The House:

Size: 158

Camber Option: Amptek All Mountain. Equally matched camber to rocker camrocker.

Bindings: Rome Black Label

Stance: 21.5 Wide 15 Negative 12 Goofy

Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10

My Weight: 200lbs

Resort: Arapahoe Basin

Conditions: Sunny bluebird skies, warm temps, slush, chop, chunder, and perfect hero snow on the groomers.

Flex: The overall flex is slightly above a middle of the road but it’s not overly stiff. There’s more flex in the tips which is accentuated by the rocker zones. The middle is slightly stiffer but has a bunch of torsional flex that really lets you twist this board.

Stability: This boards moderately stable. That means on a groomer you get the typical chatter in the tips and it slightly resonates back underfoot. In choppy terrain it can get bucked around if you’re not careful so keep those knees bent.

Ollies: The snap is there on this board. It’s mostly predictable and easy to load up with solid rebound. You’ll notice that when the camber section engages the rocker it gives a springboard effect that gives you boost. Launching rollers, sidehits, and whatever else is in front of you is relatively easy.

Pop On Jumps: This board can handle jumps whether small to some large-ish features. The snap is there and lets you boost if you want to or you can be laid back and have the lip toss you. Either way this has more than enough to jump with.

Butterability: That rocker in the tips is great for pressing into. There’s a flex point right where the camber meets it and it just holds a press easily with very minimal fight. The camber section gives it just a little spring for when you need to get off a feature.

Jibbing: That sweet spot for buttering carries over to jibbing and you feel this thing just lock in and hold a press on a feature with the right amount of snap to get you off the end. Going sideways it locks in perfectly and just feels secure without clapping out.

Carving: There’s a consistent edge to edge power transmission but it’s not overwhelming. This board locks in underfoot due to the serrated edges and lets you ankle steer when you’re being more mellow, but the second you want to drive it you can. This lets you lay it over and push hard off the tail. There’s power where you want it for hard carves but by and large it’s mellow enough for just turning around a groomer and not worrying about anything.

Rider in Mind: All mountain freestyle rider.

Personal Thoughts: This is one of those under rated boards that I constantly forget to recommend but is actually really solid. It gets the job done, it never falters, and you can do just about anything with it. Sure you won’t get any cool guy points because of the Rossignol name, but who cares if it works and works well.
