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.
AMPTEK All-Mountain A 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.
Directional All-Mountain Directional 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
Directional Twin A stiff tail for punch on kickers and solid landings with a softer waist and nose for smoothnes.
7.4 to 8.1 m Deep Progressive
Wood 6420 Core A single type of wood, vertically laminated, gives you durability and comfort without breaking the bank.
Glass Fiber Glass 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.
Sintered 4400 A high density stone finished sintered base: fast, durable and a lot easier to service than the 7500 base
