WHY CHOOSE THE XV
AMPTEK ELITE ROCKER
Our three patented blends of rocker and camber are each tailored to a specific riding style and intensity level. Featuring stiff extremities and a softer waist, AMPTEK ELITE is composed of 60-100% camber with an applicable percentage of rocker at the extremities, offering explosive edge grip, pop, and stability.
Rossignol snowboard FLEX ratings range from softest (1) to stiffest (9) so you can select the best flex pattern for your skill and riding style. Softer boards are easier to manipulate, stiffer boards offer more power and stability.
SERRATED EDGES 7M
Our original 7M SERRATED EDGE technology offers seven points of edge contact (three between the inserts and two on either side of the inserts), expanding grip to once unreachable areas of the board for maximum stability and edge hold in the firmest, iciest snow conditions.
Offered as walls or built in cores, ABS provides enhanced durability while keeping the core safe from moisture.
ARAMID (A.K.A. KEVLAR®)
Commonly used in ballistical rated body armor fabric, Aramid dampens vibrations and softens rough landings
Stronger and lighter than fiberglass and with more elasticity than carbon, basalt fibers enhance power and stability while removing vibrations.
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. Glass fiber also stabilizes the mechanical properties of our wood cores over time.
A PU material that’s integrated into wood cores to reduce weight and deliver increased snap, pop and liveliness.
REVERSE SUPER DIRECTIONAL
• Very directional flex
• Extremely stiff under the front foot for confident control and maximum power
• Stiff waist for stability at high speed
• Medium stiff under the rear foot for smoother turns and nimble maneuverability
Triple Hybrid Core (THC) infused with CBF2: 2 types of wood laminated with 3 Microcell beams, combined with 2 strips of basalt delivering in lower weight with increased balance, control and edge grip.
BASE TECHNOLOGY: An industy-first, Rossignol’s Roller technology raises the edges of the snow by milling the core of the board. The Tip Roller raises the edges off 1mm of the snow just past the contact points to reduce weight at the tip and tail and direct snow around the board for increased stability at high speed and floatation in powder.
