The One Magtek is what’s commonly referred as a “quiver killer” board. It’s designed to be ridden on every type of snow-covered terrain in existence (with the exception of urban riding) thus eliminating the need to have a quiver of boards. So, if you’re the type who would rather have one board for everything, this just might be the One for you.
SHAPE AND CAMBER
The One has a true twin shape and a twin flex pattern—it is symmetrical and has the same amount of flex in the nose and tail. In the camber department the One has Rossignol’s pride and joy: Amptek. Amptek is a camber design consisting of a section of camber between the bindings flanked by two sections of rocker that run from each binding to the tip and tail respectively. The rockered sections make the board easy to press and quick to hook into turns while the camber helps ensure stability at speeds. Another benefit of the tip and tail rocker is the ability to float in powder with minimal effort.
Aside from Amptek, the One has a few tricks up its sleeve starting with Magne Traction. Magne Traction is the game-changing tech from Mervin Manufacturing that increases the number of contact points on a snowboard from four to fourteen. More contact with the snow means better edge hold, especially on not so savory surfaces like ice.
At the center of the One is Rossignol’s Wood C/K core. Wood C/K is simply good old fashioned wood that’s bolstered with carbon and Kevlar. The result is a snappy, durable core that will maintain it’s stiffness and pop longer than a traditional wood core.
- Amptek= easy pressing, stability, pop, and float in powder.
- Magne Traction under your feet means you’ll be leaning hard into your turns on icy runs when your buddies are forced to take it easy.
- If you’re a one-board kind of rider, this board will not disappoint.
