Product Info

The Rossignol Taipan Amptek Mid Wide Snowboard takes all-terrain freestyle to the unkempt masses. That is to say, Joel, who has been crashing on my couch for a month without paying rent or utilities but still has gas money to get to Crystal Mountain everyday. Joel, if you read this: Watch your back. AmpTek All-Mountain combines traditional camber between the feet, with moderate rocker on the tip and tails. Overall the board has power, stability, edge grip and playful float. With directional flex and a full wood core, the Taipan is built for all the riders who live to, well, ride.

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

Directional All-MountainDirectional flex with a stiffer flex under the back foot provides added control and a stiff waist, allowing for more stability at high speeds. A softer flex under the front foot allows for easier turning.

Flex Rating: 5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)Perfect for all mountain riding

Shape

Directional TwinA stiff tail for punch on kickers and solid landings with a softer waist and nose for smoothnes

Sidecut

7.4 to 8.1 m Deep Progressive

Core

Wood 6420 CoreA single type of wood, vertically laminated, gives you durability and comfort without breaking the bank.

Laminates

Glass FiberGlass has greater elongation before break than carbon and comes in multiple weights and weavings, making it the #1 choice for customized flex and torsional resistance. Glass fiber also stabilizes the mechanical properties of the wood core over time.

Base

Sintered 4400A high density stone finished sintered base: fast, durable and a lot easier to service than the 7500 base

    Comments about Rossignol Taipan Amptek Mid Wide Snowboard 2013:

    From the first second that I was strapped on the board, I knew what I was in for. Balanced, light, and sleek. The board handles like a boss, and I highly doubt that anyone would disagree...

      Comments about Rossignol Taipan Amptek Mid Wide Snowboard 2013:

      This board has been nothing short of awesome. I didn't expect much with the price I paid for it but I am thoroughly amazed at how durable the board has been. I have been riding for about three years now and consider myself an upper intermediate who likes to do simple tricks and ride some park features. This board has been great for everything I do.

            I look forward to using this product to make the next step in y development as a rider. Greater pop will dramatically help with getting air off jumps. It's also gorgeous and I can't wait to take it out.
