What is a carving longboard for?
Carving longboards let you move forwards by pumping, i.e. without putting your feet on the ground. The board picks up speed as it angles. And with more pronounced trucks, this longboard lets you carve your turns by pushing hard on the edges. Doing so feels like surfing, and you can imitate certain tricks such as cutbacks.

How are our products tested?
Before launching a product, we put it through a series of lab tests to check its quality and sturdiness. Our Decathlon ambassadors then carry out real-life use tests to check that it meets their needs. Our ambassadors really put our products through their paces to make sure they are suitable for whatever you throw at them. This close collaboration with our ambassadors during the development process is a real sign of quality.
