Dry edges at the end of the day to prevent 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 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 makes it easy to handle, as well as providing buoyancy on 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 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).
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 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.
POWDER STANCE ( = 60 mm setback)
The Park & Ride has a 0 mm setback to ride in both directions, but we have added extra inserts with 60 mm setback (HUGE) for powder days. The day before "Powder Alert" days, unscrew your 2 bindings and set them back 60 mm to the "POWDER STANCE" setting, and even with a small board size like the 153 Wide, the snow will rush under your tip for perfect buoyancy.
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.
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 1.76 m 153 cm wide => from 1m70 to 1m80 158 cm wide => from 1m80 to 1m90 (+85 kg)
