Features of the product

A word from the product manager
If you only needed one...
Programme/terrain
The Park & Ride is true to its name, it's as good in parks as on- and off-piste. In parks, it is particularly suited to jumps (ramps) and you can trust it on take-off and landing. The standard camber provides pop for jumps and stability at full speed. The rocker offers manageability, as well as buoyancy in case of powdery snow. Its Powder Stance allows you to enjoy powder snow like with a freeride board.
Twin Tip snowboard
It is a Twin Tip shaped snowboard. The board's front and rear sidecuts are completely symmetrical, offering perfect centring and symmetry for riding in both directions in the same way. The Twin Tip shape also provides total balance when turning (on the ground, in the air).
Rocker camber + standard + rocker
All the advantages of both the standard camber (thanks to the board's elasticity, a standard camber serves as a spring to provide grip on all types of snow, edge-to-edge dynamism and recoil when coming out of turns) and the rocker (under constraints, the board's points of contact with the snow come closer together, making the board more manageable). The rocker elongates and raises the nose so that it can glide better over powder.
Medium, versatile flex
The Carve's flex, i.e. the stiffness of the board between the front and rear, is about 3/5, which is average and versatile. It offers predictable handling when cutting corners and is forgiving of edge mistakes.
Versatile and medium torsion
The torsion, i.e. the torsional stiffness of the board between the feet, is about 3/5, which is fairly stiff for good hold in the curves, recovery coming out of a turn and responsive edge transition. It is also flexible enough to enjoy a bit of freestyle. Its medium torsion makes the Park & Ride particularly versatile, more than just a jib board.
0 mm setback, can be set to 60 mm: Powder Stance
The setback is when the board's compression points with the snow are not symmetrical in relation to the centre of the board, but set back towards the rear. The bindings are also set back towards the rear by the same distance. 0 mm: no setback, these are fully centred Twin Tip boards, not only for riding in both directions, but also for better balance during rotations in the air and on slopes.
Technical information
Front width 300 mm. Centre 258 mm. Back 300 mm (size 153 wide). Radius 8.3 m (153 wide). Effective edge 1,115 mm. No. of inserts: 2 x (10 + 2) = 24. (4 possible positions per binding/20 mm between each position - the last series of inserts is shifted for setting the bindings at Powder Stance = 60 mm setback). Recommended stance: 565 mm.
Extruded base and high-quality glide
Extruded base (manufacturing process that is different from sintered bases): - provides a normal glide and good durability over time, - requires regular maintenance: ideally, wax after every 5 outings and at least once a year, - either at the beginning of the season to start with a very good glide, - or at the end of the season to nourish the base in depth, leaving it on to protect it throughout the summer. Ideally with the bindings pointing downwards.
Sold as a pack with Illusion "500" bindings and freestyle-type highback
It is an Illusion 700 without the full EVA pad, with: - 3D foam ankle strap that hugs the shoe, offering perfect support. The foam provides a tight fastening and keeps feet extremely comfortable. - front strap in cap strap (position only on the toes) for incredible comfort and support. - easy Turn Strap opening system so that the strap does not get caught at the opening of the shoe. 152 cm, size M: 36 to 42. 153 cm W and 158 cm W, size L: 42 to 48.
What's the right size Park & Ride for me?
In Freestyle, use a fairly short board: -20 to -25 cm. (e.g., someone measuring 1m74 can use a board between 154 and 149 cm). _ Choosing smaller makes it easier to do rotations and tricks _ Choosing bigger provides greater stability at speed and when landing after jumps The Park & Ride is relatively small. The 158 wide is perfect for larger builds. 152 cm => 1.65 to 1.78 m 153 cm wide => from 1m70 to 1m80 158 cm wide => from 1m80 to 1m90 (+85 kg)

    quel taille

    bonjour,
    je mesure 1m78 pour 80kg quel taille me conseillez vous?

    Brand's answer :

    Bonjour,

    sans hésiter la 153 cm Wide.
    Elle sera assez rigide pour vous permettre de faire de beaux virages carvéer sur piste (elle à un cambre classique et une torsion médiul entre les fix)
    Elle sera assez courte pour jouer avec, et son rocker avant et arrière aidera
    Et pour les jours de poudreuse, vous pourrez reculer les fixation sde 60 mm pour retrouver un grand nose, et votre poids bien sur l'arrière.

    Et la 158 cm est vraiment réservée aux personnes de plus de 85 kg, sinon, elle sera vraiment trop raide.
    Merci de la question.
    A votre disposition.

    PHILIPPE, chef de produit.

    Parfait

    bien meilleure que bc de planches prises en location, même dans la meilleure gamme ; les fixations sont géniales, elles offrent un maintien fantastique sans point de compression ou douleurs.

    Caractéristique planche

    Bonjour,

    Je permets d'utiliser cette rubrique afin de connaitre la bonne tailler de planche à choisir à savoir que je mesure 1m69 pour 64. Pointure 41.
    J'ai unn nivieau amateur/confirmé, piste et hors-piste.

    Merci d'avance.

    Brand's answer :

    Bonjour,

    j'imagine que vous avez besoin de choisir la taille du snowboard que vous avez choisi pour vous exprimer , c'est à dire la park & ride.
    Typiquement pour vous, c'est la taille 153 cm. Elle mid wide, c'est à dire un peu large pour accepter les grands pieds. Vous n'en n'avez pas besoin, mais ce ne sera pas une gène non plus, qui peut le plus peut le moins dans ce cas là.
    Si vous souhaitez connaitre votre taille de snowboard de manière général, je vous renvois à notre page conseil sur wedze.com : https://www.wedze.fr/conseils/comment-choisir-la-taille-de-mon-snowboard-a_85130

    merci de nous avoir sollicité.
