Types of Retail Snowboards and Equipment

Snowboarding is an extremely popular sport in the United States and all over the world. To have a better, more comprehensive understanding of the sport, we must first understand the types of equipment and gear that are available for purchase in ski and snowboarding retail shops today.

  • Snowboard - A snowboard is a long flat board, curved up at both ends. Attached to the board are fixed bindings into which, the rider straps his or her boots. The bottom surface of the board is slick, oftentimes waxed to make it even slicker.
  • Binding - Bindings are fixed to the snowboard. They can be adjusted depending upon the rider's comfort and stance. The rider steps into the binding and straps his or her feet tightly into them.
  • Helmet - Whether a person prefers to ski or snowboard, a protective helmet is vital to the safety of the rider or skier. Traumatic brain injuries can be prevented simply by wearing a helmet designed specifically for skiing or riding.
  • Boots - Whether skiing or riding, boots are a vital component in either sport. With ski boots the boots are very stiff, the outside shell a hard plastic. The interior of the boot is padded for comfort and warmth. Conversely, the snowboarding boot is a little more flexible. The outside shell is made of softer, water repellent nylon, soft plastic, and sometimes, leather. Like ski boots, the inside is padded for warmth and comfort.
  • General Riding Gear - In addition to a protective helmet, other equipment available in any given ski or snowboarding retail shop today include clothing such as riding or ski pants, riding pants are typically looser than ski pants, goggles, gloves or mittens, and warm jackets. Bags made specifically to carry the oftentimes bulky equipment associated with snowboarding or skiing are also available for purchase.
