Rossignol snowboards are a leader in the snowboarding industry. They have developed technology that has increased the popularity of their snowboards and the sport of snowboarding. With some progressive shapes and high-end performance standards you will be seeing more from Rossignol snowboards. Right now their options are limited as they seem to be focusing on the more technical aspects of building a great snowboard rather than many different types of less quality snowboards. They do offer a mens line womens line boys line and girls line. In the mens division the boards are basically divided into three different price ranges - low end to high end.
Most of the options are available in the mid-range level. Rossignol offers three different types of mens boards: freestyle freeride and all mountain. In the high-end range you will only find options for freeride and freestyle boards. In the mid-level range boards are available in all three different types and in the low-level price range; boards are only available in all mountain and freestyle. Mens boards will cost you around $500 or less. Not bad compared to the other companies out there. In the womens division options are even more limited. There are no options in the high-level price range. Only two options are available in the mid-level price range one each in freestyle and all mountain.
But if you are an experienced rider it depends on your riding style that if you want to get a new board or not. If you do competitions and what not I suggest you buy a used board since you can do a lot of experimenting with it and you can have a variety of board which you can use for the competitions or when you actually go to the slopes to ride for fun. The thing about buying a used snowboard is that if you cant find one locally like the classified ads youre going to have to go online. In my earlier posts I talked about how crucial it is to know your right snowboard sizing when picking out a board and if you cant test the board youre buying its going to take a bit harder work for you. But going online to buy your used snowboard is a great idea because there are a bunch of deals out there waiting for you.
And the Roxy snowboard is getting the full treatment with all the Magne Traction technology that other boards produced by Mervin are getting. Of course Mervin Manufacturing is doing this because they are owned by Quiksilver a deal made back in the 90s. It doesnt hurt Roxy that their pro riders arent too shabby either. Torah Bright is the premier name you might recognize. Her new Bright Series is just one of the lines that Roxy is expanding into. Alongside Torah are riders Sarah Burke a two times X-Games Gold Medalist and Kjersti Buaas an Olympic snowboarder. These girls have shredded parks and pipes that would have most guys shaking in their snowboarding boots. Whether or not you still doubt if Roxy is legit you cant argue that the girls who ride them certainly are.
