Product Info

The one that changed the game. The original Rossignol Angus Snowboard proved rocker wasn’t just for powder by winning Transworld’s Good Wood and Snowboarder’s Best of Test awards in the Best All-Mountain category. The new and beefier 2012 Rossignol Angus Snowboard with AmpTek All-Mountain camber technology means that this board can rail on man-made hardpack and float effortlessly in the lightest pow on earth. Early rise tip for absorption, positive camber between the feet for punch, carbon for explosive pop, Kevlar® for the hard landings, and a sintered base for durability and speed.

Product Details

Rocker Type

AmpTek All-Mountain 60% rocker / 40% camber for more control and stability. Patented AmpTek technology integrates reversed camber tips into a regular cambered board (between the feet), extending the sidecut radius to go all the way to the tip kicks so that this amber-to-reversed-camber construction guarantees faster transitions, more pop, smoother landings, increased floatation, more grip, more edge pressure and more control. AmpTek All Mountain tech is especially nimble in the powder.

Flex

Flex Rating – 7 (1 Stiffest – 10 Softest)

Construction and Core

The Wood C/K core combines Rossignol’s standard 100% wood core with carbon and Kevlar® fibers that give punch and durability for an outstanding performance during park sessions and all terrain riding.

The progressive radius provides a short radius between the feet that gets longer towards the nose and tail for incredible edge grip and explosive power when you exit your turn.

Shape

This all mountain freestyle board’s directional twin shape provides a perfectly symmetrical nose and tail, but with inserts that are located 1 to 2cms towards the back. It is slightly directional for more versatility but you can still easily adjust your stance to twin if needed. The stiffer flex rating of 7 also gives you plenty of pop and response.

    Comments about Rossignol Angus Snowboard 2012:

    I ordered a 2011 Angus 158 mid-wide (6'0", 180 lbs, US 10 boot) from Evo late last summer. I understand that the 2012 Angus is no different from the 2011 except for graphics. Along with my Angus I bought a pair of Flow the Five bindings, also from Evo. Got to ride my Angus with Flow bindings last week. The Angus lived up to all the good reviews I found on the internet, that led me to buy it in the first place. Extremely versatile board. Floats like a dream in pow (6-12" deep) even though I had my stance centered. Even though this is a directional board, I didn't feel any difference riding regular or switch. It behaved more like a true twin in that respect. Buttered and pressed much better than my ooold camber board but that's to be expected. Very flexible in the tips, yet very stable and forgiving, in the chop and chunder.

    This is my first experience on anything other than traditional camber. Given the camrock profile of this board, the transition was almost non-existent. One thing I noticed right away was the forgiving and catch free nature of the board, yet a camber-like ride and feel - great for flat basing or getting off of lifts without being squirly.

    This board is much more responsive and easy to turn than my old camber stick. As I continued to ride this board for days, two words kept coming to mind - CONSISTENT and PREDICTABLE. Its behavior was very linear - it did more or less of whatever it did before, the harder you pushed the board. This was very comforting. The edges held really well on icy blues and blacks without being catchy.

    The one thing that I found was that I did not have the same ability to carve or make dynamic carved turns like my old camber board. Going from edge to edge really quick, it seemed like I was able to make dynamic skidded turns, where with my old board they'd be dynamic carves. I don't think this is a drawback of the board. I'm still learning to adjust my ride style to fully exploit the board's strengths.

    This is a GREAT all mountain freestyle type of board that can can bomb groomed blues and blacks with abandon all day long, if you so prefer. On a side note, my Flows match up with the board really well. Nothing like strapping in on the chair and riding away like a skier :)!

    I'm kinda surprised that for all the good press that this board has gotten over the past couple of years, there aren't more reviews for this board here.

      Comments about Rossignol Angus Snowboard 2012:

      I just started snowboarding this year and didnt want anything outrageous, saw this board for a great price and picked it up.

      Thought I would tear this thing apart with going over jibs and running ino stuff and just constant abuse being put on it, I was real wrong, these thing can handle anything. I've seen three competitor boards this year that my friends got turn to doo doo, and one even delaminated after 35 days on the mountain.

      This thing is light and makes doing jumps easy and doesnt feel like you have a bag of bricks on your feet. Makes for really long days on the mountain.

      Got up to 57mph on this bad boy and if it wouldnt have been for fear, this thing wouldve let me keep going. This board is fast and has the catch free rocker, so even when youre bombing it down the mountain, theres a small sense of security.

      Overall, really good board, would get it again every single time.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was awesome and faster than expected. Never once have I had an issue with EVO.

        Got it a week before my trip to Tahoe. Rode it for 2 days on the mountains. I'm 5'7, 155lbs and although you would think the board's length is too long for me, I had no problem controlling it. With its rocker/camber mix, the board was easy to carve with but also very stable. I had no problem with maintaining speed to get past the flat areas either. All in all, I'm very satisfied with my purchase and would buy it again.

            Comments about Rossignol Angus Snowboard 2012:

            I bought this board on sale after my beloved One Mag flew off an unlocked roof rack at highway speeds. Bummer.
            This board is faster than my One Mag ever was, probably due to the different base. The banana shaped camber makes for easy turning and it floats well in pow.
            I don't know why Rossi didn't include magne-traction on this board. That is the only change I would make other than the ludicrous graphics. Looks horrible, rides great!
            If Rossi put Mag on this board, I'd rate it even better than the One Mag.

                Bought this for a friend who is a strong advancing beginner, and it was the perfect choice. Easy to ride, stable at speed and super maneuverable. He hyped it up all day, and I was thinking it can't be all that. Then I rode it, and yeah, its was all that. Just a very well rounded deck, do it all!

                The board is really nice and smooth. It has good pop but is a little stiff when trying to manual or press. A little hard to maneuver in the trees. It's a good and enjoyable ride. I would recommend to any intermediate or advanced rider.

                  As the description says, this board is perfect for railing on hardpack and floating in powder. I just got back from a 5 day trip to Jackson Hole and it performed flawlessly in all conditions. First few days was groomers/hardpack (no bueno) and it held an edge like it was on rails. We got about 10in of fresh on the 3rd day and it floated perfectly in the good stuff. Now that I've ridden it and fallen in love, I wont change boards for years.

                    Overall a nice board to progress with. Lots of pop and flex. Great in powder and hard pack although at high speeds it will not respond as well as a stiffer board (as expected) and ice is just a disaster (as with most boards). I guess this would be all mountain but I think its better for park and powder.

                      Rode the board for my first time on a 18" powder day. The board ripped, nose was up, turns were flawless. Towards the end of the day when all the snow was eaten up and choppy this was making effortless turns on this type of snow. Took the board for a long bump run and it seemed the swing wieght and rebound/flex was just right for this stuff. The only drawback i have had on this board is when riding steep groomers there is no carving. Wich it had a 1/2 inch of camber between the feet instead of 1mm for carving ability. The pre-load and flex for ollies and jumps is good. I liked this board so much i jumped online to buy another at the price i found on EVO but they were all out of 159's.

                        This board is fun all over the mountain. The rocker gives it a playful flex and makes the sidecut really grip when you need it. I rode this at breakneck speed on groomers and it destroys, but through crud it gets unstable. It is everything I could ask for for the type of deck it is: fun, poppy, flexible where it counts, and floats in the deep deep without having to leanback-ladyshack. The graphics are sub-par on this particular year's board, but since it was from a previous season I got a FANTASTIC price on it.

                          This is my first non all camber stick. It has camber between the feet then rocker from the bindings on tip and tail. I had some light powder and it definatly felt different in a good way. It seemed to float better. It butters pretty good too. I really don't have any complaints about this board. The 9500 sintered base flys after a couple hot waxes. I was going way farther than anyone in the flats, I was riding with or even seen when I was out. I got the board this year from Evo for next to nothing. It was worth every penny in my opinion.

                            i found it to be perfect for me, it rides easily and i got use to my new board in just a few runs. no regrets buying this board and has showed perfect performance from what they have shown online.

                                Only used the board twice now but it is way better than I am. Stiff in the middle with all the flex you could ever want on the nose and tail
