Product Info

An all-mountain shred-stick with style, the Rossignol Krypto Magtek Snowboard is a toned down version of the XV Magtek. The Krypto has a nice firm flex and 60% rocker/40% camber story for cruising the whole mountain with power and style. Combined with the amazing edge hold of Magne-Traction, the Rossignol Krypto Magtek Snowboard is ready to rip the mountain in any condition.

Product Details

Rocker Type

AmpTek All-MountainA combination of 60% rocker and 40% camber gives you more control, stability, edge pressure and smoother landings due to the rocker profile in the nose and tail and camber profile under the bindings.

Flex

Super DirectionalVery directional flex / Extremely stiff under the back foot for maximum control / Stiff waist for stability at high speed / Medium stiff under the front foot for smoother turns

Flex Rating: (1 Softest - 10 Stiffest)8, A stiff flex for intermediate to advance riders looking for more precision control at high speeds, whether it be in the park, pipe, or anywhere on the hill

Shape

DirectionalThe classic, most versatile snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition. Don't be afraid to ride it backwards!

Core

Twin Wood 3Hard and soft woods laminated together for a unique blend of durability, smoothness and lower swing weight.

Laminates

Glass FiberHas greater elongation before break than carbon and comes in multiple weights and weavings making it our #1 choice for customized flex and torsional resistance while also stabilizing the mechanical properties of our woodcores over time

Base

Sintered 7500A super high density UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight) sintered base with a stone finish gives the board the fastest and most durable base to date.

Edges

Magne-Traction 7MThe original 7M version features 7 deep bumps distributed along the edges. Magne-traction maximizes edge pressure between the feet, bringing this once unreachable "dead area" back to life for more control and stability in the gnarliest conditions.

This board is Amazing. there are no other words to describe how good the ride is. Its a very stable, fast directional board. I couldn't feel any chatter even when going fast on bumpy, and icy snow. This board absorbs the harsh east coast conditions. On powder (POW POW) this board most likely feels like a surfboard. Also its very responsive with little effort. Overall i cant stress how amazing and fun this board is for an east cost rider.

This is a solid board for higher speed (8/10) charging. Lots of edge grip, but sometimes too grippy in soft snow. It will cut right through packed snow and pitch you if you're not careful. Base is tough as nails and medium fast. Great in powder if you ride it set back. Overall a great board only weakness is it could use some carbon or basalt to give it more stiffness, I would rate it as a medium stiff. Great for upper intermediate riders, maybe a little unstable for advanced/experts when hitting big lines.

    Comments about Rossignol Krypto Magtek Snowboard 2014:

    Here is my story, I have been boarding for several years (17) so I am an old guy in the snowboarder world. I have used several boards over the years and this board is true to it description. I am 6'2" 230 and this board floats great, and holds an edge great. The graphics are eye catching and unique, the only reason I did not give it a 5 out of 5 is because the top sheet already got banged up in some light use, I have gone in power and the nose pops right out like the description states.

      I used this board recently, just as the north shore mtn's received an amazing dump of dry pow. I set my bindings back and went for an amazing powder day up at whistler. This thing handled very well in the powder, even in sections with almost chest deep powder. How ever this board is an all mtn board and with the magne trak whatever ridges on the sides of the board provided solid edge I'd dare say better than traditional edge hold on the Icy parts that formed later in the day.

      Comments about Rossignol Krypto Magtek Snowboard 2014:

      This board not only lived up to my expectations, but it blew them all away. I got out on the board for the first time today and ended up doing a 6 hour session. The conditions were mostly groomed, but there was a bit of chunder later in the afternoon. The Krypto handled them all with ease.

      First, I need to address the look of the board. I wasn't all that excited when I first ordered it, but it looks stunning in person. The way the wood is allowed to show through the graphics is amazing. I got lots of compliments about it today. I personally love the look of bright, solid color bindings on this (see photo).

      The Krypto is extremely stable at speed. I would say that is what this board does best. And it is exceptionally fast. I felt like I could go faster and hold lines longer than I ever have before with the board. Carving is sharp and precise. Flicking the board from one side to the next is almost effortless, and very easy. You're never fighting the board to get it to go where you want. I didn't do a lot of park work, but I did get the opportunity to hit some smaller ramps. I was easily able to hold my line on landing and the board took the impact well.

      The only con I can think of is that it did get dinged up fairly quickly with nothing rough happening to it today. No trees, no collisions, and only one bail on the day, yet there's a few dings toward the tail and the laminate is starting to come up on a very small section of the nose.

      Overall, I can't speak highly enough of the board. I would buy it again and again.

        Upgraded to this board from a Burton Baron and it has completely changed my days on the mountain. It is fast, responsive, can cut into the east coast ice when needed to hold an edge. Held up exceptionally well in powder and hard pack and the rocker/ camber/ rocker has been great in all conditions. Best part is the normal model is wide enough that I was able to ditch my old wide model board and haven't had any issues (size 12 boots). Was able to drop from a 162 wide to the 159 and not lose any stability or speed.

          I recently purchased this board when I realized my Burton 56 was cracked halfway across the nose. After reading reviews for several days, I opted to give this board a try. Turns out this board rides as good or even better than my old Burton. I cannot speak regarding the durability as I have not owned it long enough. This board can hold a serious heel or toe edge in packed powder and icy conditions.

              This is a great board, used to ride a Forum manual and just switched to this even though this board is an 8/10 on stiffness it still has tons of pop and is easy to jump. The magna traction is awesome for days in which the snow isn't so great. Graphics are slick and would match well with most dark bindings. The 159cm is plenty wide for my size 12/13 boots, and provides lots of float for me as I'm 6'2" and 170 lbs. gotten to ride some ice days at keystone as well as a pow day at keystone and Vail and this board truly exces in everything. Rossignol has made a great board and evo is selling it at a incredible price for all the features packed into this board.

                I should write this review after I get some more powder days in, but I've had so much fun on it I'm betting it won't disappoint in waist deep snow. This board rides so smooth and fast. I ride all mountain with the occasional pass through the park (no rails, boxes, etc.) and this is the only board I've needed. I was a little skeptical of the graphics at first because they are so loud and I prefer more toned down, but the price was right and now I really like the graphics. Definitely a head turner.

                  This board is super duper amazing. The shape is very good and versatile, you have classic camber between your legs and also a really aggressive rocker in the nose, good stiffness and curved edges... It's good in most conditions, you can shred groomed slopes or craziest powder, icy wild mountains or whatever you want - this thing can handle almost everything. One thing to rule them all! Except parks. Screw them parks! Stiffness is just right, not too weak, not too stiff. Very stable, predictable, comfortable and easy to operate at same time. The edges are just maaaaad! This thing just literally rips mountain apart! I'm in love with this board, I would marry it! Why you still reading this? Go buy one yourself!

                    If you are looking for a fast board that you can take pretty much anywhere, look no further. I rode this board everywhere and it performed well all over the mountain. I took it through the terrain park, the woods, runs where I just bombed it down the hill, from power to ice this board never let me down. I've had a lot of fun on this board and it was able to take everything I threw at it, and even though it's a directional board, riding switch wasn't a problem. The graphics on this board are amazing which is a plus. I've abused this board quite a bit and it really holds up well, after all I've done to it there are only minimal signs of wear.

                    If you are a mid to upper level rider that wants a good all mountain board and you'd rather go fast than have a board made for riding switch, I'd highly recommend this.

                      Bought the board mostly for all mountain cruising. Does well on blue groomers for speed and carving, magtrax adds a nice edge and holds on icy patches. Not enough snow for powder runs yet this season, hence glades are also closed. :(

                      I purchased this board before my Christmas 2014 trip to smugglers notch. When I got there it was slushy, the board rode great. The middle of my trip we went down to 10 degrees and a lot of the slushy base froze.
                      The next day we went out and it was very icy.
                      This board handled great.

                      I was able to keep my edges.

                      After the snowmaking caught up, and we had some softer stuff underneath, it was great as well.

                      I highly recommend the board.

                        I live on the east coast and just got to try this board out for the first time last weekend and I love it. This board handled the ice and the soft stuff very well.

                        This is my second board my first being a pro board that I wasn't ready for. I am 6'4 215 lbs if I had to rate the stiffness ID say medium not even close to my proboard so less stable at the speeds I'm going now. This board is however everything Ive been looking for fun poppy ride. Butters well for my size 164w catches great air off of most anything, takes off quick and is a good all mountain board just like I wanted. Evo gave me a good price and held it over the weekend till I had money in the bank they are amazing.

                        I got this board to be my all around board. It's good in powder, groomers, high speed, and it CAN hit jibs(not a big park board)

                        Plus that magne traction tho...

                        This is a solid board for higher speed (8/10) charging. Lots of edge grip, but sometimes too grippy in soft snow. It will cut right through packed snow and pitch you if you're not careful. Base is tough as nails and medium fast. Great in powder if you ride it set back. Overall a great board only weakness is it could use some carbon or basalt to give it more stiffness, I would rate it as a medium stiff. Great for upper intermediate riders, maybe a little unstable for advanced/experts when hitting big lines.
