The Rossignol Taipan AmpTek is playful and fun—just what you need when throwing down tricks in the park, or shredding a steep, pow-covered face.

  • 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
  • Wood core is made from a single type of wood, and is vertically laminated for durability and even flexing
  • 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

Recommended rider weights are a general guideline. Please keep in mind that additional factors can affect which size will best suit your needs. If you have questions regarding ski and snowboard sizing, please contact us at 1-800-426-4840.
