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 rear 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
We keep all the advantages of the classic camber (thanks to the elasticity of the board, a classic camber acts as a spring to give grip on all the snow, the dynamism in edge-to-edge passage and recovery output turnaround) with in addition those of the rocker (under stress, the contact points of the board on the snow come closer and the board becomes more manageable). The rocker elongates and raises the nose so that it can glide better over powder.
Flex medium and versatile
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 brings a healthy behavior in cut corners but also a tolerance to edge errors.
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, 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.

When do I wax my snowboard?
Wed'ze boards are supplied already waxed. They require regular maintenance just like all snowboards and skis: ideally requires waxing 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 and allow the wax to penetrate into the base throughout the summer"
What's the right size Park & Ride for me?
In Freestyle, use a fairly short board: - 20 to -25 cm (for example, someone measuring 1 m 74 can use a board between 154 and 149 cm). Taking a smaller board makes rotations and figures easier. Taking a bigger board allows you to be more stable at high speed and on landing. 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 which is wider than the average so that "big" feet do not touch the snow when taking a strong turn and makes you fall. Select a "Wide" board if you take size 10, and over. "Wide" is the width of the board at the 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.
