This page is provided for reference to historical product information.

The Rossignol Taipan AmpTek was designed with versatility in mind. All-mountain camber gives you the freedom to rip the hardpack on 1 run and slash the pow on the next without sacrificing performance.

  • Amplification Technology (AmpTek) blends camber between the feet and early-rise tip and tail to give you mind-blowing performance across the entire mountain
  • Camber between the feet means faster transitions, more control, better edge pressure and more grip when riding the park and on piste
  • Reverse camber tip and tail offer smooth landings, enhanced floation in powder, more pop and better bump absorption
  • Directional shape concentrates pop in the tail and offers plenty of overall float and control; twin flex makes riding regular or switch simple
  • Sidecut gets progressively deeper towards the tail so you can ease into a turn at the contact point and get a powerful, snappy exit
  • Cross-woven fiberglass wraps a vertically laminated wood core; it's the industry standard for durability and smoothness, and Rossi offers it at an unbeatable price
  • Sandwich construction gives riders solid edge hold and added strength, with quick rider-to-board energy transmission for ultimate response
  • Sintered 4400 base is fast on the snow; Stone Grind finishing accelerates the friction-reducing processes of the base to achieve maximum speed
  • Snowboard deck and base colors may vary from online photo
