Product Info

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.

Product Details

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 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.


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
