Riding lines where falling simply isn't an option, Xavier de le Rue demands stability and strength out of his board for straight-lining chutes, floating across powder, and holding an edge on icy cirques. The Rossignol XV Magtek Snowboard is his vehicle for pushing the boundaries of what's possible on big-mountain faces with serious exposure and variable snow conditions.
Designed for Xavier's aggressive riding style, the XV Magtek features a tapered directional shape so you can point it down steeps without the nose diving under icy crusts or submerging in waist-deep powder. As expected, its stiff flex ensures maximum stability at speeds that would simply overwhelm other boards. Tailored to Xavier's riding style, the board's flex pattern is inverted, meaning it's stiffest along the nose and slightly softer along the tail. This inverted flex pattern delivers the stability needed to charge over chop without being bucked off-balance.
The XV Magtek is predominately camber along the board's effective edge, with rocker at the nose and tail for increased float and catch-free turns across hardpack. Roller Tip upturns the base along the nose, subtly redirecting snow for smoother tracking. Magne-Traction serrated edges grip onto ice and bulletproof snow without slipping out. Other notable features include basalt fibers for increased pop and damping, and an aramid reinforcement that smooths out unnerving chatter when you're hauling at serious speeds.

Xavier Le Ru hits the biggest baddest lines and this board is built to help him achieve his goals. It pretty much is a race car. Why? First the base is insane. They took rossignol's fastest strongest base. core shots? forget about it. Wax on wax off your ripping. Next they they used the magic of basalt on the edges three Microcell beams. This provides extra damping so you dont get loose and an extra stiff flex which stiffens this baby up and provides that solid feel that xavier needs on big, fast lines. They threw magna traction in which helps you rail turns by increasing contact points. On a normal board your have 2 but using magna traction which increases that to 7 a side. Wana turn ice to pow? I do. Then the shape. The profile is a 40/60 rocker/camber. This is the perfect amount so you aren't washing out and float with ease through the pow. They also have a small cutout on the tail to help float, and a pointy nose to spear through the pow after re appearing out of a drop. Finally the artwork on this board is insane. It really pops and you always get complements. No stickers on this baby. Overall if you are looking for a hard charging all mountain board that is oriented towards pow this is your board.
