Rossignol Retox Snowboards
David at The House talking about one of my favorite snowboards from Rossi- the Rossignol Retox snowboard. We’re looking at true twin madness here; it’s going to work good for an all mountain rider for like say an entry level to an intermediate range, and then for a freestyle park guy from like entry level to advance. Very versatile shaping and performance on this one.
Flex is going to be a little bit more than their base twins. You’re probably looking to rock around like a 4 or 5 which kind of gives it that all mountain versatility that I mentioned before. From there we’ll go into the specific features about it. First off we got a lightweight tip to tail wood core. Definitely going to be really lively. It’s going to be durable as far as maintaining its flex. Really poppy as well. This one will have kind of a matte gloss detail to the top sheet that you might not be able to see- but looks cool in person. The graphic that you can obviously see is killing it. Good stuff. Definitely good collage rocking on this one.
From there, traditional camber, still works great, it definitely has its pros over the reverse camber trend going on now. Sidewall construction: really good grip on icy hard pack terrain. That’s paired up with this progressive side cut that is going to be really easy at turn initiation and then really powerful arcing through the turns, hooks up on icy hard pack terrain a little bit better.
From there you roll into a sintered base. It actually has the sublimated and die-cut mixed together. Kind of an extra special graphic treatment on this one. From there like I said it’s a true twin super versatile high end sintered base. Just a really, real, good all terrain freestyle deck. It does have the blunt nose and tail to reduce the swing weight on it too. Give it a little bit of a different shape, look to it. This snowboard wins tons of reviews. The Rossignal Retox snowboard-give it a spin.
1907-2007. Rossignol is 100 years old. 100 years during which we have always been thrilled by the mountains, 100 years of passionate commitment, 100 years in which we have lived our professional skills to the full.
Icon of the past, symbol of the present, Rossignol, inspired by our roots and our exceptional historical heritage, has built the future every day. Another milestone in our brand's development is that we now have developed an authentically modern Mountain life style, with Hard and Soft goods for the winter and the summertime too.
Tomorrow, Rossignol will be entering into yet another new stage in its brand development, evolving from a snowsport-specific brand, to a Mountain Lifestyle Brand. Rossignol's new phase includes product design and development for all year-round mountain sports and culture, and the lifestyle that goes along with this. A new Rossignol, with more lifestyle focus than ever before, strongly supports Rossignol's branding as a Pure Mountain Company. This is a strong and universal message, which expresses a clear ambition: to become the brand for everyone who shares Rossignol's passion for the mountain lifestyle.
In short, we aim to be known as the most progressive and authentic mountain brand on the market. We live for the mountains, because we need to experience the mountains every day of every year. Begin with the world's best athletes. Listen to them. Outfit them. Make them better.
Before, it was only about product and specs and design. And it still is, but now our innovations have a pulse, a human desire, and a meaning. Under our technology beats a heart. We use this expertise to create technical gear to do the stuff we love to do. Then we use the same intensity to create all that is casual. Because that's how we live in the mountains: through product that enhances the lifestyle.
We are a fundamental ingredient of the lifestyle. We are part of the lexicon. Not just the most respected brand, but a word that is synonymous with great memories, epic adventures and incredible friends. And yes, anyone can say they're an authentic mountain sports lifestyle brand. We can prove it.
With our athlete-based R&D, our leading technology and our real connection to the mountains. To most, the mountains are a part of the environment. Not for us. For us, the mountains are the blood that flows in our veins. This is the place where we become who we were meant to be. Here the air is different. Cleaner, cooler, fresher. It enables a sense of freedom and space that opens the mind and encourages adventure. And it challenges us to accomplish the unimaginable. The mountains give us a sense of place within a complex space. They deliver energy and inspire. Here we find ourselves. And whether it's dropping a cornice, grinding rails, capturing first tracks or simply climbing to the top, these mountains feed those who love them.
Rossignol designs and manufacture Skis, Bindings, Skiboots (Alpine and Nordic), Snowboards, Technical Equipment, and develops Softgoods Collections for all seasons. Products that are made by people committed to perfection, and who understand what the mountain requires. Excellent value, high reliability, quality, attractive design.
