For children, snowboarding is about freedom and the joy of movement. Skiing down slopes and various obstacles is great fun, which clearly belongs to winter. However, how to deal with the selection of suitable snowboard equipment for small riders? When it comes to sports equipment, children have their needs, they want functional shapes, colorful modern design and a great fun ride. In the same way, parents mainly demand safety, comfort, practicality and ease of control and use for their little athletes. We will advise you how to do it. We asked Roman Blažek, a manufacturer of children's sports equipment, about the basic steps in choosing snowboard equipment. How to choose a suitable children's snowboard and how to choose the right length? There is a simple rule of thumb. The length of the board should be between the mouth and the nose, soft in flex, wide enough with light weight. Flat boards are especially suitable for small riders. What are the most common mistakes and what to avoid when choosing? I would summarize everything in a few points: - choosing a board that is too short - choice of hard board - the small rider then cannot step on the board and has difficulty controlling it How important is the choice of bindings and shoes in the actual selection? Of course, compatibility comes first, everything fits: shoes, bindings. I would draw attention to binding a sufficiently large and easy-to-operate pump that ensures optimal and at the same time sufficient control of clamping. As for shoes, it is primarily about the ergonomics of the child's foot, which the shoes should reflect. Thermal comfort. Last but not least, easy to put on, so that the child can do everything by himself. Beany products fulfill all this. Do you deliver to buy snowboard sets? Yes, in addition to the optimal price/performance ratio, it is about the already mentioned compatibility. The parent does not have to deal with the complicated issue of whether shoes with laces fit. In the case of purchasing a set, a suitable pairing of products is guaranteed. And you will also save time and money.
