For your top performance

For your personal best

Freeriding in deep snow, jumping in the fun park, or going full speed downhill – snowboarding means pure adrenaline and action. Whether you’re always looking for demanding courses or enjoy casual cruises on the slopes: you will need the right equipment to guarantee you an enjoyable time in the snow and the necessary protection against injuries in case you fall.
During skiing, your weight is equally distributed on both legs. Snowboarding, however, requires you to constantly change between frontside and backside, and therefore the relevant redistribution of forces in the flexor and extensor muscles of the legs. This means it is a very demanding activity in terms of strength, fitness, balance, and coordination.

Snowboarding equipment for fun & action with safety

Statistics show that injuries are more frequent during snowboarding than during skiing. Compared with skiing, broken legs are slightly more rare but injuries to the hands and knees are more common. The snowboarder usually falls forwards or backwards. Falls forward are stopped with the hands, meaning more bruised or fractured wrist bones. Falling onto the knees can damage the kneecap on impact.
According to accident statistics provided by Swiss Accident Insurance (SUVA 2009), those snowboarding regularly suffer from excessive strain to the knee joint, shoulder joint, and/or the upper ankle.
The type and severity of the injuries mainly depend on the person’s snowboarding skills. Compared with experienced snowboarders, for example, beginners fall forward twice as often as backward. Ankle injuries are often caused by jumps and insufficient support provided by soft boots in the area of the ankle. Get a good overview of the essential snowboarding equipment to prevent sore muscles and injuries. Find out which equipment is important, and how Bauerfeind Sports products can be of additional help.

Snowboarding equipment for your enjoyment in the snow

Your enjoyment on the slopes is heavily dependent on your snowboarding equipment. No matter if you want to learn how to snowboard or if you’re happy to hurtle down slopes covered in deep snow – with insufficient equipment you can quickly ruin your fun.

Snowboarding clothes: pants, jacket & the layer principle

The basis is proper snowboarding clothing that protects you against cold and damp, while at the same time offering maximum freedom of movement. It’s best to use the layer principle, wearing skiing underwear, then snowboarding pants, a light sweater, and your snowboarding jacket. Note: Your snowboarding jacket should be equipped with a rescue system so your friends or other helpers can find you in an emergency.

Wrist & knee protectors – preventing injuries

Wrist protectors offer protection against the dreaded injuries to the wrists. Gloves with thick padding offer additional protection. Knee protectors are also useful, protecting the kneecap as well as tendons and ligaments on impact.

Back protection – important snowboarding equipment

Falling backwards is usually cushioned by your buttocks. Luckily, they are not very sensitive to impact. Falling on your back, however, is dangerous and painful. That is why back protection must be part of your safety equipment. Falls hurt less, and you are better protected against injuries.

Helmet, boots & bindings – make sure they fit!

In addition to a cool helmet design, protection in the event of a fall is the essential selection criterion. Falling on the back of your head can result in a fractured skull, whiplash, or concussion. To ensure your snowboarding helmet provides maximum protection against impact and blows, a proper fit is essential. If the helmet is too small, uncomfortable pressure sores will develop on the skin. If it’s too big, it will move around all the time and won’t protect you properly. Your boots must also fit tightly. Reinforced hybrid boots are better protection than classic soft boots.
