Rossignol Taipan Mid Wide Snowboard 2012

Awards from Transworld are building up and the sick, smooth ride of the Rossignol Taipan Mid Wide Snowboard proves it. Designed with versatility in mind, the Taipan Mid Wide Snowboard features the AmpTek All-Mountain camber giving you the freedom to rip the hardpack on one run, and slash the pow on the next without sacrificing an ounce of performance.
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 camber-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.
Designed for intermediate to advanced riders, there is nowhere that this board can’t take you. The AmpTek All-Mountain camber will have you floatin’ in the pow and shreddin’ everywhere else.
Flex
Flex Rating – 6 (1 Soft – 10 Stiff)
Construction and Core
The Wood 6420 core features 6420 cross-weave fiberglass wrapped around a vertically laminated wood core that gives you durability and performance without breaking the bank.
The deep progressive radius gets progressively longer as you move towards the nose, but it is centered and very short between the feet for instant reactivity and a consistent feel when riding switch.
Shape
Directional Twin for smooth carving and effortless pow runs
Sidewalls, Edges and Base
Magne-Traction maximizes the edge pressure between the feet so you can ride with more control and stability in the gnarliest conditions
Sintered 440 base

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker shapes seek to give you both hard-carving edgehold on firm snow from camber underfoot with enhanced turnability and float in powder from the rockered tip and tail. This profile is increasingly popular for freeride boards designed primarily for soft snow.
  • Flex Rating: Stiff
    Stiff
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
