2/ WHAT’S MY TYPE OF RIDING?

Ask yourself some simple questions:

Are you interested in going to the parks? Doing jumps, trying rotations (180° or more), and taking in the bumps just for fun?

Are you interested in riding in powder, looking for off-piste routes in the heart of nature?

ALL MOUNTAIN 

And if you haven't chosen your riding style yet or if you're super-versatile, then go for an equally versatile board so you can ride with your friends on and off-piste while doing whatever you want when you want with your snowboard...

A FREESTYLE snowboard is a TWIN TIP board, namely:

- A perfectly symmetrical board between front and back.

- With its bindings perfectly centred on the board (we talk about 0 mm setback).

These boards will enable you can to go in both directions and make rotations as well as reverse manoeuvres easier. These snowboards are more fun and manoeuvrable.

Twin Tip Snowboard

A FREERIDE snowboard is a DIRECTIONAL board, which means:

- A board with a different front and rear, generally the front is longer and a little wider than the rear tip.

- Bindings position have a set back from the middle of the board (we’re talking about 10 mm, 20 mm or ...X mm setback depending on how far the bindings are moved back from the centre of the board).

These boards mean you can make better turns, offer improved grip on hard snow, and float better in powder! These snowboards are more stable at high speeds and have more grip.

Directional shape

AN all mountain SNOWBOARD, WHICH MEANS:

- A combo between twin and directional snowboards.

- You can have a SetBack or a different flex between the nose and tail of the board.

- These types of boards are designed for fun-seeking shredders who want a board that can do it all.

PLEASE NOTE

Even though ALL MOUNTAIN snowboards perform better on and off-piste, you need to bear in mind that all FREESTYLE snowboards are increasingly versatile with very good on-piste/off-piste abilities.

3/ WHAT LEVEL AM I?

Here are some guidelines to help you determine your snowboarding level:

4/ WHAT SIZE of SNOWBOARD TO CHOOSE?

For FREESTYLE use:

Choose a fairly short board, 20 to 25 cm shorter than you are.
Hold your board vertically in front of you - it should come up to between your shoulder and your chin.

- Choosing a smaller board makes rotations and tricks easier.

- Choosing a longer one means you’ll be more stable at high speed and when landing a jump, and is recommended for people who are heavy for their height.

For ALL MOUNTAIN use:

Choose a board that’s 10 to 20 cm shorter than you are.
Hold your board vertically in front of you - it should reach between your shoulder (or base of your neck) and your chin.

- Choose a smaller one for greater ease of use. This is also recommended for people who are light for their height.

- Choose a bigger one for improved stability at high speed.
