I have to pick just one? Sweet!

I got on this board for a pretty specific purpose. I wanted to have something to ride on those days when I was going to be building a kicker somewhere and wanted a floaty board that I could ride switch on and spin with ease. When I got on the Angus for the first time however, it was hard to get back on any other board. The park board and the big mountain board seemed like more of a hassle most days, and I found myself just wanting to ride the Angus all the time. So what makes the angus so awesome? The all Mountain Amptek allows the board to float as if it was much larger while still providing the pop to really launch off lips and get up onto those rails. Rossignol's all mountain Amptek takes a normally cambered style board and brings the contact points in to the outside of the binding inserts. From there, rocker takes over and gives the board an early rise tip and tail. Carbon-kevlar makes this board a little stiff for the pure jibber but thats not to say you can't have a good time riding some rails and I found that once I adjusted for a little extra stiffness, I was really able to lock down some solid presses. But as advertised this board is truly awesome because you can ride it EVERYWHERE! from side-country pow runs to park laps the Angus will deliver a responsive yet playful ride for the intermediate to advanced rider!
See you on the Mountain
