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.
