    hey gnu! im a female at 5’8 and 155.. ive been riding a 153 T.Rice for about 4 years now but its time for a new stick. I love the T.Rice but was looking for something with a LITTLE less torsional stiffness. Was considering the riders choice or space case? or another lib tech? any suggestions?
    thanks GNU

  • Daniel

    Hello, hope all is well.
    Just wondering with size would suit me for all mountain with flashes in the park.
    I am 6ft, 160lb and with a size 10 boot.


  • Rawson


    Please help.
    I’ve just ordered a pair of 2016 Burton SLX boots size UK 10. I’d like to complement these with your Space Case 159 and avoid toe/heel drag!
    Burton state these boots are made compact & are now a size less around the outer footprint, theoretically meaning a size UK 9 externally + medium size bindings (for the first time in my life) + potential to look at standard width boards – finally….
    My question – will UK 9’s work on a Space Case? I believe a UK 9 is equivalent to a US 10 but I’m not sure hence the query.
    gnu – special boards!

    Thanks in advance.

  • Kaitlyn

    A UK 10 is equivalent to a US 12, and, thus, a UK 9 is a US 11. You will definitely be able to ride a 159cm Space Case with UK size 9 boots. The UK 10’s would be slightly more questionable, but I’d say you’d still be fine. The way that the sidecut is designed because of the asymmetry makes the nose and tail of the board much wider than the waist, so if you have a little bit wider of a stance and/or more angled out bindings, the 12’s should be no problem. I know quite a few people with US 12’s that ride 153-159 Space Cases, and they’ve had no issues.
    I work at one of GNU’s certified retailers, The House Boardshop.

  • Eric Silva

    Hey GNU,

    I’m thinking of purchases a board but would love some help. I’m stuck between 3 boards you guys have and what size.

    SpaceCase 150 or 153
    HeadSpace 140 or 152
    Riders Choice 151.5

    I ride 65% park 35% all mountain freestyle.

    Intermediate rider, 5’6, 140lbs size 8 boot.

    Thanks for any help,

  • Jon Moore

    Hey GNU,
    I am very interested in the grabbing up a GNU board in the upcoming week, looking for a more playful board to go into the terrain park on smaller kickers and play on boxes and rails. The two boards I have locked in are:
    Space Case (153 or 156)
    Riders Choice (154.5)
    I was originally looking for a board that was in the 154-155 range, I currently ride a 159 Lib AB and that thing seems like a goliath in the park/jibbing. Plus it isn’t the most flexy thing in the world. I’m 5’11” 185# with a size 10.5 boot. My question is, I know the 156 space case and 154.5 riders choice are safe bets for my size. Would it hurt to size down to the 153 Space Case? My local shop has one 156 Space Case in stock so I could get that immediately while I would have to order the others. I have seen guys in my same size riding 151’s but I don’t think I would drop that low because that would almost be a dedicated jib board. Thanks for any advice.

  • Sky

    Hey, so I was wondering if this would be a good board for someone who is an intermediate/advanced rider but beginner in the park?

  • GNU

    Definitely–truthfully, it a good board for any riding style or ability level!
    But it will really excel in playful freestyle situations.

  • GNU

    You’re on the right track!
    You know your riding style and preference more than we do, so go with your gut!
    All of the sizes you mentioned should work beautifully for you.

  • GNU

    All of those boards will be perfect, but they are all different!
    The Head Space will be most playful and the Riders Choice will be most aggressive–the Space Case is a nice happy medium.

    But all of the boards will dominate all over the mountain, and they are all super freestyle-friendly!

  • GNU

    Thanks for the assistance Katilyn!

  • GNU

    156 or 159, depending on your preferences.
    Smaller boards will feel more playful and maneuverable, while a bigger board will feel more solid and powerful.

  • GNU

    Check out the women’s B-Pro or Ladies Choice–you might find that women’s boards have a more playful flex pattern!
    The Space Case is a killer option as well, but you might find it to pack more of a punch than what you’re looking for.

  • GNU

    If you’re looking for something playful, you might be more stoked on the smaller size–150!

  • GNU

    Some people find that BTX (Banana/rocker) boards are more forgiving and catch-free for jibbing..which would be the Head Space. But the Space Case is absolutely killer for jibbing as well, and you might find that some extra camber underfoot will give the board more pop and power.

  • Anya Zakandyrina

    Hey, GNU, is this board 153 OK for _girl_ 130 waith and 159 cm high?)) because I have only this variant I’m my local shop and so difficult for choose this or b-nice 151)) thanks for answer! Xx

  • GNU

    Go for the B-Nice!
    Both boards are built with the same materials, but the 151 B-Nice will be a better size for you–women’s boards generally have a more narrow waist width and mellower flex pattern, so it’ll definitely be more suitable for you.

  • Matthew Vigil

    Will they release more of this board? Or will they make one similar soon?

  • GNU

    The brand new 2016/17 version will be arriving in your local snowboard shop soon!
    Here is a link to our store locator:

    We will also be updating our website with new product in the coming months…keep an eye out!

  • Stephen Levano

    The only ones I can find available for this board are 150cm and a 159 cm. Im 5’11 163 lbs and really want this board(with the 2016 graphic). I really wanted this board around 155 cm but i cant find anything else other than the 150 and 159. Should I get one of them or no?

  • Blake

    I ride size 10 Nike vapen snowboard boots, how would my feet do on a 150cm space case?

  • Norton May

    Hey there is there anywhere where I can buy a 153 spacecase? And shipped to new Zealand?

  • James Atkey

    Hi, currently looking at this board in 150 – I’m 5″6 guy weighing 150lbs, looking to jib and ride some small mountain powder – will it be too small??

  • Chris Nelson

    Hi Gnu,
    I really want the new 2017 Gnu Space Case but I’m 6’2″, 175lbs, size 11.5 feet and I ride my bindings at 15 degree in the front and 12 degrees in the back. Do you think the waist width would be okay for me on a 159? Or should I just stick with the 158 Wide Riders Choice?

    Thanks a lot,
    Chris N

  • Hiphop

    Why dont you make a space case in a bigger size than 159cm? Seems like it would be a great board on a powder day if there was a 161.5cm or a 163cm… A 159cm isn’t quite long enough on those 3ft deep heavy west coast pow days. Its not the kind of board you wanna set the binders back all the way just to get a longer nose either. Make a longer space case for me and everyone else that isnt 150lbs and under 5’5″‘s tall… Pweaze!!

  • Seteek

    Hey guys I’ve been riding a 162 Dirty Pillow since 2012 and I’m looking to get into a Space Case, just need help with the size. I’m 5’10”, 200lbs, and wear a size 11 boot. Thanks guys!

  • Ryan Suddjian

    What’s the differences from the 2014 space case to the new one

  • Is it correct that the space case has now XC2 instead of EC2 and a more aggressive magne traction?

    My feet are 29cm long, I think this converts to rougly 11.5 on the US scale, which is the minimum waist size I should go for with a 15° duckstance?

    I am looking for a buttery and playful board, would describe my riding style as all-mountain jibbing. I am afraid the space case and riders’s choice will be a little bit too hard for me? I am 180cm @ 75kg (5′ 10⅞” @ 165 pounds)..Thank you for your time 😉

  • Luke McGowan

    Yes, XC2 is new this year.
    With 11.5’s I’d get a 156.
    I can’t comment on the Rider Choice but the Space Case feels soft. Feels more like a 4 than 5 to me. I think you’ll be happy with this as you all mountain butter board.

  • Geoff Collins

    Hi Gnu,
    I’m going to bag myself a space case. I’m only a novice and currently riding a salomon 158 board. I am 6ft tall, 203lbs and have Uk size 10.5 boots.
    What size would you recommend – 156 or the 159?
    Many thanks in advance

  • Anthony Atwood

    I just purchased my first GNU (17′ space case). I can’t wait to ride it. I would just like to know, if I plan on jibbing this board quite often at my resort, should I detune the edges? I don’t want to do that if the board is already good to go. Thank you for the help.

  • Chris Thompson

    Hey, what size would be best for my stats, 5’10, 200lb, UK size 10.5 (US 11.5), was thinking the 153?

  • Epic

    Hey GNU. I was originally looking at the Riders Choice 157 for a playful board, but when I went to a shop today, I mentioned that I’m an all mountain rider and ride only a bit of park, but I like a more “buttery” board feel. Dude suggested the Space Case. So I am going this direction, but I’m torn on the length choice.

    I am 5′ 11″ 185lbs size 10.5 boot. Intermediate level rider. In the Riders Choice the 157 made sense. Is 156 pushing on the short side with the Space Case? I notice to have the same Contact spec as the Riders Choice 157 I need to go to the Space Case 159. 159 seems like a long board for me, ….I think.

  • Epic

    I’m not the expert Chris, but 153 is pretty short for any board for a 200lb guy. What kind of riding do you do?

  • Epic
  • Patrick

    HELP! I’m about to purchase the Space Case 153 and need to be reassured it is a good choice! I’m 5’6″ , 166lbs and mostly riding Park (Small/Medium jumps and rails)… I’d really like to try before buying it but no demos around my location… Am I wrong with the sizing ? What about the Riders Choice 154.5 ? Is it going to be little bit stiff for rails ?
    THANKS !

  • Patrick

    Had the same thing on my new board ! The solution is to boil hot water and poor some on the sticky region and wipe it with a cloth. Don’t use a knife or any blunt object, it will scratch your board!

  • Epic

    Cool. Thanks dude!

  • mike

    Hello!, debating between the Space Case or The Riders Choice. Ride mostly east coast so ice is a common thing, some forums online say that the space case has a mellower magnetraction than the riders choice. Is that true? can’t seem to find anything about varying magnetractions on your site.

  • Vu

    Hey GNU! I’m stuck between 153 and 156 space case. I’m 5’9″ 177lbs 10 boot size, novice to park, looking to learn and this will be the board I do it on. Help!

  • Zach Sanders

    which bindings do you recommend for the space case?

  • EricBowser

    Hey Gnu, I have a size 11 boot. No wides? Is a size 11 to big?

  • Hello Eric,

    With a size 11 boot, you might be pushing it. If you like the Space Case, you might also like the Lib Tech TRS HP, It comes in a Mid Wide. the MW would fit your size 11 boot better, Hope this helps!


  • EricBowser

    Thanks. I decided to get the Space Case and love it!! I was able to trim down to a size 10.5 which is perfect.

  • Brandon Smith

    Hey Can’t stop looking at this snowboard.

    Im 5 foot 8, 160 lbs.
    I ride in the northeast. Mostly Ride park and Jib. and if i’m not doing that Im just buttering around the mountain, side tapping / poppin and what not.
