What is a longboard for?
As the name suggests, a longboard is longer than an ordinary skateboard, which makes it more stable overall. Its bigger, softer wheels provide good grip and acceleration, and above all a really comfortable glide, even on irregular ground. You can therefore use it for cruising or for getting around the city. As well as being fun, longboards are an eco-friendly means of transport.

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.
