Choosing the right skis seems like a puzzle to you? Don't worry, we have the advice you need!


In order to advise you in the best manner, your Decathlon dealers know all the secrets of the Wed’ze products. For that, what could be better than testing the new ski and snowboard collection on the snow? In november, a team of Wed’ze dealers from Decathlon gathered in Tignes, like they do each year, to try this winter 2014-2015 ski and snowboard range in the field, so they could give you the best advice in stores.

Sébastien Labadie, Wed’ze dealer-instructor in Sallanches, French Alps, explains why and how this “field meeting” took place.

Wed’ze: Sebastien, can you explain to us what this “field meeting” is?

SL: “For 6 years now we have been organizing a week-end of test on snow between dealers-instructors before the season’s kick off . The dealers-instructors are then in charge of training the dealers at their store thanks to their experience in the field. This will allow to deliver the best advice to the client and know the products like the back of their hands. This year, we decided to get even the dealers on skis and snowboards. We trained 70 dealers in a week, with a day of presentation at the store and one day on the pistes in Tignes.”



Wed’ze: So, what about the new Wed’ze collection?

SL: “We were able to test the whole ski and snow 2014-2015 collection an the dealers were really happy about their tests. The new Women dedicated ski range ADIX pleased everyone. It’s a complete range for women who like skiing and which allows a good margin of evolution.

But really the trainees’ hearts set on the X-Lander 8.0, the X-Lander 8.0 ski, with its very good all-mountain characteristics, also the new Dreamscape board, one that you can play with on and off piste.”

Wed’ze: what does this meeting mean to you, why is it important?

SL: “Choosing the right pair of ski or the good snowboard can be quite complicated for people who come to see us in stores. For us and our teams, it is essential to be able to deliver the right advice, so they can leave with the gear that will be right for them, and enjoy their winter to the fullest.


We are proud of the skis and snowboard created by Wed’ze, which get more technical each year, without loosing their accessibility. With this meeting and training, we can give the client an advice based on a personal experience and feelings, not only the characteristics given by the manufacturer. We understand the gear better so we can better help the skiers and snowboarders choosing what will suit them best.


So don’t hesitate to come and visit us, we will do our best to enlighten you ski season with the best equipment for you!
