I) How to choose your snowboard set?
One rider, one board, tons of options : you have to choose your set according to your level, your style and your needs. It is important to know this before buying.
1) Define your level :
Beginner - Intermediate : Occasional rider still learning the basics. You ride only on piste and make technical mistakes.
Advanced : You ride regularly and feel comfortable on any kinds of terrain. You ride flawlessly with very few mistakes.
Expert : Physical and agressive rider, you have a great technique and ride easily anywhere on the mountain.
2) Define your style:
Freeride : Directional board designed for riding on soft and fresh snow but that works very well on piste or groomed snow.
Freeride All-mountain : The board is designed for piste riding, it features a directional shape and allows powder forays.
Freestyle All-mountain : Freestyle-oriented all-terrain board. Its profile and shape make it perform everywhere on the mountain.
Freestyle : Primarily intended for park and street use, the board is short and light, generally softer than average. It allows easy switch riding.
100% Powder : Board designed to evolve in virgin snow. Very easy to handle, it offers incredible sensations. Ideal to play between the fir trees and enjoy the days of big conditions.
II) Bindings included in packages
The bindings we include in our snowboard packages are carefully selected according to the board's category and level. For one board, we offer one or more binding options allowing you to custom your package and find the right match. Unlike our ski packages, Glisshop.co.uk does not mount the bindings on snowboards. For more details about mounting and fitting bindings, please visit our Binding menu on our website.
