WONKAwrote a review of Rossignol XV Snowboard on April 6, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Honestly the last directional pow board I had ridden was a few years ago and an old Burton Fish. This thing was night and day difference and actually extremely fun to ride in almost all conditions but more so in the deep! In 18+ years of riding I had never been on a board with magna traction. I've heard it can take a few days to get used to but honestly it took maybe 1 run and I had it dialed and no issues trusting it at all. It grips hard on the ice and am very impressed. It's a stiff board so don't expect to butter on it but it's seriously fun! Probably one of the best years of my life getting 10+ deep powder days with this thing and I couldn't be happier. All smiles here and so glad I had it! Getting the split version for next year.
