-in between the man named after the place where boards are grow, Gnu have given Forest his very own Gnu Psychedelic Park Pickle model! Sizes 150, 153, 156. It’s limited edition and available now!
Here’s how Gnu break down the tech in their own inimitable style…
Your body is asymmetric, your snowboard should be asymmetric.
Twin asymmetric Magne-Traction Banana for ducks! The Park Pickle takes the next step in snowboard specific geometries. Banana between your feet for easy riding, catch free park freestyle performance, and unreal float in powder. Magne-Traction for unreal edgehold everywhere. Asymmetric sidecuts and construction to balance the different turning mechanics required for heelside turns and toe side turns. Your heels have power and a direct line to your edges… your toes have finger like finesse and control but your energy must be transmitted out too your toes through the power robbing 90° angle of your foot and ankle. Your body is asymmetric, your snowboard should be asymmetric. Park Pickles with a deeper heelside sidecut and unique asym core, are designed around progressive riding and modern freestyle duck stances in all terrain. Experimenting is fun! TWSNOW Good Wood Winner! Snowboarder Best of Test Winner!
