Asymmetric sidecuts hype?

Do asymmetric sidecuts help at all for freeriding or is it mostly just hype? Can't find much info if people actually think they help or not. I am looking at the riders choice and noticed that the pickle version is more expensive. Just wondering if it's worth it.

i've ridden the park pickle and the asym IS noticeable, It has a 7.5 meter radius on the heel edge and an 8,3 on the toe, I didn't like it much, but i like long side cuts, If you dont carve aggressively its nice, but when you go to rip a hard heel side carve its to tight I think i would like a 8m/9m asym,

the RC Pickle is 7.8/8.2 not as big as a difference as on the park pickle but you should notice it.

Walove, have you tried the banana magic? Just wondering what a 7m sidecut would feel like on both sides compared to an 8/9.

no, i'd love to sounds like a fun board. I would like to try a jamie lynn, with a 8.75 side cut. I just like longer radius side cuts when carving at high speeds.

What do you do if you are goofy. it's twin so do you just turn the boar around or do you have an option of specifying that when you buy it?

If goofy you keep the tight side on your heelside so your basically riding the board backwards..but it doesn't matter since it twin.

Asym sidecuts? Santa cruz did it for year, didn't seem to help them sell boards.

Noticable? yes. Needed? Far from it.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
