Description: Rossignol XV Magtek Wide Snowboard 168

The all-new XV MAGTEK is Xavier de le Rue's big-mountain brainchild, designed for attacking the biggest and boldest lines. AmpTek All-Mountain combines traditional camber between the inserts with moderate tip and tail rocker for increased stability, versatility and float. Magne-Traction 7M delivers continuous tip-to-tail edge hold, enhancing control in the gnarliest conditions. Super-stiff up front, the XV drives through the most challenging snow, with a nimble, playful tail for maneuvering tight spots. With CBF, the XV flows smooth edge-to-edge and delivers incredible power, helping Xav push the boundaries of big-mountain riding.

Key Features of the Rossignol XV Magtek Wide Snowboard:
  • AmpTek All-Mountain Rocker
  • Magne-Traction Sidecut 7M

Rick W asked: How does this board stack up to lib's Darker series in terms of east coast on-piste conditions (Read: ice-powder-slush all in one run)? Also, is the stiffness an issue at lower speeds in terms of catchiness? I have young ones and would bring a different board for those rare days with the kids when my wife doesn't also come along and therefore I'm not free to be dad of the year and take off on everybody...

Ross c: I test rode both of them in Utah. It wasn't a great day of snow, had some icy patches and some softer stuff at lower elevations.

i thought this one was better at cruising through everything. Whether it was nice packed snow, lumpy stuff, or ice, it cruised through. The Darker series was nice and had some good pop, but I didn't feel it had the same ability to plow through as much

I didn't notice any problems with it when moving slow (through congested areas, etc.), but most of the time on the board I was really testing it hard to see if it could hold up (it did). I bet it wouldn't be the easiest board to coast around on slowly, as it is pretty stiff and loves going fast, but its an awesome board.

Hope this helps

Matt GStaff: Hey Rick,

The Rossignol XV is one of the stiffest big mountain boards around. You literally have to ride this board as fast as you can to get it to turn.

The Lib Tech Darker Series will be a better all mountain board to get away with.
