Rossignol Taipan Amptek Snowboard 2014

Rossignol
Shop all Rossignol
Designed with versatility in mind, the 2014 Rossignol Taipan Snowboard features All-Mountain AmpTek, a 60% rocker/40% camber profile designed for a forgiving ride on hardpack and easygoing float in the powder. With a medium flex, the Taipan Amptek is a park ready board that performs well in search for hidden goods all over the mountain. Progression is just around the corner with the Rossignol Taipan Amptek Snowboard.
Rocker Type
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.
 
Flex
Flex Rating: 5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - Perfect for all mountain riding
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.
Shape
Directional Twin - Twin shape with a slight setback. Mount it at recommended for a slight directional feel, or mount it true twin for freestyle domination.
Core
Wood 6420 Core - 6420 cross-weave fiberglass wrapped around a vertically laminated wood core that gives you durability and performance without breaking the bank.
 
Laminates
Glass Fiber - Has 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 4400 - A high density stone finished sintered base: fast, durable and a lot easier to service than the 7500 base
Binding Compatibility
2x4 Insert pattern

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freestyle
    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.
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • 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: Medium
    Medium
    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.
