Kids’ Snowboard Packages - Snowboards, Boots, and Bindings in a package for kids
L9 Sports has carefully combined sets of Kids’ Snowboards, Boots, and Bindings to help take the guesswork out of purchasing equipment. These Kids’ Snowboard Packages are guaranteed to work together, and get your child out on the slopes in record time. Plus, if you buy a kids’ snowboard package with L9, we will be happy to mount the board for you, and you will receive it ready to ride. When purchasing a kids’ snowboard package, you will need to consider the ability of the snowboarder, as well as their size and the kind of riding they hope to do with their package.
Kids’ Snowboard Bindings
Kids’ Snowboard Bindings can be adjusted using a Phillips Screwdriver in most snowboard packages. Depending on the style of riding, and whether the rider is regular (left foot in front), or goofy (right foot in front), bindings can be made to angle toward the front of the board, away from the front of the board (good for switch riding), or in any combination that feels comfortable for the rider.
Kids’ Snowboard Boots
Kids’ Snowboard boots have two major parts - a liner and a shell, although many younger children’s boots only have one part, sort of like a liner and a shell in one. This is because the limited power that they will be transferring into their boot doesn’t require two layers. Both parts have different ways to fasten them depending on the boot. Most kids’ boots use typical laces or Velcro, but there are also BOA lacing systems that use a cable connected to a dial that is easy to twist, as well as various other proprietary lacing systems. If you or your little one have a preference, make sure you check the boot description so that you will be able to get what they want.
Rider Height and Weight
When purchasing a snowboard package, it is important to take the rider’s height and weight into account. Snowboards are measured in centimeters, and generally need to be almost as tall as the rider. For beginners, it is generally recommended to size a board to somewhere just below their chin height, for intermediates, somewhere between their chin and lower lip, and for experts, anywhere above that level (expert riders usually have a length in mind based on their experience). Heavier, stronger riders will be able to ride a longer board, whereas lighter riders may have trouble initiating turns with that same board. Remember to read the descriptions to get an idea of the flex pattern, and other attributes of the snowboard package. If you are unsure about any of this, you can always ask the helpful staff here at L9 using our chat or email options.
