Rossignol Experience Snowboard – 2011
This is the Rossignol Experience free ride snowboard for the advanced to expert rider. This board comes in midwide widths and it is team approved. The directional shape is going to keep your nose above the powder because the nose is a little bit longer than the tail. The Amptek profile is unique because there is a slight camber in between the bindings. It’s actually 1.5 mm of height against the flat ground and underneath the bindings, the tail and the nose will gradually rock up.
If you’ll look down its edge you’ll see it has Magne Traction; that means there are seven points of contact, which is similar to serrated knife blade. There’s more surface area on the edge than compared to a classic radial sidecut, a quadratic, or anything of that sort.
It’s a stiff board. The nose and tail are going to be a rating of about “9″, the midsection is going to be a rating of “10.” You can see the core through the clear top sheet. The core is a THC Torsion Box base with carbon and Kevlar stringers. You can see the stringers run pretty much from tip to tail on this board. All in all this is another great snowboard from Rossignol.
The base is going to be very fast. It’s a 7500 sintered base. You will want to keep it waxed; it’s going to absorb a lot of wax. It’s going to be very fast. When you are hauling down the mountain it’s best to outrun avalanches with a 7500 sintered base. The artist collection that did the graphic is called Hydro 74. This is an all-mountain snowboard for the advanced to expert rider, the Rossignol The Experience.
