A word from the product manager
If you only needed one...
The Park & Ride is true to its name, it's as good in parks as all-mountain.
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 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 centering 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).
Rocker camber + standard + 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 center 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 centered Twin Tip boards, not only for riding in both directions, but also for better balance during rotations in the air and on slopes.
front width 300 mm. Center 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. Ideally with the bindings pointing downwards.
Sold as a pack with Illusion "500" bindings and freestyle-type highback
It is an Illusion 700 without the full EVA pad, with:
- 3D foam ankle strap that hugs the shoe, offering perfect support. The foam provides a tight fastening and keeps feet extremely comfortable.
- front strap in cap strap (position only on the toes) for incredible comfort and support.
- easy Turn Strap opening system so that the strap does not get caught at the opening of the shoe.

What's the right size Park & Ride for me?
In general, for Freestyle use, use a fairly short board: -20 to -25 cm. (e.g., someone measuring 5'7", can use a board between 154 and 149 cm).
_ Allows you to take turns and do tricks more easily_ Provides more stability at great speed and when landing after jumps The Park & Ride is quick to get to grips with. The 158 wide is perfect for larger builds.
152 cm => 5'4" to 5'8"
153 cm wide => from 5'6" to 5'9"
158 cm wide => from 5'9"to 6'2" (187 lb)
