What is a longboard for?
Longboards are longer than ordinary skateboards. Their wheels are bigger and softer, making them more comfortable to ride. It's easier to pick up speed and you don't notice bumps as much because the soft wheels absorb vibrations. Basically, it's the perfect skateboard for short journeys around town and for casual rides. And as well as being fun, it's an eco-friendly means of transport.

How are our products tested?
Before launching a product, we put it through a series of lab tests to check its quality and sturdiness. Our Decathlon ambassadors then carry out real-life use tests to check that it meets their needs. Our ambassadors really put our products through their paces to make sure they are suitable for whatever you throw at them. This close collaboration with our ambassadors during the development process is a real sign of quality.
