Wipe the edges at the end of the day so they don't rust. Ideally, wax every 5 outings. Storing for the summer: keep away from sunlight, you can leave your bindings on the board.

Features of the product

A word from the product manager
If you had to choose just 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. Its standard camber gives it 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 back board sidecuts are completely symmetrical, offering perfect centring and symmetry for riding in both directions in the same way. The Twin Tip shape also offers total balance when turning (on the ground, in the air).
Standard camber + 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 constraint, 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 flex is the stiffness of the board between the front and rear. The flex of the Park & Ride is about 3/5, which is average and versatile. It offers predictable handling when cutting corners and is forgiving of edge mistakes.
Medium and versatile torsion
The torsion, i.e. the torsional stiffness of the board between the feet, is about 3/5 on the Park & Ride 500, 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 setback = 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

When should I wax my snowboard?
Wed'ze boards leave the factory waxed. They then require regular maintenance, like all snowboards and skis: 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, leaving the wax on to protect the base throughout the summer
What's the right size Park & Ride for me?
For freestyle, you can use quite a short board: - 20 to -25 cm (for example, someone measuring 1 m 74 can use a board between 154 and 149 cm). Choosing a shorter board will make it easier to turn and do tricks. Choosing a longer one will increase stability at high speeds and on landing after jumps. Choose quite a short Park & Ride. The 158 Wide is perfect for larger builds. 152 cm => 1.67 to 1.77 m 153 cm WIDE => 1 m 68 to 1 m 78 158 cm WIDE => 1 m 78 to 1 m 90 (min 85 kg)
What is the snowboard width?
A "Wide" board is a board that is wider than normal, to prevent "large" feet from touching the snow when turning a little too sharply and making you fall. From size 10 upwards, it is best to choose a "Wide" board. The width of the board is measured at its centre. At Decathlon, we have defined them as follows: - up to 250mm : normal board - 251 to 259 mm: medium wide - above 260 mm: Wide

    Spokojenost

    Tento snowboard mě velmi mile překvapil. Podrží v oblouku, ale zároveň je dostatečně měkký na různé blbosti. Nastavení na freeride zatím nemám otestované.

    Super für Anfänger auch wenn die Piste mal nicht o

    Habe das Board nun 2x getestet. Der Schnee wurde mit der Zeit matschig und hügelig. Das Board hat sich nicht verkantet und ich konnte noch super fahren. Bin ein blutiger Anfänger.

    Tabla mejor que las fijaciones

    La tabla es pesada, pero por pista resulta bastante manejable.
    Para mi gusto lo peor son las fijaciones, se abren en mitad de las bajadas, con el consiguiente peligro.
    Casi es preferible comprar la tabla suelta y unas fijaciones en condiciones en otro sitio.
