Rossignol JDub Review

2011 Rossignol  JDub MagTek Snowboard

Rossignol Snowboards, Snowboard Boots, Bindings, Skis, Ski Boots, BindingsThis is a Rossignol freestyle-oriented JDub MagTek Snowboard. This board is for the intermediate to expert rider. The stance is going to be set back just a touch, but the nose and the tail are going to be the exact same shape. It has a freestyle Amptek profile. There’s 1.5 millimeters of height in the camber that is in between the feet. Underneath the feet to the nose and the tail, the board is going to rock up. If you were going to look down this edge, you would notice the Magne Traction that is similar to a serrated knife blade. The Magne Traction has more surface area than a single side cut radius—meaning for a better bite on hard packed and iced conditions.

 

 

This board is going to be a little bit different than your average freestyle snowboard. It has a interesting flex pattern. The nose is going to have the flex of a 9, the mid-section is going to have a flex of 8, and the tail is going to have a flex of about a 10. So it’s pretty stiff overall. The core is a twin wood 3 carbon Kevlar core with dual torsion [boxes]. You’ll see through the clear top sheet the carbon Kevlar inserts that run from tip to tail, making this board very stiff and very responsive. It’ll help you get a lot of pop when you need to get onto that rail. The centered 4400 base pops quite well because of the great die cut that it has on it. It’s going to stay fast all season long, and it’s going to absorb a lot of wax. This, my friends, is the Rossignol JDub Snowboard. Unique nose and tail shape for the intermediate to expert snowboarder.
