A word from the product manager
The Endzone 400 Jib board is the most playful in the range. We wanted it to be easy to handle but also be a freestyle board: playful, easy to handle, fun..! Don't hesitate to tell us what you think in the customer comments.
The Endzone 400 Jib grips less on groomed slopes than the Park & Ride, but it's very playful in parks, on rail courses as well as jump courses. On-piste, it's easy to use in tight turns and offers a pretext for playing at the edges of slopes. With its flat camber with rocker and flexible torsion between the feet, it is suitable for freestylers with a very good level and real beginners interested in freestyle.
Twin Tip snowboard
It is a Twin Tip shaped snowboard. The board's front and rear sidecuts are completely symmetrical, offering perfect centring 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).
Flat camber + rocker
A flat camber is the ideal compromise between a standard camber, which offers edge grip and energy response, and a reverse camber, which is good for handling rotations but offers relatively little edge grip. It is ideal for park freestylers and beginners because:
- the flat camber improves stability, on modules and groomed slopes;
- the rocker makes it more forgiving on parks and groomed slopes, because the 4 corners of the board don't touch the snow when the board is flat.
Supple, forgiving flex
Flex, stiffness of the board between the front and rear.
The flex of the Endzone 400 Jib is about 2/5, which is supple and forgiving. This type of flex is very homogeneous from the front tip (nose) to the rear tip (tail), offering very predictable cornering with no surprises. This flex, which is designed for freestyle use, also allows you to have fun on the flat (ollies, nollies, butter, nose roll, etc.). It is also suitable for beginner snowboarders.
Supple, forgiving torsion
The flex, i.e. the torsional stiffness of the board between the feet, is about 2/5 on the Endzone 400 Jib, making it easy to handle, easy to turn and forgiving of edge mistakes. Supple torsion enables freedom of movement between the feet. It is important for beginners: because edging mistakes are forgiven. The supple torsion is also suited to freestyle/jib/flat use.
Setback 0 mm
The setback is when the board's compression points with the snow are not symmetrical in relation to the centre of the board, but set back towards the rear. The bindings are also set back towards the rear by the same distance.
0 mm setback, these are fully centred Twin Tip boards, not only for riding in both directions, but also for better balance during rotations in the air and on slopes.

When do I wax my snowboard?
Wed'ze boards are supplied already waxed.
They require regular maintenance just like all snowboards and skis: ideally requires waxing 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 and allow the wax to penetrate into the base throughout the summer"
What's the right size Endzone 400 Jib for me?
In Freestyle, use a fairly short board: -20 to 25 cm (e.g., someone measuring 1m74 can use a board between 154 and 149 cm).
Choose smaller for easier rotations and tricks. Choosing bigger gives greater stability at high speed and when landing jumps.
142 cm => 1m57 to 1m67 (Size only on the endzone 500 model - 85131138)
146 cm => 1m60 to 1m71
151 cm => 1m69 to 1m76
156 cm WIDE => from 1m74 to 1m81
What is Wide in terms of the snowboard?
A "Wide" board is a board which is wider than the average so that "big" feet do not touch the snow when taking a strong turn and makes you fall.
Select a "Wide" board if you take size 10, and over.
"Wide" is the width of the board at the centre. At Décathlon, we have defined:
- up to 250 mm: standard board - from 251 mm to 259 mm: Mid Wide
- from 260 mm: Wide
