So in cross-country snowboarding there are two methods: the traditional and the skate, or freestyle approach. They each require completely different units of kit. In traditional snowboarding, the ski is a bit longer. So for a skier like myself, it is about 200 centimeters lengthy
And the traditional ski requires a grip zone so from about midway up the ski to about midway down the ski they’ve a zone the place they grip wax, or kick wax, is utilized and the ski can get traction on the snow.
The poles for traditional snowboarding are barely shorter. They arrive as much as roughly shoulder peak. In skate snowboarding, or freestyle snowboarding, the ski is barely shorter. It is about 185 centimetres lengthy for a skier like myself. There is no such thing as a kick zone; the ski is glide-waxed all the best way down,
And the poles for skate snowboarding are barely longer, so they arrive as much as about chin peak on a skate skier. It is simply that straightforward.
