Venture into the unknown.
Designed to help big-mountain legend Xavier De La Rude access and ride the gnarliest, steepest, and most remote big-mountain lines, the Rossignol XV Magtek Splitboard features high-powered construction and a nearly unsinkable shape to push freeriding to the next level.
Built to handle 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.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This board is absolutely amazing. I've taken it down everything from mellow <30 degree pow slopes to steep and not-so-deep epics. One thing everyone talks about with splitboards are their ability to ride downhill; which is where this board is most fun! However, most of the time spent on a tour is spent hiking uphill, which is why I love this board. It's lightweight and functional on the uphills and absolutely rips going down.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is an amazing board as it should be with Xavier's name on it. It is lightweight and solid and one of my favorite things about it is the medium-soft and tapered tail allows for easy slashing on any terrain, and no speed limit when you shift your balance point to the front of the board. Most boards ride good in powder this one is a level or two up from most.
Which "skin width" size does this board use?
