A word from the product manager

We wanted to create a versatile board for people not attracted to the park. This board is adapted to a practice on track but also off-track with ease. And enjoyable! It was prototyped 100% in our design center, Mountain Store Passy in Haute-Savoie, before being tested in stations near our offices throughout its development.

Program/terrain

The Serenity 500 is the ultimate All Mountain board: 50% track and 50% off-piste. You go everywhere, on all snow, on track, off-piste, and powder, of course. Do not use in parks: it is not intended for use on modules or for backward riding.

Directional snowboard

The shape of the board is directional, i.e. the board has a nose and tail. It is not symmetrical; the back of the board is slightly narrower than the front, the bindings and the contact points of the snowboard (setback) are a bit behind. A directional shape offers better grip when cornering, better trajectory management and better recovery when exiting a turn.

Standard camber + rocker

We keep all the advantages of the classic camber (thanks to the elasticity of the board, a classic camber acts as a spring to give grip on all the snow, the dynamism in edge-to-edge passage and recovery output turnaround) with in addition those of the rocker (under stress, the contact points of the board on the snow come closer and the board becomes more manageable). The rocker elongates and raises the nose so that it can glide better over powder.

Flex medium and versatile

The flex is the stiffness of the board between the front and rear. The flex of the Serenity 500 is about 3/5, which is medium and versatile. It brings a healthy behavior in cut corners but also a tolerance to edge errors.

Versatile and medium torsion

The torsion, stiffness of the board in torsion between the feet, is about 3/5 on the Serenity 500, which is stiff enough for a good behavior in curve, of the restart at the end of the turn and the nervousness in passage from square to square. This also gives the board a confirmed expert level while remaining very accessible physically.

Setback 15 mm

The setback is when the board’s compression points with the snow are not symmetrical in relation to the center of the board, but set back toward the rear. The bindings are also set back toward the rear by the same distance. 15 mm setback = significant decline for directional boards. It provides better grip in turns and buoyancy in powder snow because the weight is on the tail of the board, which naturally raises the nose.

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”

Which size to choose for my serenity 500?

In All Mountain, one chooses -6″ or -8″ (for example, someone of 5’8″ (68″) can take a board between 60.6″ and 62.6″). As there is rocker on the Serenity, you can take it a little bigger. Choosing smaller makes things easier. This is also advised for people who are light for their height. Choosing bigger offers greater stability at high speed. 57.9″ (147 cm): 5’3″ to 5’6″ 59.8″: 5’5″ to 5’8″ 61.2″: 5’7″ to 5’10”

Sliding quality: Sintered sole

The soles are made of polyethylene but according to 2 different technical processes: – extruded base, with a certain density of polyethylene – a sintered base, with a higher density of polyethylene (fewer holes, more PE) A sintered base is the Rolls-Royce of bases. The slide is really fantastic.

Origin

Imported

Storage instructions

Dry edges at the end of the day to prevent rust. Ideally, wax every 5 outings. Storing for the summer: keep away from sunlight, you can leave your bindings on the board.
