Good to know
The choice of snowboard will depend largely on your level and whether you are passionate about riding on the piste, in the park or in the off-piste. Other important factors to be considered ...
Different types of snowboards
Snowboards, and also the snowboard gear in general, has gone through a huge evolution since the first downhill snowboards emerged. Snowboard bindings, flex, shape, durability and design are keywords that all the big snowboard brands are working with. Within the last few years, many snowboards have developed rocker and camber designs, which results in more stable and forgiving snowboards. But what is the best snowboard for you to buy?
A twin-tip snowboard is well-suited for riding in parks and for doing tricks, but it is also a fun type of snowboard for playful trips on the piste. The tip and tail are 100% alike and the bindings are centred, so it is equally easy to ride forward and backward and land your tricks.
All mountain snowboard
An all mountain snowboard is - like the name implies - well-suited for use all around the mountain. The shape looks like that of twin tip snowboard, but the bindings, flex and balance point is moved a bit back on the snowboard. This type of snowboard is a very good purchase for most people because it can be used both on the piste, in the park and on the off-piste.
This type of snowboard is built for deep and soft powder snow on the off-piste. The shape of a freeride or backcountry snowboard looks at times a lot like a surfboard. The board is quite wide which makes it easier to stay on the top of the surface of the deep snow.
