60 yrs old. Been riding 20+ yrs. groomers and powder, no air, no trees. 6'3" 210-215lbs size 12 with feet angled forward 20 deg. Looking at the Rossi Krypto Magtek 163 or the Ride Slackcountry 164. Moving on from an old Santa Cruz 168 XD wide. Thoughts? Can I get by without a wide board due to my foot angle?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Rossignol Krypto Magtek Snowboard is a great board, but with size 12 feel get the Wide option. Check it out HERE:

The 164cm Ride Slackcoutry Snowboard has a waist width that can accommodate your boot size, 25.8cm, but it will be a MUCH more responsive and aggressive that your Santa Cruz.

You might want to check out the 163cm Ride Wild Life Wide Snowboard HERE:
What size would you recomment for a 6' 185lb rider? Width not an issue--size 9s.
A shopper on Oct 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Well it depends. Where do you usually ride? East/West Coast? What would you consider your level to be beginner/intermediate/expert? What type of riding do you prefer?
I am 5'9" and weigh 190lbs. What size board should I be riding? I ride groomers and powder
Jesus F on Jan 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm 6' and 190lbs. I ride a 156 for all mountain. If I were riding powder only I'd ride a 159. If I was just riding park I'd ride a 152. So with your difference in height I would ride maybe a cm or two shorter than me. I think the weight has most to do with how big the board should be. You can vary the stance when you're shorter, but you'll still need the same length to stay afloat.
What's different on this model vs the 2015-16 or 2016-2017?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think this one is a bit more stiff compared to newer models...
I’m still struggling as to whether I should buy this Krypto or the new one. I have this board and love it. But I want both my son & I to have one so we no longer need to share. My son weights 150 is 33 and in great shape. I’m about 5’8” and 165lbs. What should we do? Thanks for your input. Dave
Dave N on Jan 12, 2016

there is little difference between the Krypto you have and this season's model. The 2016 is just a tad softer in flex and features different graphics. Other than that, they are very similar. As to board size, I would suggest the 156 .

Hello, from which season this is?
Eze M on Jan 30, 2017
This is the 2013 version of the Krypto.
Looking for all Mtn snowboard. I'm 49 yr old guy, 6-2 190 lbs, fit, intermediate rider, I love blue runs, will ride black, hate moguls, 75% groomers, 25% powder around the not too tight trees, occasional trip thru the intermediate park at mammoth. Currently riding a K2 169 cm that is 12 yrs old. 2 yrs old model is ok, under $300 for sure. Recommendations ??
A shopper on Feb 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You hit the nail on the head with the Rossignol Krypto Magtek Snowboard.
What are some of the differences between the Rossignol Krypto Magtek Snowboard and the Rossignol Templar Magtek Snowboard. I rode the Rossignol Templar Magtek Snowboard in Park City last season and loved it. I am a beginner. The Krypto seems like a great value. Would you recommend me buying this board? Also I am purchasing the GNU Weird bindings. Do those binding go well with the Krypto?
Jesus F on Jan 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are very similar boards. The Krypto will be a little stiffer than the Templar, and hit groomers/powder better. It's a solid board. The GNU Weird's will work great on it.
what year board is this? Thanks Dave
Dave N on Jan 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Dave! It is from 2013!
I am 6ft 1in and weigh 185 pounds and would consider myself somewhere between intermediate and expert. I'm in the east coast in South Western Pennsylvania on only groomed runs. I am not hitting any jumps, rails, boxes, or any terrain features. I am buying it purely for carving and bombing groomed runs. I don't know whether to get the 159cm or the 163cm. Could someone help me out?
Tom W on Jan 1, 2016

Either board is great but I would recommend the 163cm board. Boarders who prefer more all mountain riding tend to go with a longer board. Depending on your age, the longer board will last you for years and years to come.
Do you ship to the uk.? Is it delivered before Christmas. If not, where else could I buy it?
Elizabeth L on Dec 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we do not ship Rossignol items internationally. Please check out our international shipping page at for more information.

My son is 6'6" tall 200 lbs is the 167 Krypto magtec the right board for him he is an intermediate to advance we live in Utah lots of powder?
Scott M on Nov 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Good Day Scott,
This Krypto Magtek Snowboard, though not a powder specific board, will be a great all mountain and freestyle deck. As he is tall he could actually ride the 167 board... though weight wise Rossignol suggests the 163cm length would be better. What size show does he wear? If he is over 11.5 Men's shoes size he will really need a Wide snowboard.
Hello, I've been doing a lot of research on the internet as I search for a new snowboard. I've deemed that the Krypto Magtek hits all the right buttons for me - the Magne Traction, rocker/camber/rocker all seem to be the magic combo. I'm in my mid 40's, but still like to play in the powder in the trees, yet cruise the groomers and open the throttle on the groomers, as well as just kick back and take it easy! I'd consider myself to be 'advanced' as far as boarding goes, and I am 6'-0", and 205 lbs - my shoesize is 10.5, but I'm using a size 11 boot. I'm on the fence about getting the 159 Krypto, or the 163 Krypto (or, even the 164 mid-wide?). I'm thinking either will be fine, but I'm worried that I might be outside the weight range of the 159cm krypto (rossignol has the max wt for the 159 @ 80kg/175lbs). I'm also a bit hesitant on a 163cm length board - I do like to thread the needle thru the trees n' powder. Do you believe there's a noticeable difference in handling when in the tight stuff? I'm currently on a 158cm burton malolo, and I do sometimes feel it's a bit short when hammering the groomers (and I do sometimes graze my boots when carving), but it sure is fun in the powder and the trees. My wife says I'm hyper-analyzing this, but I can't help myself, so I eagerly await your recommendations! thanks!
Scott S on Jan 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I went with the 163 and love it for the powder & groomers. Normal size 10.5 boots have no problem with toe drag. The 163 will be easier to control in the trees than the 164 mid wide. Given height and weight I personally think the 163 will be easier to control in powder etc than a shorter board. Go for it dude!
6' 185 lbs and relatively experienced, what size would you recommend? The effective edge seems pretty short.
A shopper on Oct 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The 159cm Rossignol Krypto Magtek Snowboard will be the best size for you. The effective edge length is the length of the camber section no including the rockered nose/tail section.
I'm size 12. Would I be okay not getting a wide snowboard?
mark n on Nov 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hello Mark, with a size 12 I would recommend getting a Krypto Midwide. This will help with eliminating toe and heel drag. Thank you.
