Xavier de le Rue isn't your average snowboarder. In fact, the French madman is best known for riding the steepest, scariest lines on the planet where falling simply isn't an option. The Rossignol XV Magtek Snowboard is his vehicle for pushing the boundaries of what's possible on big-mountain lines with serious exposure and variable snow conditions.
Designed for Xavier's aggressive riding style, the XV Magtek features a directional shape with 10-millimeters of taper and small tail cut-out for ample float when you're attacking big-mountain lines. This freeride specialist has a Reverse Super Directional Flex, meaning it's extremely stiff under the front binding with a stiff mid-section that mellows out as you work towards the tail. This flex pattern provides confident control for driving powerful turns, allowing you to negotiate steeps and high-speeds without chatter.
Featuring Rossignol's AmpTek All-Mountain profile, you'll find camber underfoot with rocker in the tip and tail. When you break it down, the board is 40% camber and 60% rocker (30% rocker at each tip) for effortless float at high speeds with aggressive edge hold underfoot, especially when you factor in the board's claw-like Magne-Traction 7M edges. New for this year, Rossignol added their Roller Base tech to the tip and tail. This technology raises the base edge of the tip and tail by one millimeter. This subtle 3D shaping directs snow around the board's tips for silky-smooth powder turns without plowing.
Inside this big-mountain charger, you'll find a THC CBF2 core that's crafted with two types of wood laminated with three Microcell beams and two strips of basalt along the edges. This specialized core provides extra dampening and a super-stiff flex that begs to be ridden hard and fast. Rounding out the board's impressive features is a sintered 7500 base that readily absorbs wax for lightning-fast performance.

Four Days of Hard Charging Bliss
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this before heading up to Big Sky for their last 4 days of the year. I hadn't really considered a Rosignol, but read some really good reviews and it was on a good sale at Backcountry. My main decks are T.Rice HPs, so I am used to riding a stiff, big mnt board with MTX. I packed my T.Rice HP and never strapped it on the last four days of my season. I just kept walking out to the lift with this under my arm and a grin on my face.
The board really blew me away, and gives my T.Rice a really run for its money. This thing slays in pow. It is slightly directional, but the set back isn't that noticeable until it gets into the powder. Once in the deep and fluffy it floats like a dream. On the groomers and pack it really tears it up. It is surprisingly nimble in trees. I got some air on it too. It feels stable on takeoff and landing. Grips well hanging off the side of double blacks in MT.
Xavier De La Rue has a fine deck here, at a really great price.
I am riding Cartel re:flex bindings on mine which seem pretty responsive and hard charging enough for my needs.
And I thought they only made skis
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
After an especially deep day in Tahoe I picked this board up because my current board just didn't cut it in waist deep Sierra snow. Before this board I had only owned all mountain boards, and they were always Lib Tech. I'm still a huge Lib Tech fan, and not stoked that this board isn't made in the USA, but other than that this thing rocks. The flex pattern is unique being stiffer at the tip and more flexibly at the tail, which is opposite of most boards, but man does it work. The stiff tip just blows through chopped up snow and the soft tail really lets you lean back and pick the nose up through deep snow. Not that you will need to. Even in 2’ of Sierra powder I could put all my weight on my front foot and the tip never sank. This thing has a huge nose and tapers down to a subtle tail which really makes it float great in powder. It’s quick and maneuverable edge to edge in the trees as well. What’s great is that despite the awesome powder performance this thing also rips on hard pack groomers. It has pretty aggressive magna-traction edges that cut into ice really well. It carves great and bombs down steeps with tons of confidence inspiring stability. This thing wants to just haul, it’s a very fast board. Overall I would say a great surfy freeride board for someone who is always hunting for powder but wants a board that also performs great on hard packed groomer days. I have some good boards in my quiver but after riding this everything else has been collecting dust.
