Snowboard Iskola

Board: Rossignol One LF

Size: 156

Camber Option: Amptek All Mountain. A 60% camber with a 40% rocker in the tip and tail.

Bindings: Rome Black Label

Stance: 21.5 Wide 15 Negative 12 Goofy

Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10

My Weight: 200lbs

Resort: Copper Mountain

Conditions: Sunny bluebird skies, warm temps, zero wind, perfect corduroy, warm chunder snow, and typical early season conditions.

Flex: They softened this board up which means it’s slightly below a middle of the road. This makes the flex points where the camber meets the rocker more pronounced and you can bend the board more right there which is just outside the insert packs. There’s an abundance of torsional flex as well which makes the board very playful.

Stability: Stability is not something this thing has, it’s very lively. You feel this thing hit every bump and bend in the snow. At speeds there’s a lot of chatter in the tips and that resonates back underfoot. While the L.I.T.E. frame absorbs some of this it doesn’t fully dissipate it.

Ollies: Having camber underfoot is nice and it gives this board snap. You can easily load it up and feel it activated right at the rocker point to create optimal snap.

Pop On Jumps: This thing will handle jumps that’s for sure. It doesn’t feel like it’s not snapping off the lip and it will get you to where you need to go. Granted the biggest thing I was able to hit in the Woodward preseason park was maybe 5 feet so had to get a little creative with some other features to test it.

Butterability: That rocker zone in the tips gives an immense sweet spot and flex point to lock into presses. You can roll in and out of a press on the snow with ease. When it hits the camber zone it locks in and you notice the rebound. You can over press it and have it wash out so make sure to not get your weight way out over the tips.

Jibbing: Slow or fast this thing locks into a press with ease and keeps it consistent. That rocker zone holds a press but the camber zone engages and gives you snap out of any feature. Having camber between the feet it will lock in and hug a rail fine.

Carving: This board transitions quickly from toe to heel. You can feel it lock in and hold on due to the serrated edges (magnetraction) and not wash out. If you really center flex the board and push into it you can slingshot out of turns. At high speeds in rutted out terrain it does tend to kick out on a carve so be prepared to adjust for that.

Rider in Mind: All mountain freestyle rider.

Personal Thoughts: They tweaked the core profiling and flex pattern on this again. It’s softer again. This makes it ride more like a Jibsaw and less like what it was. If you want more stability and a slightly rigid ride check out the Revenant. If you’re looking for something more playful with setback that’s all mountain versatile then here you go.
